New rule changes to be trialled for Summer 2018/19 Season
Following an in-depth review of the Southern Basketball Association’s By-Laws, the SBA has announced a number of changes, which will be trialled for the 2018/19 Summer season.
The review was conducted by a Junior Domestic sub-committee and the aim was to ensure that generally the changes recommended would be suitable for all and not a few.
The changes are:
- Individual teams will be allocated a maximum ‘points value’ of 14 points for each competition.
- Teams can have no more than 2 Representative players per team with their maximum point value being 4 points per player.
- Teams can have no more than 2 players coming from a lower age group with their point value not exceeding 4 points per team.
- Teams that have a 4-point value player must be entered in A Grade.
- Bottom age players moving up are allocated half points for the summer season.
- Points for Sabres players will be allocated as follows:
. 1st team (4 points)
. 2nd team (3 points)
. 3rd Team (2 points)
. 4th and below teams (1 point)
The SBA is confident that these changes will have a positive influence on the competition and would like to thank the sub-committee for their efforts.
