Weekly Rule Highlight

As recently explained again, only 2 players of each team are allowed to occupy any space within each 2 meter area (see 15.8 and 15.9 of the Regulations).

For full details on the rule, see this post earlier this season, but to highlight the things to do when this foul is called in the offensive team’s favour:

  • The player with the ball at the time (or nearest if no possession) gets to take the free throw.
  • You must take the free throw either on the spot that player was on at the time of the foul call, OR, directly in front of the basket on the 2-meter line. It’s your choice and you should make your decision clear to players and umpires.
  • If you take the free throw in the 2-meter area (on the line is also considered in the 2-meter area), then only 1 other player from your team can be in the 2-meter area.
  • From the free throw spot (you may be called back if not on the designated spot), you may shoot, pass or swim.
    • If you swim, the umpires will call Play On and the defenders may resume defending.

Please remind your team mates of this process, since umpires keep having to explain the rule even to experienced players, and it can get confusing trying to shout a rule explanation over the water to people with ear guards on.

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.
