Points of Emphasis
In the 2016-2017 season, Board 23 began utilizing HUDL for review of game footage. It was a successful endeavor in which it really gave officials and observers the opportunity to view video. Since then, the Executive Committee decided to upgrade its package to make HUDL available to all officials.
This season, the board plans to step it up by adding a HUDL Coordinator to assist in game video review as an additional method of training and improvement for our officials.
The main focus of Board 23 is to stress the importance of video to analyze positioning on the court and to assess body language. As basketball officiating continues to progress with modern technology, there is hard proof that game film greatly benefits officials...and organizations.
