2023 Winter League Game Guidelines
Games consist of two, 18-minute periods. The clock is stopped on timeouts and
while shooting free throws. The clock will also stop the last TWO MINUTES of the
2nd half (only if the game is within 15 points). Teams will be given THREE minutes
for half time.
First overtime is ONE MINUTE, regular game rules. NO additional timeouts are
given for overtime. Any remaining timeouts from regulation can be used. If 2OT is
reached, it is sudden death (first team to score ONE point).
Each team has THREE - 30 second timeouts per game. No additional timeouts are
awarded during overtime.
Regular NFHS (high school) rules will be used to administer free throws. On the
7th team foul of each period, players are awarded 1 and 1 free throws. On the 10th
team foul of each period, players are awarded two free throws. Shooting fouls are
enforced normally. FOULS WILL RESET AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH HALF.
