Rule Highlight of the Week

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).

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.

Ps. On another note; while it’s not in the rulebook, please note that when you leave your cap unsecured (as in, don’t tie the straps under your chin) you run a few risks. The straps can get caught when jostling for the ball, pulling your head in an unexpected direction. Also, loose straps means that the ear pieces are not properly secured over the ears. Their function is not just to keep the water out of your ears, but more importantly to ensure that your ears are protected from flailing arms and the odd ball you didn’t see coming.


About Water Basketball Tasmania
Water Basketball is a sport developed by The Hobart Aquatic Centre. It involves two teams of 6 players, who pass the ball down the pool to their goal end, which is a hoop similar to basketball. Each player wears flippers (and a cap to identify which team they are playing for). Goals are scored as two or three points depending how far from the goals you are.
