All in-game players will line up, like in the case of a technical foul, each team will shoot a free throw.  This is not a sudden death situation.  If Team-A makes their free throw then Team-B will get to shoot a free throw.  If Team-B misses then Team-A wins.  If both teams make the free throw they will shoot again until someone misses.

  • Warm-up will be 2 minutes for pre-game and 2 minute half time.  If the tournament schedule is running behind it will be at the Tournament Director’s discretion to shorten warm-up times in an effort to get the schedule caught up.

  • If a team is late to a game the clock starts at game time. You play whatever time is left in your game when you arrive.  If the team arrives before half time the tardy team will be assessed a 10 point penalty.  The tardy team forfeits if they have not arrived by the start of the 2nd half.
