GYM RULES:

  • Teams assume responsibility for the school facilities being used.
  • Please change into your basketball shoes after entering the building. No outdoor shoes or boots are allowed anywhere near the court.
  • Please pick up all trash, including water bottles, and properly dispose of it. We want to maintain a good relationship with the school system/facility managers so we can run these leagues for years to come!
  • Anyone responsible for vandalizing any part of a facility or its equipment will be removed from the league without a refund and introduced to the police.
  • Hanging on a basketball rim anywhere in the gym is not allowed at any point. If you are caught doing so while playing or while not playing, the referees will not let you play in your game and you will be suspended from your next game.

FORFEITS:

  • All teams are required to notify the HUB Sports Boston office as soon as possible if they are unable to form a full team (4 or more) for any regular season or playoff game. It must be no later than 2pm the day of a weeknight game and no later than Friday at 5pm for a Sunday game. As long as you contact us before the deadlines, you will not be charged a fee. However, even one forfeit could affect your seeding in the playoffs.
  • If a team contacts the office after the set deadlines but more than 2 hours before game time, the game will be forfeited, and the forfeiting team will be required to pay a $50 fee. Within 2 hours of game time will require a payment of their referee fee, their opponent’s referee fee, and an additional $20 fee before their next game. No exceptions.
  • If a team fails to show up for a game without contacting the league office, the game will be forfeited, and the forfeiting team will be required to pay their referee fee, their opponent’s referee fee, and an additional $50 fee before their next game. No exceptions.
  • If a team shows up with less than the minimum number of required players based on format, the game will be forfeited, and the forfeiting team will be required to pay both teams’ referee fees. No additional fee will be applied. A scrimmage can then take place if both teams want to.
  • A second regular season forfeit will make your team ineligible for playoffs. A third regular season forfeit will result in your immediate removal from the league.
  • Forfeit/penalty fees must be paid to the league prior to the team’s next scheduled game. Failure to pay the forfeit and/or penalty fee will result in removal from the league. Forfeit fees can be paid online [click here].

SUSPENSIONS:

  • Any player who has two (2) technical fouls called on him/her in one (1) game, or is ejected from a game for unsportsmanlike conduct, will be automatically ejected from the gym immediately for that night. The player will also automatically draw a two (2) game suspension. If the foul is flagrant enough to cause intentional bodily harm, the player will be removed from the league.
  • Individual technical fouls will be carried over from game to game. Any player receiving two (2) technical fouls in one game or three (3) technical fouls in a season will be suspended for two (2) games.
  • If an ejected player refuses to leave or re-enters the gym on that same night, the team he or she plays for will automatically forfeit their game. In the event such action does occur, that individual is automatically removed from the league.
