Weekly Rule Highlight

While not often called, minor foul 15.4 “To take or hold the entire ball under the water for more than 2 consecutive seconds.” is still something to be aware of. Quite often, players will briefly push the ball underwater in order to stabilise and/or push themselves up a bit just after obtaining possession. That’s fine and generally doesn’t take longer than a couple of seconds.

Similarly, rule 15.18 stipulates that a player can’t swim (interpreted as ‘be’; i.e. whether in motion or static) underwater for more than 2 consecutive seconds. This sometimes happens when players get tangled up or someone has to retrieve a fin, but very rarely with the intention to hide from other players.

An umpire is most likely to enforce these rules when the player gains an unfair advantage in the process.


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.
