Game / Playing Rules

  1. Game consists of 2 - 20 minute running halves with stop time the last minute of each half. During the first 19 minutes of each half, the time only stops for injuries and timeouts.
  2. Pre-game and halftime are usually 3-5 minutes, but may be shortened at the discretion of the referees and tournament officials in order to keep games on time.
  3. If a game is tied at the end of regulation there will be a 1 minute overtime for all games (no time outs for either team, even if have some left – none carry over). If there is still a tie after one overtime, it goes to sudden death – the first team to score wins. All overtimes start with a jump ball.
  4. Each team gets 4 full timeouts per game.
  5. If a team is up by 25 points or more, the clock runs through the last minute, even if the lead slips below 25 points.
  6. No full court pressing by the team leading once their lead reaches 25 points.
  7. Bonus foul shots (1 and 1) starting on the 7th team foul per half. Double bonus on the 10th team foul per half.
  8. Player is disqualified after 5 personal fouls.
  9. Technical, flagrant, and intentional fouls are not shot. They are an automatic 2 points and ball possession for the non-violating team. If a player or coach is assessed two of these fouls, they are removed from the game and must leave the gym, and must meet with the tournament director before being allowed to play or coach in subsequent games. Technical fouls also count as personal fouls.
  10. No harassment of officials, players or coaches will be tolerated. Any violation of this will result in the removal of that person without refund of money.
  11. The regulation girls’ size (NFHS) basketball for high school play will be used for all girls’ age groups.

    The regulation boys’ size basketball will be used in boys’ age groups 13 and above. Boys 10 through 12 shall use a girls’ regulation ball – unless both coaches agree to use a boys ball).

  12. Teams must bring their own practice basketballs. The game ball will be chosen from one of the two teams.
  13. All other rules that are not stated above will follow the NHSFA (National High School Federation) rules.

Players Eligibility

  1. All coaches are responsible to see that their roster meets all eligibility requirements and is in agreement with the rules for out-of-season play that are listed by your state athletic association.
  2. The coach is responsible for providing the appropriate identification for all of their players (birth certificate, copy of a current year report card, student picture ID with grade level, AAU membership card,…) for age division verification. If a player in question does not produce identification when asked, they may not play in any further games until it is produced. If this affects enough of your players where you cannot field at least five on the court, you will forfeit that game and all subsequent games, with a loss of any fees/admissions paid.

     

  3. Any challenges of a player's age division must be made BEFORE game time to a tournament director (and it must come from the team’s head coach). A team that challenges MUST have all of their verification paperwork available for their team in order to make a challenge – no challenge will be accepted if the challenging team does not have their paperwork on hand. The ONLY person who will look at the verification paperwork is the tournament director – the opposing coaches, parents and/or players will not have access to the verification paperwork. This is due to privacy concerns.
