Announcer Responsibilities
 The announcer shall be prohibited
from making an announcement:
• while the clock is running and
• while the clock is stopped and
the ball is live…such as during a
free throw, a throw in, etc.
 Doing so could potentially affect
communication between coaches
and players or be disconcerting.
Announcer Responsibilities
 The announcer shall be prohibited from
interrupting the game through the use of
the microphone unless there is an
emergency.
 Announcements or comments shall be
made during those times when there is
a stoppage of the clock and the ball is
not live, such as time outs, between
quarters, pre-game, half time and post
game.
Announcer Responsibilities
 The announcer is allowed to announce
basic information that does not potentially
affect the play in general, the players, the
coaches, or the officials. The announcer’s
information is not official information and
could be misinformation shared with all.
 Appropriate training of announcers by
school personnel and proper pre-game
instructions by the referee are necessary.
May be Announced - Examples:
 Player who scored
 Player charged with foul
 Player attempting free throw
 Team granted a time out
 Length of time out: 30 seconds or 60
seconds
 Player entering game
 Team Rosters
Shall not be Announced –
Examples:
 Number of points player scored
 Number of fouls on player
 Number of team fouls
 Number of team time outs or number
remaining
 Time remaining in the quarter/game
 Type of foul or violation
 Emphatic 2 or 3 point goal
Announcer Responsibilities
 The announcer’s role does not include
“cheering the home team on” or
otherwise inciting the crowd. Doing so
is common at other levels of athletic
events. But high school athletics is
different because sports are
educationally based.
 In a very real sense, the public address
announcer at a high school event is a
“Champion of Character”.
Announcer Responsibilities
 He/she can influence the atmosphere of
the contest by what is said and how it is
said.
 The announcer who performs
professionally promotes good
sportsmanship by what he/she says and
how he/she acts upon saying it.
Correctable Error:
Officials may correct an error if a rule is
inadvertently set aside and results in:
• Failure to award a merited free throw.
• Awarding an unmerited free throw.
• Permitting a wrong player to attempt a free
throw.
• Attempting a free throw at the wrong
basket.
• Erroneously counting or cancelling a score.
Correctable Errors
Five errors are recognized in the rules book. Officials are
granted the power within a certain window of time to make
these corrections.

Frontcourt and Backcourt Ball
Status:
 The status of the ball when considering
whether it is in the frontcourt or
backcourt is determined by the location
of the object that the ball last touched
inbounds as long as there is team
control inbounds, be it a player, official
or the playing court.
Frontcourt and Backcourt Status
 The location of a player is determined
by where the player is touching the floor
or, in the case of the airborne player,
where the player was last in contact with
the floor.
Ball Status
 When an airborne player gains possession
of the ball during a throw in or a jump ball,
the player is considered to have no status
as related to frontcourt or backcourt if
he/she (and only that player) returns to the
floor possessing the ball.
 The location where he/she lands will
determine the location of the player and
the ball.
Frontcourt and
Backcourt Status
Until a player gains control of the ball during a throw-in or
jump ball, there is no frontcourt or backcourt status. When
possession is gained, location of the player determines
frontcourt or backcourt status of the ball.
© REFEREE ENTERPISES INC. 2012
Frontcourt and Backcourt Ball
Status:
 The ball is considered to remain in
the backcourt while a player is
dribbling the ball until both feet of
that player and the ball have been
in contact with the frontcourt.
Backcourt
Rule 9-9-1
Clarified example of a backcourt violation.
© REFEREE ENTERPISES INC. 2012
Frontcourt and
Backcourt Status
In (1), the player with her pivot foot (right foot) in the
backcourt can pivot the left foot into the frontcourt and then
to the backcourt in (2) without committing a violation. In (3),
the player uses her front foot or left foot as her pivot foot and
pivots into the frontcourt. However, when she now touches
the backcourt in (4), it is a violation.
© REFEREE ENTERPISES INC. 2012
Frontcourt and Backcourt Ball
Status:
 It is recommended to review case
plays 4-4-1 and 9-9-1, Situations AE, in the Case Book.
 These cases present situations that
assist in explaining the status of the
ball and player when considering
backcourt violations.
Team Control Status During Throw in;
Team Control Status Inbounds
 Since a 2011-12 rule change, team control
exists during a throw in when the thrower
in has the ball at her/his disposal.
 The change was made ONLY to eliminate
the penalty of administering free throw(s)
when a teammate of the thrower in
commits a common foul during the throw in
Team Conrol Status Inbounds
 The change made the penalty
consistent with the penalty for other
team control fouls.
 The penalty now is the awarding of a
throw in to the opposing team at the
spot out-of-bounds nearest to where the
foul occurred.
Team Control Status During Throw in;
Team Control Status Inbounds
NOTE:
 Team control during a throw in is not intended
to be equated to player control status
inbounds which creates team control status
inbounds.
 During the throw in, 10-seconds, 3-seconds,
frontcourt status, backcourt status, closely
guarded, etc. are not factors as there has yet
to be player control/team control status
obtained inbounds.
Team Control
on Throw-In
A team is in control of the ball when the ball is at the
disposal of the player for the throw-in. The penalty for a
common foul committed by the throw-in team is a teamcontrol foul and does not warrant free-throw shots.
