Rules When Playing the New York Towers

Perception is Everything

Perception is Everything

When the New York Towers compete against other little people basketball teams, the rules, court size, and hoop height are the same as any other basketball game. There are no accomodations made.

With that being said, when the Towers compete against average height basketball teams, there are a few rule changes to level the playing field so to speak that allow for a more competitive game.

1)  Rebound Rule: Your team must let the ball bounce once after a shot is taken before taking possession. We can, however take the ball prior to the bounce.

2)  Bounce Pass Rule: your team must make a bounce pass when passing the ball to other players so we can have a chance of stealing the pass.

If you forget our rules it would a turn over for your team.
