League Rules U11

Game Play and Rules Players will play 4 on 4 cross court games. There will be 2 games going on between the opposing teams at the same time. Please divide the gym with player benches down the middle to define the 2 courts. Coaches can decide how they want to split their team to play the 2 games - girls vs girls or boys vs boys or coed games split randomly or by skill level. Coaches can decide if they want to switch the sides halfway through the game time or keep the sides set for the entire time.


● Game time - how much time per half etc. - can be determined by the coaches running the bench and communicated to the U17 Jr. Officials. This means coaches can call timeouts to ensure players get rest when it is required.

● There are no score clocks in the U11 gyms so coaches will have to watch the time for shifts and games.

● Score will not be kept at U11 games.

● No full court press at U11.

● RDMBA teams will play their players as close to equal as possible.

● Jr. Officials have been scheduled for U11 games - please remember that these kids are learning to officiate and doing their best. Players, parents, and coaches must demonstrate respect and tolerance of their calls.

● Player development is our main focus at U11 - many players will be playing for the first time and will need lots of guidance and teaching of the rules during the games.

● Hoops will be placed at 9', if hoops are not marked, use best judgement.
