Freedom of Movement
basketballicon75x75 FreedomOfMovementSmall
The NFHS Rules Committee has drawn a line in the
sand to bring more freedom of movement to our great
game, and Rule 10-6-12 is the stick that has carved this
dramatic pronouncement and will have defenders
stepping cautiously to it as we begin the 2014-15
season.

As coaches and players learn to make the adjustments
to comply with the new rule, so must officials embrace
this mindset and make the necessary modifications to
their officiating style.

In this issue of “60 Seconds on Officiating” we examine
the critical components of Rule 10-6-12 that will be
penalizing defensive contact which in the past was often
ignored when the offensive opponent was able to play
through it.

Click on the link below to read up on how to be on the
correct side of the Freedom of Movement line that has
been drawn in the proverbial sand.

And don’t forget to join the REF 60 conversation on
Facebook and Twitter too.

Boys' modified basketball rules.
The change:    If a regulation game ends tied, then a four (4)
minute overtime period will be played.  If the game is still tied at
the end of the 4 minute overtime period then the game ends at
that point, tied.  No further play.  Game ends tied.
Great Job to our board
members for your time
