Weekly Rule Highlight

One tactic for freeing up players from their defenders is the setting of screens. E.g. a player (screen setter) is holding a stationary position and his/her team mate is swimming directly past that screen, forcing his/her defender to go around that screen and as a result create some space.

In accordance with standard physical foul rules (s15.19-22), a screen is set correctly when:

  • The screen setter was stationary or moving backwards along with the direction of play.
  • The screen is set with the cylinder and not the arms.

The screen is set incorrectly if:

  • The screen setter is too late and moves sideways into the screen position at the same time as the defender arrives. This is considered a ‘Swimming-under’ or ‘Contact’ foul.
    • A variation of this can occur when the screen setter moves with his team mate and is creating a moving screen. This is fine, as long as no contact is made in the process. If there is contact, normal ‘Contact’ rules apply. All players involved are moving and in close proximity, so this can get a bit messy. It’s up to each player to behave respectfully towards each other and the umpires to do their best in determining inappropriate levels of contact.
  • The screen setter moves forward (against the direction of play) into the defender’s cylinder or even makes physical contact. This is considered to be an ‘Impeding’ or ‘Contact’ foul.

If a screen is set correctly, these are some of the common fouls by the other players involved:

  • The defender/screen receiver swims into the screen setter. This is a ‘Barging’ or ‘Contact’ foul.
    • Since barging rules apply, if the defender/screen receiver can’t reasonably see the screen then relaxed barging rules apply; meaning that if the contact with the screen setter is light and the screen receiver stops immediately upon that contact, play continues (Play On can be called for clarity). Alternatively, if the screen receiver keeps moving into the screen or the contact is of significant impact, then barging is called on the screen receiver.
  • If the player, who is leading the screen receiver into the screen, pushes/nudges the defender/screen receiver in the process then normal barging/contact rules apply to that player.

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.
