Welcome to the IAABO Board 130 web site.

Board 130 was granted its charter from the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials on Nov. 15, 1951. Board 130 consists of more than 400 members who officiate basketball games from the grammar school to college level. We have active Membership and Development committees who work to ensure that our newer members be given every opportunity to improve their skills and advance their officiating careers.

We hope you find this web site informative and helpful. For more information about Board 130, contact us at

Contact Above the Shoulders (clarification):

For the 2012-13 season the NFHS Rules Committee issued a Point of Emphasis (POE) on contact above the shoulders.  The POE defined illegal contact from a moving elbow where such contact was above the shoulders as being either an intentional foul or a flagrant one.  This guidance regarding these play situations was provided in connection with the continuing emphasis on reducing concussions and decreasing excessive contact situations.  It also helped to bring the results of such plays in high school games more in line with what is defined at the NCAA and pro levels. For more information and examples (click this link)
