Rules

  • All games will consist of two 20 minute halves.
  • All games will be running clock unless game is within 15 points in the final two minutes of the game in which a stop clock will be used.
  • Teams are in double bonus free throws when the other team reaches ten team fouls for the half. There is no single bonus.
  • Each team receives three full timeouts per game and one additional timeout per overtime. Unused timeouts do not carry into overtime periods.
  • Individual players foul out if they receive five personal fouls.
  • Each game will have a minimum of five minutes of warm-up time and halftime will be three minutes.
  • Overtime periods will be two minute stop clock time and will continue for as many overtimes as necessary.
  • The home team is responsible for providing the game ball.
  • The home team must wear light colored uniform tops and the away team must wear dark colored uniform tops.
  • Only one coach is allowed to stand at a time per team and must stay in the designated coaching box.
  • Any team who does not have five players by the start of the game will be given a grace period of ten minutes before the game starts. After ten minutes from the scheduled start of the game, the team can play with four players if they choose to do so. If they have less than four players, they forfeit.
  • In youth divisions, players may enter the lane on free throws when the ball touches the rim. In high school divisions, players may enter the lane when the ball is released out of the shooter"s hand.
  • Game officials have the authority to eject players and coaches for poor sportsmanship at their discretion. All ejections are reviewed by the referee assignor and tournament director.
  • The game is not officially over until both teams and their respective coaches have left the court and their benches. Players, coaches and spectators are responsible for their post game actions.
  • Players are not allowed to play for multiple teams at the same grade / age level, regardless of whether they are playing in different divisions (gold, silver, bronze, etc). Players may play for multiple teams only if they are not in the same grade / age level. For instance, if a 7th grade / 13U player is on a "gold" division team, he may not play for a 7th grade / 13U "silver" division team. He may, however, play for a 6th grade / 12U team in any division if he is playing up in the 7th grade / 13U division and meets the eligibility criteria to play in the 6th grade / 12U division.
  • All coaches must check-in at the designated location and receive a wristband in order to sit on the bench. Only two coaches are allowed per team. A program director may take the place of an assistant coach with prior approval.
  • All teams must be certified one hour prior to their first game at the designated team check-in.
  • All players must be on the roster at the team certification before their first game. Players cannot be added after the team is certified. If a player is going to miss the team"s first game, he still must be listed on the roster and certified with the proper paperwork.
  • Teams must present a hard copy report card for each player. If a player is seeking an age exception, a hard copy birth certificate must be present. To receive an age exception, a player must be a year younger than the division age as of September 1st. For instance, in the 6th Grade / 12U Division, a player would have to be eleven years old as of August 31st in order to be eligible to play in the 6th Grade/12U Division.
  • A player must play in at least one game in pool play to be eligible to play with a team in the playoff / bracket round of the tournament. No players can be added to a team, even if they are on the original roster, if they do not play in any pool play games.
  • If a team does not follow the certification process they may be removed from the tournament without a refund.
  • An opposing coach can submit a challenge of a player"s grade, or age exception, with a $50.00 deposit, within ten minutes from the end of the game in question.
  • All boys divisions 6th Grade / 12U and up will use the full size 29.5 regulation basketball.
  • All girls divisions, and boys divisions in 5th Grade and below will use the 28.5 size basketball.
  • Coaches are responsible for controlling team spectators and fans. Referees and tournament officials have the authority to ask a player to leave for unsportsmanlike conduct. Teams can receive technical fouls for the actions of their coaches, players and spectators.
  • If a coach, player or spectator is ejected from the game, the tournament director reserves the right to be able to suspend the ejected coach, player or spectator for one game. The suspended coach, player or spectator may not be allowed on the property for the game in which they are suspended.
  • In the event of a two-way tie in pool play, the tie will be determined by the head-to-head outcome between the teams.
  • In the event of a three-way tie, the tie will be determined by point differential with a maximum +/- of 15 points in any one game and only games against teams involved in the tie will be factored in. If there is a tie in point margin differential between two teams within the three-way tie, head-to-head will be used to determine which of the two teams advances. In the event that point differential does not break the tie between any of the teams (three or more teams), the tie between these remaining teams only will be determined by least points allowed against all of the teams involved in the tie.
  • For any game that results in a forfeit, the score will be 15 – 0. The winning team receives a +15 and the losing team receives a -15.
  • All players must have a different number or a technical foul will be called if it is noticed by a referee.
  • All other rules, not specifically mentioned herein, will be in accordance with CIF high school basketball rules.

Officiating

Chris Balasinki, owner of Gray Fox Officiating, is the exclusive referee assigner for any Open Gym basketball league or tournament. Chris began his officiating career with the Orange County High School Association in 2007 and was promoted to a full varsity schedule in his second season. In the summer of 2009, he was hired to work college games for the NAIA and local NCAA Division 3 conferences. He is also active on the pro-am circuit, working games for the JBL, Drew League, Venice Beach and the American Basketball Association. In 2012, after a solid run at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Chris was hired to the NBA Developmental League, where he will continue pursuing his dream of reaching the pros.

There are only two types of officials that Chris recruits onto his staff - those among the college ranks, already working top level basketball, and those aspiring to get there. His crews feature a balance of talent and experience, with every member expected to demonstrate a professional work ethic, astute judgement, and a devotion to the principles of sportsmanship and fair play.

Questions or feedback concerning the officiating at Open Gym can be directed to his email. Coaches and parents are also encouraged to send in video footage of close calls or atypical situations for a rules interpretation and for potential use as a teaching tool at future Open Gym referee camps and clinics.
