  • Miniball/basketball used to be termed a ‘non contact’ sport. It is now termed a ‘non collision sport’. It is a physical game however players should be taught to go for the ball, not the person. Learn and practice the appropriate offensive and defensive skills.
  • At the end of the game line up and shake hands with the other team and the referees.
