This video was developed by IAABO to show the Case Book in an audio-visual format to help officials learn the rules by seeing them applied in a real game situation.
The viewer can pause or “rewind” the video on any page to allow the necessary time to understand information that is discussed.  
We hope that you will enjoy this educational tool and that it enhances your understanding of the rules.

Wide Triangle (Co3)
(IAABO Manual pg. 92)
The wide triangle outlines optimum court coverage and positioning for the crew. The Lead is wide toward the sideline with depth off the end line. The Center and Trail are positioned at the sideline in their respective initial starting positions. The location of the ball and players will dictate position adjustments.

Obviously the crew cannot be in these exact positions all the time.  This graphic should be a reminder to all officials of where the initial starting positions are and how being wide in all positions is beneficial to have a good cone of vision to observe the activity in their respective primary coverage areas.
