FIBA has adopted some rule changes for the start of the 2014 season. It is unclear at this time which leagues SABO services will adopt these changes. At this time the ACAC will implement the new rules. Stay tunes for updates on other leagues in Saskatchewan.
There is a ls a link below to a document presented at the FIBA world championship about 3 person mechanics. In regards to Mechanics slides 31-34 are very important. There are no “curtains” anymore in regards to coverage. As high level officials you must be comfortable in moving from Primary coverage to Secondary coverage and when to do so. The crew must get the call right but we still do not want to see 3 whistles on a foul call if possible (slide 33). This is a critical talking point for your pre-game.2014 FIBA Rule Changes
At the Canadian Association of Basketball Officials (CABO) AGM in the fall it was decided that the FIBA style shirt is the recommended shirt for all games in Canada. CABO asked the provinces to change to the new shirt by next year. The SABO executive has agreed and the new shirts are available for sale.
The order form below has a picture of the shirt. When you are ordering, they do fit big so please take this into account. Sizes available currently include small to XL so far and if you need a bigger size now please contact Dave Werry and he will see if I can get them in.SABO Uniform order form
