|South Central Massachusetts Board of
Approved Basketball Officials,
|Should any officials have an incident involving the post game handshake, unsporting behavior by fans or
game participants, or any compromise of their personal safety during or after an MIAA tournament game,
please write a report of the incident. Reports should be written immediately after the incident by each official
or the crew (all should sign a single common report). It is imperative that we document ALL incidents.
The report should only include the facts of what happened and be void of opinions, beliefs, etc.
Officials should provide a copy of their reports to the local board secretary, Mike Hammond and myself. Mike
and I will see that the MIAA gets a copy and will also provide Peter Carroll copies prior to the 3/27 meeting
with Jim Peters of MIAA.
We are aware of several incidents in just the first three days of the tournament and have received reports.
Please share these instructions with the officials on your board.
|The link to “High School Sport Schedules” to the left of this message is a good way to stay up to
date with High School schedules. Most ADs are using this site to post updates to schedules. Enter
the name of high school in the “Find Your School” box and it will provide a list for you to choose
from. To simplify the search, enter only the school’s name: for example “Milford” and then select the
appropriate school for the list.
|Tips and taps The following WEB site helps officials hone their knowledge and understanding of
the game. This is accomplished through discussion of a particular rule, for example "3 seconds".
Then you have a chance to take a quiz and view video of the rule being discussed. You will need to
create an account on this site and log in to use the service. Site is updated weekly during the
season. Sponsored by IAABO at iaabomembers.org
Concussions: Game officials shall complete one of the training programs approved by the
