2023/2024 Season Helpful Information

In house rules and playing time charts are strictly enforced

In house game rules

in-house playing time chart

3/4 grade = 8 min running clock
5/6 and 7/8 grade  = 10 min running clock

Clock only stops on whistles, FT & TO during last 1 minute of 4th qtr
No subs except last 2 minutes of 4th if everyone has played entire 2 quarter (see playing time chart under coaches corner on website) if you have 10 players there cannot be subs per that chart
2 minute pre-game warmup
1 min break between quarters
2 minute halftime break
1-30 second and 1 -45 sec timeouts per half with no carryover
OT will be 2 minute running clock
2nd OT is sudden death

HS 10 min running clock
All the same rules above except they will sub at the five minute mark but the clock will NOT stop running as they make their substitutions. 

WE NEED to pay close attention to the two minute pregame warm-up, one minute between quarters and two minute halftime break as well as making sure timeouts only last 30 or 45 seconds this should keep the games flowing as I think sometimes we drag the quarter breaks, timeouts and warm-ups out longer than they should be.   Have the coaches get there players ready on the bench before quarter ends so they are ready to go in.  We CANNOT linger after game - coaches need to spray player bleachers, scorers table, and door handles after each game

Travel will follow all ICBA rules

Zero Tolerance Rule

General Rules:

Practice and tryout times will be strictly enforced so please remember

End time MEANS OUT OF SCHOOL BUILDING, not hanging out in the hallways - please stress to parents and siblings

If your practice is to end at 7:15 please be respectful of the next team starting at 7:15 and move your kids off the court.  If you need to talk, do it quietly but remember you need to be out of the building at the correct time.  Vice Versa - if your practice is to start at 7:15 DO NOT have your kids dribbling on the sideline at 7PM.  Tell your parents - NO Siblings should be dribbling either - you have the balls - NO ONE should be bringing their own balls to practice or games

Calvary Pres. -   In at 6:30p.m, not before, out by 9:30p.m not after on weeknights.
Before leaving the gym after the last game or practice, it is the responsibility of the coaches to :
o   Put all chairs and the scoreboard/clock away.
o   Clean up the trash
o   Check the entire facility (gym, restrooms, and any adjoining rooms to make sure that no one is remaining in the facility.
o   Check all doors (including the emergency exits) to make sure they are secure.
o   Please turn out the lights (gym and entrance).

2020-21 Covid-19 protocols

I will need your child's Covid Clearance PLUS yours and your assistance coach's Covid clearance prior to your first tryout.  You may want to print a couple out in case parents do not bring it

As mentioned - I am tracking here 

As you can see - not many have turned one in.   Please check right before your tryout and collect any that have not turned it in prior to allowing them to participate.  If at middle school you can drop off on way home on my front porch under mat
if outdoors - drop off at earliest convenience so I can get them tracked
The last thing we need is someone reporting us for not following Montco BOH guidelines.

If indoors - 
NO parents permitted in so we stay under 25 capacity
coaches wear masks 
spray just the bleachers you use - let air dry
spray bathroom sink, urinals and toilets - let air dry
spray your balls if you want - let air dry
spray door handles if you want - let air dry
the stuff is $50 a bottle so don't start spraying the floor LOL

if outdoors
try to keep parents socially distanced
if close contact instruction - coaches wear mask

Notice your start and end times -   Do NOT enter until previous team exits and coach exits which indicates they have sprayed (we can get in at 5:30)
I left 10 minutes in between to allow for spraying - coaches please respect that end time and spray and exit so next team can enter and start on time
Spraying should not be more than a 5 minute job

Please contact your league director!
