Officials JTT Memorial Scholarship


Our fall training tournament is named in loving memory of Jessica Thiedemann. Jessica was a full time university student and a hard working referee with exceptional enthusiasm, and a passion for helping young referees grow. She was dedicated to Calgary Minor Basketball and always maintained a positive attitude on and off the court. She was actively involved in training clinics, and always strived to be the best she could possibly be. These traits continue to be an inspiration to all who knew her.

In honour and memory of Jessica, her parents established a bursary to support Calgary Minor Basketball Officials.  The Jessica Thiedemann Bursary is awarded to a referee in post secondary school who, in the opinion of the Referees' Leadership Committee, best exhibits the traits which Jessica displayed herself. The recipient of this bursary will be a dedicated referee who is currently enrolled in a post-secondary program, and exhibits the qualities listed below.

If you are enrolled, as of September of the current year, in a post-secondary program, and you would like to be considered for this award, please complete the online application. The Committee will then consider all such applications, as well as others we feel are deserving of consideration, and set up interviews for the top candidates during the fall training sessions.
