1Overtime: For grades 4-12 (except Girls 9-12 Winter season), 1 3-minute overtime period with a running clock (stopped during free throws) is permitted. Teams would appear to be purposely running out the clock when the ball goes out of bounds will be warned by the officials. During the regular season, if no winner is determined at the end of the overtime period, the game is declared a tie. A running clock is not used in the playoffs, where there are 3-minute overtime periods until a winner is determined.

 

2Participation: For grades 1-8, no player can play 3 quarters unless all other players have completed 2 quarters or are playing in their 2nd quarter and no player can play 4 quarters unless all other players have completed 3 quarters or are playing in their 3rd quarter. For Boys Grades 9-12, each player must sit out one full quarter for teams fielding 7 or more players. Substitutions cannot violate the minimum participation rule. Any substitutions for player injury or disqualification (fouling out) must be from among those on the bench with the least amount of playing time; the playing time counts for the player being substituted for and not for the substitute.

 

The standard participation pattern for Grades 1-8 is as follows. Note that the extra playing time can be shared and does not have to be confined to the number of players specified here as long as all players play the minimum and no player exceeds the maximum.
