Uncharted Waters :eek:

I know this won't get many responses, but here goes.

At a tournament this weekend, we will be using the new 3-person mechanics developped by FIBA. It should be interesting, I've never used them before.

Refereeing around here is confusing at times. With this new experiment, I am now responsible to distinguish:

1. FIBA 2-person w/ modifications (HS and below)
2. FIBA 3-person w/ modifications (Canada Games teams)
3. FIBA 2-person w/ different modifications (college women)
4. NCAA 2-person w/ modifications (college men, this one is interesting cause officially there are no such mechanics!)
5. NCAA 3-person w/ modifications (university men)

This is typically Canadian (trying to please everyone)!
Is refereeing this complicated anywhere else?

What's the diff between college men and university men?

Only in volleyball.

Re: Re: Uncharted Waters :eek:

Colleges are smaller than universities and don't attract the same level of talent. Good Canadian University teams would compete w/ DII and some DI schools. I don't know what to compare good college teams with (maybe DIII or JUCO's?).

A college education is also less expensive and they tend to offer shorter curriculums. They could be a stepping stone towards University.

The men play basically the same rules (NCAA w/ modifications) but colleges (around here) have more modifications. The college games are very challenging as the athletes are just as quick and sometimes equally skilled yet they only use 2 referees (it's a real good run!)

Women is a completely different story. I'd explain but after talking about this I reminded myself I have a lot of manuals/rules to read...so I must go
