4th grade jump ball rule

(1/2) > >>

Cowetabballfan:
I was just wondering how possession is awarded after a jump ball is called at the 4th grade level. From what other leagues have down possession is awarded to non possessing team(defense). However I have been unable to find consistantsy between the games and calls. Just trying to find out what the actual rule states.

Director of Officials:
The arrow is awarded to the team that did not get the opening tip in most instances.  Do you have a specific example or are you asking in general? 

Cowetabballfan:
Excluding the initial tip off of course, every jump ball there after. When too players from opposing teams have possession at the same time or trying to steal from a cornered or stalled player or if the ball were to roll on the ground.

Director of Officials:
No it not always the defense.  Alternating possession (depends on which way the arrow is pointing) 

Cowetabballfan:
That is a theory i had, but the calls dont exactly match up to that. Its usually a guessing game. Ive seen 3 calls in a row go to one team, with 2 being on offense and 1 on defense. Very confusing.
