- Scoring: 2 points per basket inside the arc. 3 points per basket outside the arc.
- Free Throws: One shot will be given to a player who is fouled in the act of shooting. A missed free throw is a live ball (unless it is an air ball). Players should line up per regular foul shot attempt. A free throw is worth 2 points. (*3 points for a 3 pointer, 1 point after a made basket)
- Bonus Free Throws: One shot (worth 2 points) will be given to a player fouled on the fifth foul and all subsequent fouls by the opponent. There is no double-bonus.
- Intentional fouls (no matter the time of the game) will result in 2 points PLUS the ball.
- If unnecessary or excessive fouls occur, the ref may impose a technical foul (2 points plus the ball.)
- Players have 6 seconds to shoot a free throw once the teams are lined up.
- Following a made basket or dead ball, the other team can check the ball anywhere above the top of the key. (an imaginary line that runs from sideline to sideline above the key)
- Both feet and the ball must go above the top of the key at a change of possession.
- A ball that goes out of bounds under the basket is checked in at the top of the key, a ball that goes across half court is out of bounds.
- Defense gets all jump balls.
- 3 seconds in the lane. Refs will issue reminders. Excessive violations will result in a turn-over.
- A defensive rebound must be taken past the top of the key (this includes air balls). There are no "free backs".
- No stalling. There will be a ref’s discretion 30-second shot clock. Failure to shoot in a 30-second period will result in loss of possession.
- No dunking during warm-ups or games. This may result in game or league ejection of player.
- "Paper, rock, scissors" (PRS) will determine which team gets the ball first. The court monitor assigned to your court will monitor PRS, ref your game, and record the outcome with the official scorekeeper. The HOME team must provide a scorekeeper for the entire game. This scorekeeper CANNOT coach and/or yell from the score table or they will be asked to leave.
- Ties will be settled with a sudden death free-throw shootout. Each team receives equalopportunities to shoot free throws until one team makes one and the other misses. New shooter each time.
- Uniforms are required (this can be matching t-shirt or jersey) – please make sure you have alternate colors for games – ex: if you have a red t-shirt, please also have a black t-shirt so that teams do not duplicate colors for the games or provide your team with pennies – ALL UNIFORMS MUST HAVE A NUMBER.
- At the end of the games, it is good sportsmanship to shake hands with your opponents.
- Help to keep the facility clean. Please, pick up your garbage.
