Note:
For K-1st and 2nd Grade – 4v4 instead of 5v5 will be game play unless communicated otherwise. For K-1st, 2nd Grade, 3rd and 4th grade Recreational Divisions: (No Full Court Divisions). Within 30 seconds of the end of the game and If the score is 3 points or less (no tie game) and the winning team has the ball then special rules apply. The winning team cannot hold the ball and kill the clock on their side of the court or outside of the 3 point line. The score keeper will freeze the clock with the time remaining and it will restart once the winning team crosses the half court line. The losing team can guard outside of the 3pt line and move to half court at this moment only. This is a one posession chance for the losing team to steal the ball and make a 3 point play to tie the game and send to overtime. This allows the losing team a chance for a tie or win. If the score is tied at 30 seconds or less the game continues and the clock rolls as normal. For an overtime scenario these same rules will apply as they do for end of regulation.

Basketball rules outside of these stated above will follow normal high school basketball rules.

Clock will run in 2nd half if score is 20 pts. or more under 10 minutes, and 15 pts. or more under 5 minutes.

Tie Breakers in Standings will be determined Head to Head and then by point differential for head to head matchups between the teams in the tie
