CMBA U11 3 Minute Game Rules
Modified Rules for U11 Division
Total 14 x 3-minute periods
All rules for CMBA league play apply except for the modifications listed below:
Modified Rules: (based on 8 players or more)
Exceptions to playing time rules:
Less Than 8 players - a team with less than 8 players will have no choice but to double shift at least 1 player each shift. All double shifts must be spread out equally with the players. Example, with 7 players in this format, no player would double shift more than 2 times in the first 13 periods.
Foul Trouble: Players can be substituted at any point with foul trouble. The guideline used for what constitutes foul trouble would be exceeding 2 fouls in the first FOUR periods, exceeding 3 fouls in the first EIGHT periods, or getting 4 fouls in the first TWELVE periods.
Unable to Continue current shift - if player “X” gets injured, fouls out or is unable to continue their shift, any player can substitute for the remainder of that shift and it will not be considered a double shift. They are playing on behalf of that player for the rest of the period. However, for all future periods, the playing time rules will apply if player “X” is unable to participate for the remainder of the game.
Disciplinary - If a player is not being played for a portion of the game due to circumstances within the team, the players number and length of time the player will be sitting, needs to be indicated on the tracking sheet before the start of the game.
The intent of this format is so all players can get the maximum amount of playing time. This is a tested format that is working in EYBA. We recognize that anytime you modify rules, these rules can be taken advantage at times. We are confident that everyone involved will support the spirit of these rules so that everyone can have a successful experience.
