Rules / Spirit
Our motto: No injuries, call fouls
Games should be competitive and fun, but never _entirely_ about winning
When defending, only reach for the ball - not the person
Defending should focus on how you move your feet, not your arms (keep your hands in the air - swatting at someone should not be a go-to move)
If you jump to contest, stay in your “cylinder” (imagine you’re inside a vertical tube)
When defending the ball handler stay in front of them and avoid pushing or moving into them from the side or back. If someone beats you to the net on a drive, avoid a desperate attempt to block them without positional advantage
Generally: If you are unsure whether something is overly physical or aggressive, don’t do it (feel free to ask Qs too!)
We generally don’t keep score, until the last ~20 min of each game.

We play at Dovercourt BGC, located in Dovercourt Park a few blocks north of Bloor. You enter from Westmoreland and you’ll need to be buzzed in by reception. If you don’t get any luck with the buzz, message the group text or call someone inside to get in.

We pay for the rental on a monthly basis and don’t collect payments until the end of the month. At that point we average out how much it cost per person across all the available slots that month and then tell them how much to etransfer. The cost per person per 1.5 hour slot is around $8-9, but it can go up or down a bit depending or down depending on attendance across the month. The court costs $60+tax/hour to rent.

What to bring
Please bring a black shirt and a white shirt. If you want to warm up, please bring a basketball!

Signup and Sub Rules
Signups are currently set at day before game at noon. In the past we’ve had issues where the slots fill up super fast, so we put a cap on new players. Anyone joining the group newly is marked a ‘Sub’. When signups are announced, anyone can register. However, existing players get priority for spots. At 6pm the day before the game, any subs secure their spots. Generally, all interested subs get in. Players move from subs to regular players after around 8 games played.
