- OVERTIME, if the score is tied at the end of regulation time, an overtime period will start with a jump ball at centre court.  The team to score 3 points first will win the game, whether by 3 point field goal, multiple 2 point field goals, multiple free throws or a combination of a 2 point field goal and a free throw.

- FINALS OVERTIME, in a finals/championship game, if the score is tied at the end of regulation time, a 2 minute STOP TIME overtime period will start with the the possession going to the team directed by the possession (jump ball) arrow.


- FALL BACK RULE, full court press is allowed in every division, in the "Youth Conference", 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, once point difference is 20 points and greater, half court defence only will be allowed.


- MATCHING TOPS, just as long the colour of the top is the same colour/shade and same team name on the front, no jersey technical will be given.

- UNIFORM TECHNICAL, 1x free throw is awarded to the opponent for every player violating the matching top rule. Violation occurs when a player does not have a matching top (colour & shade), does not have a number on the back, has a duplicate number as a teammate, no team name or team name on front does not match.

- Free throw(s) will be awarded at the beginning of the second half, if the second half has started the free throw will be awarded when the violating player subs in the game.

- PD will also determine seeding in cases where seeding is applicable.

- POINTS ALLOWED, if by chance that the "PD" between teams are identical, "PA" will be the next category that will determine the tie breaker.  The team with the minimal accumulated points allowed in the round robin will win the tie breaker.


- A player must play at least 1 round robin game to qualify to play in any playoff game.  Wild card games are considered as playoff round.
