What are the rules of play?

1. Teams can have 3 or 4 players entering high school or older (no age maximum). Teams are allowed to have male and female members.

2. Teams are expected to be on the court and ready to play no later than 5 minutes after the preceding game has ended. Each minute they are late will result in the opposing team earning 2 points. If a team is not on the court 10 minutes after the preceding game has ended, they will forfeit the game.

3. Each game will be to 21 points. Teams score by either regular two-point baskets, or by three- point shots taken from outside the three-point circle.

4. A coin flip will determine which team will start the game with the ball.

5. After a basket has been scored or a foul called, a player must put the ball in play from a line past the three point line above the foul key.

6. An unwritten 30-second shot clock is in effect at all times and may be enforced by the referee at his/her discretion. If the referee believes a violation is close to occurring, he or she will give a 10 second warning in which the offensive team must attempt a shot. The shot must make contact with the rim of the basket for the shot clock to be restarted. A defensive foul also re-sets the shot clock.

7. All fouls will result in the ball being taken out. (No foul shots) If a player accumulates 4 fouls in a single game, he or she will be removed from that game.

8. On any change of possession, players must return the ball by dribble or pass across the three point line before a basket may be attempted. Once across the line, they do not have to pass the ball before shooting.

9. After a basket, the team scored upon will put the ball in play.

10. The three second free throw lane rule will apply to all offensive players.

11. Substitutions may be made after a basket or an out of bounds play.

12. All held balls will be put into play behind the three point line with possession given alternately to each team.

Final note: This tournament is meant for participants to have fun. Behavior including, but not limited to, arguing with the referee, unacceptable language and signs of threatening actions may result in a team’s or player’s ejection from the tournament.
