#153 The Wonderful Women of Officiating | Chiene’ Joy Jones | Queens, NYC | Episode 1

The Crown Refs Podcast introduces our new series “The Wonderful of Officiating” dedicated to highlighting the amazing accomplishments of the females of our officiating community and some of the great work they're doing both on and off the court.⁣

Episode 1 features Chiene’ Joy Jones, a charismatic 3-year official from Queens, NY. Chiene’ is a basketball coach who founded Grow Our Game, a nonprofit organization empowering the next generation of young women through the game of basketball. ⁣

With over 15 years of coaching experience, she continues to serve as a committed and dedicated professional through community organizations in New York City, primarily facilitating and leading efforts to break generational poverty by advocating for our youth in urban communities. ⁣

She is a mentor to all of her players, past, and present, and continues to advocate for girls' participation in sports. Coach Jones was named 2020 New York Knicks/Jr. Knicks Coach of the Year and most recently featured in Nike’s You Can’t Stop Our Voice! Campaign for her profound impact in the NYC basketball community.⁣

In this episode, we sit down with Chiene’ to learn about how she developed her passion and love for the game and why she chose to play Divison 3 over D1. We also discuss some of the most common challenges that women face in sports and what male officials can do to drive the visibility of female officials. ⁣
