Online State Rules Interpretation Meeting Now Available

Posted by | October 6, 2011 .
The online version of the State Basketball Rules Interpretation Meeting will be available starting Wednesday, October 5, at 12:00 noon and will remain available until 12:00 midnight, Monday, November 7 2011.  For those unable to view this meeting online, the two nearest “in-person” meetings to our location will be held on….

Wednesday, October 12  @ 7:15pm  —  Mason High School Auditorium 
Tuesday, October 25 @ 7:15pm  —  West Carrollton High School Auditorium
Please make sure you attend either one of these meeting in person, or complete the online version.  Failure to do so will result in a $50 fee for you to complete this requirement. 
As in prior years, you must view all screens of the online presentation and complete the quiz in order to receive credit for the meeting.  In addition, this year upon completion of the online meeting, you will have a numbered certificate of completion at your disposal.  I would recommend that you print this certificate as proof of “attending the meeting”.. Please do not contact the OHSAA office to follow up on your meeting credit !!   Trust the system to record your attendance.
While there are very few rule changes this year, please take note of the emphasis on mechanics and signaling.  It will be a big part of our first local rules meeting presentation in late October.
