Some time ago we asked on our instagram account if you would like a quiz. The responses were clear. So we went to look for a quiz. At first we reached out to our friends at refsupplies.eu for prizes. “Quizzz” verder lezen
We are not here to promote an array of technical fouls every game, but upon checking this video, I think we should look in the mirror and see for ourselves: What should be accepted and what should not?? Do you talk about situations like this in your pregame??? “What should be accepted and what not?” verder lezen
To be or not to be was the question they said, and let’s be honest: the guy was right. This one is from NBA recently but too cool to not use for discussions. What smart remarks are to be made about this situation?? “Count it!! Or not?” verder lezen
We are very curious. People seem not to agree on this one. What is your call? “Travel or not? FIBA rules!” verder lezen
Just check this tape. It’s an awesome job by the lead referee. But would you have come up with the same call?? “Great Call!” verder lezen
In a crew of referees you are never alone. Make sure you are on the same page by creating a solid pregame talk. Make sure you know how to act in situations. The following clip shows a nice example of teamwork. Let’s check it and contemplate: Would we have called the same as the crew in the clip?? Would we have contacted our partner to upgrade the foul? “Teamwork!” verder lezen
You need to go where you got to go to see what you got to see. We should print it on t-shirts (hmm, not such a bad idea). And don’t only follow the ball please! You might miss some things! Let us know what your call would have been! “What’s your decision??” verder lezen
Since a couple of years we’re dealing with the no charge semi circle as the official wording is in the official rules. Took a while for me to build it into my system I have to confess (and I know some people think I still haven’t mastered it yet 🙂 )
Peter Smith uploaded a great video with good and decent explanation. Mind you: the rules have already changed a bit: a defender should have at least one foot in or on the area to be in the required spot! “No charge zone… explained !” verder lezen
I’m sure that everybody studied the new traveling rules over last summers, and let’s be honest: we know better than coaches and players who are complaining. Let me ask that one again: Do we really?
Peter McDonald made a great video about the new traveling rules. It’s a nice refresh for all us refs and even for players and coaches. Great work Peter! “Traveling – Let’s get it right!” verder lezen
We’ve been away from officiating for a while due to private circumstances, but were back on court last week and had a great comeback game so now it’s time to work on the site again too!
Charge/block will never stop being a spectacular topic where players and refs will have different opinions. So make sure you know the rules! “Charge block refresh” verder lezen
