2020 Representative Trials

2 Oct

If you or someone you know thinks you have what it takes and wants to represent Franklin in our first representative season as an affiliated BBNZ association make sure you check out the trial information in the below poster and get registered!

Who can trial for FBA:

Any player living or attending school in Franklin or has played for Franklin in the past may represent the Franklin Basketball Association at official qualifiers and BBNZ competitions. This includes regional champs/qualifiers, and National Championships. (SEE MAP FOR BOUNDARY LINES).

New Age Eligibility Criteria: Age Definitions for BBNZ National Tournaments- Changes commencing 2020 Season

From 2020 BBNZ will adjust its age definitions to fall in line with FIBA (and with almost all other sporting codes in New Zealand). This means that players in, for example, an under 13 team or event will be able to turn 13 in the year of the event – in effect under 13 will mean 13 and under. This will have the effect of moving all age limits up by one year – see below.

For Under 15 competitions, players must be aged either 13, 14 or 15 years as at 31 December in the year in which the competition is held;

For Under 17 competitions, players must be aged either 15, 16 or 17 years as at 31 December in the year in which the competition is held.

For Under 19 competitions, players must be aged at least 15 years on the first day that the competition commences, and must not be over 19 years as at 31 December in the year the competition is held. BBNZ, on application by an Affiliated Association, and in its sole discretion, may allow any player selected for a New Zealand national team who is under 15 years of age, to play in an Under 19 competition.
