As you know we have all been working to create a better alignment for our game in Canada and two of those aspects are the FIBA rules and officiating.  The Canadian Basketball Officials Commission (CBOC) has worked with CABO to ensure the message across the country is consistent for all coaches and officials moving forward.  We trust that the attached information will serve as a great help in this regard.

More information will be shared and questions / interpretations will be discussed at the MABO clinics scheduled for this fall.

Please note that all rule changes come effective October 1, 2018 and no time sooner.
