Rules for NBA, NCAA AND Gym Rat Divisions
Mount Ephraim Basketball Rules 2010-11 Season
1. All Leagues, All players should play at least half the game. Easiest way to do this is sub every four minutes. During Playoffs I will be easier on this, but the youth should take part in both halves. If you play the youth in the regular season at least half the game I don’t think this will be a problem. 2. NBA and NCAA Leagues will be four eight minute Quarters, three time outs for the game. Gym Rats will be two 20 minute halves running clock with 3 time outs. 3. All Leagues, any player giving a technical foul will be ejected from the game and the next game. If the player gets another technical foul he will be ejected for that game and the next two games. A third technical and the player is expelled for the season. Any eighth grade player given a technical foul loses their chance of winning the Mount Ephraim Basketball scholarship. 4. No full court pressure, [a] In the Gym Rats Division, please don’t pick up at the half court line pull them back to the top of the key. When bringing up the ball the Offense has 10 seconds to get it past the top of the key other wise it will be a backcourt violation. And don’t trap meaning don’t have two players waiting there. [b] In the NCAA & NBA Division OK to play closer to the half court line, but i have found out the Referee’s like to let the player at least get into the front court before playing defense. If the Offense gets into the front court any inbounds can be defended full court. Make sure Referee's understand this. In the NBA division you can press the last minute of the game. 5. In the Gym Rat Division, you will be allowed five seconds in the lane. In the lane gets reset every time a shot is taken, so if a player is in there for like fifteen seconds and there is several shots taken thats why there is no call. 6. Foul Shots, [a] Gym Rats: 3 feet in front of the foul line can hop over but can’t be the first to touch the ball. [b] NCAA: can hop over the line but can’t be the first one to touch the ball. I would like this rule only for the weaker players the better players just for their own development should shoot the right way. 7. No three point shots, I personally think this is why players don’t shoot the short jumpers and layups well. Give a player a ball and he shoots from long range in practice. If you check most games from last year, teams lost because of 1. they miss over 70% of their foul shots and. 2. Miss to many lay ups. 8. And finally this is a Rec League everyone makes the playoffs so coach’s, HAVE FUN
A graduate of ours Samantha Dimitri is first girl to kick a field goal in South Jersey
Deptford girl splits the uprights as a kicker By Marc Narducci INQUIRER STAFF WRITER It all started with a powder-puff football game and evolved into something much bigger for Samantha Dimitri. The Deptford senior made history in Saturday's 21-17 loss to Pennsville in an interdivisional Tri-County football game. According to area historian Chuck Langerman, Dimitri became the first female in South Jersey to kick a field goal, which she booted from 23 yards out. She was also perfect on her two conversion kicks, finishing a memorable debut that mirrored her performance the previous October, when the Deptford juniors played the seniors in power-puff football. In that game, Dimitri was successful on all five of her conversion kicks, and word got back to varsity football coach Al Orio. It turns out that Orio knew Dimitri well since he is Deptford's junior varsity softball coach, and she is a varsity player. One thing led to another, and Dimitri tried out for the football team and not only made the squad but beat out two other hopefuls for the kicking job. She also tried out for the punting job but did not win that. As a freshman and sophomore, Dimitri played soccer at Deptford, and last fall she joined the field hockey team. She enjoyed all those experiences but says they don't match up to how she felt after her football debut. "It was definitely crazy, and I've never experienced anything like that," she said. "It was the best feeling when I made the field goal." What has been just as good from her perspective is how the players have accepted her. "My teammates have been awesome," he said. "Now I hang out with a lot of the football players." Her teammates have looked at what she has accomplished with admiration
