Welcome to SJABO

The St. John's Association of Basketball Officials is a organization of basketball officials providing services to the eastern region of the island of Newfoundland. It is an affiliate of the Canadian Association of Basketball Officials (CABO) and the Newfoundland Association of Basketball Officials (NABO). We work closely with provincial sport governing bodies, schools and leagues to provide officials for basketball events from the grammar school level through High School and local adult leagues.
