Hi Team Reps,
As a reminder wearing masks is mandatory for anyone not playing, this means they must be worn at all times on the bench.
Benches are limited to players and coaches, and cannot exceed 10 individuals collectively. No interchanging. No spectators. These are new rules, and strange to all of us, but compliance is necessary for us all playing basketball. I trust you will help us facilitate this.
Thanks for your continued cooperation, with everyone’s vigilance we can get through this.

 League Guidelines


Call-Up Players

  • Must communicate to your respective convenor your intention to call up a player (please do so ASAP).
  • Call-ups must be from a lower division (or same division if no lower).
  • Call-ups can play for each team a maximum of 3 games per season.
  • Call-ups outside of the league are permitted, if they are up-to-date with their NLBA insurance fee, and have been deemed acceptable to play by the League (email the league prior).
  • Any player playing in violation of these rules will result in a forfeit for their team. Please ask if anything is unsure.


Adding/Replacing Players

  • Must communicate to your respective convenor prior to the individual playing.
  • Roster additions are not permitted after your team has played three games. 
  • A player can be replaced on the roster after the three-game deadline, if the player being replaced is unavailable to play because of health, or away for work/school. This must be approved by the League.   


Forfeiting Games

  • Please give maximum notice if you are unable to field a full team.
  • In fairness to your opponent, we ask that teams make best efforts to secure adequate players as the Summer season is short, thus each missed game is a significant portion of the season.
  • If you foresee your team being short, please either add players to your roster, or secure call-ups in advance.
  • If you are unable to secure players that meet the call-up standards, you are permitted to “call-down” someone from a higher division in order to field 5 players, but this should be seen as the last option, as it will result in a forfeit.
