Modernism and Basketball

Two similar visions to improve society

At the end of the 19th century, two movements appeared almost simultaneously in the world. Modernism (also known in other latitudes as Art Nouveau, Modern Style or Glasgow Style, Jugendstil, Sezession, Liberty, etc.) and Basketball that Canadian professor James Naismith invented for the world from the YMCA in Springfield (USA)

That is why we have found it interesting to merge this new maxibasket tournament with the Fira Modernista de Terrassa.

This tournament is organized by the Basketball Section of the Club Natació Terrassa and the Fundación Seguimos Jugando. It is part of the Keep Playin’ Tour.

In future editions, the tournament is open to all maxibasket categories:

Female: +30, +35, +40, +45, +50, +55, +60 and +65
Male: +35, +40, +45, +50, +55, +60, +65 + 70, +75 and +80

However, for this initial edition, we will group the categories in + 35 and + 45 for both girls and boys.

The registration fee for teams is €180 plus €25 for each member of the team registered. Teams must have a minimum of 9 members between players and coaches. There is no maximum limit of components per team, but only 12 players may line up per match.

As a result of the collaboration agreement signed by the Fundación Seguimos Jugando with NBN23, all the matches of the competition will be managed through this technological platform that incorporates, among many other things, the electronic record of the matches, and the Swish app for online monitoring of all of them.

The tournament will take place at the facilities of the Club Natació Terrassa in the Zona Olímpica de Terrassa.

Tournament Rules

All matches will be played under FIMBA rules with the following exceptions drawn from the following points.
The decisions of the organizing committee are decisive in all matters and can change or modify any rule or regulation at the time for the benefit of the smooth running of the tournament.

It is the team’s responsibility to show up for warm-up on Center Court at half-time from the previous match.
The proposed start times in the published schedules are indicative only.
Failure by a team to start a match on time may result in a sanction and the match will be considered won by the opposing team.
All matches must be completed within the allotted 75 minute time frame.
Teams will be given a courtesy time of 5 minutes to field a minimum of 5 players to start the match with. If this is not the case, the match will be considered lost by 2-0 and a point will be deducted from the classification.
In the event that a team goes with less than five players, they will be mixed with a player from the opposing team in order to be able to play a friendly match. THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO PLAY. This friendly match will be led by the referees indicated. Players may join the match at any time during the match, after presenting themselves to the table official.

Game time:
Each game will be played in 4 quarters of 10 minutes on the clock. The last two minutes of the last quarter will be stopped clock
Each team will have 4 timeouts of 1 minute per game, one in each quarter. Times not arranged in previous quarters will not be accumulated
On the playing court, there will be 5 minutes of warm-up and the break will be a maximum of 5 minutes.
All matches must be completed within a 75-minute time slot. In the case of accumulation of delay, the organizing committee can make the decision to modify the match time if necessary.

Tied matches:
If a match ends in a tie, the five players from each team who are on the court at the end of the match will take a free throw each. The team that has scored the highest number of baskets will be considered the winner. If the game is still tied after each team has taken their free throws, its result will be decided in a sudden death with the same players shooting free throws. For qualifying purposes, the result of the match will be that of the tie plus one point for the winning team in the free throw shooting.

Players will be disqualified for their fifth personal foul.
Teams will be on “bonus” in each quarter once they reach 4 team fouls.

Each team will play their matches according to the published schedule.

The classification will be established based on the results by category.

Tie Breaks:
If 2 teams end up tied on points, this phase will resolve the tie by the result of the match of those involved.
If more than two teams are tied on points, their classification will be established based on the following criteria:
1/ The points obtained in the matches played between them, classifying in first place, the one that adds more points.
2/ Highest difference of goals for and against in the sum of the matches played between them.
3/ Highest number of goals scored in one of the matches played between them.

In all categories, the participation of two players per team up to two years younger than the age of the category will be allowed on the track simultaneously. All players must prove their date of birth. The organization may require such accreditation at any time throughout the championship. The detection of players below the allowed age will lead to the elimination of the entire team.
