2018 Summer League Rules

1 – Timing:

Mini League – All games will be played in 10 minute halves, clock will stop in the last two minutes of each half.

Intermediate League – All games will be played in 15 minute halves, clock will stop in the last two minutes of each half. On the final week, games will be 10 minutes halves, due to the additional play-off games needing to be played.

Senior League – All games will be played in 7 minute quarters with a stopping clock assuming we are running on time. Although timings will depend upon number of players available.

2 – Substitutions:

Substitutions will be of the running kind… Players have to ‘high-five’ off the court before substituting. No advantage may be gained by the timing of the substitution.

If running to time Senior League subs will follow normal rules.

Mini League play will be 4 on 4.

3 – Foul shots:

Will always only be single shots, worth the respective amount of points. E.g. a foul on a three point shooter will result in one shot worth three points.

4 – Fouls:

Each player may have a maximum of four individuals fouls in the Mini League and five in the Intermediate and Senior league.

Mini League teams will be allowed four team fouls per half before being in the penalty.

Intermediate League teams will be allowed seven team fouls per half before being in the penalty.

Senior League teams will be allowed four team fouls per half before being in the penalty.

5 – Timing

It is really important that you arrive on time to start your matches. We cannot afford to start late with 15 matches to fit in every week.

6 – Defence:

Man-to-man defence is the only defence that can be played.  Teams may press but this is at the coaches discretion.

7 – Timeouts:

Coaches will have one time-out in each half in the Mini League, and two in each half in the Intermediate and Senior League.

8 – League Tables:

There will be 5 points awarded for a win, 3 for a draw and 1 for a loss.  Points difference will decide tied places if needed as draws are allowed.

9 – Other:

Other rules not specified will be normal basketball rules.

Rules will be flexible as to ensure that the players get the best experience possible.
