Update Umpiring Roster and Regulations

Please note that the umpiring roster has been updated to include the remainder of the season.

In addition, minor updates were made to the regulations on the Regulations page as a result of the Umpiring Meeting on 7 August 2014. Specifically:

  • 11.3 Updated to reflect that the 3-meter umpire shall be (ultimately) responsible for calling the score and communicating it to the Duty Team (this was already in place since an umpiring meeting last year, but not yet revised in the regulations).
  • 15.15 Holding the ball was clarified in sub-section 15.15.1 (no actual change in rule).
  • 16.1 Gross Misconduct, player exclusion was modified to allow a more incremental escalation.

Should you have questions regarding any of the above information, please contact Chief Umpire John Morrisby.


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.
