Local Players. Global Impact.
GLENWOOD BASKETBALL For more than a decade, Glenwood's SLAM program has helped hundreds of young athletes develop their competitive game in a fun, safe, and challenging environment. JOIN OUR TEAM today!
RULES of the GAME
For those of you who know the game well, it maybe helpful to know a few important rules have changed over the years. For example, players no longer need to have a "set stance" to be granted a charge; they only need to obtain legal guarding position (i.e. defender arrives at the position first, has both shoulders squared to the offense, and is displaced by the offense). Also, it now takes three points of contact in the front court before there can be a backcourt violation (both feet and the ball have to cross into the front court, not just the ball). Another recent change is that two hands placed on an offensive player is an automatic violation, regardless of how inconsequential the contact is. Finally, the top and sides of the backboard are no longer out of bounds -- only the supports are out. There are more, but these are some of the main ones. Hope this helps alleviate confusion or frustration as we work together to create a more fun and supportive atmosphere for our players, fans, coaches, and officials.
FANS in the STANDS
Glenwood's SLAM Fans are awesome! Here are this year's guidelines for sportsmanship for coaches, players, and fans:
We agree to cheer for our team, not against other teams.
We agree to not make audible derogatory comments about officials or their calls.
We agree to be encouraging and supportive in comments to players as opposed to critical or instructive.
If you have a pressing concern about an official/coach/parent/player, pass it on to our SLAM coaches who will pass it on to either the league convener or president of the local CHSAA Officials Association.
