Coaches permitted on
court to defuse fights
The National Federation of State High School Associations, which governs rules for high school sports, has enacted a new basketball rule regarding coaches coming onto the court to break up or prevent fights.
Starting this season, coaches can come onto the court to break up a fight or keep a situation from escalating.
Previously, the head coach could only enter the court if beckoned by an official.
The rules committee agreed that the presence of the head coach on the court could be instrumental in preventing the situation from escalating, and the coach also could assist game officials in controlling the situation.
The panel also approved use of electronic devices during games to allow a coach to use them in coaching and gathering statistics.
However, electronic equipment cannot be used for voice communication with players or to review a decision made by the contest officials.
Another rule change will permit a single, visible manufacturer's logo/trademark on the team jersey, not to exceed 2-1⁄4 square inches.
The logo may be located no more than 5 inches below the shoulder seam on the front of the jersey or 2 inches from the neckline on the back of the jersey, or in either side insert.
