20. The use of Zone Defence in U12/U14 is not allowed. Zone Defence is defined as being any defence in the half court which does not incorporate normal man to man defensive principles. The host association will appoint an observer (“Zone Buster”) who will be called upon only by the Match Manager to adjudicate on an issue which has been raised. Only the Match Manager may call upon the observer and only then, if the Match Manager is satisfied that the allegation is based on a genuine belief that Zone Defence was being played. If the observer is satisfied that Zone Defence has been played, the Match Manager will be advised and that person will issue an official warning to the offending coach. Offenders will be entitled to one warning only, for the duration of this specific event. Should there be a further transgression during the same event whether it be during the same or a subsequent match, the Match Manager will request the referees
(through the Scoretable Chair) to charge the offending coach with a Technical Foul and from that point on, during the match in progress and all future matches in the particular event, normal Technical Foul penalties will apply.

Presentations will be held after each Grand Final.
We encourage teams to stay and support the Grand Finals in each division.
