Many coaches go into their first basketball game and are confused about what many of the referee signals mean. Don't let this happen to you. If you want to present yourself as a knowledgeable and confident coach, do yourself a favor...learn what the various basketball referee signals mean.
I have compiled a list of the most common basketball referee signals that you'll see during a game. In addition to this list, I have also included a link at the bottom of the page to the National Federation of State High School Associations. There you’ll find and be able to print off a chart of thirty-eight basketball signals used in the game today.
For a more thorough list of basketball referee signals...check out the chart from the
National Federation of State High School Associations.
I'd encourage you to print this chart off and keep a copy with you at all times. This is a simple, yet effective way to learn the various referee signals.
