Shot Clock Rules – Cheat Sheet

Shot Clock Operator
• Check equipment – holding, resets, buzzer
• Discuss calling procedure with Visuals Operator/Timer

During the Game:
• Beginning of the game: shot clock starts on possession.
• Beginning of all other quarters & extra time: shot clock starts as soon as it is touched by any player on court.
• On a throw-in, shot clock starts on touch by any player.
• If there is a change of possession which is a new control of the ball reset the shot clock to 24 seconds
• After the ball hits the ring attempting to score – reset, hold, wait for possession, then start.
• ‘Ball in/off the hand’ to reply to Chairperson if questioned about whether a shot will count
• Floor wipe (Referee stoppage – reset, Player request – hold, let ref decide)
• Injury (Offensive – hold, Defensive – reset)
• Hold (and check) on held ball
• Hold on double foul/special situations and if a team is in control of the ball no reset, if no team in control of the ball check possession arrow.
• If in doubt, hold, look at time displayed, check with Chairperson
• Say “Holding on …(number of seconds)” in every ‘hold’ situation
• Say “Shot clock finished” at end of quarter
• Count for end of each quarter (“8”, “5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0”)
“8” – flick over from 8.0 to 7.9, etc
Communicate sub/time out requests
