• The gym will be available 15 minutes prior to your scheduled game. Please instruct your players to not arrive
  • There will be a 30 minute practice time prior to each game.
  • Clock:
    • 8 minute running time for the first three quarters. The clock will stop only on shooting fouls.
    • In the 4th quarter the clock will stop on all whistles.
    • At approximately the 4 minute mark of all four quarters, the clock will be stopped and
      required substitutions will be made.
    • Foul shots will be shot at around the10ft mark. If the player would like to shoot from the
      foul line, that is fine. Foul shooter cannot follow the foul shot as this is too great an
      advantage.
    • No defense outside the 3-point arc.
    • There will be no “holding the ball” outside the 3-point arc at any point during the game.  If the referee determines that the ball is being held (a stall), a turnover will result.
    • There will be a prayer involving both teams at half court prior to the game. Do not
      forget this!
    • Seat belt rule is in effect. A coach may stand up to address a player and teach only! Only
      one coach may stand up at a time. Coaches please resist the temptation to shout out where to throw every pass and to shoot or dribble.
    • There is no coaching allowed by parents from the stands. It is very loud in the gyms and the kids will most likely not understand what you are saying. Let the kids learn by trying and succeeding or making mistakes.
    • Only two coaches are allowed on the bench.
    • We do keep score; it is competitive but please keep it in perspective. This is a time for
      learning. This is a Catholic league and good sportsmanship is not optional.
    • First aid will be at the scorers table on each court.
    • The referees are Hillsborough HS boys and girl’s CYO players. This is an opportunity
      for them to interact with children and that is pretty special. At no time shall a coach or fan
      address an official about a call. Do not try to intimidate these young men and women.
      This is a zero tolerance policy on behavior. If there is a problem please locate the site
      manager on duty.
    • There is admission charged for entrance to the games. This fee goes towards paying
      officials and gym rental fees.
    • Please, no food is allowed in the Hillsborough School District gyms. We are guests of the Hillsborough Board of Education and the Hillsborough HS Athletic Department. Please monitor all children at all times. No one is allowed to enter the any other portion of the HS.

Please alert the site manager if there is a problem.
