§  Teams must be ready to play at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled game time.

§  Pregame warm-up will be 5 minutes and half time will be 3 minutes.

§  Games will consist of two 16 minute halves with a running clock.  The clock will stop only during timeouts, injuries and the last 2 minutes of the second half.  The clock will not stop if one team is leading by 15 or more points.

§  Fouls will be tracked but only shooting fouls will be shot in the first half.  In the second half normal high school rules will apply after 7 (Bonus) and 10 team fouls (Double Bonus).

§  Each team is allowed 2 timeouts per half and 1 timeout in overtime.  Timeouts are one minute in length.

§  Overtime will be two minutes in length.  The clock will stop the last minute of overtime.  Double overtime will be sudden death.  The first team to score 2 points in double overtime wins.  If neither team scores two points, a team ahead by one point at the end of sudden death is the winner.  If sudden death ends in a tie, then each of the ten players on the floor will shoot one free throw.  The team making the most free throws is the winner.

§  4th and 5th grade cannot full court press EXCEPT a trailing team may full court press the last minute of the game.  Otherwise, defense may pick up at half court.
