How does playing time work in the leagues?

Hoop Dreams is dedicated to offering games and competition to all skill levels. Our seasonal leagues come with a playing time guarantee over two, 16-minute halves in a 32-minute game. In order to provide a competitive playing atmosphere for the participants, substitutions in the last three minutes of each game are completely controlled by the coach. Hoop Dreams believes this will inspire its players to develop their skills to be on the floor for the final three minutes. If you have specific concerns or questions about your child's participation, our staff is always available to discuss individual circumstances.
