-Captains will NOT be allowed to be traded under any circumstances.

-Free Throws only occur inside 2 minutes, which is 1-1 unless it is a shooting foul. Also, technical and flagrant fouls also have free throws, regardless of what time it occurs in the game

-You can not shoot the ball directly off the check (The Marcelo Rule).

-Subs can only be done when the ball is not in play (Timeouts, dead balls, after a bucket, illegal subs result in a technical foul, and loss of posession if it is done on offense.)

-Fighting (punches thrown) will result in a 3 game suspension, a second occurence will require a "buy back" to get into the league at a $10 fee.

-There is a 6 minute minimum for all players to play unless a severe injury is obtained. Failure to do this will result in a team forfeit.

in the final 2 minutes, if a team commits 3 fouls, on the 3rd foul the free throws will change from 1-1, to 2 free throws.

Any hate filled language/racial slurs being used on or off the court at NOBL games, can result in a technical foul, and a 2 game suspension. (The Keelan Rule)




A team must have at least 4 players within 15 minutes of originally scheduled game time or the game will be a forfeit.


 If a game is 4 on 4 and the opposing team has at least 7 players, the minimum minutes played rule will be lowered to 4 minutes. 




A timeout can be called as long as the player was initially in bounds, meaning an in air timeout is valid as long as the player was inbounds when going in the air, and having possession of the ball. (The Flaherty rule)






-The Matt Glenn Rule- To avoid players signing up under alter egos , players will be required to have their ID before they are allowed to play a game. In the event that their ID first and last name, doesn't match up with the signed up name they used, they will simply not be allowed to play for the entire season.

-The Social Media Rule- In order to avoid players hiding and quality players going as nameless "no names" all players will be forced to sign up and have their own facebook or twitter account so captains all have a fair scouting report.



-NO LAUGHING AT A PLAYER'S INJURY , The Rule of Thumb (The Mike Monterosso Rule)
