1Officiating Guidelines SeasonOfficiating GuidelinesAndTips for A Better Game
2Know The Proper Mechanics Know the Rules&Know The Proper Mechanics“While knowing the rules and passing a test does not make you agood official, you CAN’T BE a good official without knowing the rulesand knowing how to apply them! Knowing the rules and how to apply themshould be automatic and instinctive, because while judgment calls are notalways definitive, proper knowledge and application of the rules is, andcan determine the outcome of a game at any level.”“If you and your partners are all on the same page & using the proper mechanics, you can focus on the players, the game and your primary coverage area, and not trying to figure out what the heck your partner is doing now. Your mechanics and rotations should be fluid and enhance the officiating quality of your game.”
3PRE GAME DISCUSSION TOPICS Pre Game Duties (Captains, Coaches, U1 & U2)New Rules/ Mechanics: Use High School MechanicsGirls: check pre-wrap, head band & wristband colors / bobby pins, etcCourt Coverage (C 60/40), Front & Back Court, Press CoverageJump Ball Coverage & Responsibilities & RotationsTYP: Take care of Your Primary /Trust Your Partner/Tell Your PartnerTrack Your Partners (use peripheral vision to recognize rotations)Call the obvious. Talk the players out of trouble when possibleAvoid using the term “on the floor”/ it’s either spot or shootingDiscuss rules questions, odd situations, plays, callsVisual & Verbal Communication: Play, dead ball, time outs, subs, etc.(L & C on shooter or spot: verbalize who & how many or where)Trail: Mirror Chop & use to signal when ready: Lead Look at TrailRotations: Visually scan partners, look wide & recognize situationsOut of Bounds Call Responsibility/ Discuss dead cornersBringing in subs: discuss who / when / avoid overuse of whistleRotations: Difference if in Frontcourt/ Backcourt / Discuss /When Lead becoming Trail on transition, don’t come inbounds until ball is inbounds & always be a couple of steps behind the ball / Never be more than 1 court section away from ball when transitioning up courtFouls: Patient whistle & discuss style of play
4Double Whistles: minimize double whistles and NO DOUBLE SIGNALS Fouls: Take care of:Your Mechanics FirstYour Partner Mechanics next (show spot or # of shots)Table MechanicsConfirm number of shots on shooting foul by all three partners mirroring # of shots (Trail who reports foul initiates signal: scoreboard could be wrong)Fifth Foul Procedure: Make sure Lead and C are aware of 5th foul. Discuss patience on administration & wait for trail to signalDouble Whistles: minimize double whistles and NO DOUBLE SIGNALSespecially on block / charge calls: defer signal to primary officialWarnings & Techs: Communicate with PartnersThree Point shot: Shooters & rebounders: Only 1 ref signals attemptThree point shot: verbal & visual if 2 pt. avoids troubleBasket interference, goal tending: Who’s got it ?Last second shot: Communicate / Be aware of clock & possible time out requests. Remember, the OHSAA mechanic: “Opposite Table Official (OTO) is the only official who can count or can wave off the shot. However, if the shot is in your primary & you’re sure it’s not good, immediately go and have a conversation with the O.T.O. official & let him/her know what you have. The O.T.O. Official shall make the final determination and signal whether the shot shall count or not.

16WHISTLE YOUR FOUL OR VIOLATION WITH A SINGLE SHARP WHISTLE: NO MULTIPLE TWEETS DO NOT WHISTLE TEAMS BACK FROM A TIME OUT; WALK TOWARDS THEIR BENCH AND VERBALLY BECKON THEM AT FIRST HORNMAKE EYE CONTACT WITH AT LEAST ONE OF YOUR PARTNERS BEFORE INBOUNDING A BALL: MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS READYAFTER A TIME OUT, COUNT THE PLAYERS ON EACH TEAM & MAKE SURE YOU DON’T HAVE 6 ON THE FLOOR/ SIGNAL TO THE ADMINISTERING OFFICIAL THAT YOU’RE READY TO GOIF YOU ARE REPORTING A TIME OUT, REPORT IT & GO BACK TO YOUR PREVIOUS POSITIONIF YOU HAVE A DOUBLE WHISTLE, HOLD YOUR FIST OR HAND TO STOP CLOCK, AND QUICKLY DECIDE WHO IS TAKING THE CALL AND THEN GIVE PROPER PRELIMINARY SIGNAL (BLOCK, CHARGE, TRAVEL, FOUL, ETC.) NO DOUBLE SIGNALS!T.Y.P. : Trust Your Partners/ Take care of Your Primary / Tell Your Partners (give them the spot out of bounds or let them know if you have a shooting foul so they know what to do & where to go) / Track Your Partners (quickly visually pan the floor with your peripheral vision to recognize rotations, matchups, etc.. without losing sight of your matchups or area)COMMUNICATE BOTH VERBALLY & NON VERBALLYIF YOUR PARTNER ASKS YOU FOR HELP ON AN OUT OF BOUNDS PLAY, WHISTLE IT & SELL IT !IF YOU SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN YOUR PARTNER ON AN OUT OF BOUNDS CALL & YOU ARE 100% SURE, GO TO THE CALLING PARTNER & LET HIM/HER KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE. IT’S THEIR DECISION WHETHER TO CHANGE THE CALL OR NOT & THEY WILL MAKE THE CALL.
17AVOID OVER USE OF WHISTLE. USE WHEN: INBOUNDING THE BALL ONLY AFTER A TIMEOUT OR LONG DELAYDON’T WHISTLE IN SUBS. LET THE TABLE SOUND HORN TO BRING IN SUBSVISUALLY COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTNERS AND MAKE THEM AWARE OF PENDING SUBSLOOK FOR POTENTIAL TIMEOUT SITUATIONS AND COMMUNICATE WITH PARTNERSIF YOU ARE ADMINISTERING THE THROW IN AFTER A TIME OUT, STAND ON SPOT WITH THE BALL IN HAND. IF YOU NEED TO TALK WITH YOUR PARTNERS, HAVE THEM COME TO YOU AT THE SPOT. THE REASON: WHAT’S THE FIRST QUESTION A COACH ASKS AFTER CALLING A TIMEOUT & THEY’RE IN THE HUDDLE: “WHERE’S THE BALL AT?”. THEY WILL CALL A PLAY BASED UPON THE THROW IN SPOTBE AWARE OF TIME ON THE CLOCK WHEN A TIMEOUT IS CALLED. IF YOU NEED TO PUT TIME BACK ON, DO IT. GET IT RIGHT!IF YOUR PARTNER SIGNALS AN INTENTIONAL FOUL, THE NEXT CLOSEST OFFICIAL (if you have the same call) SHOULD MIRROR THE INTENTIONAL SIGNAL & CLOSE DOWN TOWARDS THE PLAYHELP YOUR PARTNERS WITH SHOOTERS AND PLAYER NUMBERSCOMMUNICATE WHEN YOU GET TO 6 TEAM FOULS SO THAT YOU KNOW THE NEXT FOUL CALLED ON THAT TEAM WILL RESULT IN THE OTHER TEAM SHOOTING 1 & 1.DO THE SAME WHEN YOU GET TO 9 TEAM FOULS, THEY WILL BE SHOOTING 2 SHOTS

29Communicate on free throw attempts & avoid mistakes: Since Trail has reported foul & is by table, wait for Trail to signal ready to go by relaying the # of shots to the C & then C relay to Lead. This way we avoid wrong # of shots/ L handing ball to shooter when it’s a 5th foul/ wrong # of fouls on scoreboard & it’s really 2 shots and not 1 and 1 , etc.Scorer’s TableTeam A BenchTeam B BenchFifth Foul Procedure: Make sure Lead and C are aware of 5th foul.
