UNIFORMS MUST BE PROPERLY WORN
Officials are observing more players "rolling the waistband" of their uniform shorts, which exposes multiple manufacturer logos/references/trademarks. There are several issues with this. Rule 3-5-5 indicates "apparel shall not be modified from the original manufactured state and shall be worn in the manner the manufacturer intended it to be worn." The rolling of the waistband is not as the shorts were intended to be worn. In addition, some of the waistbands show multiple logos. Only one visible logo is permitted on the shorts/pans/skirt. Coaches need to address this with their players. Officials should make players correct the uniforms before participation. If not corrected, the player will need to leave the contest.

MID-SEASON
After observing several tournament games this week a couple reminders. Coaches must teach players to play defense with their feet not their hands. Officials and coaches are reminded of NFHS rule 10-12 - the absolutes. The following acts constitute a foul when committed against a ball handler/dribbler: 1) Placing two hands on a player; 2) Placing an extended arm bar on the player; 3) Placing and keeping a hand on the dribbler; 4) Contacting the player more than once with the same hand or alternating hands. These fouls could occur anywhere on the court. The other area of concern is displacement in the post. Officials must know who established position first, and then determine who is displacing who. Don’t penalize the defense if they have established a legal guarding position. Officials must move to have the best angle to see through plays and immediately and consistently call illegal contact. Previous newsletters and rule meetings have addressed these issues. Mid-season is a good time to get back in the rule book and make sure we are enforcing and interpreting rules correctly Call the fouls – players will adjust.

UNIFORM ISSUES - KNEE PADS and SLEEVES
We should not have to address on a weekly basis the uniform rules as coaches are the ones responsible for making sure players are legally equipped. Anything other than a brace (defined as anything that contains hinges and/or straps or an opening over the knee cap) is considered a sleeve or tights. This includes knee pads – they must be the same color for all players. Color choices for sleeves, tights, knee pads, etc. is black, white, beige or the predominant color of the uniform. ALL players must have the same color. <<< continue >>>
