Game Rules

Games will be two 8-minute halves, with a shot clock (Referee’s will count 5 secs left). Clock doesn’t stop.

Shots taken inside the 3-point line will be worth 1 point, and any shot taken behind the 3-point arc will be worth 2. If there is a foul on the shot inside the 3-point line, the player will have one free-throw shot. If there is a foul on the shot outside the 3-point line, the player will have two free-throw shots.

The And1 rule. If you are fouled during a shot and make the basket, there is no And1. Your team will receive the ball back for another possession.

Whoever wins at the end of regulation gains 3 points. Losing team will only receive 1 point. If teams are tied at the end of the round, it will go down to percentage.

If the games are a draw at the end of regulation, 2 minutes of overtime will be played. Players must be registered prior to the start of the tournament.


Referees will be there on the day so please respect what they say.
