Waivers, Insurance, Uniforms

Waivers:

All coaches need to (type complete) submit a 2021 Holiday Tournament Collegiate Prep Roster and Waiver.  These can be printed directly off our website on the Forms page listed under the 2021 Holiday Tournament header.

Players who are not on the initial team roster and/or have not signed a CPBA waiver will not be allowed to play.  If a coach is somehow able to sneak a player without the knowledge of CPBA, that particular team coach assumes ANY and ALL risk regarding that player’s safety as well as is solely financially responsible and risks forfeiting that game that an illegal player participates.

 Insurance:

All teams are required to have their own liability insurance policy that has Collegiate Prep Basketball Academy and City of Cumming Dobbs Creek listed and held harmless for ANY and ALL claims or negligence.  Teams that do not have insurance please feel free to contact the providers listed below. ALL HEAD COACHES/PROGRAM COORDINATORS ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LIABILITY OF THEIR OWN PLAYERS AND BY PARTICIPATING AGREE TO SUCH TERMS.  It is your responsibility to protect yourself as an independent entity.  Collegiate Prep recruits the teams, organizes the officials, schedules the 

games, secures facilities and executes all administrative aspects, but each team is an independent contractor.

Game Rules. Rosters, Score Sheets

Game Format and Rules:     

* All coaches must use and have the CPBA score sheet. These can be printed directly off our website on the Forms page listed under the 2021 Holiday Tournament header. Other score sheets or writing it on a piece of paper will result in an administrative technical foul and we will begin the game with no jump ball, 2 free throws for the opponent and possession to the opponent.

* (2) 20 minute running clock halves

* Stopped clock last :30 seconds of the first half and last 1 minute of the second half

* 1st overtime - 2 minute overtime with a running clock, stopped the last 30 seconds..
If still tied 2nd overtime - we jump the ball and we will put (2) more minutes on the clock (running- no stopping) it is the first team to score (2) or more points.   For this second overtime if no one scores (2) points at the end of this second overtime the game will end as a tie.  If a team has scored (1) point they will win.  If no one has scored the game will be recorded as a tie.

* All other rules governed by Georgia High School Rules

* This means that only (1) head coach is allowed to stand during the game and must remain inside the designated coaching box.  The head coach is the ONLY coach that is permitted to speak to officials per GHSA rules.

* Coaches are responsible for the actions of their fans and will be given a warning then assessed a bench technical foul which is assessed to the head coach. 

* Any coaches removed from a game (2 technical fouls) are automatically suspended for the next scheduled game. Suspended coaches are not allowed to attend the suspended game.

Basketball size:

·         4th  5th  & 6th grade boys as well as a;; girls divisions – 28.5 (women’s size)

·         7th, 8th & 9th  grade boys – 29.5   

 

Rosters:

All teams must have players registered on the form provided with registration. All parents/guardians of players must sign the waiver as well.

* Only players on the official roster who have a signed parent waiver and on the official score sheet will be allowed to play

* School enrollment or dated report card showing the player’s grade need to be submitted to your director or coach.  Collegiate Prep does not need or want to collect these.  You will need to produce if there is a protest filed with the league.  Any team filing a protest must do so in writing via email to [email protected]
There is also a $50 administrative fee.  If the accused team is found to be in violation there is a $100 penalty to the team that has an illegal player.  Obviously teams with illegal players will forfeit ALL games that the illegal player participated.

* 7 players minimum and 15 players maximum on a roster

* All rosters are final prior to your first scheduled game.

Officials, Team Benches, Parents/Fans

Officials:

   * Independent Officials from across multiple associations.  We want the best we can get.  Most are seasoned high school patch officials.

   * 2 person crew for all regular season and tournament games

* Parents should not be engaging with officials as this could lead to a bench technical foul. 

Team Benches: 

        *It is the responsibility of the team to provide their own warm-up basketballs.  CPBA will provide game balls (Wave or Evolution) for every game.

Teams need to have a towel or towels to wipe up spilled water on both the court and the bench area.  Failure to do so will result in a bench technical foul.  THE CLOCK WILL RUN WHILE TEAMS WIPE UP THE FLOOR & YOUR TEAM WILL BE CHARGED A TIMEOUT AS A PENALTY.  WE NEED TO KEEP GAMES ON TIME BEHIND YOU.  We will start the clock out of a timeout while this occurs as to not delay the game thus leaving yourself open to a technical foul per GHSA rules.

* Teams need to clean up all their bottles after their games.  Those who do not will lose the privilege of having bottles on the bench.


Parents/Fans:
 There is a zero tolerance policy for all coaches, players, parents and fans.

* Officials have the right to warn an individual or specific fan as well as the team bench.  Coaches will be expected to control the behavior of their fans.  Officials can assess a bench technical foul for the behavior of that team’s fans. 

* Any fans that are required to be removed from the court are subject from not attending the next scheduled date of games.  After the second incident involving the same fan that fan is prohibited from attending any future games for the remainder of the tournament.
