Holiday Tournament Rules

2022 DYA Holiday Basketball Tournament Official Rules

Unless otherwise noted, all games are played according to National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) rules using a 28.5” ball.

For BOTH the 4th Grade Boys and Girls, we will employ the COBA 4th Grade League Rules which specify the following:
1.    Free throws may be taken from a distance of 12’ away from the basket (as approximated by the referee, no markings will be put on the floors).
2.    No zone defenses.
3.    No trapping by the defense in the half-court situation.  Penalty will be a stoppage of play, a warning and an in-bounds possession granted to the Offense.
4.    No full-court pressing allowed by either team until the last two minutes of the game.  Penalty will be a stoppage of play, a warning and an in-bounds possession awarded to the Offense.
5.    No full-court pressing allowed by the leading team if they are up 15 points or more.  Penalty will be a stoppage of play, a warning and an in-bounds possession awarded to the Offense.

Pool Play (Friday and Saturday)
1.  All preliminary round tournament games (Pool Play - Friday and Saturday games) will use a running clock with twenty (20) minute halves. The only exceptions for clock stoppages will be player injuries, time-outs and the final two (2) minutes of the second half where the clock will stop on all whistled fouls, time-outs, injuries and violations. 
2.  Each team will be allowed two one-minute time-outs per half with no carryover. 
3.  Typically, four minutes will be established for halftime. 
4.  Warm-up and halftime duration may be shortened anytime during the Tournament in order to keep games on schedule at the discretion of the Site Coordinators and the Referees.
5.  Overtime:  In preliminary round games, there is one two-minute running clock overtime period for games tied after regulation.  Each team will receive one time-out during the overtime period.  The clock will stop on all whistled fouls, time-outs, and violations in the final 30 seconds of overtime.  If the game is still tied after one overtime, there will be a one-minute break and a sudden death overtime will be played with the game ending whenever one team has a two (2) point lead.  No time-outs or substitutions will be allowed during the sudden death overtime, except to replace injured or disqualified players.


Tie-breakers for Pool Play
1.  Overall record in the preliminary games, counting only those games played between teams in the same Pool.
2.  Head to Head winner.
3. For three team ties, the highest total cumulative point spread over the three games will determine the order of finish, with a maximum of 13 points differential per game.  For example: If team A beats team B by 19 points, team A is credited with +13 and team B is credited with -13.  Only games played between teams in the same pool will be counted.  Teams will be ranked first, second, third.  Note: If there is a two-way tie for point differential for first among the teams tied with the top pool record, then the head to head winner of those two is ranked first and the head to head loser is ranked second.  If there is a two-way tie for point differential for second among the teams tied with the top pool record, the head to head winner is ranked second.  If there is a three way tie (all three teams have a net zero), continue to step 4.
4. Fewest total cumulative points allowed over the three games, including only those games played between teams in the same pool.  Teams will be ranked first, second, third.  Note: If there is a two-way tie for points allowed for first among the teams tied with the top pool record, then the head to head winner of those two is ranked first and the head to head loser is ranked second.  If there is a two-way tie for points allowed for second among the teams tied with the top pool record, the head to head winner is ranked second.  If there is a three way tie (all three teams have the same points allowed), continue to step 5.
5.  Coin flip.

Note:  Please be available by phone and e-mail on Saturday night after 9:00 pm if you are in contention for Sunday play.  Any team the Tournament Directors are unable to contact will not advance to Sunday's championship rounds.  (For this year, this only applies to the 6th grade boys – everyone else has been scheduled)


Championship Sunday (including championship, semi-final, and third place games)
1.  All championship, semi-final, and third place games (called championship round games) will consist of four six (6) minute quarters with a stopped clock for all whistles. 
2.  In championship round (Sunday) games one minute will be allowed between quarters and six minutes for halftime. 
3.  Warm-up and halftime duration may be shortened anytime during the tournament in order to keep games on schedule.
4.  For championship round (Sunday) games, if the game is tied after regulation, there will be a one (1), three minute overtime with one time-out per team in each overtime; if still tied, a second three minute overtime will be played with one additional time-out given to each team; if still tied, the game will go to sudden death with the first team to lead by two (2) points declared the winner.
