Come & Try and 2019-20 S1 Roster

All 9 teams have confirmed for next season, so I have adjusted the roster accordingly to make sure each team will play each other twice as well as has the same number of byes.

This season’s roster will have 18 regular rounds (each team plays each of the other 8 twice and has 2 byes (so 2 x 8 + 2 = 18). To help make the longer season fit, we have decided to reduce the finals rounds to 2, which makes it more of a knock-out structure, rather than the 3 round finals which gives the top teams in each division a second chance.

The roster has been published on the Roster page and the full year planner is up-to-date and available below it as well. The umpiring roster will be added in the coming week.

To all of last season’s umpires, please confirm to Tony in the next few days whether you will still be umpiring this season. Remember, we need at least 1 umpire per team, but 2 would be a lot better. So, if you’re not continuing, please arrange someone from your team to replace you. If anyone hasn’t umpired and is interested, please contact Tony to discuss asap.

This means we now also have a date for the Come & Try night, which will be on the 11th of July 2019 at 7:30pm in the Dive Pool. The usual flyer, post and DKHAC advertising will be organised soon.

Weekly Rule Highlight

Highlighting a few aspects of Free Throws this week.

A goal may be scored directly from any Free Throw except for the Neutral Ball (must pass first).

During a Free Throw (including the Restart Throw-in, which occurs after a score), opposing players within 2 meters may not contest the ball (i.e. defend). In accordance with 14.7.1, players may be no closer than 1 meter from the player taking the free throw. However, this is not always enforced when it concerns space limitations in the 2 meter area and/or the shooter is clearly not hindered in his/her actions or there is advantage in being able to play on quickly. The main thing umpires look for is that you do not defend the free throw.

If the quarter ends before the Free Throw can be taken (for all except Neutral Ball), then the relevant player may still take the shot at goal. This is of course without further movement, e.g. if it concerns a Corner Throw-in then the shot needs to be taken from the corner.

A final thing to emphasise with regards to Corner Throw-ins, is that they are in fact Free Throws and they work similarly. From a Corner you are allowed to pass, swim and score directly, without having to pass the ball to another player first.

The Semi Finals roster, including duty and umpiring, has now been posted on the Roster page.

The details of the Winter Water Basketball Awards night on 15/6, regarding venue, booking and payment, have been emailed to your captains yesterday so please check with them for details.

Weekly Rule Highlight

Section 15.3 basically deals with holding onto, leaning on or pushing off the sides of the pool or baskets, which is not allowed, unless in the event of injury (including cramp) or illness.

15.3 To gain positional advantage by holding on to, resting or pushing off from the goal or their fixtures or by holding on to, resting or pushing off from the sides or ends of the pool during actual play except with the permission of the umpire.

15.3.1 The umpire may give permission for a player to hold onto the goal or sides of the pool in the event of injury or illness.

If you are injured or ill and can’t participate in play, it is recommended that you exit the pool in the quickest and easiest way. Note, that if you then return to play, you must do so in a considered manner without risk to others.

Officially, returning to the pool should only be done via the substitution area, but umpires do make an exception when someone has briefly left the pool to stretch out some cramp etc, and then returns to the water before play has returned to that area. It is risky, and therefore not acceptable, to re-enter the pool where there are other players and the game is in full progress.

Weekly Rule Highlight

Some reminders of things that are still regularly forgotten and add extra work to the volunteers coordinating the scoresheets, results and stats:

  • All captains should make sure that any newly registered players are added onto the Team Registration Sheet and emailed to Dean and Dave at least a day prior to game night.
  • Anyone who is not printed on the scoresheet (unless there was some miscommunication) is considered a Fill-In and should be written into the 2-line box below the team list, with header ‘List FILL-INS below’.
    • If the player is registered with another team, circle Y in front of the name. Scores won’t count from R4 onwards and B&F points are never awarded.
    • If the player is new and not registered with any team, circle N in front of the name. Scores count, but B&F points will not be awarded until the player registers with a team.
      • A player can play up to 3 games with the team before needing to register.
      • Ideally, a player should not be added onto the Team Sheet until you’re reasonably sure they can commit to the season.
  • Cap numbers should be checked and, if needed, updated on the scoresheet prior to game start. If the number is printed on the sheet and is no longer correct, this needs to be updated on the Team Sheet and submitted by the captain as mentioned above.
  • The Duty Team member competing the score sheet should tally all scores horizontally at the end of the game and write their name at the bottom of the completed scoresheet.

No Games Tonight (Roster Change)

No Games tonight. DKHAC is running a swimming event (2019 Tasmanian State Championships) and forgot to notify me so I only found out today through a heads-up from Honey Badger Steve.

To resolve this, we are moving Rounds 5 – 10 (7 Mar – 11 Apr) up 1 week and will catch up on, what was originally a ‘No Game’ night, 18 April. So no games tonight, everything shifts up one week, we play 18 April and after that everything is as originally scheduled. The Roster and Year Planner have been adjusted accordingly.

DKHAC apologises for the inconvenience and will not be charging us for the 18 April game night. Funds saved will go towards equipment etc.

Umpires, please review the change and get in touch with Tony ASAP if you see any conflicts.

I’ll send an email to all captains as well.

See you next week,
Dave

The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics.

Umpires, please note that the full season’s umpiring roster has been published on the Roster page. Any reported days of unavailability have been taken into account, so hopefully that means everyone can umpire as scheduled. If anything comes up, please contact the Chief Umpire Tony asap.

Weekly Rule Highlight

With the conclusion of Round 3, the relaxed rules around fill-ins return to normal again (see section 3 and 6 of the Regulations). So, to remind you; note that all fill-in names should be written into the specific section on the sheet and not directly below the registered players. A fill-in is someone who is not printed on the score sheet. Note to Captains; fill-ins written in the team section of the sheet are not considered as newly registered players until an updated Team Registration Sheet has been submitted.

During Round 4 and subsequent rounds each team must have a minimum of 4 of its own registered players (or forfeit the game – don’t forget you could still play a scratch match with whomever is there).

Scores from registered (with another team) players do not count at all Round 4 onward, so also not towards the total team score (and obviously not be eligible for B & F points for that game).

A non-registered fill-in can score and that score does count towards the team total score, but they will still not be attributed to the players top scoring rankings & not be eligible for B & F points until officially registered with a team (captain updates team sheet and submits with Kyle and Dave).

Duty teams please note that if a registered player scores as a fill-in during round 4 or a later round, and an umpire has not picked this up and signals the score, these scores should not be counted on the score sheet. If you are not sure whether a player is registered with a team or not, then ask the relevant captain and/or umpires ASAP (preferably before game start).

If confusing, please ask a board member or umpire before your game.

During the meeting last night a question came up regarding what is expected of Duty teams. I’ve listed a link below to the page on this website that explains this, as well as some other useful links:

 

Weekly Rule Highlight

Whenever a player takes any kind of free throw (regular free throw, neutral ball, goal line throw in (after score), corner, side line (after ball goes out), penalty) no player within 2 metres of the player taking the Free Throw may contest (defend) the taking of the throw or obstruct mechanics of the throw in any way (14.7).

While defending players may be closer to the person taking the free throw when they don’t defend the throw, the player taking the free throw should be given sufficient space to take the free throw without interference.

Active defense of the player taking the free throw may only resume once the free throw has been taken or after the umpire has called ‘Play On’.
