Full Court Press
Definition of a Press: The application of pressure, either direct or indirect to the opposing team in the backcourt. Once a team secures the ball in a non-press situation the defensive team must retreat to half court before defense can be applied. Turnovers cannot occur inthe backcourt as a result of direct or indirect defensive pressure. The defending team cannot deflect, tip or intercept the ball in the backcourt. The defending team cannot apply pressure which results in an offensive player losing control of the ball or stepping out of bounds. If this occurs, the ball will be awarded to the offensive team and a warning issued to defending team. Repeated offenses will result in a one shot technical foul.

Execption 1: Player 1 loses control of the ball of his own accord, the defending team can secure the ball in the backcourt. Example: Player 1 dribbles off his leg and ball is rolling on the floor.

Exception 2: If defending team has retreated to half court and the offensive team attempts to pass the ball to half court the defending team can steal, deflect, or tip the pass when it is at or near half court (1 step). Example: Defender retreats to half court, turns, and offensive player passes to intercept the pass.   

23. Div. I can press beginning at game 6 until a 10 point lead. Div. II can press the entire game to a 10 point lead. Div. I and II cannot press if they are ahead by 10 or more points. Div. III and IV can press buzzer to buzzer until they are ahead by 20 or more points.

24. The officials have the ruling power to decide if contact is incidental or a set planned defense resulting in contact on a dislodged ball on defense initiated loss of possession. Definition of a press: A press is defined as one or more players making a conscious and obvious effort to APPLY PRESSURE on the ball in the backcourt. Two players struggling for a loose ball or making contact to ball immediately after possession is NOT a press and is NOT an illegal defense. If, a player gains possession and then throws the ball to the other team in the backcourt. This is NOT a press or an illegal defense. This is a loose ball.

25. Div. I and II teams behind 20 points may press at any time until they return to a 10 point deficit.
