I don't have a ton of suggestions actually. In my experience, basketball has been basketball. Rec leagues are a lot of fun. I say play hard and don't get in the habit of complaining to officials. It seems adults who have taken a break from real basketball for a few years often come back with renewed fury in barking with refs. And I guess it's each player's own prerogative, but I'd suggest fighting the urge to settle and jack up endless amounts of triples. That also seems to be another development as some players age.

In my personal experience, running hard has often been effective. Most teams usually have a weak link somewhere, and sometimes it's everywhere. The older people seem to get, the more likely they seem to be out of shape so the payoff in rec leagues actually ends up being greater for the guy who can maintain his ability and endurance over the years.Also, discipline is often at a premium, since there's no coaching or anything. I often try to take advantage of player's unwillingness to get back on defense in a timely manner.

Oh, my mistake. It sounded as if you were saying you were "starting" (as in beginning to play in) a local rec league.

That seems extremely short, considering even high school games run 16 minute halves. Further, would there be a running clock? I'd say I'd run a minimum of 16 minute halves, likely 20 if the clock is running (except for the final two minutes of each half, where the clock would then stop on dead balls).

Make it a 10 minutes per quarter or just start a 3 on 3 basketball tournament. It's much cheaper.

The gym is free we are charging minimal fee for t shirts and tips for volunteer refs.

Two 16 minute halves with stoppage in the last two minutes sounds great man thanks.
