  • Traveling violation (when player takes more than two steps after dribbling in FIBA you can't even take one step, in the NBA you can take two, in some countries you can take three).
  • Over and back/back-court-violation (When player with the ball steps behind the half-court line after crossing it).
  • Kicked-Ball-violation (when a player on defense kicks the ball).
  • Double-dribbling violation (A player cannot stop dribbling and then start back).
  • Five second violation (A player has five seconds to inbound the ball before the ref blows the whistle).
  • Eight second violation (NBA)/Ten second violation (high school/college) (A player has eight seconds to bring the ball to the other side of the court to the basket they're trying to score on when going on offense. In high school and college it's 10 seconds instead of 8).
  • 24 second shot-clock violation (NBA)/35 second shot-clock violation (NCAA) (Players on offense has 24 seconds set on their shot-clock which is mostly set above the backboard, they have 24 seconds (35 in college) to make a basket, if the clock expires without the ball being shot first it's a violation, if the ball hits the rim and the team on offense rebounds (gets) the ball they will have a new 24 seconds).
  • Three-in-the-key violation (player's cannot stay in the paint area under the rim for 3 seconds unless they are guarding someone).
  • Back-to-basket (Player cannot be in the post with a player guarding him with his/her back turned for five seconds).
