TECHNICAL FOUL: Will results in one free throw and possession, along with the offender sitting foe one substitution rotation. Technical fouls will be called for the following reasons (but not limited to): unedifying trash talk, swearing towards a person, arguing with the ref, fighting (in any form), tripping, throwing elbows, stepping under players foot while in act of shooting, etc. By staff & referee's discretion will be used. Only the captain of each team will be able to "argue" calls with the ref, any comments or motions directed at the ref by players will result in a Technical. If a player receives two technicals they will be thrown out of the game.
FIGHTING: Fighting, both verbal and physical, will not be tolerated. Referees have full authority to kick out players from a game. Upon review, players can be kicked out of the league.
SUBSTITUTION RULE: At 5 min. mark of each half, each team will make mandatory substitution. This is to ensure that all players will get playing time.
TIMEOUT: Each team can also call for one 30 second timeout per game. Substitution can also be made at that time. But please be considerate and not abuse this rule to immediately substitute a player who has not played enough playing time. If a player requests to sub himself out for various reasons (fatigue, injury, etc.), he may request to do so during dead ball by indicating to the referee.
GENERAL BASKETBALL RULES: Travel, carry, over & back, charge, technical, 3 sec. in the paint, 5 sec. to inbound the ball, 10 sec. to bring it to half court, etc., will be applied. It will be good to communicate this among players and refs before the game.
OVERTIME: To replace overtime, we have a shootout to determine the game. Each team will send 5 players and do a free throw shootout. If it is still tied, then it becomes sudden death (you may use any of your players for this). Winning team will get one extra point (i.e. 30-30 will be ended by 31-30).
