The cool thing about calling a violation is that in 9 out of 10 cases it points the attention of player and coaches to themselves instead of to you as a referee. The reversed is the case when you’re calling personal fouls.
With that in mind we found a clip for you guys. Do you have a travel in this case? And if so: Why? If not? Why not?

One can never check too many clips, so here’s another one. Do you have an offensive or a defensive foul? And as always: Why do you pick your answer? Lees verder “What do you have? -23-“
The great thing about 3po is , besides the obvious 2 friends on your court with you is better than one friend on your court, that more eyes will see more. As a refereeteam you’ll notice that in 3po you’ll have more time to decide what’s an infraction on the rules and what is not. Not to mention the better angles. A big if in all this is: all those adventages are only applicable IF you don’t all watch the same spot on the court. That being said: Do you have a blocking foul, a offensive foul , a flop or a no call in this case?

Even with a serious heatwave going on we can never get enough of the eternal discussion: charge/block. The clip from NL Basketball shows a nice situation, where one could even go for a no call (as some did).
So from your opinion, what are you having here and why??? Please take your time to state the why. That way we can all learn from eachother.

Wow almost 1000 hits yesterday. We get it, you missed us ;-). Offseason for the most of us is as good as any time to get better in recognizing plays. Here’s another nice clip from Refstyle. Do you call a foul or not? And please tell us why!

We need as referees to be aware of the impact of our whistle. In order to make the right decision we need to be in the right spot to see what we need to see. And upon witnessing the play unfold we need to realise what’s happening before our eyes and decide: Call it or not?
That’s why we put a heavy emphasis on watching clips such as the one below. Do you call anything and if so : Why??
