U11 House League



All games are played under FIBA rules, with modifications below. 

  • Each team must supply a minor official for each game to work as the table crew. Minor official should be an adult if possible.
  • Teams must have 4 players to start the game, if they do not, a forfeit is declared after 5 minutes and teams will combine to ensure both have enough to play OR transition into some 3X3 half court games. 
  • Narrow key may be used if it is the only marking in the gym.
  • Games are all run time with the last 2 minutes stop time. Clock will stop for time outs & injuries.

If a game will exceed the allotted time - the referee will cut a segment or shorten the final quarter after notifying coaches and the table crew.

Team Players

4-on-4. Teams can play a full court 3-on-3 if both coaches and officials deem it necessary due to a lack of athletes present. 

Coaches can agree to go 5 on 5 IF both teams agree and have enough players to do so. 

Key Violations

For any 3 second violations, give warning to the athletes first and then call the violation.

Basket Height

8.5ft nets where possible. If the main nets do not lower, use the side courts OR you can use the full court, full nets if both coaches agree. 

Foul Line

No foul shots- Fouls are recorded on the sheet against the player and the team foul count. Team fouls 1-7 (Shooting, Defensive and Technical) count as 1 point for the non- fouling team in each 1/2. Team fouls 8 and beyond, or unsportsmanlike fouls count as 2 points for the non- fouling team. Offensive fouls and non- shooting defensive fouls result in loss of possession, no points.
