Two Levels of Play:
- Level 1: For players with more experience and understanding of basketball. This division includes less involvement with Shine Buddies, and referees call basic violations and fouls. Score is kept. Children should be able to rebound the ball and dribble down court (exception: dribbling rules will be adapted for those who require use of a wheelchair).
- Level 2: For players who need more assistance on the court by the use of Shine Buddies. Referees will be present, but the primary goals include keeping children safe and giving all children the opportunity to succeed. Score is not kept
