DAVE TYLER: Okay. Traveling is one of the
most frequent violations that you see in a basketball game. The dribbler has to establish
both feet in bounds and he is allowed one pivot foot. Often in basketball, the dribbler
will have the ball and move both feet simultaneous which would then indicate a travel or he may
drag his pivot foot or she may drag their pivot foot. There’s a lot different variations.
The mechanic for traveling would be again simply a whistle blow. The whistle would stop
the clock, hands would rotate and point to the way the ball would go. It’s just simply
side, sideline, out. Okay, we’re going to look at an example of traveling. First, we’re
going to look at a proper dribble and then a stop. Stop at the dribble, pivot and then
pivot with another foot. There we go. We got two pivot feet and that would be traveling.
That’s one variation. Another one would be to run for the ball where our dribbler would
catch the ball and then run and keep feet moving. That would be another example of travelling.
Third one would be: If he catches the ball while he is running and continues to run without
dribbling it. There we have a travel as well. So traveling is a call that you will make
frequently in a basketball game as an official.
