My son's school is sponsored by a sports company, and they are given a new set of uniforms each year--sized, of course, to the varsity. That set, with the extra long current style shorts, get handed...

Anywhere in which that is not an immediate ejection from the facility with a significant suspension is not somewhere a rational person would want to referee.

My son played in an AAU game recently in which the opposing coach was given a third T, I believe for rather graphic language as he was leaving half way through the first half. He mysteriously came...

Easier said than done. Without playing on a club, its tough to "keep up with the Jones" in modern basketball once you get to HS and HS coaches expect that player are playing in the off season.

CA uses 35 (at least for boys--I have a vague sense that girls might be 30, and I believe they have used the shot clock longer than the boys). The 35 seems about right to me--certainly doesn't need...

There are clip on hoops that attach to the 10' hoops. My kids played on them at the Y when they were little.

I hate attributing any referee failure to lack of courage from just a clip. And I always think it more useful to look at these as "how do I not end up there" than as "boy, he screwed up." But, boy,...
