2014 S2 Roster

Please note that the Water Basketball roster for the 2014 2nd regular season has been posted on the roster page, with Round 1 starting this week on the 31st of July. As usual, the remainder of the Umpiring roster will be published a couple of weeks into the season, to allow for any last minute changes in commitment.

If your team captain hasn’t yet submitted their Team Registration sheet (to Kath) for this season, please do so asap. As noted previously, if a player is not printed on the score sheet (which would have required for an updated team sheet to be submitted to Kath at least a day before game night), the player is considered to be a fill-in. As per regulations, people playing as fill-ins are not eligible for top scoring and B&F stats.

All Fill-in scores count towards the team total during the first 3 rounds of every regular season (see 6.4 of the regulations), which will give teams the opportunity to settle into their final form. In addition, during the first 3 games of the season, there is no minimum of 4 own (as in, not registered with other teams) requirement and the minimum of 4 players can be met through use of fill-ins from other teams.

Round 4 onwards, if the fill-in is registered with another team, their scores no longer count towards the total team score (these should NOT be noted on the scoresheet). Scores from unregistered fill-ins should still be counted towards the total team score however. Fill-in scores are, during the entire season, noted in the score sheet’s Fill-In section for the team.

During the remainder of the season (after the first 3 games) the 4 own players rule (see 3.5.4) applies; so this means you must have a minimum of 4 registered (and as such printed on the sheet) players ready to play on the night or forfeit the game.

As always, should you require clarification of any regulations, please contact a board member via email or during game nights.

Good luck to all teams and hopefully you all enjoy the last season of 2014!



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.
