The Goals and Rules are as follows:

The primary goals of the Saint John's Basketball program are:
1. To develop children's basketball skills,
2. To teach sportsmanship and respect for the coaches, players and referees,
3. To have fun,
4. Competition is secondary.

All games are made up of four 9-minute quarters. Play is stopped every three minutes for players to alternate.

Time spent playing is to be divided equally among all players, regardless of ability.

No player is permitted to play consecutive 3-minute periods.

No player should play more than 5 shifts and only 4 shifts with 15 players.

Jump balls are at the beginning of a game and in overtime, alternate possessions for remaining quarters.

Five time outs per game, no more than three per half.

Each overtime is three minutes in length, with two time outs per team per overtime.

Only man to man defense, no zone defense is permitted. Players will be warned two times that they are not playing proper defense, the third offense will draw a technical foul.

Seven team fouls per half allowed, team shoots one and one up to ten fouls, two shots after ten fouls. Players are permitted five fouls. Flagrant fouls (shoving, high swinging elbows, excessive physical contact) will result in two free throws for the fouled team and removal of the fouling player for the game.

Teams are permitted to PRESS in two situations: ~ When a team is 10 points down, they may press and may continue to press until the 10 points are reduced to 2. ~ Teams are also permitted to press during the last minute of each half regardless of score.
