BY the mechanics book, in 2-man you switch every time. It depends on your association. We do not long switch on any back court fouls.

Haven't had to work much 2 person this season (God is good) but we switch on all fouls in 2 person.

By the book... you switch on every foul - including long switches. I'm still a rookie but any time I'm with a partner that works primarily 3-man, they don't want to long switch. Our association decided no long switches in 2-man.

I could have sworn they changed the book on this, but I can't find it. I do know long switches are frowned upon here.

We do it, with some rare spontaneous exceptions.

I believe that a few years ago the NFHS flip-flopped on this, first removing it from 2 person, then restoring it a couple of years later. I always pre-game that we will not do the long switch. And it's not just to eliminate 50 unnecessary extra steps. It's to prevent both officials from remaining in the backcourt while all 10 players are headed to the front court. IMHO that's just not smart.

I've never understood why the Fed has kept long switching in the 2-man mechanics. There's an exception in 3-man, may as well be in 2-man, too.

No long switches accomplishes two things - easier dead-ball officiating (one official gets to keep his eyes on the entire court without worrying about heading to the other end) and provides a more efficient process.

Currently the off-call official can choose to be an excellent dead-ball official by freezing until after the reporting and then heading to the other end, but that obviously comes at the expense of efficiency. Heading immediately to the other end comes at the expense of dead-ball officiating.

Enough rambling. You get my point. If you care at all. I certainly don't after wasting my time writing this. Glad I only work 3-man...

Only In The Land Of Steady Habits ...

CONNECTICUT (IAABO) MECHANICS:
Point to floor for two-point field goal try when shooter has foot touching three point line.
No long switches when foul is called in the backcourt and there is no change of possession or direction.
Team members are not allowed to congregate at midcourt during introductions. Officials will direct players to free throw line area in front of respective benches.
Coaching Box must be marked. If home coach and/or home management refuse to designate coaching box with tape, the home team will not use a coaching box for that game. However, the visiting team will be allowed a coaching box. Notify Board Secretary, or Commissioner the next day.

Yes, according to the NFHS officials manual the officials switch on each and every foul in 2-man. The no-long-switch exception is only for 3-man.

When I work 2-man, I switch every time.

I say do it right. If one is too lazy to hustle and give that effort, then one shouldn't be out there.

You can keep your head on a swivel while moving and do both at the same time.
