General Information

  • Official FIBA Rules can be accessed via this link

Tournament Format

  • The basketball competition will take a round robin format
  • To determine the overall positions, points will be allocated as follows:

Win = 4 points

Draw = 2 points

Defeat = 1 point

League Table Tie Breakers

  • Head to head result
  • Goal difference against tied teams
  • Goals scored against tied teams
  • Goal difference against all teams
  • Goals scored against all teams

In the event that teams are still tied in positions which affect the top three positions, teams will play an additional 5 minute game one way, beginning with a jump ball. If at the end of 5 minutes, scores are level, a further period should be played with the ‘next basket’ wins.


All FIBA rules apply and to clarify:

  • Each game starts with a jump ball, with subsequent ‘jump balls’ and restarts becoming alternate possession on sideline at half court
  • 8 seconds to bring the ball over half way and a 24 second shot clock to be employed
  • ‘Back court violation’ to be enforced
  • 3 seconds in the key to be enforced
  • 4 team fouls per quarter leading to bonus shots (shoot on the fifth team foul)
  • 5 personal fouls leads to player ejection
  • Substitutions to be made on any stoppage except basket scored

The following FOBISIA variations will be applied to the game:

  • Games will consist of 4 x 6 minute quarters.
  • There will be a running clock except for shooting fouls, during the last minute of each half a stop clock will be used, with the clock stopping on every whistle.
  • There will be a  maximum of 1 x 45 sec time out per half. The clock will be stopped during these time outs.
  • A ‘30 point mercy rule’ to be applied, whereby the game continues but the score is recorded at that point for league records. Such a mercy rule should, ethically, have been preceded by the winning school’s coach already having, for example, ceased to play a pressing game and also to have substituted the better players (starters). No team therefore may win by a margin greater than 30 points.
  • A size 6 ball to be used for all competitions.

Tables will be run:

  • Visible Score Board
  • Game Clock
  • Shot Clock
  • Subs
  • Time Outs
  • Fouls
  • Squads of 15 players
  • 2 coaches per team is commended
  • Teams to have 2 kits number 4 upwards


  • The top three teams in the league will each receive a trophy with team members receiving a medal each
