Rule Highlight of the Week

First up we’re having a look at what happens when there are 3 or more players (of one team) in the 2 meter area and the foul (typically ‘3 in’ or ‘3 in the key’) is called. Most players understand that you can’t be in the 2 meter area with more than 2 of your own players, but many players still have trouble with how to take the free-throw.

If the attacking team is in possession of the ball at the time of the foul, then the in-possession player may take the free throw from the position the player is in at the time of the foul being committed if that player is within the 2 meter area or choose to take the free throw from the 2 meter line, directly in front of the basket (14.3.2.1).

If the team (defending or attacking) that is awarded the free throw is not in possession of the ball at the time of the foul being committed or in possession but outside of the 2 meter areas, the free throw must be taken from the 2 meter line, directly in front of the basket (S. 14.3.2.2).

Beyond that, standard free throw rules apply, such as not defending the player taking the free throw unless the player starts swimming and the umpire calls ‘Play On!’. Obviously no unnecessary time delays are allowed (at the discretion of the umpires) and lastly, if the player (in possession of the ball and therefore having to take the free throw) must leave the game due to injury or exclusion, their substitute (from the ‘bench’) shall take the free throw. If no substitute is permitted or available, then the nearest team mate may take the free throw.

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.
