As long as you have reestablished yourself as inbounds, or in other words nothing is touching out of bounds, than you may be legally be in possession of the basketball.

Court and Equipment The court is a rectangle which can vary slightly in dimensions. Generally 94 feet in length and 50 feet in width.

The baskets are located on a backboard at each end of the basketball court and are elevated 10 feet above the ground. The distance of the three-point line varies depending on the level of basketball being played. The charge circle is a semi-circle surrounding the hoop at a distance of 4 feet.

No charges can be taken within this area.

Each hoop is a perfect circle inches in diameter. Basketballs come in a variety of sizes to make playing easier for different ages. Two Halves — A game consisting of two halves will usually be 15 — 20 minutes in duration for each half. Four Quarters — A game consisting of four quarters will usually be 8 — 12 minutes in duration each quarter. Half-time can last anywhere from 3 minutes — 15 minutes depending on the age group and level the teams are playing at. Shorter time for younger age groups, longer time for professional level teams.

The clock will stop on all dead ball situations in the final 1 minute of the first half and final 2 minutes of the second half. The clock will stop for the duration of all timeouts. Overtime At the end of regulation, if the scores are tied, there will be an overtime period of 3 — 5 minutes. After this time, if the score is still tied, the teams will compete for another overtime period.

This continues until at the conclusion of an overtime a winner has been decided. Each team is allowed one timeout during overtime. The fouls from the 2nd half of the game carry over to the overtime periods. Scoring Rules Each free-throw is worth one point.

Each field goal midrange shot, layup, post move, etc is worth two points.

Each shot made from behind the three-point line is worth three points. Substitutions A substitution is when you swap a player from the bench with a player on the basketball court. This is used to allow players to rest and recover throughout the game as well as give all players on the team a chance to participate.

A coach is allowed to make an unlimited amount of substitutions throughout the game. A coach is allowed to substitute their players on and off the court on any dead-ball situation after fouls, violations, timeouts, free-throws, etc.

Do not substitute players without waiting for the referee to signal for you to do so or it will result in a technical foul on your team. A quick reminder that BFC recommends even playing time at all ages up until the high school level. Timeouts A timeout is a stoppage in play that allows the coach to talk to the players and allows the players to rest and hydrate. For a list of reasons why a coach should call a timeout click here. Each team is allowed to call two timeouts per half these cannot be carried over from the first half to the second half.

The duration of a single timeout is one minute.

During a timeout, the coach can make substitutions. Personal Fouls Although regarded as a non-contact sport, everyone who has participated in or watched basketball knows that is not the case. So — what differentiates legal contact from plays where a foul is called? Here are the 6 most common personal foul types: Reaching In Occurs when a defender reaches in to steal the basketball and makes illegal contact with their opponent. Charging A charging foul is called when a defensive player has established position and an offensive player runs into them.

This can happen with or without the basketball. Pushing A pushing foul is called when a player extends their arms forcefully to move an opponent on the court. Illegal Screen An illegal screen is called when an offensive player who is setting a screen on a defender has not established position when the opposition makes contact with them.

Penalties for Fouling If a foul is whistled while an opponent is in the motion of shooting the basketball, the offensive player will receive free-throws. If a shot attempted while being fouled is successful, the points for that shot count and they will be rewarded with only 1 additional free-throw regardless of where on the floor the contact was made. On all non-shooting personal fouls, the team who was fouled receives the basketball at the closest point out-of-bounds from where the foul was made.

If a team commits more than the legal number of fouls in a half or quarter, the player who was fouled will receive two free-throws for each additional foul. Here they are… Technical Foul A technical foul is called when a coach or player brings the game of basketball into disrepute and is not made in relation to contact.

Flagrant Foul A flagrant foul may be a personal or technical foul of a violent or savage nature, or a technical noncontact foul which displays unacceptable conduct. Unsportsmanlike Foul An unsporting foul is a noncontact technical foul which consists of unfair, unethical, dishonorable conduct or any behavior not in accordance with the spirit of fair play.

Intentional Foul An intentional foul is a personal or technical foul that may or may not be premeditated and is not based solely on the severity of the act. Game Violations When a violation occurs, play is immediately stopped and the team who committed the violation loses possession of the basketball. Out-of-Bounds Violation The basketball is ruled out-of-bounds when it touches either a player, the floor, or an object that is out of bounds.

If the basketball lands on the line, that is still considered out of bounds. Traveling Violation Traveling is difficult to describe in writing, but is in place to prevent players from taking more than one step while holding the basketball.

Double Dribble Violation A double dribble can occur in two situations: When a player touches the basketball with both hands while dribbling. Held Ball Violation When two opponents grab the basketball at the same time and it cannot be gained by a single player quickly, a held ball violation will be called.

If they do, the penalty is a turnover. The offensive team can also be called for a 3-second violation in some leagues.

A violation is called and the basketball is given to the opposition. Shot Clock Violation A shot clock is used to increase the speed of the game and prevent teams from stalling the basketball.

Here are the rules when a player is shooting free-throws… Lane Violation — Shooter The player shooting a free-throw is not allowed to jump or step over the free-throw line until the basketball has touched the rim. Lane Violation — Non-Shooters The other 9 players on the court during free-throws must also follow specific rules… The four players behind the three-point line are not allowed to cross over the three-point line until the basketball has touched the rim.

The five players lined up on the edges of the key can step into the key as soon as the basketball has left the shooters hands. If the free-throw shooter makes the shot on a defensive lane violation, the shot counts and play continues. If one of the offensive players breaks one of these rules, the free-throw does not count and the opposition receives the basketball out-of-bounds. Possession Arrow The possession arrow is used after every held-ball or when the referees are unsure on an out-of-bounds call.

The possession arrow then alternates between the two teams for the remainder of the game. Injuries Coaches, parents, and team members on the sideline must wait until the referee has given permission before entering the court to attend to the injured player.

Half-time can last anywhere from 3 minutes — 15 minutes depending on the age group and level the teams are playing at. Moving your pivot foot once you've stopped dribbling is traveling.

Timeouts A timeout is a stoppage in play that allows the coach to talk to the players and allows the players to rest and hydrate.

Instead, players must continually move around the court keeping the key open for dribble penetration. While there may be times where a player appears to take many steps in between dribbles, the basketball rule book clearly states that a player cannot travel while dribbling the basketball.
