As of October 1, 2010, FIBA has released new rules that are to be implemented for the 2011-2012 season. For the full FIBA rule book please click here.

For the 2011-2012 season federation numbering will be permitted at all Ontario Basketball sanctioned games events. It is recommended that any team intending to acquire new uniforms should only purchase FIBA approved numbering.  FIBA approved numbers are 4-15; should your team have more than 12 players on the roster, the numbers 21-23 are also permissible.

To clarify the issue of undergarments under the playing uniform, clubs should note that t-shirts are permitted to be worn under playing jerseys as long as they match the dominant colour of the jersey. Undergarments that extend below the shorts may be worn as long as they are of the same dominant colour of the shorts. The same rule will apply to body suits with tight fitting long sleeves worn under the playing jersey.
