LENGTH OF GAMES- All games will begin on the hour. Each game will be composed of two 20-minute, running-clock halves. All halftimes will be 3 minutes long. The clock will stop on any stoppage of play DURING THE LAST TWO MINUTES OF EACH HALF ONLY. All overtimes will be decided by a 2-minute overtime period. During this time, the clock will stop for all fouls and timeouts ONLY. IF still tied after overtime: age groups below 13 will be decided by a free throw competition; age groups above 13 will be decided by a three-point shoot-out.

OVERTIME – Free-Throw/Three-Point SHOOTOUT – Visiting team on the scoreboard will select a shooter he will go to the free-throw or three-point line and take one shot.  Make or miss, the home team on the scoreboard will go to the free-throw or three-point line and take a shot.  If both teams make or both teams miss the free throw or three-point shot, the shootout will go to the next round with the home team shooting first.  If one team makes the free throw or three-point shot and the other one misses, the game is over. 

TIMEOUTS AND FREE THROWS- Each team will be allowed two timeouts per game. Shooting fouls will result in one free throw worth two points. If the player is shooting a three-point shot, there will be one free throw for three points. On the seventh team foul, teams will shoot one free throw for two points.  Personal fouls will not be kept.  All technical, flagrant, and intentional fouls will result in one free throw for two points. In the last minute of each game, regular MHSAA rules apply.

Note: Any technical, flagrant, or intentional fouls CAN result in the dismissal of the player from the tournament if it is deemed to be malicious.

  • No fighting of any sort will be permitted! A thrown punch, shoving, swearing, or any other act that is considered an element of a fight WILL lead to an AUTOMATIC dismissal of the athletes involved. This behavior will not be tolerated.
