Due to the current temperatures, Basketball Victoria and the MUVJBL wishes to advise everyone about our rules of operation in regard to heat within the venue for MUVJBL games.
When the court temperature reaches 30C the Venue Supervisor must consider implementing and where the court temperature reaches 35C, must implement the following timing rules:
The referee must call an additional compulsory timeout in each quarter if no timeout has been called by half way through the quarter.
When the court temperature reaches 40C games must be abandoned.
Timing regulations must be placed on the score bench by the association hosting the matches.
Further information on MUVJBL Rules of Operation for associations and interested parties is available here.
