SENIOR PLAYER EXEMPTION

SUPERCATS GBL EXEMPTION POLICY

It is a requirement for all VJBL, BigV and NBL1 players (outside of marquee players) to play in the Geelong Basketball League (GBL).  Furthermore it is a requirement of all Junior Representative Players to compete in a minimum number of games to qualify for finals in their own age group in order to qualify for finals in any other age group in GBL competitions (BG Bylaws 7.5).

Players that believe they are entitled to, or require an exemption from this rule need to complete the online Exemption Request.  Exemptions are not automatically granted and players should continue to participate in the GBL until notified that an exemption is granted or denied.

In general, to be eligible for an exemption, players must have an aggregated total of five or more points using the following table.
The Exemption Committee (Competitions Manager, Director of Pathways & Development, COO & CEO) will consider all reasons for a possible exemption on a  case by case basis.
