DBOA Training philosophy;
At DBOA, the training program will center around three objectives. One core objective of our training program is to get our officials to the right spot on the floor to maximize their ability to make accurate play calls. The remaining two objectives are knowledge of the rules and the use of crisp, strong mechanics. Everyone in our chapter must be trained accordingly such that we are ALL on the same page..........Billy White, DBOA Vice President
