  12. The first game of the day will not start before the scheduled game time. This will only apply for the first games of the day.  All teams should be at their desired playing gym 30 minutes before their scheduled playing time.  Some games will be ahead of schedule.
  13. All teams are expected to arrive for games prior to the scheduled start times. Arrival at game time is a forfeit. If any team is knowingly unable to make their scheduled game, they must notify the Tournament Director in advance. In bracket play, if a team cannot advance, the losing team advances as if they had won the previous game. Will have a grace period for Saturday’s first games with Director Approval. Tournament director has final say on all games whether a forfeit will be issued.  (Example if running behind in one gym and the team is schedule to play in another gym.)

  22. PRESSING We are going to implement a rule for the boys & girls 4th grade and lower division only.  There will be no pressing until the last 5 minutes of a half.  You can half-court trap and half court press at any time.  If both coaches agree to press full court from the start then it will be allowed.  Once they agree they cannot change it in the middle of the game.  The ref’s will ask before the game starts.
