It is truly becoming a tradition that Kuba prepares a very tight agenda for his camps. In this manner Survival Camp is indifferent. The aim is not to exhaust the camp participants, but to maximize the time and resources investment towards the goal of being prepared for the next season and each personal goal that people bring to such a special event. Let’s have a closer look on how was it this year.

We would like to send a special thank you to VTB league for supporting the Survival Referee.pl Camp this year. VTB league provided referee shirts, that campers were using with pleasure, as on the attached picture. We are wishing that in the future some of the campers will be officiating in VTB league as well ?

This year for the Survival Referee.pl Camp we cooperated with the company RIND, who sponsored great quality t-shirts for the training and caps. Thanks to RIND the group was practicing in a new, innovative sport wear, produced with advanced technologies. RIND delivers a sports clothing for many different disciplines (basketball, volleyball, ice hockey, motocross, bowling, dancewear, rowing). They are also supporting basketball refereeing with high class wears. The equipment can be ordered on their page from the available collecting, and can be individually tailored for the order needs.

Summer is here, season break, school break and so doesn’t it mean we shall have a break from refereeing? Maybe in a sense yes, because we need to rest the body and mind, get the energy, reevaluate our goals, check where we are and where we want to be. All in all, we need to get ready for the next season, this means we need to do some work ourselves, but also to make progress we need help of qualified instructors and colleagues, who will boost our preparation phase with additional challenges. Here is why in summer it is good to attend the camps. Many people are joining summer camps from different reasons. As the Survival Referee Camp 2018 in Poland is about to start on Monday, we have asked the participants to tell us little bit about themselves and share with us on how they see the camp fits into their preparation program for the next season.


We would like to come back to our campers from the first edition. We went to check on how are they doing and how was their season. You can see below in follow up on how the survival training camp in Poland contributed to the last year’s season performance for the two of our campers: Asimina and Hande.

After last year’s successful first deployment of the new idea of the camp we were sure to repeat the format this year again. The registration is up and running for the 2018, you can find it here APPLICATION FORM.

For those of you who are hearing about it for the first time we would like to explain the idea behind the new format. This camp is to help referees even more to improve by doing extensive preparation before the season that would combine organic activities for referees, same as for any other sport athletes.
