RULES & REGULATIONS

The referee’s decision is final in all matters relating to the game. At no time during the game should a player question a referee. The referee is not obliged to explain his/her decision, this applies to even the team Captain who has no special rights or authority other than over his/her own team.

Use of foul language, fighting or any behaviour deemed inappropriate will result in ejection from the tournament.

Teams score by either regular two-point baskets, or by three-point shots taken from outside the three-point circle.

After a basket has been scored or a foul called, a player must put the ball in play from a line past the three point line above the foul key.

On defensive rebounds or steals, players must return the ball by dribble or pass across the three point line before a basket may be attempted. Once across the line, they do not have to pass the ball before shooting.

After a basket, the team scored upon will put the ball in play.

Fouls will be called by the referee. A foul called in the act of shooting will result in either two or three points being awarded to the team which was fouled, depending on where the player was fouled. A non-shooting foul will result in the award of one point to the offended team.

Substitutions may be made after a basket or an out of bounds play.

Player’s must remove all jewellery before taking the floor.

Teams must have the same colour shirts. The shirts do not have to be numbered. If two teams have the same colour shirts, the referee will issue pinnies.

*All players must be registered, paid and insured before they take the field*
