Penalty Yardage

Does anyone have an easy way to remember which fouls are 5, 10 or 15 yards?

Thanks in advance

Memorize them. Pg 95 of the NFHS rules book Penalty Summary.

Learn the 10 yard fouls. I don't know about Fed, but in NCAA, there are only about 8 or 9 10 yard penalties. You never should get confused with what's 5 or 15, but if you know all the 10 yard, then you'll know how to distinguish 10 and 15s.

Good idea for newer officials. There are only 6 in NF.

Green is 5 Yards and Red is 15....Others are just 10....

I agree with knowing your 10yd penalties, most of them involve some type illegal use of hands. (Fed)

The only tricky ones for 5 and 15 yarders are helping the runner (5) and batting/kicking the ball (15)...(Fed)

I did the same when I first started wearing the WH. Still have it in mine but I don't know if I can really tell the colors anymore.
