NFHS Rules Interpreters versus IAABO Rules Interpreters
 
I am looking to identify NFHS rules interpreters for basketball officials associations not linked with IAABO. If anyone is an interpreter, could you send me an email at [email protected] as I am interested in learning more about the training methods being used in other parts of the country.

Thanks.

Why may I ask? IAABO Board Interpreters are no different from the interpreter of a local association in any other state. There are no "IAABO" interpretations anymore than there are "local association" interpretations.

P.S. Is EMBOA a girls' only basketball officiating board?

Dan,

You can take a look at this national list of basketball organizations that includes identification of interpreters and some email addresses. Please share any additions with me so that I can update the list. Also, do share the results of your survey of interpreters.

I am the rules interpreter for a Philadelphia PIAA chapter. Most Pennsylvania chapters, including mine, are not IAABO affiliated. Here are 2 positives and one negative regarding PIAA rules related matters.

Positive 1:

Each year, the PIAA provides a detailed guide for suggested rules presentations at chapter meetings.

Positive 2;

During the annual PIAA officials convention, the PIAA runs a full 2-day train the trainer course which focuses on effective rules presentations. Officials from multiple sports attend providing a learning experience in itself.

Negative 1: The PIAA does not require an official to participate in a rules course before taking the NFHS exam. The immediate downside is a high failure rate (around 50%). The longer term downside is that many officials miss an initial opportunity to become well grounded in the rules.

Score one for IAABO. I am also an IAABO member and have found their training for cadets (new officials) to be consistently effective and their camps for newer officials to be outstanding and true to the letter and spirit of NFHS rules.

Hi Mark, page 78 of IAABO mechanics manual is different from NFHS manual...IAABO writes their own.

EMBOA is not a girls only board, we don't have differences in Mass. anymore.

I'm just looking for other training ideas.....how other non-IAABO states do it because I'm surrounded by mostly IAABO folks in Massachusetts. Not that I'm against their ideas, just looking for others as theirs are not the only ones and may not always be the best.

Thanks for the info. I am also 20+ years with IAABO. Just looking to see what other states do. I hear Texas is very advanced with some training ideas....I'm assuming other states have great ideas too.

Dan, welcome as a participant to the forum. There is a tremendous amount of basketball officiating knowledge here as well as enough strong personalities to keep it interesting. Expect to take some lumps - I'm still taking mine. But if you stick around and get to know us it will be well worth it.

Thanks Wanja, you actually have listed my college clinic on the Philly Ref site for a while, it is The Referee School, Officiating Camp for Officials of Women's Basketball, 3-person Women's CCA instruction, 2-person NF instruction also available.

I often read the forums, haven't posted in a long time but do enjoy being on as much as time allows.

Dan
