PostSubject: BCHSBBA March 17 AGM Motions   Tue Mar 06, 2012 3:53 pm

I. Resolution – Shot Clock

BE IT RESOLVED that the BCHSBBA adjust the re-set on the shot clock to reflect the fact that we are playing with a thirty second clock. Presently when the clock is below 14 it gets re-set back to 14 but that is based on a 24 second clock. To properly reflect a 30 second shot clock the re-set number should be 18 (17.5 rounded up to 18)
Moved: (Eberhardt – Palmer/Dockendorf - Maple Ridge)

II. Resolution – CHARGE CIRCLE
a) Whereas there is considerable concern among members regarding the new rule regarding the ‘charge circle’ that is scheduled to be implemented for the 2012-2013 season

AND
Whereas there is no evidence as to how effective the implementation of the ‘charge circle’ is in other parts of Canada
AND
Whereas there is some concern regarding the FIBA interpretation of the ‘charge circle’ rule and that of the NCAA with regards to the position of the defensive player’s feet
AND
Whereas basketball officials have voiced concern regarding the further variation in rules that would exist between boys and girls basketball

MOVED: (Ken Dockendorf – Maple Ridge/James Johnston – South Delta) BE IT RESOLVED that the date for implementation of the rule regarding the ‘charge circle’ be postponed until the 2013-2014 season to allow members of the Association to conduct a review of the advisability of such a rule.
III. Resolution – ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

a) Whereas the BCHSBBA intends that the greatest number of its members have the opportunity to attend the Annual General Meeting

AND
Whereas School Districts have established varying dates for Spring Break
AND
Whereas the BBC Fall Clinic dates coincide with the Provincial Professional Day and therefore coaches have funding available to them
AND
Whereas the fall date would provide equal opportunity for coaches from all tiers to attend the BCHSBBA AGM
AND
Whereas each Provincial Tournament would continue to hold coach’s meetings
AND
Whereas all financial reports would be completed by the date of the AGM in October
AND
Whereas the Fall Basketball Super Conference provides the greatest opportunity for the largest number of coaches to attend the BCHSBBA Annual General Meeting
MOVED: (Paul Eberhardt-R.C. Palmer Secondary School/Rich Ralston-W.J. Mouat Secondary School) BE IT RESOLVED that the BCHSBBA Annual General Meeting be scheduled for the Friday Provincial Professional Development Day in October.

IV. Resolution - DIRECTORS

a) Whereas there are ZERO (0) members of “A” and “AA” schools on the BCHSBBA Executive

AND
b) Whereas the “A” and “AA” tiers make up approximately 58% of BCHSBBA member schools

Be it resolved that the BCHBSBBA Executive be expanded to include two (2) new Members-at-Large
a) One Member-at-Large from an “A” school
b) One Member-at-Large from an “AA” school

Rationale:
1) Provides representation on the Executive from all member schools
2) Creates an interest in and knowledge of “A” and “AA” schools
3) New Executive members will act as liaisons for the “A” and “AA” tournaments
4) Create more ownerships for “A” and “AA” schools in the Association
5) Expands the pool of interested candidates for the BCHSBBA Executive

MOVED: (Bob Stebbings – Governor/ James Johnston - Executive)

V. Resolution – Section 9.01
BE IT RESOLVED that we remove section 9.02 of the rules section of the BCHSBBA constitution.

SECTION 9.02 (d) currently reads…
The Berthing Committee may vary the berthing slightly as determined by the formula in Section 9.03 if the committee determines by a motion passed by at least 75% of those present that it would be in the best interests of the Association to do so.

The following procedure will be used to deal with 9.02 (d):
- Zones will make written application to the Chair of the Berthing Committee no later than eight days prior to the Berthing Meeting.
- This application would include relevant scores and other information indicating why a zone should be considered for a chance at altering the berthing formula.
- Decisions on whether to invoke 9.02 (d) will be made at the Berthing Meeting. Zones failing to make advanced application will not be considered.
- The Executive Committee would make decisions on how a change in the berthing allocation would be accommodated (eg. Playoff game) once any request had been accepted

Rationale:
1. This section of our rules was added several years ago with much consultation from our membership and was designed to address a problem when one zone had the top two teams in BC. Unfortunately this clause is now being used for other agendas and it has opened the door for the potential to allow any teams into both zone and provincial tournaments.

2. The berthing formula has worked very well for our association in determining berths to our tournaments.

3. The philosophy of the BCHSBBA and BC School Sports has always been about geographical representation and representation by population
MOVED: (Eberhardt – Palmer/Coutts – Kitsilano)

VI. Resolution: Bylaws Part 2 Membership
BE IT RESOLVED that a new section be added to the BCHSBBA Constitution

2.09 (a) A school which is a member of the Association who formally threatens in writing to take legal action against the Association may be expelled by a majority vote of the directors of the association or through a special resolution passed at any general meeting of the Association

MOVED : (Eberhardt - RC Palmer/Lopez - Winston Churchill)


VII. Resolution - TIERING
Whereas there are approximately two hundred and seventy (250) BCSS member schools that field a senior boys basketball team

AND
Whereas the current three tiers (A, AA and AAA) present inequities that hinder fair and reasonable competition
AND
Whereas the establishment of four tiers (A, AA, AAA and AAAA) would provide greater opportunity for student-athletes and schools to experience success, including their participation in a Provincial championship
AND
Whereas the most equitable competition includes an equal a tiering structure whereby each tier has an equal number of teams
AND
Whereas the creation of a fourth tier of competition would not necessitate any change in league structures. Leagues can include more than one tier of competition (e.g., Richmond and Vancouver).
AND
Whereas four tiers would provide more opportunities for Student-Athletes to compete for BCHSBBA Championships

MOVED: (Paul Eberhardt-R.C. Palmer Secondary School/Rich Ralston-W.J. Mouat Secondary School) BE IT RESOLVED that the BCHSBBA expand to four tiers of competition (A, AA, AAA and AAAA) for the 2013-2014 basketball season.
CLARIFICATION:
1. Four tiers would allocate approximately 63 teams to each tier.
2. Schools would continue to be able to ‘play up’ to a higher tier but each school must declare their intentions for the next two (2) years beginning in January 2013.
3. Sites that may be considered for Provincial Championships are the Langley Event Centre, UBC, University of the Fraser Valley, Richmond Oval, Thompson Rivers University and Abbotsford Centre.
4. The long-term goal of the BCHSBBA is to host two championships at each site.
5. The last year that a tier was added to BCHSBBA was 1987.



VIII. Resolution – Division of the LMHSBBA (AAA) for the purpose of qualifiying
***please note this motion is under review by BCSS
BE IT RESOLVED that the Lower Mainland Zone be divided in to two separate zones for purposes of qualifying for the “AAA” Provincial Tournament.

Lower Mainland Zone A shall consist of Public “AAA” schools in The Richmond League, The Burnaby New-West League, and The Vancouver League.

Lower Mainland Zone B shall consist of “AAA” schools in The Lower Mainland Independent Secondary Schools League.

Both Zone A and Zone B of the Lower Mainland “AAA” Zone shall qualify for the “AAA” BC Tournament separately using the Associations berthing procedures as outlined in section 9 on the rules section of the BCHSBBA constitution
Moved – Eberhardt (RC Palmer) Seconded – Coutts (Kitsilano)

IX. Resolution – Proxy Voting (AGM)

BYLAWS, PART 4- PROCEEDINGS AT GENERAL MEETINGS

BE IT RESOLVED to remove section 4.12 of the Bylaws section of our constitution 4.12 voting by proxy is not permitted

AND replace 4.12 with the following:
Voting by proxy is permitted. Procedure for vote by proxy representation of a Member School is as follows: Proxy forms must be signed by both the Athletic Director and the Administrator of the Member School, and assigned only to a designated representative of a Member School in good standing who is a member of the same recognized local School Athletic Association. If a Member School cannot be a member of a local School Athletic Association the Member School can assign the proxy to the designated representative of any other Member School. The individual attending the meeting and Administrator of the Member School receiving the proxy must also sign the proxy form.

Rationale:
With teams located all around the Province it is often very difficult for member schools to have representation at Annual General Meetings of the Association. BC School Sports recognizes the right for members to assign a proxy if they are unable to attend the meeting. Allowing proxies will allow for greater membership participation in our association. The motion above reflects the wording that BC School Sports uses in their constitution.
MOVED – Eberhardt (RC Palmer), Seconded – Coutts (Kitsilano)

POINTS
a To provide more opportunities for student - athletes to compete for a BCHSBBA
championship. (*** our current 3 tier system has not changed for 26 years)

b To create a fairer tiering system than we currently use. Our berthing school numbers
for the 2011-2012 season have 61 schools competing for an A championship, 86 in
the AA tier and 103 schools in the AAA tier.

c The creation of a fourth tier of competition would not necessitate any change in league
structures. Leagues can include more than one tier of competition, there are many
examples of this now in Richmond and Vancouver. If a zone wanted to structure
their leagues so that only one tier of teams would play in a league, that is entirely up to
that zone.

d The fairest system is to have the same number of competing schools in each tier.

e Based on a splt of 25% of the total number of schools (250) per tier, for the 2011-
2012 season, the male population break points would be approximately:
(NB: we do not know the exact number of schools that would choose to move to a
higher tier, so these numbers would probably have some adjustments)
A 1 to 85 range (would result in about 62 schools per tier)
AA 86 to 199
AAA 200 to 299
AAAA 300 to 620

f The break-points suggested above are not meant to be exact as they do not take into
account any schools moving up to a higher tier or schools dropping their program for
that season. An interesting examination of Washington State tiering numbers shows
that the number of schools competing at each level is very similar to our proposed
splits of about 62.

g Find attached a list of all of the schools registered and counted for this yearʼs berthing.
It is organized in declining order of male population in grades 11 & 12.

h If a fourth tier was in effect for this year, these are some of the interesting changes that
would have occured.
For A-- Only one school would have been added (Pacific Christian).
There would be 62 schools competing.
Every school in the A Championship at Trinity this year would be the
same.
For AA- 24 schools at the highest population levels for AA would have changed
to the new 3A tier leaving still 62 schools competing for the AA trny.
5 schools currently in the AA Championship at Kamloops would not be
eligible, but would compete for the new 3A championship.
For AAA- The old AAA tier would have 40 less schools competing for its
championship, but would still have 62 schools competing for the 3Aʼs
For AAAA- The new AAAA tier would have 63 teams competing for its
championship

i There are currently 52 schools competing in our 3 championships
With the new fourth tier system there would be 64 schools competing in 4
championships. It has long been a goal of the current AAA Championship
Tournament to return to a 16 team format running from Wednesday - Saturday,
instead of the current 20 team format running from Tuesday - Saturday.

j In order to help establish continuity within tiers, the break-points would be established
for a two year period using the BCSS population numbers and the berthing school
numbers for the year prior to the first season of implementation. For example if our
first year of implementation was the 2013-2014 season, then the break-points would
be determined in January 2013.

k Use university gymnasiums or large community facilities. Only first class sites with
multiple gyms available are being considered.

l The main sites being considered are Langley Events Center, UBC, UFV, Richmond
Oval, TRU, and the Abbotsford Center.

m Long term goal of the BCHSBBA is to host two of our championships at each site
with each championship having 16 participants. It has been suggested that hosting 32
teams at a site is an impossible task. Not so, the AA championships in Kamloops
have been hosting two tournaments and 32 teams (16 boys & 16 girls teams) for
many years.

n A tournament committee to co-ordinate and organize the new tier has been
established and is ready to begin work on the preliminary organizational tasks. This
committee currently consists of Mr. Paul Eberhardt, Mr. Rich Ralston and Mr. Ken
Dockendorf, all very experienced tournament co-ordinatiors.

Well it should clear up any confusion for next years LM playoffs at the very least

and

V. Resolution – Section 9.01
BE IT RESOLVED that we remove section 9.02 of the rules section of the BCHSBBA constitution.


will provide the back door for the Saints or Irish. This spreads the "damage" (a team being bumped from the provincials to all zones) and not the LM in particular.

Sounds better than what we have right now.

Ron, I think a play-in spot or even a wildcard nominee(due to logistics) would be welcomed by all...public and private. Zone strength rotates every year. Imagine if Kelowna had lost to S.Kamloops...we'd be missing the number 1 seed in BC because of one game.

Lakehead(CIS #2), Saskatchewan(CIS #3) and Victoria(CIS #5)had great years, but all failed to earn spots into the Final 8. Luckily the CIS has one wildcard...it was awarded to Lakehead. They don't have a play-in, but a wildcard entry is better than nothing. Ryerson's victory over Lakehead was a huge blow to Canada West. We knew our 3rd place finisher would probably get the Wildcard if Carleton or Lakehead didn't lose in the OUA Final 4. Unfortunately it didn't work out for the West.

Luckily all the top teams are attending the BC's this year. Everyone's talking about how this might be the deepest field ever(WRCA is #14).

Has anyone noticed 2.09???
Holy cow...this is not some Banana Republic.
This is Canada and all parties always have recourse to the courts...how can anyone support that motion?
The majority cannot just run roughshod over minorities...fairness is always an issue and the courts are there to ensure it exists.
What if the majority decides coaches have to have a university degree? What if they decide only white guys can coach? What if they decide whatever the heck they want to restrict anyone's freedom???
I can't believe that this is even being proposed...what an embarassment!!

Why does this motion not include Lower Mainland "A" and "AA" Zone as well? Wouldn't it make sense for it to be the same regardless of what tier you are in?

What about if your "friend" got together with his other friends, ganged up on you, didn't follow the rules, perverted the rules and treated you unfairly. Wouldn't you want some method of recourse to regain your rights?

"Friends" don't behave like the LM does. Bullies do. This attempt to take away the legal right to sue is the act of a bully that has run out of excuses and wants to have it his way no matter what. In effect, they want to be judge, jury and executioner.

This whole notion of "friendship" is the LM playing the victim after they pushed Saints to the limit and forced them into seeking legal advice.

I believe that under Common Law in Canada, such a motion to take away a legal right, is, in and of itself, against the law. This right to legal recourse can not be contracted away unless it is replaced with another method of dispute resolution such as arbitration.

This ridiculous motion along with the plan to have 2 IND teams in a separate Zone exemplifies the type of behaviour that the IND are up against and why they need to have legal advice (if for nothing else but to show the LM, that seem to operate in a legal vacuum, why their bahaviour and motions don't stand up).

The removal of this clause must be considered in conjunction with the other motions proposed, in particular the one that would put the two IND teams in their own ZONE.

Contrary to spreading the damage, it zeros in on VC and Saints and any other single berth ZONES ability to both qualify for the BC's even IF THEY ARE BOTH TOP TEAMS IN THE PROVINCE .

Correct me if I am wrong, but if passed, the IND would no longer participate in the LM Zone tournament vying for the 5 berths there. They would be truly isolated and stuck in their own zone. However, as a zone, they would have one berth to the BC's. Removing clause 9.02, which contrary to Ebe's suggestion has somehow been abused in the recent debacle (when in fact it was 9.01 that applied) would take away any possibility that two IND teams could ever advance to the BC's, even if they were the top 2 in the province.

Is anyone getting sick of all these machinations yet? Is it clear what Mssrs. Ebe and Coutts are trying to achieve?

I must be missing something then.

They propose to get rid of 9.02..and replace it with..

- Zones will make written application to the Chair of the Berthing Committee no later than eight days prior to the Berthing Meeting - striaght forward..A team that thinks they deserve to make the tourney based on thier season compared to another teams needs but apply. Not sure how they will do it 8 days in advance however as likely any team that does deserve a chance to have their application considered will likely still be in zone playoffs.

- This application would include relevant scores and other information indicating why a zone should be considered for a chance at altering the berthing formula.- if a team in a the zone has a strong enough record (for example ranked 3-4) in BC I would guess their application can be considered.

- Decisions on whether to invoke 9.02 (d) will be made at the Berthing Meeting. Zones failing to make advanced application will not be considered. - a little fuzzy on just what this means as just previous to proposing these changes they stated "V. Resolution – Section 9.01- BE IT RESOLVED that we remove section 9.02 of the rules section of the BCHSBBA"

- The Executive Committee would make decisions on how a change in the berthing allocation would be accommodated (eg. Playoff game) once any request had been accepted - provides an opportunity for a second berth (one way or another) to the applying team.

And of course these rules apply to all teams in all zones including the new LM zone B. Actually, as a two team zone they probably could finish thier playoffs ahead of the eight day period.

The interesting (good) thing about this is that if all remains the same, the LM A will still have 27 teams giving them their five berths again and the LM B will add one berth. To me that is a good thing as another group of kids get to play in the big dance.

Yes Ron, you did. The proposal is to get rid of 9.02 all together. No chance of a 2nd berth to single berth zones.

Ok fair enough..I thought they wanted to get rid of 9.02 and replace it with what I highlighted. I guess not. Thanks guys for the clarification.
