2015 S1 Roster

Hopefully you’ve all had a great break and are enjoying the Summer whenever the weather allows. Time is flying past and we’re already in February; which means it’s time to dust those fins off, see if the bathers are indeed as stretchy as advertised and head on down to Water Basketball Thursdays :-).

Unfortunately Plankton couldn’t get a team together this season, but due to an excellent turn-out at last week’s Come & Try night we’ve been able to establish a new team (using the name of an old team) called Sea Snakes, which features 3 experienced players and 6 further new players. Hopefully all existing teams will do their usual best to make the new players feel welcome and assist with their introduction to the game. This means players assisting players, umpires explaining the rules a bit more during and outside of play, as well as the team Duty tasks.

The full roster for the first regular season of 2015 is available on the Roster page now, including umpiring for the first 3 rounds (the rest will be added in the next few weeks as usual). See the 2015 Water Basketball Planner for the full year’s schedule.

Last but not least, don’t forget to have a look through those Regulations (especially new players), to ensure you get the most out of your game experience. To all players, please also remind yourself of the Duty process and the proper way to fill out a scoresheet to assist in making the games run smoothly for all and ensure we don’t lose or damage our equipment.

See you poolside for another great Water Basketball season!



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.
