In this video you will learn how to avoid the various time violations in basketball.
In basketball, there are four types of time violation
The first violation is the 24-second rule.
The attacking team has 24 seconds to attempt a field goal, from the moment they take possession of the ball.
If by the end of the 24 seconds, the team still hasn't taken a shot, the referee will whistle and turn the ball over to the other team.
If the team shoots, and catches the rebound without the ball touching the hoop, the 24 seconds keep being counted.
However, if the ball has touched the hoop, the team gets another 14 seconds on the clock.
The second violation is the 8-second rule.
When a team gets the ball within their own half of the court, including on turnovers, they have 8 seconds to get the ball into the opponent's half.
The third violation is the 5-second rule.
In the case of a throw in, the player has five seconds to pass the ball to a teammate.
During play, if the player in possession is under pressure from an opponent less than a meter away, they have only 5 seconds to pass, shoot or dribble.
The fourth violation is the three-second rule.
In offense, a player can't stay in the key for longer than 3 seconds at a time.
To earn another three seconds, the player has to get both feet outside the key before going back in.
The violation isn't called if the player is coming out of the key, or if one of the team is taking a shot at the end of these three seconds.
The penalty for all these violations is a turnover for the opponent, so always bear them in mind! Over to you!
