The purpose behind the plan of the three- official system is to get full court coverage at all times by reducing the area ... it is very difficult for two officials to cover all areas on the court with the proper concentration on each area at all times. ... The diagrams that are presented to show one plan of operation may help the reader to a clearer understanding of the three-man system.
