When my children played youth basketball, it seemed that every game had a delay to discuss which team gets possession after a held ball signal. Sometimes it was simply awarded to the wrong team. I realized that the table, that is supposed to keep track, usually has an inexperienced volunteer. The truth is, it can be tricky for anyone. In most cases, the official will keep track on his or her own to try to keep the game moving along.
Many officials often use some type of improvised device to keep track of AP. One official may switch rubber bands on their wrists while others fumble through their pockets to find out which side has the chapstick or whistle. Not good optics for an official or tournament director. Officials needed something.
Discbands® was created to be helpful, efficient and professional. This wristband is not jewelry or a bracelet in the same way the whistle is not considered a necklace. Discbands® removes the burden of remembering alternate possession so the official can focus on the technical aspects of the game.
