All games are played under FIBA rules, with modifications below:
All games are 4-on-4, with full line substitutions when possible.
For any 3 second violations, give warning to the athletes first and then call the violation.
Coaches will lower the main hoops to approximately 9-9.5ft in height if possible. They should not be lowered the entire way down.
*NEW FOR 2023/2024* Teams that are fouled on a shooting foul will shoot 1 foul shot worth 2pts. If the player is fouled in the act of shooting and makes the basket, it counts as usual (2pts) and their foul shot will only count for 1pt.
After the 5th team foul in a half, there will be a bonus shots on any non-shooting foul. No shots are taken on a non-shooting foul unless the team is in bonus.
No full court pressure is permitted. Intentional double team is also not permitted. Man-to-man defense only.
Clock stops for injuries, timeouts or substitutions only.
4 x 9 minute run-time quarters with 5 minute half time and 1 minute between quarters. Warm up will be 5 minutes.
6:00pm games must start by 6:10pm and be completed by 7:20pm.
7:30pm games must start by 7:40pm and be completed by 8:50pm.
There is no overtime during regular season play.
For playoffs, overtime will result in 6 min of game time with subs every 2 minutes. If the game is still tied at the end of 6min, a double overtime will be played, first to 4pts
Full line substitutions when possible - a team with less than 4 available subs will require a player to have a double shift. Athletes are not permitted to have more than 2 shifts in a row. This is a fair play program and athletes must be given the opportunity to equally play and participate.
Coaches can agree to have the horn go ever 3 minutes for subbing and should run a fair play system.
REFEREES TO WARN PLAYERS WHENEVER POSSIBLE BEFORE CALLING INFRACTIONS/FOULS.
