Default Veteran NBA referee hired as Director of Officiating; will lead clinic at combine

CHICAGO—Ron Olesiak, a 22-year veteran National Basketball Association referee, has joined the Premier Basketball League front office as Director of Officiating.
Olesiak, a Chicago native, will continue to work with the NBA and WNBA as an observer of officials.
“We are extremely fortunate that Ron has agreed to join our staff,” said Ed Schumer, commissioner of the PBL. “His experience on the court and his knowledge about NBA administrative procedures brings tremendous value to the Premier Basketball League. With his vision and ability to teach, train, and develop officials, I believe we will be able to build the best staff of minor league referees in the country. This is yet another example of our commitment to make the Premier Basketball League the preeminent professional basketball minor league in North America,” Schumer said.
One of Olesiak’s first duties will be to run the league’s first Officials Certification Clinic at the upcoming league combine, October 19-20 in Bloomington, Ill. Prospective officials will receive classroom instruction including video review, testing, and certification. There will also be on court observation and instruction in conjunction with the games being played as part of the combine. Cost for the clinic is $100.
Officials interested in attending the clinic should go to http://thepbl.com/ref-application for more information and to register online.

The mission of the Premier Basketball League is to provide its member teams with the tools necessary to succeed both on and off the court, its players with opportunities and connections to further their playing careers, and most of all, its fans with an affordable, positive entertainment experience. In essence, the PBL strives to live up to its name as the top minor basketball league in the nation.
