A. In the first season of the league, there will be two (2) conferences with eight (8 ) teams in the conference.

B. League structure may change based off of how many teams leave or wish to come into the league.

C. Conferences must always have at least eight (8 ) teams during any season.

D. Teams may wish to be added to the waiting list to join next season at any point.
1. Those teams may be added to a current existing conference or (if there are enough new teams) join a new conference
a. Teams currently in the league may wish to leave their current conference granted that the conference will still have at least eight (8 ) teams.

E. At the conclusion of every season, a roll call will be conducted to find out if team's will be returning for the next season. If a team does not answer the roll call within two (2) days, the team will be discontinued and their players will become available to everyone else as transfers.

F. These bylaws are subject to review and change at the conclusion of every season.

Recruiting
A. Before every season a recruiting period will follow the roll call.
1. It will last until every team has filled out all of their fifteen (15) scholarships or they officially declare that they wish to not recruit any further for that season.
a. A player can be cut at any point, except during the recruiting period, and his scholarship will no longer count towards the team's fifteen (15) scholarships.
i. The cut player will become eligible to transfer the next season.

B. All recruiting bids are due by 10:00 PM EST on their respective days to the league e-mail address (collegehoopsleagueoffice@gmail.com).
1. Recruiting bids are the process of allocating points to the players a team wishes to recruit.
a. All teams are given ten (10) points to give to players as they wish in season 1. One (1) bonus point will be awarded to the team that is closest in proximity to the player's hometown bidding on any given day.
b. Beginning in season 2, all teams will have their ten (10) points to allocate plus one (1) for every win in the previous season. Two (2) points will be added to a team's available allocatable if that team qualified for the NIT in the previous season; if they win the NIT, an additional one (1) point will be added on to those. If a team qualifies for the NCAA Tournament, they will receive four (4) points in a similar fashion; if they win the NCAA Tournament, they will receive an additional one (1) point.
i. The amount of points available to a team does not carry over to the next season.
2. If a team fails to e-mail in their allocation of points in by the deadline, points will be distributed evenly among the players they were already recruiting. If none exist, then the will be distributed over the top players available until there are no more available points.

C. Recruits will be available to be bid on for the amount of days equivalent to the number of teams bidding on that player.
1. This number may change daily if another team wishes to join the fray.
2. Effectively, if only one (1) team bids on a player on the first day of bidding on the player, the player automatically joins the only bidding team.

D. Teams can only bid on the top one-hundred (100) high school seniors at any given time.
1. The amount of Junior College Transfers and normal Transfers is subject to change based upon the amount of players people cut and the number of players still available from the previous season.

E. If a player is never recruited during the season, they will join the list of Junior College transfers for next season.

F. If normal transfers do not get recruited by any team, they will become Junior College transfers provided that they are not a Senior for the upcoming season.

G. The Commissioner holds the right to delay recruiting if he cannot perform the task daily.
1. Teams will be informed in advance of this problem.

Scheduling
A. All teams are responsible for putting together a non-conference schedule of four (4) games in an avaiable six (6) days.
1. When an agreement is reached between teams not in the same conference to play, they are to post it in the corresponding day's game announcement thread.

B. All conference games will be scheduled by the league and will be posted at the beginning of the recruiting period.

C. At the conclusion of the season, a conference tournament will be held based upon the team's finish in conference play.
1. If a teams are tied for a position, head-to-head record will be the first tie-breaker. If that does not solve the issue of a tie, then the teams' record versus the best team in the conference not in the tie-breaker will be compared and will go down the list until a winner is determined. If the tie is not solved after that, a coin flip will decide.

D. An NCAA Tournament and NIT will be held every year.
1. The NCAA Tournament will consist of four (4) teams, the two (2) conference tournament champions and the two (2) best teams determined by a simple mathmatical formula given to the commissioner.
2. The NIT will consist of four (4) teams: teams that won their conference regular season but did not qualify for the NCAA tournament and the rest will be at-large bids determined by the same formula.

E. Games will be simmed on a day-to-day basis
1. All lineup changes or preference changes must be given to the commissioner by 7:00PM EST on the day of a game if a player wishes they are implemented for that day's game
