Second Half Schedule Release
by posted 11/25/2021


Connecticut Basketball Coaches 

 

Our pre-season tournaments have tipped off and Champions are being crowned.  

 

We've released the December schedule so all teams and towns know where they're going over the holidays. 

 

As we're still working to finalize gym access with several member towns we've held back the release of the schedule for the second half of the season for another week or so until those issues are definitively resolved. 

 

Thank you for all your hard work in getting the kids back on the court! 

 

 

See you on the court!

 

Keep rebounding!!

COVID Home Team Rules . . .
by posted 11/22/2021


Connecticut Basketball Community 

 

As League, safety has and will continue to be our highest priority.  To that end, our Club Presidents convened earlier this month to discuss and approve our COVID protocols for the 2021-22 winter season.

 

The highlights and takeways are as follows:

 

  1. COVID requirements vary from town to town.  For example, some towns will have to enforce limits on the number of specatators and parents in their gyme.  Others have to abide by "staging" requirements--which means teams are not permitted to enter the host's facility until after all participants in the prior game have exited the building.
  2. Accordingly, we are not able to post a single set of rules that apply to all games and instead have placed the requirements for each town in the game notifications.  Stated another way, when you receive your game notifications, the requirements for the venue you are visiting will be included.
  3. Please adhere to both the spirit and letter of each requirement as failure to do so jeorpardizes everyone's ability to play this winter--and for our League to offer a full schedule on behalf of our kids and community!

 

Thank you for your engagement on this most important topic!

 

Keep rebounding!!

2021-22 Connecticut Basketball Game Rules

  All games are governed by CIAC high school rules except for the following:

1.      Game Logistics. Each game will be scheduled for 65 to 75 minute time slots. A 3-5 minute warm-up period will be allowed prior to each game. Teams are encouraged to stretch outside the gym before their game, if permitted by your host.

2.      Length of Game/Quarters. The home team—not the referee--controls the length of each quarter but quarters should never be less than 7 minutes and 8 minute quarters are preferred with a clock that stops.  The home team—not the referee—determines the length of quarters. Please note:

·         Halftime shall be limited to 3 minutes (and is otherwise a long time out)

·         The cessation of play in between quarters shall be no longer than 2 minutes.

3.      Ties. There are no ties.

a.       If the score is tied at the end of regulation, two minutes shall be placed on the clock.  The team ahead at the end of the two minutes is the winner.

b.      Overtime will commence with a jump ball. 

c.       There are no timeouts in overtime—just play.

d.      If still tied at the end of the two minutes, place another two minutes on the clock and repeat process until a winner is declared.

4.      Fouls. Team fouls reset at the half as in CIAC play for all divisions.

5.      Foul Shots. 4th Grade Boys, 5th Grade Boys and 5th Grade Girls may shoot fouls 1 foot inside of the foul line (or otherwise cross the line when attempting a foul shot). Referees are encouraged to call only blatant violations on the foul shooter at these ages.

6.      Ball Size.  4th Grade Boys, 5th Grade Boys and all Girls divisions will use a 28.5” ball.

7.      Time-outs.  Each team shall be allotted one full (60 second) timeout and two 30 sec. time-outs per half—that do not carry over.  Either coaches or players may call a time-out.

8.      Mercy Rule. There is a 20-point differential rule is in effect for regular season games.
If there is a 20-point differential at any point in the game, the winning team shall not press.

9.      Referees. Board certified referees must officiate each game.

10.  Player & Coaches Conduct.

a.     If a coach receives a technical foul he/she must stay seated on the bench for the remainder of the game. 

b.     If either a player or coach is ejected from a game, the ejected player or coach shall serve a three-game suspension starting with the next regular season or Connecticut Basketball tournament game. (The Club President representing the offending coach may appeal the suspension with the League.)

11.  Parents Conduct. Any parent who enters the court during the playing of the game—including the stoppage of play—shall, at the referee’s discretion, cause a forfeit of the game.

* A copy of these rules be present at each home site.
