- If ball is deflected or thrown into balcony, defense is awarded ball.
Boundaries will be the regulation basketball court lines. Each team will play on their own half court and may not leave that half under any circumstances. You may leave sidelines only to retrieve a ball but not to avoid an incoming ball.
All players must stay above the baseline during play, unless retrieving a ball.
A player may not stand behind the basketball goals, unless retrieving a ball.
No stalling. Stalling will be based on a 5-second count or the referee's discretion.
Once players are eliminated, they cannot touch any ball.
Players may hit the "hot spot" once a game. If a team hits the "hot spot", all of their players may return to the game. The "hot spot" is defined as the rim and the square on the opposing team's backboard.
All decisions by officials are final. Arguing decisions will result in a warning, followed by a technical foul. If a player receives a technical foul, they must sit out the remainder of the game and all of the next game. If a player receives a second technical foul, they will be ejected from the match.
