Bankstown Basketball Association is home to one of the largest and most successful referees' programs in New South Wales. With over 190 officials and a regular training and development program, Bankstown referees represent the Association at all levels of the game, from NBL and WNBL, through the various ABA and State Leagues, down to Sydney Junior Championships.

Bankstown referees also service over 150 junior and senior domestic games per week, ranging from Under 10 junior games through to Division 1 senior competition.

Bankstown Basketball Association employs a full-time Referees' Development Manager, to manage the program. This involves the recruitment of new officials and development of existing officials, as well as the rostering and administration of the program.
