Unhappy Understanding Types of fouls

Hey there everyone:

First off I want to thank every one here. This is my first year of officiating BB. However I have worked FB for 15 years and have used this discussion board often. I am sure that the expertise here in the BB room is just as good as what I have found in the FB room.

That being said, I am having a difficult time remembering the catagories of fouls. Does anyone have a mental checklist or can point me to a reference for remembering how the catagories overlap.

ie: all common, intentional, flagarant folus are personal, but not all team fouls are personal fouls, but all personal fouls are team fouls.

My head is swimming, any help would be appreciated.

NFHS Rules:

All live-ball contact fouls are personal fouls of some type.
All dead-ball contact fouls are technical fouls of some type.
All non-contact fouls are technical fouls.
Player-control fouls and team-control fouls are always personal fouls.

Personal and technical fouls may both also be either intentional or flagrant.
The non-fouling team always gets the ball with intentional or flagrant fouls.
The person committing a flagrant foul is always ejected from the game.

All technical fouls called on players, bench members or assistant coaches are direct technical fouls.
Technical fouls administered to a head coach are direct if given only to the head coach, or indirect if given to someone on his bench or anyone on his team during an intermission.
Team technical fouls do not get charged to the head coach as an indirect technical foul.

Not true.

All fouls are either Personal or Technical. They can't be both; they can't be neither.

Within each type, they might be further qualified: common, intentional, flagrant, double, ....

Some types apply only to one (common, PC, TC); some types apply to both.
