06/05/14 – NFHS Basketball Rule Changes for 2014-2015

Basketball Blog Updates

Lane Players Can Release When Free Throw is Attempted in High School Basketball

Players in marked lane spaces will be able to move into the lane when the ball is released by the free-throw shooter beginning with the 2014-15 high school basketball season. Previously, players could not release until the ball touched the ring or backboard or until the free throw ended.

This change in Rule 9-1-4 was one of four major rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Basketball Rules Committee at its April 14-16 meeting in Indianapolis. All recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

The committee noted that the current rule of players in marked lane spaces not releasing until the ball touches the ring or backboard creates two obstacles for officials: 1) attempting to […]

Officials and Assigners: The KHSAA received this email from Arbiter.  We wanted to make sure that you are aware of the situation.

EMAIL:

We are currently experience higher rates of email delivery failure for assigners using Yahoo or AOL email addresses due to recent policy changes that these two providers have implemented.  The policy they have adopted is called DMARC Rejection.  Basically, they are no longer letting non-Yahoo or non-AOL servers, send in their clients’ behalves.  Unfortunately, this includes our servers and any other website that was sending in behalf of AOL and Yahoo clients.  Yahoo began this policy on April 11thand AOL on April 22nd.  It is our belief that many others may follow suit. Here are a couple of articles on the policy changes:

03/28/14 – Football 8th Region Official Association Interest

Football Blog Updates

TO ALL KHSAA FOOTBALL OFFICIALS –

The 8th Region policy board and a group of regional officials are in the early stages of the possible formation of an 8th Region Football Officials Association, and have communicate such interest to the KHSAA. Interested officials should email your contact information (name, phone, email address) to eighthregion@gmail.com. Submitting this information is not a commitment to join that association nor is it a decision to leave another association, but will gauge interest in creating this association before investing resources. Gathering numbers and contact information of interested officials will give us a better understanding of the viability of such an association.

If formed, the 8th Region Football Officials Association could possibly provide officials for the 8th Region schools listed below that have a football program, at one or more levels. As with all other associations, there would be no mandate for a school in the region to use a […]
