Covering and protecting the shooter

Referees should have full coverage on obvious situations in their primary. A shot is an obvious play – always! The correct way to referee a shooting situation is to use a 1-2-3 technique for shooting situations. When used properly this technique provides the details for possible foul or fake call. The action need to have contact to be illegal.

Checklist:
a. Referee defense all the time.
b. Check the play in following order: 1. hands 2. body 3. feet (landing).
c. Stay with the play until shooter has returned to the floor.
d. Only then turn your attention to ball & rebounds
