What do you say?

When you have a designated spot throw-in, what do you say to verbally communicate it? ... "spot", "throw-in", "spot throw-in". Or do you verbally communicate it at all. Just curious what the consensus might be.

Well, you would only have this issue in the backcourt going long. I think you can say spot or spot throw-in.

"Spot"

I tell the thrower each and every time. Gets me in the habit of doing so, so I don't forget to tell the thrower "he can run" when he's allowed to.

I assume you mean to the thrower? If so, 99% of the time I point and say "right here". A few times I just point.

That's what I do too. Also, if we're coming out of a timeout I wait until the second horn, and I visibly point to the floor in front them while saying "spot". This helps you if someone watches the tape, I've been told.

It's almost like we were taught the same way APG...

Hmmm I thought every sideline throw-in was designated as well as any f/c throw-in.

I say spot as I point to it.

A number of people around here say "designated," even on sideline throw-ins. I never saw the point of saying it on sidelines, must be force of habit.

I wouldn't assume the player knows he/she can't run the endline on a frontcourt throw-in.

Me neither, but it's the coach's responsibility to teach their players that, not ours. If you want to remind a player, fine. If you don't though, it is never the official's fault if he/she has to call a violation.

Last night, 7th grade boys game. Coming out of a timeout, A1 has a spot throw-in on B's endline. Before I can say anything, he asks if he can "run". I tell him sure, but it would be a violation, but if he really wants to, go ahead.

He gets that deer in headlights look, then smiles and says, "Oh, I get it."

He didn't violate.

But the calling official shall indicate the spot with a point & the administering official shall designate the spot with a point, correct?

I wouldn't make any assumption about whether they know it. But, I dont' tell them anything on this type of throw in.

"Spot throw-in" is what I say when I decide to say anything, which is usually after a TO or other prolonged delay, and only on A's BC endline.
