Rules Clarification - Uniform Shorts
We have seen male and female players with the waistband of their uniform shorts rolled up revealing the inside elastic portion. We requested clarification on this and the FHSAA has told us that they have no position on this subject and are allowing each association to determine how we want to enforce this. The leadership of the CFOA does not believe that rolling up the waistband of the uniform shorts materially alters the way the shorts were meant to be worn and does not violate Rule 3.5.5. However, if a 2nd logo is revealed, then the waistband must be rolled down or the logo must be removed or covered and the draw string must always be tucked inside the shorts.

A defender in a marked lane space for a F.T. may not break the plain of the F.T. line (toward the F.T. shooter) prior to the ball hitting the rim, (Delayed F.T. VIOLATION). A defender on the lane may still block out the F.T. shooter in the lane area on release of the ball and may block out over the F.T. lane line (marked semi-circle area) after the ball hits the rim without violation. HOWEVER, if the defender bumps, hits, clears the F.T. shooter, a FOUL is to be called, prior to or after the ball hitting the rim.
