Fouls & On-Court Conduct

Technical Foul Penalty – Automatic 2 points & possession to offended team

A team will shoot 2 free throws once 10 team fouls have been accumulated. There is NO single bonus (1 & 1).

Fighting will result in immediate removal from tournament without refund and potential disqualification of the team.

No Stalling – Teams may not hold the ball without attempting to score for more than 30 seconds. The first instance will result in loss of possession. Each subsequent instance will be a team technical foul.

If a player is ejected from a tournament game, they are suspended for their team’s next game (this does not apply if a player fouls out).

If a coach is ejected from a game by the officials, he/she must immediately leave the playing area. If the coach complies with the officials & tournament staff promptly, he/she will be allowed to coach the next game – if a coach is uncooperative, he/she may not be allowed to coach for the duration of the tournament.

Team & Spectator Responsibilities

The tournament will provide clock/bookkeeper(s) & a team may provide 1 parent or coach to assist the officials by keeping the official clock or book. This person must refrain from showing partiality, coaching players on the floor, or commenting on calls made by officials.

Spectators are encouraged to actively cheer their teams, but are not permitted to disparage opposing players or coaches, nor heckle the officials.

Spectators may not come onto the court unless beckoned by the officials to tend to an injured player during a dead ball. Any non-player who enters the playing area during a game will be removed from the tournament without refund.

All individuals are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the tournament’s Code of Conduct.

Any party exhibiting behavior inconsistent with the Code of Conduct may be subject to immediate removal from the tournament without refund. Such actions would include: Use of profanity, threatening or violent action, failure to comply with staff or security instructions, or any other behaviors deemed to be sufficiently inappropriate as to merit removal from the tournament by either the site director or tournament director.

Home/Away

The home team is listed first/top on the bracket/schedule. The designated home team should wear white or lighter colored jerseys and provide the official game ball.

Player Protest

Only the head coach may initiate a protest.

The protest fee is $50 and must occur prior to the start of the game or no later than 15 minutes after the game.  The player being protested must produce documents confirming the players age & grade (Ex. a birth certificate & current report card). If the protest is lost or no documentation is produced in a timely manner, the player is ineligible to compete in the tournament. If the player’s age and grade are both validated, the $50 is forfeit and the player shall be eligible.

Basketball Size Regulation

 All Girls Divisions or 6th Grade Boys & Below – 28.5 Ball

7th Grade Boys & Above – 29.5 Ball

Tiebreak Procedures

If 2 teams are tied in the standings, the team who won the head-to-head matchup wins the tiebreaker.

If 3 or more teams are tied, the aggregate point differential, or positive points, from all tournament games will be used to determine all 3 teams’ final standing.

Example

Team A +3, -8, +15 Total + 10

Team B -5, +9, +1 Total + 5

Team C +15, +15, -1 Total + 29

1st – Team C

2nd – Team A

3rd – Team B

Positive points are awarded based on the final score of tournament games. Teams can accumulate a maximum of 15 positive or negative points per game. Games won by forfeit will result in 1 positive point.

Grade & Age Regulations

Players are only eligible to play in their grade division or higher.

Players cannot play in a lower grade division regardless of age.

In addition to being in the appropriate grade, players cannot be too old. Players are required to be the typical corresponding age of their grade level (i.e. 8th Grade – 14 years old)

Players are allowed to be up to 1 year older than the typical age, but cannot turn 2 years older before Sept 1st of the current year.

Example

5th Grade Division – Typical age: 11 Years Old

Player A

5th Grade, 12 years old, turns 13 on December 5th

Verdict: Eligible to play in 5th grade (Will be age 12 on Sept 1)

Player B

5th Grade, 12 years old, turns 13 on July 31st

Verdict: NOT Eligible to play in 5th grade (Will be age 13 prior to Sept 1)

 Coaches may apply for a grade exception in advance of the tournament for players who have been accelerated in school due to academic excellence.

*Grade Exceptions are only granted for players that are the typical age of the lower grade as of Aug 31 of the current year.

If a grade exception is not granted by the tournament director prior to the event – any player in a higher grade than the division they are playing in will be ineligible.
