Finals Information

It’s that time of the year again when we commence our Domestic Competition Finals!

After many seasons, we are finally able to host a normal finals structure for our competitions.

Round 1 Semi Finals

Saturday 26th March 2022 – Thursday 31st March 2022

Round 2 Grand Finals (Bronze Medal Matches U10’s & U12’s)

Saturday 2nd April 2022 – Thursday 7th April 2022

Grand Finals (Gold Medal Matches) will have 1 referee appointed onto the score bench to help and supervise the scoring. Each team is still expected to provide 1 scorer.

 

No Fill In Players are to be used in finals matches without written permission from MDBA Management. Players will not be able to be added courtside.

 

Playing an ineligible player in finals will mean the match is forfeited immediately and a $50.00 fine will be given to the offending team.

 

 

 

Finals Timing Rules

2x 18 Minute Halves

The clock will stop for the following:

  • All time outs
  • All whistles in the last 1 minute of the 1st half
  • All whistles in the last 3 minutes of the 2nd half and overtime

Time outs - during finals there will be 2 timeouts per half for each team for all age group competitions.

Overtime:

  • Commence with possession arrow.
  • 3 minutes
  • The clock stops on all whistles in the last 1 minute and time outs.
  • Each team may have 1 time out.
  • Team and Player fouls do not reset
  • If a winner is not decided after the overtime period, the ball will be thrown up in the centre circle and the match will be decided by golden point.

 

Unfortunately, the Monday Night Competition will need to use normal timing rules for Semi Finals due to the constraints of court space on the competition. The overtime rules will apply as each game needs a result.
