18. The use of Zone Defence is not allowed in this age group. 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.

19. The top 3 teams in Division 1 from each regional event will be invited to participate in the State Finals on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December in Launceston.

20. Each team must supply a referee for the tournament who will be required to officiate at least 4
games during the weekend. These games may not be the games that the team plays in, each
nominated Referee will liaise with the referee co-ordinator in the week prior to the tournament
regarding their skills and availability. The referee will be placed on games that match these
requirements. Referees can still request preference to officiate the games that a specific team plays
in, but will not be guaranteed these appointments.

Teams are required to negotiate remuneration with their referee for these 4 games, if the referee
agrees to complete additional games to the above requirements BTAS will pay the official BTAS rate
for any additional games.

Teams who are unable to fulfil the above requirement can elect to pay BTAS an additional fee of
$165 (inc. GST). BTAS will then assume all responsibility for the teams referee requirements.
Teams are required to contact their preferred referee prior to completing the team entry form and
must complete all details on the entry form for their Referee, including full name, email address and
phone number, failure to do so will result in the additional fee being invoiced to the team.

A single referee can be nominated for a maximum of 3 teams, with the requirement being that they
will referee at least 4 games per team.
