Team Control Begins and Ends When...

Team control exists:

When a player of the team is in control (a player is in control when holding or dribbling a live ball).

When a live ball is being passed among teammates.

During an interrupted dribble.

When the ball is at the disposal of a player for a throw-in.

Team control is lost when one of the following occur:

The ball is in flight during a try or tap for goal.

An opponent secures control (must hold or dribble a live ball).

The ball becomes dead (a held ball occurs, a player-control foul or team-control foul occurs, an official’s whistle is blown, time expires at the end of a quarter or extra period, a foul other than a player-control or team control foul occurs.

The ball does not become dead until the try or tap ends or an airborne shooter returns to the court; and when a player-control or team-control foul occurs, the ball does not become dead.
