Rancho Bernardo High School, 13010 Paseo Lucido, San Diego, CA 92128

The rules of the tournament are designed to encourage fair competition among participants where
sportsmanship is encouraged and rewarded.
1. Each team must have a minimum of three (3) players (4 players is strongly recommended) on their
roster and registered as a team by the determined entry deadline. Additions and/or changes on roster
will not be permitted after the tournament commences.
2. Before game start, both teams will warm up at game time for five (5) minutes.
3. Only those teams scheduled to play will be allowed to occupy the court at the scheduled time.
4. No dunking allowed (warm up or games). A technical foul will be called if team dunks the ball.
5. Teams must be at the court at their scheduled time, even if the games are “running behind” on the court.
Team will forfeit game five (5) minutes after scheduled time.
6. Player substitutions will be permitted at any dead ball situation. Substitutes must check in with the court
referee before play resumes.
7. Each team is allowed two (2) 30 second time-outs per game.
8. Fans are not allowed to stand behind the basket and coach or comment.
9. The team captain is the sole spokesperson for his/her team. Only team captains may represent the team
in the case of appeals or disagreements. No judgement calls shall be appealed. Once play resumes
after a disagreement or appeal, the decision is considered to be final, a dead issue. When the ball
becomes live, no further appeals will be allowed on the incident.
10. A coin flip before the start of the game will determine who gets the ball first.
11. Game time is 20 minutes. The team with the higher score at the end of 20 minutes wins. Games
tied after 20 minutes will go to a 2 minute OT until game is won.
12. Shots taken from behind the 3 point line, will be rewarded 2 points for a successful attempt. The player
shooting must have both feet behind the line when initiating the attempt. The court referee will signal the
“made” basket.
13. The ball will change possession after scored baskets (i.e. loser outs)
14. Jump ball will be awarded via alternate possession and will be taken to the top of the court past the 3
point line.
15. The ball must be “taken back” to the line (3 point line) on every change of possession. Violation occurs
only if a basket is scored by the team failing to properly “take it back”, and will result in loss of point
scored and possession to the other team.
16. A dead ball will be taken to the top of the court (at half court). The ball must be checked by an opposing
player before it is put into play. The player throwing the ball must stand behind the take-back lines at the
top of the court. A defender on the player throwing the ball in must give the offensive player room to
make the pass. The ball must be passed in to begin play. The inbounds pass needs to be a pass
forward. No circling behind the in-bounder. Infractions result in a do-over. There is no 5 second rule on
the inbounds pass.
17. All fouls and violations will be called by the court referee. Fouls will be played at the top of the court
past 3 point line (including shooting fouls) until the seventh team foul. On the seventh team foul the
player fouled will be awarded one foul shot or two shots if the shot was taken from beyond the 3 point
line. If the foul shot is made, one point is recorded and the ball changes possession. If the shot is missed
the ball is played at the top of the court by the team which was fouled (e.g., free throw shooter who
misses retains possession of the ball). Note: If two shots are awarded, this rule applies to the second
foul shot (e.g. if the second foul shot is missed, the shooter retains possession).
18. If a player is fouled while shooting (after 7 team fouls) and the basket is good, the points are awarded, no
free throws are shot and the ball changes possession.
19. The court referee foul and violation calls are considered final.
20. Flagrant/intentional fouls are not permitted by participants, and will be penalized by the court referee. A
technical foul shot will be awarded to the team fouled. The player fouled will shoot one shot from the free
throw distance following the court referee call. The team fouled also receives the ball at the top of the court
following the free throw, whether the shot is good or not.
21. The judgment decisions of the court referee cannot be changed by a higher authority, so no appeals on
judgment calls will be accepted. Only questions concerning rule interpretation are appealable.
22. All rules and regulation will be strictly enforced and continual misconduct and physically
flagrant/intentional fouling, will result in immediate forfeiture and dismissal from the tournament. The
misconduct is the judgment of the court referee, and/or a member of the tournament committee.
Individual players or entire teams may be eliminated from further participation.
23. Tie Breaker Rule – If after the end of pool play there is a tie between two or more teams, a head-to-head
comparison will be done to determine what team will participate in the playoff rounds. If the head-to head
comparison does not result in a tie breaker, then point differentials (PF-PA) will be calculated for
each team to determine which team(s) will continue to the playoff rounds....
