If a team arrives early, ball handling is permitted on the court prior to the timed warm ups. If both teams are present, each team shall be restricted to their side of the playing court. The warm-up time for each match will be 2-6-6 with both teams sharing the first 2 minutes, the first 6 minutes will be the home team on the entire court, and the second 6 minutes will be the visiting team on the entire court. When teams are off the court, ball handling is allowed if space allows. If space is limited teams shall be restricted to ball handling behind the end line. The team listed on the top of the bracket shall be the home team. Teams listed on the bottom of the bracket shall be the visiting team.
Reminder: End of Set or Match
Just a reminder that per the NFHS Case Book and Officials Manual on page 66, End of Set or Match Protocol ……..
While players on the court no longer have to go to the end line before they are released they do still have to proceed behind the R1's stand to the other side of the court. The team members walk in front of the officials' table to their new team benches. The players (on the court) proceed counterclockwise along the sidelines past the standards to their new team benches. If you have any questions please contact the IHSA Office.
