The New S.N.A.P.

Welcome to the SUBOA New Applicant Program. We’ve made changes. We had to because of Covid-19. We also wanted to embrace the the world we now know so classes are offered via Zoom, Google Classroom and in conjunction with IAABO University. We feel IAABO University provides a robust online learning opportunity which we can enhance with “hands-on” education. Okay, computer contact isn’t hands-on but we still provide learning on a personal, face to face way with the ability for you to ask and answer questions. Please, take advantage of our 50 years of training basketball officials!

  • NYSUBOA SNAP Fee – $100 – Live, online lessons and email support.
    • Includes Rule &  Case Book. 
  • NYSUBOA Floor Fee – $50 – Floor work provides mechanics, game practice and floor exam. Students must provide their own uniform.*
