2021 NFHS Questionnaire Text ...

Checkup on present 2020-21 Rules – Were the following rule changes satisfactory?
1. Adding a signal to end the player replacement interval.
2. Reorganizing and clarifying the process to use when a coach or school personnel is not available to sit on the bench.
3. Clarifying that the warning to a coach may be used, but it is not mandatory.

Have you observed any of the following this year?
1. Increasing number of hand-checking fouls called.
2. More illegal screens being set but not called on the perimeter.
3. Officials understanding legal guarding position when adjudicating block/charge calls.
4. Officials more consistently using the proper NFHS mechanics.
5. Increasing number of games with one team possessing the ball for longer than 30 seconds before attempting a shot.
6. Increasing number of three-point shots attempted.

About the rules for 2022:
1. Beginning with a team’s seventh foul, awarding, in each quarter, a bonus free throw if the first free throw is successful. Then with the team’s eighth foul in each quarter, and extending into any subsequent overtime period, awarding two free throws regardless of the success of the first attempt. At the end of each quarter, with the exception of any subsequent overtime period, zeroing out the team foul total.
2. During a quarter, awarding no free throws for the first four common fouls and then, starting with the fifth foul in each quarter, awarding two free throws for each common foul. Reset fouls to zero at the end of each quarter.
3. Resetting team fouls to zero at the end of each quarter, eliminating one-and-one situations and awarding two free throws for the sixth and all subsequent team fouls in a quarter.
4. Awarding bonus free throws beginning with a team’s sixth foul each quarter (unless the foul is a player-control or team-control foul).
5. Resetting a team’s foul count to zero at the end of each quarter [except following the fourth quarter if overtime is necessary; in such case a team’s foul count at the end of regulation play will carry over into overtime(s)].
6. Implementing the “No Jump Ball” rule to start the game, with some form of alternating-possession protocol.
7. Eliminating the jump ball and beginning the game with the visiting team receiving the ball and using alternating possession the rest of the contest.
8. Eliminating the jump ball and beginning the game with a coin flip and using alternating possession the rest of the contest.
9. Eliminating the jump ball to start each overtime and continuing to use the alternating-possession arrow since overtimes are a “continuation” of the fourth quarter.
10. Allowing use of a 30-second shot clock by state association adoption.
11. The NFHS approving a 30-second shot clock by state association adoption.
12. The NFHS adopting a 30-second shot clock.
13. Implementing a 35-second shot clock.
14. Changing the rule to disallow coaches to call a time-out during a live ball.
15. Permitting coaches to call a time-out only during dead-ball periods.
16. Permitting only players on the court to request and be granted a time-out during a live ball.
17. Requiring the home team to wear a contrasting dark color (the darker of the school colors or black).
18. Making cloth-tied headbands legal, as long as the extensions are tucked in.
19. Eliminating the “loss of the coaching box” for any technical fouls (direct or indirect) charged to the head coach.
