  • Overtime: Overtime will consist of an additional 3 minutes stop time. Each team will be given one time-out each.

Unsportsmanlike Behaviour (INDIVIDUAL)

  •  One technical foul will serve as a warning for the player.
  • Two technical fouls (or an ejection) within one game will result in removal from the court and a one game suspension from their next scheduled game.
  • If a player accumulates three technical fouls over the course of more than one game they will be suspended from their next scheduled game. (Note that the player is not automatically ejected from the game in which the 3rd T is given).
  • Once the player has served a suspension the slate is clean and the accumulation begins anew.
  • Second Offense: If a player is suspended a second time they will miss the next 2 scheduled games. .
  • Third Offense: A third suspension will result in removal from the league.
  • If a player receives too many technical fouls he may be "flagged" in the registration system and unable to register for a set period of time.
  • Any threats or intention to injure, results in a minimum of a 1 game suspension.  The severity of the infraction will be determined by a quorum of individuals and may result in a longer suspension if it is determined so.
