ORGANISING COMMITTEE

RULES
FIBA rules will be used. However, some exceptions might be made regarding the timing of games in the preliminary round, taking into account the number of participants registered in each division.

ANTI-DOPING POLICY
The 1st World Outgames endorses a healthy and fair approach to sports training and competition. Sport events in the 1st World Outgames are sanctioned by provincial, national, and in some cases, international sports governing bodies. In order to adhere to the rules of these sporting federations and to guarantee that the Outgames are run in a fair and just manner, GLISA and the Outgames have adopted the policy as set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Consequently, all athletes competing in the 1st World Outgames must adhere to GLISA’s position on drugs in sport and may be required to undergo drug-testing. We encourage all participants to become familiar with this policy.
 
POLICY ON TRANSITIONED AND TRANSGENDER ATHLETES

The objective of the 1st World Outgames in this regard is to provide an experience where all athletes are able to compete in a safe and welcoming environment, without discrimination of any kind. Our priority is to find the appropriate balance to ensure that no person, regardless of their birth gender, is disadvantaged in athletic competition and at the same time that no person participating in the Outgames experiences discrimination.

GLISA and the 1st World Outgames have collaborated so as to develop a policy that reflects this balance. We encourage all participants, especially those who have identified themselves as ‘transgender’ in the registration process, to become familiar with this policy.

COMPETITION FORMAT
Teams can register in one of the following two divisions:

. Women
. Men

A participant can only register on ONE team and a team can only register in only ONE division. Teams will have a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 15 players. Women may register for a mixed team, but all mixed teams will compete in the Men's division.
