DO you think you have the skills to be a PBA referee? Do you have what it takes to make the right call amid the boos and catcalls from rival fans? And do you have the guts to stand by your call with Yeng Guiao in your face?
If you can answer in the affirmative to all three questions, here's your chance.
The PBA is looking for men and women who can beef up its current pool of referees. If you're interested you can file your application at the PBA office or at the Smart Araneta Coliseum during games until Oct. 21.
Tryouts will be held on October 22, 24 and 25, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the JCSGO Gym in Cubao, Quezon City.
