Be aware of their own position and that of their partners. (See Mechanics) 2. Communicate with all participants (except the spectators) 3. Keep the game running smoothly: a.

Season Terms to Know READ THEM and KNOW THEM!
Season General Rules of Play Pertaining to All Divisions GAME LENGTH – will be 10 periods of 4 minutes each, straight time. Half time is 2 minutes. In Jr. Mini only the clock will be stopped until the shooter has the ball. For all other levels, in the 10th shift, the clock will be stopped during foul shots only. It is not stop time for the last two minutes of play. TIMEOUTS – each team may call one timeout per half, per game. Timeouts will not be carried over to the second half. Each time out is a timed 50 seconds, the whistle blows, the teams then have 10 seconds to put their players back on the court. TIED GAME – no overtime shall be played with the exception of play offs. The game finishes a tie. FAIR PLAY – is recognized in all divisions. No player shall participate in more than one period in excess of the player participating the least. (Exception through illness, injury, fouling out or arrival after the 3rd period). This is determined at the end of each half (i.e. by the 5ht and 10th period). The referee should work with the scorekeeper throughout the game in order to assure the fair play rule is being followed. Player participation must be recorded in the scorebook.
Season SUBSTITUTIONS – may only be made at the end of a period, except through illness, injury or fouling out. In the instance of substitutions, the period of play will be charged to the player who has played the most minutes of that time period. SCORE BOOK –Individual scores, running score and personal fouls, team fouls, and time outs will be recorded in the scorebook. (Exception is Junior Mini.) In the event of a difference between the posted score and the scorebook, the game shall be stopped when the discrepancy is noticed and the proper adjustments made. In any dispute, the scorebook shall be the official score. STARTING THE GAME – Each game begins with a jump ball at center court between any two opposing players.. Each subsequent shift will begin with possession at center court with direction of play as indicated by the possession arrow. (Exception to the rule, Junior Mini Division.) POSSESSION ARROW – The direction of the arrow goes in favor of the team who did not gain control of the opening jump ball. The arrow will point in the direction of play, toward the basket in which the team is shooting. Each subsequent jump ball or beginning of shift, the arrow will alternate from one team to the other.
Season DEFENCE – All defense played will be man to man. Exceptions apply to full court pressure, which may be in the form of a zone press, then backed into a man to man. Also midget/juveniles may play a zone defence in the first half only. (please see individual division rules as they relate to full court pressure) THREE IN THE KEY – Jr. Mini: this rule will be enforced with the referees giving a few verbal warnings before blowing the whistle. All other levels: This rule will be enforced. FOUL SHOTS AND END OF SHIFT BUZZER: For all house league games, when there is a foul shot(s) and the end of shift buzzer goes off, players must hold their positions until the foul shot(s) have been completed. Once finished, all players can go to their respective benches for shift change. (Reasoning: When, players make a mad dash in the middle of foul shots, which is very disruptive to the shooter. Referees will have to be fairly vocal to ensure players hold their spots.) THE FIVE FOUL RULE is in effect for all divisions except Jr. Mini where the rule is only in effect after Christmas.
Season New Rule Interpretation: The officials will allow the shift to finish as normal in which the 40 point spread was established. The next shift will begin with the score reset to zero and the next fair play shift will come on the floor and continue the game respecting the possession arrow.
Season New Rule
Season New Rule Interpretation: The spirit of this rule is to allow the trailing team over half and into the front court. There is not to be a wall of players formed to prevent the trailing team from getting over half. The officials will vocalize to the leading team to let them go or allow them over half. DO NOT ALLOW A BALL CONTROLED BY THE TRAILING TEAM IN THE BACKCOURT TO STRIPPED FROM THEM WITHOUT A STOPPAGE OF PLAY. Ask for the coaches help. If play is stopped more then 3 times then the coach will given a Technical Foul on the fourth stoppage. This rule is consistent with Basketball New Brunswick Mini Rules.
Season Specific Rules of Play General Discussion »Junior Mini »Mini »Bantam »Midget
Season Floor Mechanics The word mechanics refers to the area of responsibilities that each referee will cover during the game. These areas of responsibilities are clearly defined, and allow the referee to be in the best place with the least possible effort to see what is happening. Four general areas of play are covered: 1) Normal play 2) Free throw 3) Jump ball 4) Throw in NORMAL PLAY The two officials are called the Lead and the Trail. The lead moves ahead of the play, and the trail follows the play. They are always diagonally opposite each other. The trail is always on the left hand side of the court. When the ball changes direction and moves toward the other basket, the official who had been trail now becomes lead. The official who had been lead now follows the play up the court and becomes trail. The imaginary diagonal line between them does not change.
Season Trail and Lead The trail and lead officials can move up and down the court on either side. They only need to be diagonally opposite of each other at all times during play.
Season JUMP BALLS On a jump ball, the trail official will make the toss and will wait until players move away before moving to the normal trail position. The lead official will take a position at the sideline near the scorers table and face the jumpers. Control of the tap determines the direction of the ball. The lead official will move to the proper court position.
Season THE THROW IN The player who is to make the throw-in will be placed between the two officials. The lead official will handle the ball on any throw-in on the sideline to his or her left, as far out as the foul line extended, as well as on the baseline. The trail official will handle all other throw-ins. Remember.... always make eye contact with your partner to make sure s/he is ready for you to administer the ball to commence play.
Season Free Throws During a free throw, the diagonal does not change. The trail official backs out of the way to a normal trail position. The lead bounces the ball to the shooter on the first free throw, and then takes a position on the lane. For the second free throw, the lead gives the ball to the shooter and takes a normal position on the end line.
Season Eye Mechanics The court is divided into six quadrants. The trail watches the ball and players when in quadrants 1,2,3,6. He/she shares box 5 with the lead official. When sharing box 5, the trail watches up high. This means they are responsible for signaling the ball going through the net as well as all other calls. The lead official covers box 4 and must move appropriately to cover this area. When the lead is sharing box 5, he/she watches everything down low, especially looking for body contact. When the ball is in quadrant 1,2,3 6, the lead is responsible for both 4 and 5. Therefore any action going on in the key and off the ball is being monitored by the lead.
