2016-17 S2 Roster

The full roster, featuring the same 8 teams as last season, for the second season of the 2016-17 financial year has been published on the Roster page.

Umpiring has been scheduled for the first 3 rounds, in case there are any changes to the umpiring line-up and/or availability, and the rest will be added by end of week 2. Any questions or concerns regarding umpiring, please contact John asap.

As usual, the full (financial) year planner, which shows game & no game weeks, is available at the bottom of the Roster page as well. The Grand Final takes places on 15 June, followed by the Water Basketball Tasmania event of the year <insert trumpet call> on the 17th of June.

Please keep the evening of 17/6 free in your calendars for dinner (with a few awards thrown in). We would like to make this a fun evening for all players and see all teams solidly represented there, which at that time of the year and with this much notice should be achievable. More details regarding the event will be posted here as the season progresses.

If you haven’t already captains, please submit your updated team sheets to me by email no later than Wednesday 8 Feb. Just list the confirmed players for now and we can add further players when you submit your updated team sheet later on. Kyle and I have to manage the stats which is a fair bit of (volunteer) work, so we need to have an up-to-date view of confirmed (not potential) players and cap numbers, if you have your own caps, at the start of the competition. Don’t forget, players are only added to the printed score sheet after submitting an updated team sheet (not by writing them on the score sheet on the night).

Lastly, we strongly recommend that all players brush up on their understanding of the Regulations. Umpires still regularly have to explain simple things like how/where to take a free throw after a 3-in-the-2-meter area foul, even to experienced players, which is difficult to do shouting across the pool. Also, have a quick read of what’s expected of the Duty teams and how to complete the Score Sheet.

Have a great season everyone!

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.
