NFHS - Whistle before handing ball to thrower?

NFHS - Lead Official - Do you give a whistle before handing the ball to the thrower for an endline throw-in (team throwing in is going to the near basket) when there has not been a delay? Possibly just when it's loud?

From the Officials' Manual - Basic Procedures and Mechanics - Two Officials - Throw-In - 220 - The administering official shall sound the whistle only following a charged time-out, an intermission or an unusual delay.

So I've answered my question by the book, per se, but I'm curious for the forum's take on this, from those that work college and high school, as well as only high school, or if anything has been released by the NFHS since this book was published that I'm unaware of regarding this.

Thank you in advance for the responses.

3 years ago I worked two games with a guy who blew the whistle on every stupid inbounds he had. He looked like an idiot all game long. Do it by the book!

I know the rules, and the official mechanics, but there are times when a whistle is needed. Mostly at the (unanimously agreed as most difficult!!) JH girls level. Sometimes I can get away with just yelling, "Play!" instead of blowing the whistle.

Nothing new has been released. In women's college ball, the lead blows the whistle prior to a front-court baseline throw. In HS games, I only do it after an unusual delay or a time-out. I do forget to do it once in a great while in my women's JC games.

I do not employ NCAA W mechanics in NFHS games.

Does that tell you how I do it?

It tells us how you don't do it.

Hey guys what about before shooting free throws after a timeout? Should you blow the whistle before you put the ball at the disposal of the shooter.

I only hit my whistle after delays, a TO or a quarter break. On free thows after a break I don't hit my whistle at all.

Per 8-1-2 Free throw administration...

Following a timeout or intermission, the resumption of play procedure may be used to prevent delay. The timer will sound the authorized warning horn and final signal. The administrating official will sound the whistle to indicate play will resume. The ball shall be placed at the disposal o the thrower or placed on the floor and the count shall begin....


The word "may" indicates it's optional to me. I would say unless there is an actual delay that would cause you to place the ball on the floor it's probably unnecessary. (Putting the ball on the floor without a whistle and starting a count would probably be a bad thing to do!!!) However if you are really concerned you could always ask your assignor/association/mentor how they want it done.

Agree! Also many officials blow the whistle when acknowledging a substitution. I don't believe that to be neccessary. I agree with the other poster. We blow it often enough.

I blow the whistle some of the time, not all of the time. It really depends on the gym, the crowd size and the type of game that is being played. If there is any delay, I will more likely blow the whistle.

Peace
