GRADE 1 AND 2 PRIMARY SCHOOL COMPETITION

We are pleased to announce that in 2017 the Grade 1 and 2 Primary School competitions will run full 40 minute games with 2 referees. We believe that this allows young players to learn the rules of the game and allows more court time. As a result of this change, the Grade 1 and 2 program will be full fee paying in line with all other junior competitions and will not be pre-paid as they were in 2016. This program will not have finals or a ladder.

 

REPRESENTATIVE PLAYER RULE

MDBA has unlimited MUVJBL (Breakers) representative players across all divisions. Teams can have unlimited registered MUVJBL players but will be graded by the MDBA over a 3 week grading phase.

 

GRADING

Season 2 of 2017 will not have a 3 week grading period. Teams will initially be graded based on their previous season’s results. The MDBA reserves the right to re-grade teams at any stage during the season to ensure a fair and equitable competition. Any queries or concerns regarding grading should be directed to the Operations Manager at the commencement of the Season. manager@morningtonbasketball.com.au
