Game Rules – FIBA
Game Time Management:
Tournament play will often cause problems for scheduling due to the level of penalties, injuries or overtime. These new game time management rules are based on a proactive time management approach and will help to maintain the competitive aspects of the final minutes of our games while allowing officials to address time concerns directly and collaborate with coaches on specific situations to get schedules back in sync. To do this, coaches and officials must be aware of the actual time it takes to play each quarter or half. Quarters should take approximately 15 minutes to play, a half approximately 35. If teams are starting the second half more than 45 minutes after the initial start time, the game is likely going beyond the allotted time and these rules will allow officials to reasonably recover time.
An example of situations where officials should be proactive and make adjustments is when a first half takes more than 35 minutes to play prior to the half time break or when a game is starting late due to a time and subsequent overtime. In these cases, the official may have to consider one of the following scenarios;
Age of Participants:
We expect all teams to abide by this in fair play standards, tournament director will have final say as to issues.
Club Championship Rules
Teams participating and Competing in the Alberta Championship will complete against all teams in the tournament regardless of home province. Alberta teams that finish the highest in their divisions will be designated to play against the next highest Alberta finishing team within that division.
Example: If a team from Alberta and a team from BC compete in the tournament final, The next highest finishing Alberta team will have the option to play the top Alberta team in an all Alberta Final. We will give the teams as much rest time as possible to achieve a competitive game. Or the next highest finishing Alberta team will automatically be awarded 2nd.
