Length of Games: first team to score 21 points, or 18 minutes
Overtime: if the score is tied at the end of the 18 minutes, the game will into overtime. A coin flip determines which team has the initial possession. The game winner is the first to score in overtime.
No make it take it: the ball changes possession after each scored basket.
Jump Balls: all jump balls become the possession of the defensive team.
Time Outs: each team is allowed three 30-second time-outs per game. The game clock does not stop during any time-outs. No time-outs are permitted in the last three minutes of the game.
Taking It Back: when in play, the ball must be "taken back" on each change of possession. "Taken it back" means BOTH feet must be behind the two-point arc. Failure to "take it back" is a violation.
Each Individual Violation: Change of possession
Throw In/Resuming Play: the ball must be "checked" after every out of bounds or opposite team score. The ball must be thrown in (not dribbled) in from the check box at the rear of the court. No face guarding the box - stay behind the line.
Free Throws: free throws count as one point. When fouled in the act of shooting, free throws are awarded to the fouled shooter only when the basket was not made (1 for 1 pointer, 2 for 2 pointer). All free throws are dead balls. Regardless of whether the free throw(s) are made, the opposing team checks the ball from the check box.
