New FIBA / Basketball Victoria Rules – 1st October…

Hi All,

 

As of the new season for domestic, and will be for VJBL quite possibly as well.

 

These will be added to our by-laws, and website shortly.

 

New Rules
Please be aware the FIBA rules have changed effective from the start of our new season (Monday October 1st).

To follow is a file outlining all the changes made, but the key changes for a domestic level are:-

– Technical fouls (player, coach and bench) will all now be two shots + possession (This is not the FIBA rule, but instead a state-wide by-law that will be used in VJBL and BigV as well).

– The inbound following a technical foul, unsportsmanlike foul or disqualifying foul shall now take place at the throw-in line in the team’s frontcourt (and they shall only be entitled to pass into the frontcourt).

– During an inbound in the final two minutes of the game, the referee administering the inbound shall give a warning to the defender (using signal and voice) about not reaching over the line and interfering with the inbound. Should this action happen, an immediate technical foul shall be assessed to that player.

– When the game clock shows 2:00 minutes or less in the fourth quarter or overtime, following a time-out taken by the team that is entitled to the possession of the ball from its backcourt, the coach of that team has the right to decide whether the game shall be resumed with a throw-in from the throw-in line in the team’s frontcourt or from the team’s backcourt at the place nearest to where the game was stopped.

– For a double foul to be called, the fouls must additionally have an equal penalty. For example if each team has 2 team fouls in the quarter, a double foul can occur, however if the defensive team instead had 5 team fouls (in the bonus), a double foul could not be called as the penalty for one of the fouls includes free throws and the other does not.

Notice of Special General Meeting

Please be advised that the Pakenham and District Basketball Association Inc (PDBA) will be holding a Special General Meeting (SGM) at 2:00pm on the 16th September 2018.

Details of the SGM are as follows;

Time and Date : 2:00pm 16th September 2018

Location : Creche, Aligned Leisure, 4 Olympic Way, Pakenham

Agenda Items :

  1. Confirm by way of vote, that as detailed in the Constitution, the PDBA financial year is for the period 1st October through 30th September.
  2. Present and vote on the below motion proposing a change to the PDBA Constitution. (or download proposed change here)

 

Motion:

To change the Pakenham and District Basketball Association Incorporation’s Constitution,

Incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012, Issue 7 – 20th August 2015.

Rules 49, as per the attached.

Rationale:

To ensure continuity for the general operation of the Association, and to mitigate risk against loss of knowledge and in-house expertise, a motion has been raised to change the constitution. This change would allow promotion and continuity of members to become members of the executive committee. In putting forward this motion, the current committee of the Association believes far better long term outcomes are able to be achieved.

The committee’s Bi-Annual renewal of all executive committee positions, can lead to disruption and a loss of knowledge within the Association, which in turn does not endear the Association to current and potential long term operational and strategic partners. Frequent changes in leadership also cause instability within the organisation and can lead to communication break downs.

In summary, we are asking that people nominate prior to the election day, so that all members are able to make an informed decision. This will increase the stability of our Association and reduce the possibility of someone from outside the Association coming in without an understanding of our clientele and history. Outside support and assistance may be sought by the Association to fill points of need, with the desire to increase the committee’s knowledge and expertise as a whole. This will allow for a more professional committee, and further allow additional interested parties to join the committee without having to necessarily take on executive roles in their first year.

Should this motion be passed, the next annual general meeting will see nominations for positions having to be received in writing to the Secretary at least fourteen (14) days prior to the scheduled annual general meeting being held.

Current Rule

49 Nominations

(1) Prior to the election of each position, the Chairperson of the meeting must call for nominations to fill that position.

(2) An eligible member of the Association may—

(a) nominate himself or herself; or

(b) with the member’s consent, be nominated by another member.

(3) A member who is nominated for a position and fails to be elected to that position may be nominated for any other position for which an election is yet to be held.

Proposed Rule 49

49 Nominations

(1) Prior to the election of each position, the Chairperson of the meeting must call for nominations to fill that position.

(2) An eligible member of the Association may—

(a) nominate himself or herself in writing to the Secretary at least fourteen (14) days prior to the election; or

(b) with the member’s consent, be nominated by another member, in writing to the Secretary at least fourteen (14) days prior to the election.

(3) A member who is nominated for a position as per Rule 49 (2) (a) or Rule 49 (2) (b) and who is nominated for committee positions detailed in Rule 42 (a), (b), (c) or (d) must have in the previous 24 months, and for a period not less than 12 months, served in a committee position as detailed in Rule 42 (a), (b), (c), (d) or (e).

(4) A member who is nominated for a position as per Rule 49 (2) (a) or Rule 49 (2) (b) and fails to be elected to that position may be nominated for any other position for which an election is yet to be held.

(5) If no nominations for committee positions as detailed in Rule 42 (a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) are received as per Rule 49 (2) (a) or Rule 49 (2 ) (b) then the Chairperson of the meeting must call for nominations of eligible members from eligible members who are in attendance.

PDBA Uniform Modifications

The PDBA will allow players to wear compression gear, as per recent FIBA rule changes.

CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

During the Season, all teams will be required to meet the following criteria when issuing their teams with playing uniforms.

The uniform of all team members shall consist of:

  • Singlets of the same dominant colour front and back. All players (male and female) must tuck their singlet into their shorts.
  • Shorts of the same dominant colour front and back, but not necessarily of the same colour as the shirts. The shorts must end above the knee.
  • If Associations are unable to meet the above criteria they need to contact the VJBL Administration and explain why. If the PDBA believes there are exceptional
    circumstances they may give permission for associations to make alternate uniform arrangements.

UNIFORM CONTRAST PRIORITY

When a team is named first in the fixture, whether playing at home or a neutral venue, the association/team is required to check the Contrast Listing on the website.
If a team is grouped in the same section on the Contrast list as their opponent, the first named team must change to their alternate uniform.

RELIGIOUS CLOTHING

Religious headgear, provided it is black, white or same dominant colour of playing singlet, may be worn during PDBA games and common sense must be used in these situations.

VJBL UNIFORM RULE

COMPRESSION GEAR & UNDERGARMENTS

The PDBA will allow players to wear compression gear, as per FIBA rules.

Any compression item must be black, white or same dominant colour of playing singlet.

If there is a logo or branding on the item, it must not be visible outside of the uniform or to be the same colour as the item. Eg, black on black.

The colour choice will be decided by the player’s team to ensure that players have uniformity if more than one player in a team is wearing compression gear.
This means that if one player is wearing black compression gear, any other player in the team must also wear black in any compression gear worn.
