Unfortunatley, we are finding more and more that today's official is not doing well when it comes to rules understanding and application.  Starting June 2018, DDR will start a series of posts relating to rules.  We will start with NFHS which is the most common set of rules.



In order to apply rules correctly, we must know the rule and it's purpose.  To accomplish this task we must learn the defintions (Rule 4) first.  If we don't know the meaning of key words in the rules how can we apply them properly? 

Staring this week we will take a Deep Dive into Rule 4- Definitions topic by topic.  We hope that by doing so, everyone will have a better understanidng of the rest of the book and its application.  

All of these posts will conducted on the DDR website under the member news section.

 From here we will address NCAA Men's and Women's definitions.

Let's not forget the most important rule in any of our books...COMMON SENSE!  In order to be successul we cannot be a black & white rulebook referee.  Common Sense and Basketball IQ is a must.

I have learned a great deal from the Deep Dive Ref website as well as being a camper.  In today's competitive market of moving up in college basketball, the Deep Dive Ref Website certainly gives you a edge of being up-to-date with the latest teachings and technology to help you in the upcoming season.  The camp has given me the confidence to be the best official I can be!  Thank you very much to Deep Dive Ref!

DDR has provided me with easily accessible tools to improve my officiating abilities. The website with video plays, open forum discussion, rules quizzes and other unique abilities makes it easy to login & spend a few minutes to improve your skills. I truly enjoyed the DDR camp this past summer in LA. Staff was phenominal & the best part was the level of play being higher (junior college).  Most camps don't offer this level.  This allowed for a more realistic staff evaluation of my skills. I'm looking forward to attending this camp in the summers to come.

Deep Dive is a great tool for Officials at any level, there are so many things about the site that have helped me out with my officiating (training videos, testing, outstanding NBA/D1 support team and more). The camp I attended in Cerritos Ca. was very well organized and the level of play was exceptional. I've been to over a dozen camps and this one rates at the top of my list.

The Spoonman Referee School was one of the best camper experiences I have ever had! I was able to work some of the best basketball in the Country through the Nike Academy. Being selected to work the championship game on ESPN U was an honor. The best part was the one on one time with great Division I & NBA officials. The knowledge was incredible.  As a DDR website member I am looking forward to continue my growth through the upcoming season. Thanks DDR & Bill Spooner AKA "Spoonman"

Basketball officiating is becoming more & more complex & data driven. It's important to stay up to speed so we can succeed. DDR provides cutting-edge resources & knowledgeable personnel from all levels of the sport. Attending the Spoonman School was an invaluable experience; the players were some of the best in the country & the training we received from top DI & NBA referees was current & top notch! The DDR staff packages its content is a digestible & effective manner. A DDR subscription is a must have for all officials.
