All illegal contact should be blown/called as a foul.

Fouls are a natural part of play as they occur due to players attempting to secure possession of the ball or in attempting to prevent a shot at their basket. A player has five lives (fouls) and it is almost inevitable that one or more fouls will be committed as players tend to make errors in judgement.

Play can be greatly affected by the amount of contact you allow. Players at the novice stage need to be protected from an undue roughness in the game. The main aim is to allow skill to win on the day.

5th personal foul means a player is ejected.

If a team commits 4 fouls during the same quarter, each new foul will be penalised by 2 free throws. This is known as a “bonus” situation.
