And in HS, if there are chairs above the 28' line we have the same problem.

I would like to see HS use the college coaches box. A 14 foot box, only has room for approximately 7 or 8 chairs. But until then....it is what it is

Try a six foot box as is the deal in Texas....

I don't know a single official in the board I was in that came close to enforcing the box. Six feet is a joke.

This board is generally so clean to read. I despise boards where 80% of the page is not content but garbage (avatars, big signatures, etc.) around the discussion.

Which, at least with current board software, would be only five total clicks away from being disabled (yes I actually counted).

APG, you already forgot we have chapters out here?

Adam was kidding about avatars, we're taking him out behind the woodshed now for some reeducation.

They increased the box to 14 feet for Varsity in TX. Still 6 feet for sub-varsity, but still no one really enforces it.

Thanks for the info...I remember going from (what was) the 6 foot box to the 14 foot box in Virginia...the difference

We use the full size box here but pretty much if the Coach isn't yelling at an official it is pretty much ignored.
