Hi all PLEASE NOTE: Our weekly game and individual results input and uploading to our webpage has been delayed due to our volunteers having "paid jobs" and their end of financial year workload. All should be back to normal by the end of this week. We do apologise as we understand this is frustrating, however we appreciate your patience and understanding. :)

Well it seems our posts on RULES has created some good conversations, so we will over the next few days be posting more information for our players to read and think about as move into our final series. 33.3. Legal guarding position A defensive player has established an initial legal guarding position when: • He is facing his opponent, and • He has both feet on the floor. The legal guarding position extends vertically above him (cylinder) from the floor to the ceiling. He may raise his arms and hands above his head or jump vertically but he must maintain them in a vertical position inside the imaginary cylinder. 33.4. Guarding a player who controls the ball When guarding a player who controls (holding or dribbling) the ball, the elements of time and distance do not apply. The player with the ball must expect to be guarded and must be prepared to stop or change his direction whenever an opponent takes an initial legal guarding position in front of him, even if this is done within a fraction of a second. The guarding (defensive) player must establish an initial legal guarding position without causing contact before taking his position. Once the defensive player has established an initial legal guarding position, he may move to guard his opponent, but he may not extend his arms, shoulders, hips or legs to prevent the dribbler from passing by him. When judging a charge/block situation involving a player with the ball, an official shall use the following principles: • The defensive player must establish an initial legal guarding position by facing the player with the ball and having both feet on the floor. • The defensive player may remain stationary, jump vertically, move laterally or backwards in order to maintain the initial legal guarding position. • When moving to maintain the initial legal guarding position, one foot or both feet may be off the floor for an instant, as long as the movement is lateral or backwards, but not towards the player with the ball. • Contact must occur on the torso, in which case the defensive player would be considered as having been at the place of contact first. • Having established a legal guarding position the defensive player may turn within his cylinder to avoid injury. In any of the above situations, the contact shall be considered as having been caused by the player with the ball.
Art. 47 Officials: Duties and powers 47.1 The officials shall have the power to make decisions on infractions of the rules committed either within or outside the boundary line including the scorer's table, the team benches and the areas immediately behind the lines. 47.2 The officials shall blow their whistles when an infraction of the rules occurs, a period ends or the officials find it necessary to stop the game. The officials shall not blow their whistles after a successful field goal, a successful free throw or when the ball becomes live. 47.3 When deciding on a personal contact or violation, the officials shall, in each instance, have regard to and weigh up the following fundamental principles: • The spirit and intent of the rules and the need to uphold the integrity of the game. • Consistency in application of the concept of 'advantage/disadvantage'. The officials should not seek to interrupt the flow of the game unnecessarily in order to penalise incidental personal contact which does not give the player responsible an advantage nor place his opponent at a disadvantage. • Consistency in the application of common sense to each game, bearing in mind the abilities of the players concerned and their attitude and conduct during the game. • Consistency in the maintenance of a balance between game control and game flow, having a 'feeling' for what the participants are trying to do and calling what is right for the game. 47.4 Should a protest be filed by one of the teams, the referee (commissioner, if present) shall, within 1 hour following the end of playing time, report the protest to the organising body of the competition. 47.7 Each official has the power to make decisions within the limits of his duties, but he has no authority to disregard or question decisions made by the other official(s). 47.8 Decisions made by the officials are final and cannot be contested or disregarded.
FIBA rules on Post play: The principle of verticality (cylinder principle) applies also to post play. The offensive player in the post position and the defensive player guarding him must respect each other's rights to a vertical position (cylinder). It is a foul by an offensive or defensive player in the post position to shoulder or hip his opponent out of position or to interfere with his opponent's freedom of movement using extended arms, shoulders, hips, legs or other parts of the body. 33.13. Illegal guarding from the rear Illegal guarding from the rear is personal contact with an opponent, by a defensive player, from behind. The fact that the defensive player is attempting to play the ball does not justify his contact with an opponent from the rear. 33.14. Holding Holding is illegal personal contact with an opponent that interferes with his freedom of movement. This contact (holding) can occur with any part of the body.
Hi all - a reminder: :) FIBA rule on Guarding a player who does not control the ball A player who does not control the ball is entitled to move freely on the playing court and take any position not already occupied by another player. When guarding a player who does not control the ball, the elements of time and distance shall apply. A defensive player cannot take a position so near and/or so quickly in the path of a moving opponent that the latter does not have sufficient time or distance either to stop or change his direction. The distance is directly proportional to the speed of the opponent, but never less than 1 normal step. If a defensive player does not respect the elements of time and distance in taking his initial legal guarding position and contact with an opponent occurs, he is responsible for the contact. Once a defensive player has established an initial legal guarding position, he may move to guard his opponent. He may not prevent him from passing by extending his arms, shoulders, hips or legs in his path. He may turn within his cylinder to avoid injury.
