  2. Players may play on only 1 team within a tournament age group but on no more than two teams per event. A player’s eligibility will be based on & verified by a current report card, if requested. Players may play “up” in an older age group. This means that an eligible player in the 5th grade division may play up in the 6th grade division, but may NOT play on two 5th or two 6th grade teams during the same event.
  3. Regulation High School Activities Association rules will be followed with the following exceptions:
    1. 18-minute running clock with a 2 minute half time. If a team is ahead by 20 points or more, the clock will continue to run until the point differential is back to <12 then the clock will stop in the last 2-minutes of the 2nd half only.
    2. In addition, the clock will not stop on all technical fouls.
    3. Teams with a 20+ point lead are not allowed to press over half-court.
      1. The first violation will be a warning. The second & all subsequent violations will result in a technical foul being assessed to the bench if the officials deem it intentional.
    4. 3-minute warm-up & 2-minute half time unless the Tournament Director / Gym Monitor deem it necessary to shorten these times to get the tournament back on schedule.
    5. Game time is forfeit time. Games may start early to keep tournament on schedule if both coaches agree.

    7. Three time-outs per game. One full and two 30-second time-outs. Time outs are not carried over to any overtime period(s).
    8. Referee may stop the game clock within reason. Intentionally wasting time to shorten the game can be punished by a technical foul. This does not mean a team cannot use a delay offense at anytime they choose
  4. Tiebreaker procedure:
    1. If there is a 2-way tie based on wins-losses, then head-to-head results will be used.
    2. If there is a 3-way tie based on wins-losses, then a point differential system will be used based on cumulative margin of victory for all games played will be used (15-points per game is maximum).
    3. If there is a 3-way tie based on wins-losses and also a subsequent 2-way tie based on the point differential system above, then head-to-head between the 2 teams will be used to determine which team gets the higher position.
  5. Overtimes will be 2 minutes in length. The clock stops on all dead balls during an overtime. Double overtime will be sudden death.
    1. Teams will receive 1 full time-out per overtime.
  6. The roster you list on the Official games scorebook / score sheet for your FIRST game of each tournament is your roster for the weekend. Make sure to include on this first roster any player who for any reason is not playing the first game, but intends to play following games.
  7. The HOME (First team listed on the schedule) team will provide the bookkeeper as well as the game ball.  The VISITOR will provide the clock operator.  Teams may switch responsibilities at the HOME team’s discretion.

    1. NOTE: Coaches will be held accountable for the behavior of their team’s parents.  If parent’s behavior is out-of-line as determined by the Tournament Director and/or Gym Monitor and/or Officials, that team may be disqualified from the remainder of the tournament.  No refunds (tour fees, entry fees, etc.) will be issued for a team that is disqualified.
