Press rules

There have been some questions about the press rules in all divisions for the second round. Please read the following from the rules:

For Mini play

A press is defined as full-court man-to-man defense with no double-teaming in the backcourt.  First half of season: once a team obtains possession of the ball on an out of bounds or throw-in, in their backcourt, the defensive team must retreat over half.  Second half of season:  in the last shift (last 4 minutes), a press is allowed: a) for the losing team at any score; b) for the winning team if they lead by 20 points or less.  On a live ball (rebound or interception), the defensive team does not have to retreat over half.  The ball cannot be taken into the backcourt to stop defensive play.

For an infraction there will be one warning then a T for each time this happens

For Bantam Play

 A press is defined as full-court man-to-man defense with no double-teaming in the backcourt.  First half of season: once a team obtains possession of the ball on an out of bounds or throw-in, in their backcourt, the defensive team must retreat over half.  Second half of season: a press is allowed: a) for the losing team at any score; b) for the winning team if they lead by 20 points or less.

For an infraction there will be one warning then a T for each time this happens
