FAQs

To mix it up in the later parts of the season, I start asking them questions.

I intro the officials, ask for speaking captains, point out the lines to the visitors then get into the Q&A.
"So gentlemen/ladies, where do your jerseys belong? And your pants?
Where do you report for substitutions? And when do you come on the court?
Blue, you knock down white, what will you do? White, you knock down blue, what will you do? Basketball is a great game, now go have fun."

I was just doing some "chain yanking".

McMac: Your move?

You're joking about all of this, right? Please? You lost me at pointing out the lines on the court, and it went downhill from there...

I like some of these. Questions get through to kids more so than statements.

"Coaches, is everybody properly and legally equipped?"
"Can I expect good sporting behavior from everyone here today?"

Depending upon the level, I see a good use for some of Mc's questions.

I could have justified pointing out the lines last night: Black line surrounded by a wide red stripe all the way around the court. Middle school boys.

But I didn't. And the visiting team was never once confused.

You say this to the speaking captain of a girls team?

I did this (word-for-word) for pregame tonight between two teams whose bad blood traditionally runs freely and fully.

It worked. Turned out to be a great, sporting contest.

By this time of season, they've heard it so many times. A partner recently told me that when they got together, a coach said "everyone's properly equipped, we know the concussion rule, we'll let you know on timeouts, they'll display good sportsmanship, did i forget anything?"

the shorter the better.

Frequently used in college games. I wouldn't use it in HS.
