 We follow all NCAA Rules with the exception of league specific rules listed below.


  1. Division 3 and 4 are our lowest level where each team is balanced on talent which is evaluated by the commissioner of the league.  Even after your team is approved the team and its players are still subject to changes including point restrictions, limitation to players on the floor, removal of a player or the entire team if necessary to create parity in the league.  There are no refunds for players or teams, the league will not issue any refunds once they have played the first game.  If a player is removed from a team they will be given the option of adding another lesser talented player to their roster but responsible for their full team fee, the league will not issue any refunds.  If your team is not doing well the commissioner will also grant the team an option to add an additional player so everyone has a chance.  If a player or team is found not playing up to their level or we see dramatic performance difference in the beginning of the season compared to later in the season/playoff, the team or player will be disqualified without refund or a chance to continue playing in the playoff games.  You cannot run up the score in D3 if a team is found consistently run up the score a player will be cut from their team with no refund to the player or team.  If you are playing in this league you agree to all these rules and guidelines and understand the risks. Any captain can raise an object to another team or player for the commissioner to review at which point some action will be taken.  You have all signed a waiver of this statement when you first registered for Division 3 and 4. 

  2. 20 min halves with 2 min halftime.  Clock runs in the first half except for the last minute.  Second half clock stops on all free throws. Clock runs if point differential is greater than 20 in second half. Gym coordinator/score keepers can also decide to run the clock and/or cut time from the game due to late start by informing the captains and referees.  All teams should be present at the gym 15 min prior to the game to pay referee fees and fill out stat sheet.

  3. Referee will count 30 sec shot clock in the last 2 minutes of the game. Game clock will stop on made baskets in the last minute of the game.

  4. If a game is a blow out the referee has the ability to call the game early if teams are fouling and/or the winning team is trying to run up the score.  If a team is winning more than 20 points they are not allowed to press the losing team in the second half.

  5. 3 (20 sec) timeouts can be used at any time of the game. If you are out of timeouts and you call a timeout it will be a team technical 2 (shots). 

  6. 2 min overtime with 1 additional timeout in OT, Timeout from regular game can carry over into overtime.

  7. Games are scheduled to start on time you may play with 4 but if you only have 3 players 1 point will be given per min till your 4th man arrives.  If team is more than 15min late the game is considered a forfeit.   Teams can still play each other when they arrive for fun.

  8. Technical foul on all curses including bench players, players fouled out – penalty 2 shots – counts as personal foul.   Can be called by the referee, score table, appointed league committee members (long as it’s not during their game).  All players who are issued a tech must sit out 2 min of game time even if they only have 4 players.   If a team only has 5 players and a player fouls out on the 5th foul.  The player can come back into the game by taking a tech, which is 2 shots for the opposing team or the team can play with 4 guys.  The technical free throws should always be taken first before any foul free throws.  The ball goes back to whoever had possession if they are not shooting free throws. 

  9. Technical foul on all dunks – penalty 2 shots and basket does not count, it will also count as a personal foul.

  10. Extended trash talking will lead to technical foul and ejection.

  11. Two technical fouls are an automatic ejection – player must leave the gym.

  12. Misconduct or fighting will result in ejection – penalty ejection and 2 shots, automatic suspension and player must leave the gym.

  13. All technical fouls will count as personal fouls and the player must sub for 2min game time - cursing, throwing items, punching, kicking, knowing things down even in a time out or while on the bench includes any other misconduct.

  14.  Each player is allowed 5 personal fouls per game. On the 5th foul the player must leave the game, if the team has no subs they can opt to bring the player back into the game by taking a technical foul. 

  15. All players must wear matching jersey with assigned number and SABL logo– penalty 2 Points for each jersey, taped on numbers will not be accepted.  If a player enters the game with the wrong jersey/number and the game is in action he will be penalized with 2 points it does not matter if he puts on the right jersey/number after he enters the game.  The technical foul has already been issued cannot be reversed.   

  16. Any captain can raise an objection to any player or team.  All players should be of Asian/Middle Eastern decent. 1 guest player permitted who must average below 15ppg to qualify for playoff . In the playoff the guest player can be limited to these averages, mean they cannot score more this amount.  There are some exceptions made to these rules, but the captains can object to any of these exceptions and the commissioner will rectify the situation to create an even playing field for everyone.

  17. All roster changes must be completed by the end of week 5.  Any player added after week 5 will result in a forfeit.  Team fees must be completed in full before your first game otherwise you will not be allowed to play.  A team roster will be maxed out at 10 players per team and only players on the roster 24 hours prior are allowed to play on game day.  Cannot register same day and expect to play.  If a player on your team has played at least 1 game and then you ask to have that player cut that cut if final you cannot add him back on.  

  18. Forfeits – When a forfeit is given do to administration issues within the team and the game is played the stats will count and all the players that played will count as has played that game.  Teams that only show up with 3 guys will count as having showed up for their game to qualify for playoff.  Teams that do not show up at all will be listed as DNP.  No show teams will also be required to pay double in referee fees as their opponent was there to play and no game was conducted.  We must have 48hr notice to waive this fee if a team is not able to attend.

  19. One Flagrant Foul and you will be ejected from the game.  All ejection are subject to suspension for future games. 

  20. Rankings and playoff seedings are determined by the follow rules.  Top 4 teams from each division make playoff.  Best overall record, if there is a tie with record the tie is broken with head to head matchup.  If there is still a tie between two or three teams tie is broken by point differential between the teams tied when they played each other.  If there is still a tie then we look at the point differential against the 1st seeded team and so on till we have one winner.  Only 4 teams can make the playoffs. Forfeited teams will lose the head to head matchup regardless of score.
