Rule 1-13-2 : Adding New Coaching Box Lines
In accordance with rule 1-13-2, the coaching box shall be outlined the side of the court on which the scorer’s and timer’s table and team benches are located. The area shall be bounded by a line drawn 28 feet from the end line towards the Division line. At this point a line drawn from the sideline toward the team bench becomes the end of the coaching box going towards the end line.
Note that some State Associations may alter the length and placement of the 28 foot (maximum) coaching box.
The new rule allows coaches more freedom to communicate with their players as they are permitted to go from the end line to the new 28 ft mark.
