3rd - 8th Grade Rules

JR. STALLIONS COMPETITION LEAGUE 

3RD - 8TH GRADE 

Introduction 

This document has been released by the Stansbury Stallions Basketball Program to serve as guidelines to the Junior Stallions Basketball League.  

  • Divisions have established their own rules based on skill ability/age. 

Goals & Objectives 

Our goals are:

  • To provide an opportunity for players of different skill abilities to participate equally in the game of basketball

  • To provide a fun experience for every player regardless of skill level. 

  • To promote the concept of team unity, companionship, instruction and learning experiences to the best of the coaches’ ability. 

League Expectations

We expect all coaches, players, referees, parents and fans to maintain the highest sportsmanlike behaviors.  As volunteers of this program, we expect all involved to maintain the highest standard of positive leadership and modeling on and off the court.  Failure to meet these standards will result in dismissal from the league and facilities. Thank you for your help and support as we strive to run a program with the highest level of sportsmanship.
