Current official rules and regulations are defined by the National Federation of State High School Associations Basketball Rules Book except where amended and superseded by the following AYB standing rules. Go to www.nfhs.org for National Federation of State High School Associations information.
5 Second Throw-In:
A team attempting to throw a ball in-bounds has five seconds to release the ball towards the court. The five second clock starts when the team throwing it in has possession of the ball (usually bounced or handed to a player while out of bounds by the official).
10 Second Violation:
A player must cross half court in 10 seconds after their team inbounds the ball. If they do not cross half court in 10 seconds, possession is awarded to the other team.
The dribbler is not considered to be in the front court until both feet and the basketball are in the front court. Once the dribbler has both feet and the ball in the front court, the ball must remain in the front court from that point forward. If the dribbler in the front court passes the ball to a player who catches the ball while crossing the half court line from the back court, that is a backcourt violation because the ball attains backcourt status as soon as that player catches the ball, then front court status again when he/she lands.
Offensive 3 Second Rule:
An offensive player cannot be in their team's foul lane for more than three seconds while his team has control of the ball. The count starts when the offensive player enters the lane and his team has control of the ball in the frontcourt (if a player is in the lane and his team has control of the ball in the backcourt, there is no count). The count stops when a shot is taken, the player exits the lane or there is a loss of team control/possession.
All players will wear the uniforms provided by the league. Jewelry will not be permitted at any time during a game and should be discouraged in practice. All coaches will be responsible for seeing that their players are not wearing watches, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, or hair clips. These items pose a threat to the safety of the players wearing them and to the other players as well.
