2016/17 NYS Modifications

The following are NYS modifications to the NCAA rule book for the 2016/17 season:

NYSGBO will use four (4) full timeouts (60 seconds) and two (2) 30s during a regulation game. Each team will gain an additional 30 for each OT period. Timeouts can be used at any time during the game.

A reminder that NYSGBO does not use the RA (restricted arc), LDB (Lower Defensive Box) or courtside monitors.


10 Seconds Update


Once again, we are going to offer the deal with NASO to save you some money for those who like Referee Magazine and the NASO benefits. The cost is $79. It is not mandatory, but those who choose to join must pay by the Oct. 25 meeting. Secretary-treasurer Jeff Fried will be collecting checks or cash tonight and at the Oct. 25 meeting.

The deadline for dues was March 1. If you failed to pay your dues on time, please reach out to Jeff Fried, 13 Spruce Court, Selden, NY  11784 for the total amount due to include the late fine.

We will not tolerate negative statements or actions between opposing players, especially trash-talking, taunting or baiting of opponents. If such comments are heard or actions seen, a penalty will be assessed immediately. We have been instructed not to issue warnings. Let today's contest reflect mutual respect.
