The Ohio High School Athletic Association will be sponsoring a basketball officials training clinic again this summer. The clinic is designed for class #3, class #2, and class #1 basketball officials who are interested in improving their basketball officiating skills. Basketball officials from all the districts of Ohio need to be officiating in similar styles, looking for the same things, and using the same mechanics.
The regular season is almost complete and the first OHSAA Tournament games start Thursday, February 18. Attached is the first bulletin you will receive emphasizing items that the crew should be covering in the pre game. The first is officiating in the lead position.
Some officials believe (and cover in their pre-game meetings) – “any official (in any position) can ‘wave off a last second shot’ (meaning ‘not good’), but only the ‘opposite the table official’ can count it.
