Rules: These rules are based on the National Federation of State High School Athletic Associations Rules with the following adaptations:
*Please note that teams will be asked to keep score and time for the games they are playing in - this person can be a team manager or spectator*
1. Teams will consist of a maximum of six players. Three players are required to start the game. A team may continue with two players, if no other eligible players are available.2. Each team should have two sets of uniform shirts available, one white and one dark. Each shirt should have a legal number printed on the front and back, no smaller than eight inches high. (Legal numbers are: 0-5, 10-15, 20-25, 30-35, 40-45 and 50-55.)
3. The team at the top of the bracket will be designated the home team.4. Games will be played half court.
5. All games will be officiated by one or two officials.6. First possession will be determined by a coin flip before the game between two team representatives. The visitor shall make the call and have the choice.
7. Games will consist of two 15 minute halves. The clock will be on running time except for in the final two minutes of the second half. In the final two minutes of the second half, the clock will stop when play is disrupted by the official’s whistle. Half-time will be five minutes in duration.8. The ball must be taken behind the 3-point line after each change of possession. (The ball must be in possession of a player whose feet are behind the 3-point arc.)
9. After each made basket, the ball must be checked at the top of the key and thrown to another player to start play. The team that was on defense will be awarded the ball. (Not make it; take it.)10. Three points are scored for a successful shot from beyond the 3-point arc, two points for all other goals from the floor. One point is scored for a successful free throw.
11. Any foul during the act of shooting will result in 2 free throws for the shooter. The ball will be live if the second free throw is missed. If both free throws are made, the ball is awarded as if a team scored during regular play. All other common fouls after 5 team fouls will result in a 1 and 1 bonus free throw situation.12. A player, after committing five fouls, will be disqualified from the game.
13. Each team may call two timeouts per game. Timeouts are one minute in duration and the clock will be stopped. The timer will sound the warning horn at the 45 second mark and play will resume at the one minute mark.
14. If the game is tied at the end of regulation play, a two minute overtime period will be played after a one minute intermission. A coin flip will determine first possession in the overtime period. This procedure will be repeated until a winner is determined.
15. In the case of an injured player during co-ed games only, the game in progress must be played to completion before any additions to the roster be made. Once the team/player has been allowed the "emergency roster addition" the original injured player is done for the tournament and will not be allowed to play for the remainder of the tournament on ANY team. Co-ed teams have enough male players, 4 total with 2 max on the court, that the "emergency roster addition" will not include them until they are down to only 2 male players. Female emergency substitutes are allowed following the first injury. All emergency substitutes must be approved by the Tournament Director prior to ANY participation and are strongly suggested to not be a participant from another basketball team.
Basketball includes five divisions: Open, Recreation, Co-ed, Open, Co-ed Rec, and Youth.
Teams entered in the co-ed division require one woman on the court at all times. Teams in the youth division are for athletes 6-13 years old.
All teams will play in an opening round. Teams winning in the first round will advance to the "Open" division and will play for the Open medals. Teams losing in the first round will advance to the "Recreation" division and will play for the Recreation medals. All teams will be guaranteed at least two games in this format.
All players must wear court shoes. Balls will be provided.
*If an athlete does not scratch from an event and subsequently fails to compete in that event, he/she will be ineligible to compete in any other events in that sport for that day.
