And how long is each quarter? Any other rules/tips you can tell me? It’s my first year of basketball, and I’m really lost because everyone else on the team knows all these rules – they’ve been playing forever!
I play center or a forward.
i am a middle school student the quarter is 8min it all last between 1 and 1.5 hours. and the coach WILL GET WILD AT YOU IF YOU DO SOMETHING WRONG i almost got kicked out cuz i missed a buzzer 3pointer that took us to over time and we won the game if we lost he would of kicked me out becare full.
GOOD LUCK THOUGH
At least five(5) minutes per quarter.
It should be at least a bit over that, probably 6-8 minutes long.
One tip would be to stay calm during the game, try not to get too excited. Be ready to watch little kids play, a lot of missed baskets and tons of open shots.
Make sure communication with your teammates is working well, try to tell them what you plan on doing and make a game plan.
Middle school games are 6 minute quarters. Been there, done that. Check the rulebook. High school games are 8 minute quarters.
Overall about 1.5hrs
8mins a qtr
(32 mins game time)
like 2 hours
8 mintues I am pretty sure
