Rule Highlight of the Week

Section 18 deals with Game Stoppages. The umpire may stop a game in the event of accident, injury or illness and in the event of a game stoppage a player shall be allowed to leave the water, or sit or stand on the steps or side of the pool with the permission of a umpire.

If an accident, injury or illness, including bleeding, occurs, an umpire may at their discretion suspend the game for not more than three minutes, in which case he shall instruct the timekeeper as to when the stoppage period is to commence. Missed time is added on.

In the case of a stoppage, the team in possession of the ball at the time of the stoppage resumes in possession of the ball, roughly where the play stopped. Note that this is a bit like a Neutral ball in the sense that the player who puts the ball back in play after a stoppage is not permitted to shoot.

During the stoppage, the injury is checked and discussed with the concerning player. Actions taken can range from the player returning to the pool, to substituting/remaining out of the game for a bit to recover, to engaging a first-aid certified lifeguard in a more formal capacity. This last option will require the player to discuss their condition and options with the lifeguard and possibly (depending on the circumstances) sign the incident form the lifeguard completes.


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.
