1. Two Teams of Five:
The system governing informal full court basketball play begins automatically when the basketball court(s) becomes occupied by two teams of five participants playing full court basketball and there is a team of five participants present and ready for play (gym shoes) who have requested the next game.
2. First Come, First Served:
The first five waiting at the court will automatically have the next game. If less than five are waiting to play, members from the losing team or from another court's losing team or those waiting, may play. When the next game system is operative and a participating team's number of players drops below five, the remaining members may continue to play to the end of the 11-basket game with or without adding members to their team.
3. No Half Court:
No half court basketball if 10 participants are present and indicate they want to play full court.
4. Games to 11 Only:
At the time of the game, the two teams of five participants on the court will begin a game of eleven baskets. The first team to score eleven baskets, by one (e.g.:11-10) is the winner. At the completion of the 11-basket game, the losing team will give up the court and the challenging five will take their place. If, at the end of the game, one or more members of the winning team are unable to continue play, the remaining member(s) of the winning team, to hold the court, must fill their vacancies only from the members of the losing team. If they are unable to fill their vacancies from the members of the losing team, and there are two complete teams of five participants waiting and ready to play in next game order, the first two teams waiting have the right to the court.
5. Three Wins Only:
After a team wins three games in a row they must rotate out. The intent of the system governing informal full court basketball is to promote equal participation. It is hoped that the players will display their maturity in following the rules provided. Violation of the above system/procedures will result in disciplinary action.
