Weekly Rule Highlight

In addition to the amended Neutral Ball rule, sections 16 (Gross Misconduct/Dangerous Play) and 20 (Complaints) were amended to clarify the process.

Please read those sections so you understand what constitues a gross misconduct foul, what the immediate penalties are and what the process is for resolution of subsequent complaints.

From an umpire’s perspective, the process during the game is along the following lines:

  1. Keep on top of rough play by awarding fouls etc. Umpires should know the on/off the ball process (3m umpire watches on the ball, 2m umpire off the ball).
  2. Umpires chat with/warn players during the game. If this takes significant time, that time may be added to the game. This makes timekeeping a bit more difficult, but where it concerns a tight game or finals, it can be worth it.
  3. Umpires speak to players/captains during break.
  4. Next step (if the above hasn’t worked or the incidents warrants it immediately), is to sideline the relevant player(s) for the remainder of the quarter, or the rest of the game.
  5. A player can be ejected from the game, or from the centre completely. If the player refuses, this can lead to his/her team forfeiting the game.
  6. Report all incidents to the Chief Umpire (Tony). Ideally on the night in person and if that is not an option then by email.
  7. If an incident warrants a follow-up, then this will proceed through the Section 20 Complaints process.

As mentioned before, at the end of the day we’re all in this together with the aim to have a good time. Each player should take responsibility for his/her own actions, treat others with respect and just because you feel slighted, this does not give you the right to retalliate.

Play well, but act your best 🙂

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.
