Double Dribble – The official will signal a double dribble violation has been committed by putting both of his hands in front of him, with palms down, and alternating them up and down, as if dribbling a basketball.
A violation, on the other hand, is an infraction of the rules of basketball that cause a team to lose possession of the ball. There are no free throws taken when a violation occurs. Basketball violations include such things as: double dribbling ; traveling ; over and back ; 3-seconds in the lane ; 10-seconds in the backcourt
The basketball official signals that a violation has occurred by blowing the whistle and holding one arm up in the air, with the palm open, followed by the sign for the specific violation. Travel Once a player establishes a pivot foot, he cannot lift that pivot foot and return it to the floor before releasing the ball on a pass or a shot.
To solve this problem, referees developed an extensive repertoire of hand signals to communicate calls for violations, fouls, timeouts, and more. These hand signals are largely universal across the sport and have been used by basketball referees for decades. Oftentimes, referees will blow the whistle to stop play and simultaneously communicate the call verbally while also using the corresponding hand signal.
