Like last year, the awards for both this season and season 2 of the 2018-19 financial year will be handed out during the Winter Water Basketball Dinner on Saturday the 15th of June 2018 (see the Water Basketball Planner for the full 2018-19 schedule).

However, we wouldn’t want keep you in the dark until then with regards to the achievements of this season. Congratulations to the Championship winners of Division 1, The Nuts and of Division 2, Clownfish. A big congratulations also to the winners of the Individual Awards.

2018-19 Season 1:

  • Best & Fairest Female: Anna Harris (Brothers)
  • Best & Fairest Male: Sam Scandrett (Beached Az)
  • Most improved Female: Natalie Wren (Clownfish)
  • Most improved Male: Steve Harwin (The Sisters)

The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season.

Jemma Dazeley (The Nuts) is becoming the new regular top scorer, convincingly taking the number 1 spot on the top scorers ladder with 276 points. Tony Edmondson (The Nuts) ended up second with 233 points and Sam Scandrett (Beached Az) in third spot with 216 points.

As usual, I’d like to take a moment here to recognise the contributions of duty teams, captains, umpires and board members! Without everyone’s help and enthusiasm we wouldn’t be able to keep this competition running. A small effort on everyone’s part constitutes a significant result for everyone to enjoy. As always Sylvie’s help with setting up equipment & duty and Andrew’s contributions to our Facebook page are appreciated as well. We were fortunate again this season to have 8 solid teams, so a special thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, particularly with the added membership fee collection effort, and the Board for their work behinds the scenes.

After the Christmas break, we’ll kick the 2018-19 second season off with a Come & Try night on 31 January, followed by the first round on the 7th of Feb. For the full season’s schedule, as usual, check the Roster page.

To assist in planning, it would be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether they continue as Captains and whether their team will need help with finding new players. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with Tony whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better. Captains will need to submit their team registration sheets by February 1st at the latest (start with confirmed players only; it’s easier to add than to remove when doing the Stats).

New/interested players are encouraged to attend the Come & Try night on 31 Jan and/or send us an email with your inquiry through our enquiry form. The usual notification and poster will make its way onto the website and into DKHAC in the lead up to the night as well.

Thank you all for another great season; hopefully you’ll have a great Christmas break and much health and happiness in 2019! 🙂

The Semi Finals roster has been published on the Roster page.

Weekly Rule Highlight

The duration of the game, breaks and potential overtime are described in Section 10.

As pretty much everyone knows, a game lasts for 4 periods of 8 minutes of playing time. Rest time between quarters is 2 minutes and with 30 seconds to go both teams should take their places on the field. Please don’t be late, since that affects everyone involved, including potentially pushes out the game finishing time which then impacts the next two teams.

Lesser known is what happens when regular time ends in a draw in a game where a result is required (a finals game). If that happens, there will be the normal 2 minute rest period followed by two further 3-minute periods (teams swap sides for the 2nd period) of extra-time with no rest period in between.

The team that previously won the toss has starting possession for the first period of overtime and the opposing team has starting possession for the second period of overtime. The Neutral ball rule should continue as is; i.e. it does not reset back to the team that started the game if it is the other team’s turn.

If the scores are level at the end of overtime, there will be a further 2-minute rest period followed by a continual period of ‘Golden Goal’ overtime. So, the team that scores the first goal wins. Note, the team starting with starting possession and Neutral ball possession for ‘Golden Goal’ overtime will be determined by a new toss.

Brush up on your understanding of the Regulations and if there are any special arrangements to be made for your team (fill-ins etc), please do so as soon as possible with the captain of the opposing team and a member of the Board.

Thanks everyone for another great season so far and good luck in the finals!

Weekly Rule Highlight

With the Finals rapidly approaching, a quick word on Fill-In arrangements during the Finals period of a 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).

These are the rules, but we always aim to be flexible when considering each team’s circumstances. 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.

Weekly Rule Highlight

Some reminders of things that are still regularly forgotten and add extra work to the volunteers coordinating the scoresheets, results and stats:

  • All captains should make sure that any newly registered players are added onto the Team Registration Sheet and emailed to Dean and Dave at least a day prior to game night.
  • Anyone who is not printed on the scoresheet (unless there was some miscommunication) is considered a Fill-In and should be written into the 2-line box below the team list, with header ‘List FILL-INS below’.
    • If the player is registered with another team, circle Y in front of the name. Scores won’t count from R4 onwards and B&F points are never awarded.
    • If the player is new and not registered with any team, circle N in front of the name. Scores count, but B&F points will not be awarded until the player registers with a team.
      • A player can play up to 3 games with the team before needing to register.
      • Ideally, a player should not be added onto the Team Sheet until you’re reasonably sure they can commit to the season.
  • Cap numbers should be checked and, if needed, updated on the scoresheet prior to game start. If the number is printed on the sheet and is no longer correct, this needs to be updated on the Team Sheet and submitted by the captain as mentioned above.
  • The Duty Team member competing the score sheet should tally all scores horizontally at the end of the game and write their name at the bottom of the completed scoresheet.

REMINDER: No games next week due to Show Day. We resume with Round 12 on the 1st of November.

Weekly Rule Highlight

I fielded a question last night regarding a tactic that will be useful to clarify for everyone. A player was holding the ball with two hands in front and using that posture to maintain extra space (beyond the cylinder) in front while lining up a shot.

That is fine, if in accordance with the normal contact/barging rules.

The arms and the ball, even though extended beyond the cylinder, form part of your body. Therefore:

  • If the player already has the arms holding the ball extended, is either stationary or moving backwards, and a defender is pushing up against the defender (including the ball), then that is Impeding.
    • As soon as the player with the ball brings the arms up to take the shot (and gives up the space) then the defender can close the distance to the edge of the attacker’s cylinder, again bearing in mind normal Impeding rules.
  • If the player already has the arms holding the ball extended, and is moving forward into the defender, then that is Barging.
  • If at any stage, so even when static or moving backwards, the player extends the ball beyond his/her cylinder and pushes into the defending player, that is also Barging.
    • So for example, if the attacker brings the arms up to shoot, the defender closes the distance, but then the attacker changes his/her mind and tries to extend the arms again to make space and pushes into the defender, then that is Barging.

As with all barging/impeding/contact fouls, both attacker and defender are likely to be moving at the same time, so umpires have the difficult task of taking note of the length of arm extension and the direction of pushing when players come together.
