Team Foul
A Team Foul is generally assessed at the same time as a Personal Foul is assessed to a player belonging to that team.

Fun and productive daily Team Foul Shooting Drill
A coach will put three minutes on the clock. At his GO CALL each group begins shooting.

Player must make both ends of a one and one. If he does, he yells out his last name and the coach records this as a team point.

Team foul
This is called when a team has committed five fouls - personal or technical - in any one period.
The opposing team is awarded with two free throws.

Team Foul - Each personal foul committed by a player is also counted against his team; when a team goes over the limit, its opponent is awarded free-throw opportunities.

Team Fouls - The number of total personal fouls either team is permitted in each period or half. Once a team reaches its limit of team fouls, any additional foul sends the opposing team to the free throw line to shoot a one-and-one.

~s penalty rule: When the players of a team, in a period of a game (10 minutes), have committed four (4) player fouls (personal and/or technical), all subsequent player personal fouls shall be penalised by two (2) free throws.

When a team (as a whole) has committed 4 fouls in any one period all subsequent personal fouls by the players of that team will be penalized by the opposing team being awarded 2 free throws.

A personal foul is charged to the team as well as the player (except for an offensive foul in the National Basketball Association). When a team commits a certain number of fouls in a specified period, the opposing team is awarded free throws for each personal foul. See bonus free throw.

Personal fouls are a very important team resource. In a sense, you get 6 per half with no penalty whatsoever, if they were not committed upon a shooter.

~s: The number of fouls that a team has against it before going over the limit and its opponent is awarded a free-throw.
Technical Foul: A foul called as a result of misconduct in which the opponent is awarded a free-throw.

If your number of ~s is 5 or less, play very aggressive defense. If the opponent waits until the last few seconds to make the move to the hoop, you could foul (unintentionally) the ball-handler.

over the limit: when a team commits 5 or more ~s per NBA period (4 in each overtime); 8 or more per WNBA half; 7 or more per half in college; this team is also said to be in the penalty. overtime or OT: the extra period(s) played after a regulation game ends tied.

over the limit: when a team commits more than 5 ~s per NBA period (4 in each overtime) or more than 7 per half in college. overtime or OT: the extra period(s) played after a regulation game ends tied.

" board A rebound bonus under NCAA and NFHS rules, a team is "in the bonus" when its opponent has seven, eight or nine ~s in a half and so gains a one and one opportunity on each non-shooting foul. The opposing team is "over the limit." See also double bonus and penalty.

Under college rules, the seventh ~ in a half puts the opponents in the "one-and-one", in which the fouled player must make the first free throw in order to earn a second (except for fouls in the act of shooting).

(2) ~ trouble occurs when a team accumulates four or more ~s in a quarter and is "in the bonus."
Free throw: An uncontested shot taken from the free throw line as a result of a foul. Also called a "foul shot." A successful (made) free throw is worth 1 point.

" Additionally, each personal foul counts towards a ~. Teams are allotted a specified number of ~s, usually six, before free-throws are awarded for non-shooting fouls, starting with one-and-one.

Every half a team can foul the other team four times and these are called ~s. If a foul is committed by fouling a shooter there is no team penalty for this because this is a personal foul and the player gets to shoot free throws.

In college, it's the 7th ~ per half that gets you into the bonus, but you will be shooting whats called a 1 and 1. This means that you must make the first one, to get a second.

If a team's 7th, 8th, or 9th ~ is a non-shooting foul when it is on defense, the fouled player must make the first free throw in order to earn a second. On the 10th ~, the opponents enter the double bonus, in which all non-shooting fouls by the defense result in two free throws.

Bonus: A team is "in the bonus" when it accumulates seven or more ~s in a half, giving the other team a free throw on each subsequent foul. Also called being "over the limit."
Bounce pass: A pass that bounces once before reaching the receiver.

If a team has 4 ~s (four fouls committed total by one team in one quarter), a player will shoot two free throws when fouled when they are not shooting. One player is chosen to shoot a free throw when a technical foul is given, which usually results from unsportsmanlike conduct. (MORE) ...

Comment: This rule has been replaced by bonus free throws after a certain number of ~s.

Players who commit five fouls in high school and college or six fouls in the NBA are disqualified or eliminated from that particular game. Teams should avoid more than six total ~s in each half.

Contact between players that may result in injury or provide one team with an unfair advantage; players may not push, hold, trip, hack, elbow, restrain or charge into an opponent; these are also counted as ~s.
