     2009-10
Points of Emphasis
               Traveling
• Traveling rule has not changed.
• Specific areas of concern:
  – Spin move
  – Step-through move, legal if player
    does not drag or change pivot foot
  – Jump stop
  – Perimeter shooters taking extra ‗hop‘
  – Lifting the pivot foot before starting
    the dribble
               Traveling
• Guidelines for teaching &
  officiating:
  – Find the pivot foot.
  – At start of dribble, ball must be
    released before the pivot is lifted.
  – After dribble has ended, the pivot
    may be lifted, but the ball must be
    released on a pass or try before it
    returns to the floor.
         Closely Guarded
• Closely-guarded rule is in place
  to create better balance
  between the offense and
  defense.
• The offense gains a tremendous
  advantage if the rule is not
  enforced properly and
  consistently.
         Closely Guarded
• The rule basics:
  –Player is in control in his/her
   team‘s frontcourt.
  –Guarded by an opponent who is
   within 6 feet.
  –Defensive player must obtain a
   legal guarding position.
         Closely Guarded
• The rule basics:
  –Player may legally…
    • HOLD for 4 seconds
    • DRIBBLE for 4 seconds
    • HOLD for 4 seconds
          Closely Guarded
• A closely-guarded count continues if
  defenders switch, provided the 6-
  foot distance and legal guarding
  position is maintained.
• Officials use a visible count when
  the 6-foot distance is established
  and switch counting arms when
  going from one counting situation to
  another.
           Three-Seconds
• The restricted area includes the
  lane and all lines defining it.
• Rule is in effect when a team is
  in control in its frontcourt.
• Team control exists:
  –Player is holding/dribbling the ball.
  –Passing among teammates.
  –Interrupted dribble.
             Three-Seconds
• Team control CONTINUES until:
   – Ball is in flight during a try for goal,
     an opponent secures the ball or the
     ball becomes dead.
• Team control DOESN‘T exist so NO
  three second count exists:
   – The tapping of a rebound.
   – A loose ball following a try.
   – During a throw-in.
          Three-Seconds
• An allowance is made and the count
  stopped when a player in the
  restricted area has the ball and
  dribbles/moves to try for a goal. If
  the player has been in the lane for
  more than three seconds and
  passes the ball to a teammate a
  three second lane violation should
  be called.
           Three-Seconds
• Rough post play is reduced when
  the three-second rule is properly
  enforced, defenders cannot and
  should not be expected to
  defend/deny in the post indefinitely.
• When offensive post players are
  permitted to ―camp out‖ –
  defenders get more physical in an
  attempt to move them out.
           Block/Charge
• Knowing and understanding the
  rules regarding legal guarding
  position are critical in coaching
  and officiating this play.
          Block/Charge
• The two main components of
  legal guarding are:
 – Obtaining a legal guarding position
 – Maintaining a legal guarding position
• The following rules pertaining
  to guarding and can be found in
  Rule 4-23.
          Block/Charge
• To obtain an initial legal
 guarding position:
  – The guard must have both feet
    touching the court.
  – The front of the guard‘s torso must
    be facing the opponent.
           Block/Charge
• To maintain a legal guarding
  position:
  – One or both feet on the court, with
    inbounds status.
  – Doesn‘t have to continue facing.
  – May move laterally or obliquely, but not
    toward the opponent when contact
    occurs.
  – May raise hands or jump in vertical
    plane; may turn/duck to absorb
    imminent contact.
            Block/Charge
• Guarding an opponent WITH THE
  BALL or STATIONARY without the
  ball:
  – Time and distance not required to
    obtain a legal guarding position.
  – If airborne, guard must have obtained
    legal position before the opponent left
    the floor.
          Free-Throw
         Administration
• Lane-space requirements:

 –Limit of four defensive and two
  offensive players along lanes.
     Free-Throw Administration
• Fouls must be called when they
  occur during free throws – just as
  they would for illegal contact during
  rebounding activity following a try
  for goal.
• Of specific concern:
  – Players locking-up arms under the
    basket and pushing and displacing
    opponents in marked lane spaces.
        Free-Throw Administration
• Disconcertion is also a concern since the
  spaces closest to the shooter are now
  occupied.
• Example: Players putting arms up or
  dropping arms when shooter is about to
  release the free throw shot.
• Players shall not enter, leave or touch
  the court outside the marked lane space.
          Free-Throw Administration
• Appropriate free-throw positioning by the
  officials will assist in proper penalty
  enforcement.
   – Lead is approximately 4 feet from near lane
     line for ALL free throws.
   – Center is halfway between the near lane
     line and the sideline; just above the free-
     throw line extended.
   – Trail is at approximately the 28-foot mark,
     NOT at the division line.

• Team uniformity still required –
  same color for all items and team
  members
• Non-compliant items must be
  removed prior to participation
           Slapping the Backboard
 More players are slapping the backboard during the
  course of playing action
 Officials must determine if the act is:
     Unintentional – part of a legitimate attempt to
      block a try for goal = LEGAL
     Intentional – venting frustration or drawing
      attention to him/herself = TECHNICAL FOUL
 By definition, this backboard contact cannot be basket
  interference
             Officials‘ Mechanics &
                     Signals
 Communication and consistency most important
  elements of officiating
 Officials must be familiar and comfortable with proper
  NFHS mechanics and signals
 Use only approved NFHS mechanics and signals to:
    Effectively cover the court with individual primary
      coverage areas
    Only Effective way to communicate with partners
      and provide immediate information/feedback to
      coaches, players, scorers, timers and fans
             Officials‘ Mechanics &
                     Signals
 Signals are used to communicate – not to draw
  attention to the official
 Use of unauthorized signals can confuse because
  meaning may be unknown
 Signals should be given in a calm, controlled,
  professional manner – NOT ―hit and run‖
 Uniformity in mechanics and signaling is essential to
  promote consistency and communication from one
  game site to the next
      SPORTING BEHAVIOR –
          SPECTATORS
Officials:
 Never directly confront fans.
 Find the game administrator to take care
   of the problem.
 In extreme cases, delay the game until
   the offending fan is removed.
 If a game administrator is not present,
   the head coach serves in this capacity.
