Warwick Youth FUN-damental Basketball 2018-2019 Game Rules

 

 

 

 

 

 

1)

No score is kept for the 6/7 year old FUNdamental games during the season.

 

*Coaches should focus on teamwork, proper dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, etc.

 

     

 

 

2)

No referees for 6/7 FUN-damentals age group.

 

*Coaches are in charge of flow of game & can enter court to teach or demonstrate.

 

*Before scrimmage games begin, there will be approx 10 mins of team vs. team fun relays (dribbling, shooting, etc)

 

*please end 3-5 minutes before end of the hour so your team can exit & next team can enter & warm-up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)

Approx. Hour Timeline for Saturday scrimmage games in Jan - Mar:

 

1st 5 minutes = Players warm up as a team

 

Next 10-15 minutes = Team vs. Team FUN challenge competitions / relays….see examples below.

 

Last 40 minutes = Team vs. Team full court game

 

*All scrimmage games will be 5 vs 5.

 

*All 5 defensive players will stand on the marked 1-5 #s in your team bag in the lane while on defense.

 

*The #s reduce defensive pressure & allow teams more passes & better shots (more made baskets overall).

 

 

 

 

 

 

4)

The 2 Head coaches will decide which fun competitions / relays to do each Saturday after team warm ups.

 

Examples:

 

 

 

 

“Dribbling full length of court & back” competition

 

“Dribbling full length of court, lay up / jump shot & dribble back” competition

 

“Chest & Bounce pass” 1 long line team vs. team competition

 

“Lay-up”, "Free throw" & Jump shot competitions

 

 

 

 

 

 

5)

NO Free throws for 1st 4 weeks of games, as it takes too long to set players up.

 

*If a 6/7 player is fouling, coaches can take time to explain & the ball is taken out at side court.

 

*In weeks 5-8, coaches can choose to set up & shoot free throws if they feel teams are ready.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6)

EQUAL playing time for ALL players!  Every player must be substituted fairly.

 

*Main goals for this young 6/7 age is player development, confidence & learning the FUN-damentals!

 

*Rotate players at point guard during game so all get a chance to dribble the ball up the court
