LIVE BALL/DEAD BALL POSSESSION
A coin flip will be used to determine which team will begin with the ball at mid-court. Games will be played using a “winner’s out” or “make it take it” format, in which following a made basket, possession will remain the same. Following all made baskets the ball must be checked in at the mid-court line. The offensive player must pass the ball into play. All fouls and violations will be played out of bounds at the top of the court. Out of bounds balls will be played from the mid-court line and must be checked in as well. Following a missed basket or steal that results in a change of possession, the ball must always be taken back beyond the 3 point (takeback) line. Violations will only be called should the offending team score a basket. Should the violating team score a basket, the point will be removed from the scoreboard and a change of possession will take place at mid-court.
Player substitution may take place on all dead ball situations.
FOULS AND VIOLATIONS
All player fouls and violations will be the sole responsibility of the offended player. Only the person fouled may call the foul. After foul is called, the ball is returned to the offensive team at mid-court.
