Learn to Play Programs: These programs are 8 week sessions for adults 16+. The intention behind these programs is to give adults the confidence to join a league or play spontaneously during our drop in programs. These classes would be running out of Terwillegar Rec Centre, The Meadows Rec Centre, Commonwealth Rec Centre, St.FX Sports Centre, and Clareview Rec Centre.
FIBA RULE CHANGES (starting this season): Unsportsmanlike foul - To gain more clarity on when to call an unsportsmanlike foul and protect the dynamics of the game in transition.
New wording: An unsportsmanlike foul is a player contact foul which, in the judgement of an official, is:
• Excessive, hard contact caused by a player in an effort to play the ball or an opponent.
• Contact by the defensive player with no legitimate attempt to directly play the ball within the spirit and intent of the rules causing an unnecessary contact in order to stop the fast break or the progress of the offensive team in transition. This applies until the offensive player begins the act of shooting.
FIBA RULE CHANGES (starting this season): Game disqualification - The game disqualification is now also valid for 1 technical foul and 1 unsportsmanlike foul.
Changes: A player shall also be disqualified for the remainder of the game when he is charged with 1 technical and 1 unsportsmanlike foul. A player coach shall also be disqualified for the remainder of the game when he is charged with 2 technical fouls against his person where 1 of these fouls may also be an unsportsmanlike foul against him as a player.
