Understanding the limitations of the age, referees should use discretion on double dribbling and traveling. However, they should be called if it gives the player a scoring opportunity advantage. (In other words, a 5-year old may take 2 steps for every dribble and need to use both hands to temporarily catch and re-dribble simply because of physical capability, however that player should not be able to take 5 steps while holding the ball in order to take a scoring opportunity)
