The monitorization of the acceleration profile allows determining the high intensity actions that determine the success of competition. The aim of the study is to analyze the acceleration profile of basketball referees through Ultra Wide-Band technology. The sample was composed of nine international referees, who refereeing fifteen official games during U’16 international championship. The independent variable was defined by the different periods of the game. The dependent external load variables were the intensity, duration, maximum peak and start speed of accelerations and decelerations. And the dependent situational variables were game score and ball possessions. The WIMU PROTM inertial devices have been used for the analysis of variables. The repeated measures Anova test was performed to know the differences between periods. The results show that there are significant differences between the first and the fourth period in the duration of accelerations and decelerations and in the start speed of decelerations. Acceleration basketball referees profile can meet the demands of the game and properly analyze the predictors of performance.
