PAL Basketball Rules - Grade 6
PAL Basketball at this age is about learning basic skills and having fun. What is not covered in the rules should be viewed in the spirit of good sportsmanship and the spirit of fair play. Rules are as follows:
  • 2 - 20 minute running halves – with stoppage during last 2 minutes of each half.
  • Each team must engage at half court
  • Each team must play man-to-man defense with one exception, i.e., the coach can elect to ‘press’ in the last 2 minutes of each half. 
  • All other PIAA rules apply.
