That is ensuring a smooth running and dynamic game where players are able to showcase their basketball skills. This is the image FIBA is looking for. The two or three appointed referees are the ones who are responsible for this game control.

IOT de Basis

IoT (Individual Officiating Techniques) zijn de belangrijkste aanpassing in de arbitragetechniek sinds 15 jaar. In die periode is er een duidelijke focus geweest op het ontwikkelen van 3po, en dat leidde er toe dat de kwaliteit van de beslissingen die we allemaal namen, laten we het netjes zeggen: aan erosie onderhevig was. De manier om individuele acties te beoordelen is een van de belangrijkste vaardigheden voor scheidsrechters, in 2po én in 3po. Daarom weer een stukje uitleg. Lees “IOT de Basis” verder

skills that referees need to possess in order to process and facilitate the correct decision. Lees “IOT Fundamentals!” verder

IoT nader uitgelegd

Onze aanname dat het begrip Individual Officiating Techniques (IoT) al goed bekend was bij iedereen bleek een wat te optimistische.

We assume most of you have heard about Individual Officiating Techniques by now, but perhaps some have missed the official explanation by their comittee.

Applying these techniques will most certainly help you improve your game, so why not give it a try as long as we’re in preseason. You might like what you see 😉 . Lees “IoT Manual” verder
