Tribunal

A Referee’s Guide to Tribunals

Basketball Victoria has passed Tribunals By-laws to prescribe the manner in which reports are made and the matters then heard by a Tribunal. There are Tribunals established across the state.

The By-laws are made for the protection of all participants in basketball. There is particular emphasis in the offences under the By-laws on protection of officials, with considerably heavier penalties for offences committed against officials.
