**When a team has a 20 PT lead the defense MUST stay inside the three-point line.**

  1. Birth date as of December 31st of registration year determines age group player qualifies for that season.
  2. Running clock until the last 2 minutes of game.  Each team is authorized three full minutes and two half minute timeouts per game.  Overtimes will be three minutes in duration with running clock until last minute.  each team will receive one full timeout per overtime period.  Timeouts do not carry over from regulation game.
  3. Every member of the team has to play equivalent of at least 1 quarter of every game.  5-6 boys and 5-7 girls must play at least 1/2 of every game; substitutions in these games will be at the end of each quarter.  No child will play 4 quarters until every other child has played 3 quarters.
  4. For illegal defenses, the referee will stop play and send the defending team down court (no technical foul).
  5. For Boys age group 7-8 and girls 8-11, free throws will be attempted from behind the regulation free throw line.  Offensive players may not remain in the lane for more than 3 seconds.
  6. Referees in the boys 5-6 and girls 5-7 leagues will use their judgement when calling the game.  The intent is to call the game in a manner that allows a flow of activity and to give all of the children an opportunity to advance the ball towards their basket without excessive calls for violations.
  7. Coaches/parents will refrain from questioning the referees about calls during live game activity.  coaches may request explanation of calls/non-calls during timeouts, between quarters, or at end of a game only and providing the conversation remains civil.
  8. Coaches/parents yelling at the referee’s may warrant the coach receiving a warning or a technical foul for the first offense; a second technical foul on the coach will result in their ejection from the gym.  An offending parent should be asked to be quiet or leave the gym prior to issuing any technical foul(s) to coach.  If ejected, the coach will be suspended for an additional game.
  9. Coaches must control players & parents during games.  Head referee and commissioner will discuss any misconduct with coaches or players and could lead to a suspension.
  10. Coaches are responsible for providing a time-keeper or score-keeper for each game (recommend you appoint a dependable parent-volunteer to do this).  Only head coach, players, and one assistant coach are allowed on bench area.  Coaches must ensure clean-up of bench area after their game.  Coaches must ensure baskets are raised/lowered accordingly prior to their game.  Coaches must post lineups in scorebook prior to game time.
  11. All emergency insurance information will be in the NYSA office.
