6th GRADE BASKETBALL

6th Grade Instructional Basketball League

Mission:  To introduce our 6th graders to basketball in an instructional environment that will allow for the development of basic fundamental skills.

Focus: Dribbling, passing, footwork, defense and shooting to ensure that all kids have an opportunity to participate.

Goal: Consistent development of fundamental and skills while teaching offensive and defensive game concepts.

NFHS rules will be followed to govern play with the following exceptions:

  • Timeouts: Each team will have two one minute time outs per half.
  • Game length: Each game will consist of four 10-minute quarters (some games may need to be adjusted to 8 minute quarters).  The clock will run continuously for the 10 minute quarters with the exception of timeouts. There will be a two-minute break between all quarters and 5 minutes during half time.

Scoring:  There is an option to keep score, but no requirement to keep official score or book.

Pressing: No pressing in the backcourt is allowed.
