      Tristan C well that one got snowed out and then I missed my second one but my third group of games went fine. I was with some friends who had done it before so that took some weight off of my shoulders.

    Check out Discbands for basketball officials. Huge help for keeping track of held ball possession. Especially for training programs, youth, amateur, rec leagues, etc.

    Looks like the official is “hunting” for a foul. The officials should not be stepping around and moving looking as though they are looking for a foul. Relax and watch with your eyes.

    I thought being a ref was easy, you just blow the whistle when a violation or foul. Why did they have to make it with so much memorizing??

    I['m not sure where they're getting some of this information but NFHS does not have a substitution signal, and nor do you bounce the ball the the player underneath the net. There were a few others that I saw that were wrong and not what I was taught from my chapter of officials who have a very good reputation for mechanics and professionalism. The trail is table side on foul shots according to NFHS rules. The scorer does not hit the horn to let you know a time out is called NEVER. NFHS DOES NOT HAVE A TIME OUT SIGNAL

      I'm not very sure but im pretty sure crew chief is the more experienced ref. Or atleast in my country the most experienced tosses the ball

    i’m 15, and pretty good at basketball, but i don’t have a clue about the rules and reffing shit. I’m actually so pissed rn cuz my school is so poor that they asked me to ref, and the other ref is a forget old man who can’t even run🤦‍♂️ this is bs
