Standards of Excellence

The Standards of Excellence (SOE) are part of ABOA’s performance assessment program which support the Performance and Assessment Strategy. The SOE articulates the foundational personality, character traits, and basic expectations for officials – on and off the court. The SOE are designed to incorporate a personal self-evaluation to provide a way to evaluate your strengths and determine areas of improvement which should inform an officials future goal setting with clarity and direction.


The Standards of Excellence are set high in order to be your best along a development pathway and are uncompromising when it comes to meeting them because they are core to the ABOA’s Mission, Vision and Values.
