Whats your steps when calling a foul?

Do you call the foul, give the signal, then report?

Call the foul, give the signal and say the player number, then report?

Just call the foul and then report?

Or as I've seen actually Saturday, call the foul (half raised arm), walk around the 3 point line say the number and return to the proper spot (without stopping and giving # or signal to table).

Curious on everyones different steps when calling a foul!

Thanks

have one worse than that. We have a couple guys - varsity level - that when in lead position will signal foul - then tell their partner what they've called and the partner in trail position reports to the table. No switch. They will literally call an entire half without switching.

We've tried talking to them but - they've been doing it this way for years and "it works" for them.

haha whats sad is thats at the Varsity level. If the NFHS wanted officials to relay the message to their partners it would be in the mechanics of a 3 man crew. BUT they clearly want us to switch and it makes us look alive and happy to be there.

I try to go as close to the procedure as possible. Usually when it is a shooting foul I have noticed I might not give the preliminary signal as much as I should, but I still give the signals for 2 shots.

Peace

I had a game with one of those guys once. At his whistle I froze watching. I didn't really look at him closely - just enough to know his fist was up and he was trying to communicate for me to report the foul. When I saw everything was calm I moved to endline and stood next to him. He asked if I reported the foul - I said "what foul?" I thought he was going to kill me. It was the longest game of my life.

I've had a few varsity level partners that want to do that during middle school games.

Here is how I was trained and how I'm currently doing it.

1) Whistle and fist up
2) With fist up, announce color and number. "White 23"
3) Lower fist and give preliminary signal. At the same time, verbalize the foul. "Hold"
4) Indicate direction or number of shots. "Red" or "2 shots"
5) If shooting, indicate number of the shooter. "Red 15 is shooter."
6) If throw in, indicate throw-in spot.

Then go report color, number, foul, result.

"White 23, hold. Endline spot."

"White 23, hack. 2 shots."

Do you say the whole number? Twenty-Three.
Or each digit? Two, three.
Personally, I state the whole number!

Whole number. We were explicitly instructed NOT to say each digit separately.

We've been told the opposite - each digit seperately with hand signal.
