Coaches: Two coaches shall be allowed on the bench during games. Head coach should wear their schools dark color shirt to be identified by officials. Scorekeepers shall only keep the book and not serve as additional coaches. Teams not following this rule shall be assessed a technical foul and the team in violation will lose there right for a scorekeeper. The scorekeeper in violation shall be removed form the bench area to the opposite side of the gym.


Coaches Conduct: Public criticism of officials or players is unethical and will not be tolerated. The coach shall respect and support contest officials.  The coach shall not indulge in conduct which would incite players or spectators against the officials.



Ejections: If a player, coach or spectator is ejected from a contest they will be suspended from the next contest. A second offense shall result in removal from the league for the remainder of the season. The host site is responsible to report this to the league. Officials shall file an incident report to the host site. This shall be completed in 24 hours and turned in to the league director. If a player, coach or spectator is removed from any league tournament or league sponsored tournament the will not be eligible for the remainder of the tournament.


       Continued disregard of rules or disrespectful conduct by a coach or parents could result in removal of team from the league.  Our goal and concept is to teach the children not winning at all or any cost.


Results: Results of all weekly games shall be emailed to your community coordinator so that the weekly standings maybe updated.
