Please be reminded that these rules are not intended for competition play,

but rather to keep the game equal among all players, coaches, and parents.  

 

Our main goal is to play basketball at a recreational level, so our children

 

can learn the basic skills of the game, develop, and most importantly have

 

FUN.
