Tournament Rules:

General Rules:

  • Any inappropriate behavior will result in an automatic suspension of the player or players involved. Swearing, fighting, or malicious contact are some examples.  The referee/mediator is the final authority.
  • The designated team captain is the only team member allowed to approach the referee/mediator regarding disputes and/or questions.
  • Hanging on the rim is not allowed. Hanging on the rim will result in loss of point.
  • A coin toss determines the first possession.
  • One 30-second timeout per team is allowed. The clock will only stop during the last two minutes for free throws and timeouts.
  • Substitutions are allowed at dead ball only.
  • Taking the ball back: After every change of possession, the offense must take the ball back behind the 3-point line. Air-balls, steals, etc. are all included.
  • Applies to Small Gym only: The structure for the overhead running track is out-of-bounds. It should be treated as such and would cause a change of possession.



  • The sixth team foul and after results in one free throw. If the shot is missed, regardless of rim contact, you maintain possession of the ball. If you make the shot, possession alternates.
  • Age 19 & Over teams call their own fouls. Court mediators will settle disputes and reserves the right to call fouls, if deemed necessary.
  • The referee will call the game for teams 18 and under.



  • 15 points or 15 minutes determine the winner of the game.
  • One point awarded for each basket.
  • Two points for each 3-point basket.
  • If there is a tie at the end of 15 minutes, 3 members from each team will each shoot one free throw to determine the winner (repeat if necessary).



  • Take ball to the 3-point line.
  • Regular boundaries, half court is out-of-bounds.
