About Us

About us

Tailor Made Officials Basketball organization is a non profit educational based basketball association. We are governed by (NFHS) National Federation High school Rules.  We provide our Officials for basketball tournaments, mens leagues, womens leagues, wheel chair leagues and all childrens leagues including AAU throughout the United States. The officials not only officiate the games and enforce the rules, they also teach the athletes the rules of the game in the process. Through positive interaction and mentorship, the athletes take more from the game than a win or loss. They take away a positive experience with Officials who want to teach and pass on knowledge that they possess about the rules of the game and life. ​Tailor Made Officials posses Integrity, honesty & respect as well as are passionate, professionalism and are in love with their craft. Tailor Made Officials is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).

CEO

Will Smith was born and raised in Oakland, CA.  He started his officiating career in 1997 and founded Tailor Made Officials Basketball Association in 2014 in hopes of providing a positive sport experience for at risk youth.  Under Will's leadership TMOBA has quickly become one of the largest and most respected officials associations in the state.  

Will is a firm believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and has dedicated himself to spreading His teachings, both on and off the court.  When he is not officiating Will counsels individuals who have drug and alcohol addictions and serves as an inspirational speaker to at risk and and misguided youth.  He also volunteers his time as an assistant coach for various basketball organizations and enjoys training athletes.  

Outside of officiating and volunteerism Will enjoys classic car shows and rebuilding classic cars.  He has a deep love for his community and is proud to be working towards a better Bay Area.  

Our goal & future

Our goal is to raise 10 million dollars to build a state of the art sports facility. That will provide jobs for youth and young adults of all ethnic cultures and backgrounds.

It will not only provide jobs but mentorships and structure from our adult staff. Tailor Made Officials Basketball Association wants to be able to offer our services to high schools.

We would also like to provide scholarships to athletes and all students who maintain a 3.5 GPA.

We would like to sponsor basketball teams in the future. And offer basketball camps and basketball officiating  camps for our new and current Officials.

Mission Statement

The mission of TMOBA is to provide a positive sport experience for at risk youth.  With proper adult guidance sport is a platform through which children can grow physically, emotionally and socially.  Creating a healthy environment for our children will strengthen our community and help mold our youth into competent adults.
