How the League will run


To be able to play 3 games within a 2 hour slot the clock needs to keep running. Games will run on a schedule and each team will have 5 minutes to warm up.


Whichever team is not playing will act as referee and score keepers for the others, we need cooperation from all to make sure this remains accurate and fair for all.

We understand some are inexperienced and no one is expected to be a perfect referee so would appreciate a general level of forgiveness for people acting in these roles when mistakes are made.

For each game we will need:

2 X Referee

1 X Score Keeper

1 X Tracking Fouls


The clock will not stop for fouls.

Each team will be allowed 4 Team Fouls. After the 4th foul each shooting foul will be an automatic +1 Point.

If the basket is good, there will be +1 to the basket. If the shot misses it will be +1 & possession.


In an effort to keep to the schedule, games will run in 15 minute long halves instead of quarters.

Rolling Subs: Players can sub players on and off at will.

Fouls & Out of bounds: Clock will keep running.

We have 7:30pm – 9:30pm and while time can be a little tight to fit 3 games it has worked.

  • Game 1 - 7:40
  • Game 2 - 8:15
  • Game 3 - 8:50


Everyone has paid to play and while the games will be competitive. We expect each team to give all players a fair amount of game time. If this isn’t the case please speak up and we’ll sort it.

Each team can arrange substitutions as and when during play.


Teams will be picked at random after registration. A small attempt to balance them may be needed to make sure the league can be as competitive and fair as possible.

Team names will be used this year instead of colors for absolutely no reason at all.  Most popular names will be used.
