2020 Fall Cohort League Guidelines


Oct. 19, 2020


2020 Fall Cohort Members

I just wanted to offer a few safety based reminder as we begin play for this cohort season:

  • Cohort Slots are 3 hours, all teams should show up for the beginning of the slot and remain there until the end of the slot. Cohort members should remain on the court for the duration of the timeslot. Loitering in the hallways is not permitted, however if you need to use the washrooms that is permitted.
  • In the community spirit, teams should work together to score keep the games (there are always two teams not playing who could help keep score.
  • Spectators are currently NOT ALLOWED at the Saville Centre, we are trying to work with Saville to make an exception.
  • Masks must be worn in the Saville Community Sports Centre by all attendees when in the common spaces of the facility. These spaces include the front entrance, facility hallways, storage rooms and washrooms.  Masks can be removed upon entering the booked space (gymnasium, activity room, classroom and boardroom).  Coaches, instructors, training staff, etc. must wear a mask at all times even in their activity space unless they are actively participating in the activity. 
  • Cohort members should have their event participation waivers complete prior to gameplay
  • Coaches/associations are responsible for ensure that the daily attestation forms are completed each day the cohort is active
  • Coaches/associations are responsible to keep track of trace logs that EYBA may request if there is an outbreak/incident
  • Coaches should have all Parent Contact Information in case of emergency
  • Saville has many touchless sanitization stations that everyone should utilize throughout the day
  • Teams should bring lysol wipes (or other antibacterial wipe) to sanitize the ball throughout the session
  • Players should know what time their session starts and what court it is on before they arrive at the Saville Centre
  • EYBA is not concerned with personal statistics during this season. Players can get by without jersey numbers or numbered pinnies. Coaches however will be expected to identify guilty parties if discipline issues arise.
  • If a player is not involved in the current activity (basketball game, drill, etc), we ask that they please put their mask on to enhance the safety protocols of the Saville Centre.

Game Structure U13/U15/U18

  • 2 x 16 minute run time halves. Stop Time last 2 minutes of second half if score within 12
  • 1 x 30 second timeout per half
  • Half Time 2 minutes
  • Shooting fouls within the first 30 minutes of run time gameplay will result in automatic 1 point and retained possession, two points and change of possession on the 8th foul (per half).
  • If a shooting foul is assessed on a made basket, the basket is counted and an automatic 1 point is given and change of possession takes place
  • Personal Fouls will not be tallied
  • Shooting fouls in the last 2 minutes (if in stop time) will need to be taken as per regular FIBA rules. If stop time not established, refer to the above rule.

  • 5 x 3 minute run time shifts per half (2 minute half time), Stop Time last 2 minutes of second half if score within 10
  • The Final 3 minute shift of the 2nd half is still at the coaches discretion as to which four players are on the court
