Pink Pirates 2014 S2 Div 2 Winners

Pink Pirates 2014 S2 Div 2 Winners

The contributions of duty teams and umpires were once more recognised and a big thank you went out to Sylvester for his continuing efforts in setting up the equipment each week and Andrew for providing us with game highlights on Facebook all season. We were fortunate again this season to have 8 (reasonably) solid teams with a thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, the Board for keeping the competition running smoothly, THAC for providing us with the equipment and the opportunity to play and lastly Jose, for once again providing us with nibbles & drinks last night. We’ll chalk the lack of sushi down to the ever expanding ripples of the Government’s budget cuts ;-).

The planning for 2015 has been drafted and in its current state is similar to that of 2014. 1 Come & Try night on 5 Feb, Season 1 start on 12 Feb and finish on 4 Jun, Social Competition (same 3 round format) 18, 25 Jun and 2 Jul, and finally a Season 2 start on 16 Jul and finish on 19 Nov. Additional breaks will be 9 April (Easter), 11 Jun and 9 Jul book-ending the Social Competition, 1 Oct (16 & U Boy’s Water Polo Nat Sep 28 – Oct 4) and the usual 22 Oct (Show Day). It’s all still in the planning stage, so feedback (via email or website) on this from members, as well as on alternative breaks more in line with school terms, would be greatly appreciated. We can’t accommodate every schedule, but we can try.

To assist in planning, it would also be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether their team will continue to play next season. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with John whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better.

Thank you all for another great season, hope to see you in the pool again in 2015, and have a great Christmas & New Year!

Rule Highlight of the Week

As mentioned last week, this week we’ll be highlighting the Fill-In Regulations, which are applicable during the Finals period of the season.

During that time, teams may not use fill-ins from other teams or non-registered players and may not field additional male players from the same team should there be less than 3 females available. To play in the Finals, a player must be registered and have played with a team at least 3 games before he/she is allowed to play for that team in the Finals. Note, that if a forfeit occurred, all players registered at the time of that game will be considered as having played that game (3.4.1).

When a team has less than 6 players (registered with that team) available to play during Finals and the missing player(s) cannot play due to medical reasons (a medical certificate must be presented to a Board member before the game), replacement fill-in(s) may be used regardless of whether they have played the minimum of 3 games with that team (6.7.1).

Any proposed deviations from the above will need to be discussed with the opposing Captain and at least one Board member as early as possible before the game (e.g. via email days before). Should the opposing team not agree with the suggested changes, then that stands and should not be subject to further objections.

Rule Highlight of the Week

With the Finals in sight, a number of Regulations become relevant. For example, as described in Section 3.4; a player must be registered and have played with a team at least 3 games before he/she is allowed to play for that team in the Finals, unless prior arrangements have been made with the Board. If a forfeit occurred, all players registered at the time of that game will be considered as having played that game.

Round 14 next week, which will be the last regular round before the start of the finals. More about the rules around finals team compositions then.

Rule Highlight of the Week

As outlined in Section 5 of the Regulations all substitutions as well as entering the pool during game time (e.g. late arrival) must take place through the “Interchange” area. This is along the sideline in the center of the game pool.

Entering the field of play pool in any other manner typically receives a warning during game time or break and can subsequently result in a minor foul, which means a turn over to be taken from the half-way line. The offending player must leave the field, play continues and re-enter through the interchange area.
