Nadine Crowley of Ottawa is the 2014 Ted Earley Award winner.

The award was announced at the CABO AGM and presented at the Ontario officials meeting in September. Nadine was providing a clinic in Calgary but sent this video expressing her thanks and appreciation.


The Ted Earley Award is named for CABO’s first president, a member of the Canada Basketball Hall of Fame. Only one nominee can be selected for the Award, CABO’s highest honour. The selected nominee must meet the following criteria:

  • a superior floor official;
  • a significant number of years of service as an active official with national and international exposure;
  • varied forms of service to the basketball community, both provincially and nationally;
  • service in administrative and leadership roles, both provincially and nationally;
  • service in both interpretive and educational capacities.

Nadine’s record of gold medal assignments at every level is truly astounding and a testament to her dedication to officiating. Nadine began officiating in 1987 and obtained her FIBA card in 1999. That led to assignments on four continents to add to her numerous provincial and national championships. She continues to contribute to basketball officiating in Canada as a CABO national assignor/evaluator, and clinician.

CABO is proud to be represented by Nadine Crowley and to honour her contributions and achievements with this year’s Ted Earley Award.
