Please make sure athletes and parents know they WILL NOT be returning to the locker rooms after the game because the next team will already be in there so they must take all belongings with them.

At this age, most kids are playing basketball for the very first time. Therefore rules and calling fouls is pretty much non-existent. 

 

There is NO stealing off the dribble. Players can steal off the pass.

 

To block a shot 2 feet must be on the ground and the player's hands up. There is no jumping up to swat a shot.

There is no double-teaming. Each player must remain guarding their assigned player. 

 

Traveling & Double Dribbling

Reminders to dribble the ball. Traveling is not called at this age.

 

Out of bounds

If the ball goes out of bounds please make sure the ball is taken back out and passed back in. Coaches can regulate when turnovers are necessary versus just a simple mistake that can go back to the player.
