Our History

MBOA was organized in 1958. During its existence, the association has developed and trained several officials who currently officiate in the NCAA Division I Men and Women's Basketball organization and the NBA. MBOA officials are highly trained and recognized throughout Georgia and many surrounding states for their officiating abilities and knowledge of the game. The officials within this association have officiated all at levels of the State Tournament and Finals games hosted by the Georgia High School Association.


Our leadership board has over 100 years of high-level officiating experience. Our association includes both High School and Collegiate experience officials that have also trained at the Pro level. We pride our organization on training and teaching our officials the "Right Way" to officiate the game of basketball.

If you are interested in joining an association that is family-oriented, fun, about educating and training with a glowing reputation with Georgia High School Association, look no further; we are the association for you!
