The following was voted on and passed at the AGM:
There was some confusion around appeals. The following changes was made to the constitution:
Motion: That Section 3.3 of the MBA Constitution & By-Laws be changed to read, 3.3 Any player, coach, manager, team or club suspended by the MBA shall have the right to appeal any suspension above and beyond the standard suspensions set out in section 18.9 of the “Metro Basketball Association Rules of Play” document to the Appeals Committee. The suspension must continue to be served until such time as the appeal is heard, the appeal shall be heard by the MBA within a timely fashion
Motion: That Section 3.3.1 be added to the MBA Constitution & By-Laws and shall read, Appeals may not be made on game officials judgement.
Clarification was added to rule 11.6 and 12.9 which dealt with a team retreating back following a score in U10 and U12.
Motion: That Section 11.6 and 12.9 of the MBA Rules of Play be changed to read, No Full Court Defence - After a made basket, or dead ball in the front court, the team now going on defense must retreat back to the 3 point line area in their own back court until the opposing team crosses half court. In the case where there is no 3 point line, the top of the key area should be used. After a defensive team violation, the offensive team will be permitted to inbound the ball in their own backcourt, regardless of the spot of the violation.
Motion: That Section 11.6.1 and 12.9.1 be added to the MBA Rules of Play and read, Should the defending team violate the rule and the official stops the game, the ensuing throw-in will take place at the top of the three point line (or key if not three point line) in the offensive teams back court.
All of the above mention motions passed at the AGM.
Congratulations to all MBA teams on the completion of a successful 2018/19 season. Good luck in your post season tournaments!!
