Game structure:
Teams will have 5 minutes to warm up before their game and 5 minutes for half-time.  

All games may start up to 20 minutes early (except the 1st game of the day). This has allowed us to run the entire tournament on time or ahead of schedule in years past. If the previous game on your court ends early you will have 5 minutes to warm up, then your game will start early. We will not start a game more than 20 minutes earlier than the scheduled time.

Game clock:
14U games 6 min. quarters
16U games 7 min quarters
18U games 8 min quarters

If a team is winning by 20 points or more in the 2nd half it will be a running clock. If the lead drops below 20 points it will return to a normal clock.

Home team is listed on top of the bracket (or first on the schedule). The home team wears white, provides the game ball and keeps the official book.
Visiting team is listed on bottom of the bracket (or second on the schedule). The visiting team wears dark uniforms and runs the clock.

Home team will complete a scorecard & leave it at the scorers table.
Both teams will text the team names (including division and gender) and game score to (636) 244-8763 immediately after each game. (Example: 14U Boys: Vikings 42, Cardinals 49)
