MAGBO is in the Hofstra House!

MAGBO is in the Hofstra House! Recently, members of MAGBO, and their friends, were treated to a throwback women’s game at Hofstra University. The women Pride donned their Flying Dutchwomen era uniforms versus the James Madison University Dukes. In a closely contested game, JMU prevailed to tighten their first place grip in the CAA Conference.


The best part of camp was Sheri giving me a 20 minute post game breakdown observation, Maggie running all over the court after each call you made and there were some pretty great lectures. Everyone was pleasant.


The observers and clinicians were very detailed and positive in their feedback. In addition, the guest speakers were very knowledgeable and provided great insights into the nature of the business.


Best part of camp was the classroom lectures. Being able to learn valuable lessons from current and past officials was very informative. Each lecturer gave their own story which made every discussion unique. Maggie discussed court presence and Joe V. talked good and bad plays!


Staff was amazing and so friendly. They told you exactly what you needed to improve on and complimented you when you made a correct call.


Maggie T. is always very informative and has a special way to communicate her information to her audience.


Staff was great. I will admit the MAGBO camp has improved each year I have attended. To have college assignors also on site was a great to the camp. Never know what opportunities can come out of coming to improve on the craft.
