Photo by MaxPreps

A new basketball season is rapidly approaching and the new bulletin from the Connecticut basketball rules interpreters is now available. Click here to view the bulletin in full. There are minimal rules changes for this coming season. Officials will continue to enforce the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) Points of Emphasis, which allows each team to compete equally through the use of skill, athleticism and Freedom of Movement Principles. The Connecticut High School Basketball Rules Interpreters have developed this “Bulletin” as a communication resource to share among basketball officials, athletic directors and coaches.  Our objective is to promote a common understanding to the rules that regulate the game of high school basketball.  In future bulletins, we will describe actual play scenarios to aid in your understanding of specific rulings.
