  • All players must play at least one continuous quarter. The only exception occurs when there is an unequal number of players between the two teams.  In this case, the number of players that must play one continuous quarter for both teams equals the number of players on the team with the fewest players.
  • Each quarter will be 6 minutes. Overtime periods, if required, will be 3 minutes.
  • Each team will be permitted four 45-second time-outs. One additional time-out will be given for each overtime period. Any unused time-outs can be carried over to the overtime(s).
  • Halftime will be 5 minutes.
  • In the 5th / 6th grade girls and 5th grade boys divisions, free throws will be attempted 12 feet from the basket instead of the regulation 15 feet. In these divisions, the bottom boxes of the key will be filled when shooting free throws.
  • Players may step in on the release of the foul shot in ALL divisions.
  • Bonus situation begins with the 7th team foul in which the team will shoot “one and one”.  The “double bonus” will begin on the 10th team foul.
  • New York State Boys High School basketball 10-second backcourt rules will be used
  • New York State Boys High School basketball free throw rules will be used.
