Baskets made from inside the 2 point arc count for 1 point. Baskets made from outside the 2 point arc count for 2 points. A player is considered outside the 2 point arc when neither of his/her feet are inside nor touch the arc. Each free throw counts for 1 point.

  1. 2. Length of Game

The first team to reach 15 points within 20 minutes of play is declared the winner. You do not need to win by 2 points or greater. The 20 minute clock only stops for injuries and timeouts. At the end of the 20 minutes if neither team reached 15 points then the team that is leading will be declared the winner. If the game is tied at the end of 20 minutes there will be a 1 minute overtime in which the first team to score wins.

  1. 3. Which Team Receives the Ball First?

A coin toss prior to each game and to start overtime determines which team first gets the ball.

  1. 4. Checked Ball

The ball must be “checked “by an opposing player before it is put into play. The “check-in” must occur behind the designated line above the 2-point arc and not any out- of- bounds line. The on-ball defender must remain behind the 2-point arc until the ball is “checked” and possessed. The ball may be passed, dribbled or a shot may be attempted once it is “checked” and possessed.

  1. 5. Taking It Back

The ball will be “taken back” on each change of possession regardless of whether or not a shot was attempted. Failure to “take it back” results in loss of possession and any points just scored. When taking the ball back, the player must be outside the 2 point arc.

  1. 8. Stalling

Stalling is prohibited at all times. Stalling involves a style of play in which a team does not actively attempt to advance the basketball toward the basket and shoot the ball at the basket. It is a method used in an attempt to run out the game clock to preserve a win. Stalling is considered an unsportsmanlike act and will result in a Technical Foul against the offending team.

  1. D. FOULS

  1. 1. Common Foul

Basketball referees will call fouls for all the games. All non-shooting fouls, including offensive fouls shall result in 1 free throw. A made basket shall not count when an offensive foul occurs. If the fouled player is in the “act of shooting” and the shot is missed, that player will be awarded 1 free throw on a 1 point try and 2 free throws on a 2 point try. If the 1 or 2 point try is made, the fouled player will receive 1 free throw.

During a free throw, all players must stand behind the free throw line. An opposing player that intentionally disrupts the shooter’s unhindered throw, which is missed, entitles the shooter to another free throws, regardless of whether the last free throw is made or missed.

Common Foul Exception: In the Elite Division, team fouls will be counted each game. All fouls, including offensive, Intentional, Technical and Flagrant fouls count as team fouls, when the fouls reach 7 all fouls will result in 2 free throws, unless the basket associated with the foul is made, in which case the basket will count and 1 free throw will be awarded.

Common Foul Exception: No Free throws are awarded for any Intentional, Flagrant, or Technical Foul. The offended team receives 1 point and obtains possession of the ball.

  1. 2. Intentional Foul

An Intentional foul includes, but isnot limited to, a foul designed to neutralize an opponent’s obvious advantageous position. It may be an act that is not a legitimate effort to directly play the ball or while attempting to play the ball, results in excessive contact.

  1. 3. Technical Foul

A Technical Foul includes, but is not limited to, unsportsmanlike acts such as taunting, baiting or trash talk by a player or coach. Taunting and baiting can involve derogatory remarks or gestures that incite or insult a player, official or fan. Trash talk involves a deeply personal, verbal attack directed toward any person involved in the event. In extreme cases, the player or coach may be suspended from play and removed from the court for the remainder of that game and possibly for the rest of the tournament. A Technical foul will also be assessed if a team is stalling in the interest of preserving a lead.

  1. 4. Flagrant Foul

A Flagrant foul may be an act of a violent or aggressive nature, or one that displays unacceptable conduct. It may or may not be intentional. It may involve violent or aggressive contact such as striking, kicking, kneeing, moving under an opponent who is in the air, and crouching or hipping in a manner that could cause severe injury to the opponent. It may also involve dead ball contact or dialogue which is extreme or persistent, aggressive or abusive. A Flagrant foul will also be assessed on any player who comes into physical contact with or assaults a basketball referee or other tournament official.
