Introduced in 2011, all JHIT games played at the Senior (Grade 9) level of play at the JHIT tournament only will the 3-point line and use a 30-second shot clock. This again is ONLY at the grade 9 level and not the grade 7-8.
The new tournament format which came into effect in 2010 will also continue in seeing a 12-team single game knockout format used (similar to the high school provincial championships) at all levels of the tournament. The original format used since the JHIT's inception in 1996 was a double game consolation style tournament. The 2010 change of seeing all tournament finals from the four levels of play held at one site location will be used again this year on Thursday March 27 at Tec Voc High School.
