Question

I know that the style todays kids are going with is to wear their shorts around their ankles, but i had a game a few weeks ago where a kid came on to the court with his shorts literally around his knees. I told him that in order to play, he must wear his shorts at his waist (i know there's a rule pertaining to this but i can't think of it offhand). I do not believe this was unreasonable, but appearantly he did, and so did his parents. He ended up sitting on the bench for a quarter until he realized that he should pull up his pants, so he could play. After watching a few other officials doing a game where a kid was wearing his shorts extremely low, i'm just wondering if i did the right thing.

What would you have done in this situation???

I would have told him that he couldn't play unless he pulled his shorts up.

Low shorts and untucked shirts.

Cover it in the PreGame
Warn it then call it.

You tell them to pull up the shorts. If they don't comply, you tell them to hit the bench.

Check out R3-4-15 and casebook play 3.4.15.

Shorts down enjoy the bench.
Shorts up join in the game.

A simple word can usually solve the problem. Never had this as an issue.

gotta love the humor in this place no matter how dry or obscure it is....warning the wearer about where shorts are to be "warn".....
