  • Games are played to 21 points or 10 minutes stopped time clock and a 12-second shot clock.
  • A coin toss will determine the possession of each game.  The coin toss winner will decide to begin the game with possession of the ball or in a potential overtime.  
  • Shots made inside the arc are worth 1 point, and attempts made outside the arc are worth 2 points.  All made FT are 1 point.
  • All violations, out of bounds and non-shooting fouls will result in the ball being ‘checked’ at the top of the arc by the opposing team.
  • The ball needs to be ‘cleared’ past the 2-point arc on every change of possession, including made baskets.  
  • A penalty of 2 free throws will be awarded at the 7, 8, and 9 team foul, and two free throws and possession of the ball will occur on the 10th and subsequent team foul per game.
