Weekly Rule Highlight

Last week I highlighted the process for determining who starts the game. This week, we have a look at how the game, and each quarter, is started.

As outlined in sections 9.2-9.6 of the Regulations, at the start of each quarter the players of each team must all be completely on their designated half of the field. The umpire will then blow the whistle and the player of the team in possession must then pass the ball from the centre point (so you can’t start swimming with it as with free throws). If the starting team is ready and the defending team is still faffing about and only partly present, the umpires may choose to start the game regardless.

Each period will be started when the red or white dial reaches the top/12 o’clock mark on the 60 seconds pool clock (above the meeting rooms). The umpire usually clarifies this to all players by calling ‘red top’ or ‘white top’. In order to maintain game schedules, the timekeeper may begin timing at the scheduled game start prior the umpire signalling the start of play (in consultation with the umpire), if the teams are not ready.


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.
