Like last year, the awards for both this season and season 2 of the 2018-19 financial year will be handed out during the Winter Water Basketball Dinner on Saturday the 15th of June 2018 (see the Water Basketball Planner for the full 2018-19 schedule).

However, we wouldn’t want keep you in the dark until then with regards to the achievements of this season. Congratulations to the Championship winners of Division 1, The Nuts and of Division 2, Clownfish. A big congratulations also to the winners of the Individual Awards.

2018-19 Season 1:

  • Best & Fairest Female: Anna Harris (Brothers)
  • Best & Fairest Male: Sam Scandrett (Beached Az)
  • Most improved Female: Natalie Wren (Clownfish)
  • Most improved Male: Steve Harwin (The Sisters)

The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season.

Jemma Dazeley (The Nuts) is becoming the new regular top scorer, convincingly taking the number 1 spot on the top scorers ladder with 276 points. Tony Edmondson (The Nuts) ended up second with 233 points and Sam Scandrett (Beached Az) in third spot with 216 points.

As usual, I’d like to take a moment here to recognise the contributions of duty teams, captains, umpires and board members! Without everyone’s help and enthusiasm we wouldn’t be able to keep this competition running. A small effort on everyone’s part constitutes a significant result for everyone to enjoy. As always Sylvie’s help with setting up equipment & duty and Andrew’s contributions to our Facebook page are appreciated as well. We were fortunate again this season to have 8 solid teams, so a special thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, particularly with the added membership fee collection effort, and the Board for their work behinds the scenes.

After the Christmas break, we’ll kick the 2018-19 second season off with a Come & Try night on 31 January, followed by the first round on the 7th of Feb. For the full season’s schedule, as usual, check the Roster page.

To assist in planning, it would be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether they continue as Captains and whether their team will need help with finding new players. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with Tony whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better. Captains will need to submit their team registration sheets by February 1st at the latest (start with confirmed players only; it’s easier to add than to remove when doing the Stats).

New/interested players are encouraged to attend the Come & Try night on 31 Jan and/or send us an email with your inquiry through our enquiry form. The usual notification and poster will make its way onto the website and into DKHAC in the lead up to the night as well.

Thank you all for another great season; hopefully you’ll have a great Christmas break and much health and happiness in 2019! ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekly Rule Highlight

The duration of the game, breaks and potential overtime are described in Section 10.

As pretty much everyone knows, a game lasts for 4 periods of 8 minutes of playing time. Rest time between quarters is 2 minutes and with 30 seconds to go both teams should take their places on the field. Please don’t be late, since that affects everyone involved, including potentially pushes out the game finishing time which then impacts the next two teams.

Lesser known is what happens when regular time ends in a draw in a game where a result is required (a finals game). If that happens, there will be the normal 2 minute rest period followed by two further 3-minute periods (teams swap sides for the 2nd period) of extra-time with no rest period in between.

The team that previously won the toss has starting possession for the first period of overtime and the opposing team has starting possession for the second period of overtime. The Neutral ball rule should continue as is; i.e. it does not reset back to the team that started the game if it is the other team’s turn.

If the scores are level at the end of overtime, there will be a further 2-minute rest period followed by a continual period of ‘Golden Goal’ overtime. So, the team that scores the first goal wins. Note, the team starting with starting possession and Neutral ball possession for ‘Golden Goal’ overtime will be determined by a new toss.

Brush up on your understanding of the Regulations and if there are any special arrangements to be made for your team (fill-ins etc), please do so as soon as possible with the captain of the opposing team and a member of the Board.

Please see this previous post for the final scores and awards for the 2017-18 Season 1.

The awards for both both seasons of the 2017-18 financial year were presented during the Winter Water Basketball dinner last Saturday. A big thank you to the 35 in attendance for making it another success.

With regards to the 2017-18 Season 2, congratulations to the Championship winners of Division 1, The Nuts and of Division 2, Sheep Stations. A big congratulations also to the winners of the Individual Awards:

2017-18 Season 2:

  • Best & Fairest Female: Nicki Fox (Ducks)
  • Best & Fairest Male: Tim Hynes (Beached Az)
  • Most improved Female: Julie Mc (Clownfish)
  • Most improved Male: Dylan graham (Sharks)

The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season. With 286 points for the season, Jemma Dazeley once more bagged the top scorer spot, closely followed by Tony Edmondson with 275 and Cole Dabner in third with 215 points.

As usual, I’d like to take a moment here to recognise the contributions of duty teams, captains, umpires and board members! Without everyone’s help and enthusiasm we wouldn’t be able to keep this competition running as smoothly as it has been. A small effort on everyone’s part constitutes a significant result for everyone to enjoy. As always Sylvie’s help with setting up equipment continues to be appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚ . We were fortunate again this season to have 8 (reasonably) solid teams, so a special thank you to all Captains for keeping their teams organised and engaged, particularly with the added membership fee collection effort, and the Board for their work behinds the scenes.

The Incorporated Associationโ€™s Annual General Meeting is due and will be held prior to Round 1 of next season, which will be on the 26th of July, 6:30pm โ€“ 7:30pm in DKHAC meeting room 1 (Dive pool). All players are invited to attend. The agenda will be communicated to the captains via email closer to the meeting date. One of the items discussed will be Board membership. The current Board members have all confirmed they’re happy to continue in their current roles. However, if any player wishes to nominate themselves for a position on the board, the nomination should be submitted to me via email by Friday 20 July 5pm at the latest, so it can be voted upon (via email through captains) in the lead-up to, and confirmed in, the AGM.

We’ll kick the 2018-19 first season off with a Come & Try night on 19 July, followed by the first round on the 26th. For the full year’s schedule, as usual, check the Roster page.

It sounds like all teams are good to continue and have their captains in place. To assist in planning, it would be very useful if the Captains could indicate as early as possible whether their team will need help with finding new players, and if they do, please make sure to attend the Come & Try night. Similarly, the sooner umpires can confirm with Tony whether they intend to continue umpiring next season the better. Captains will need to submit their team registration sheets by Sunday the 22nd of July at the latest (start with confirmed players only; it’s easier to add than to remove when doing the Stats).

The fees for the 2018-19 financial year have been negotiated to remain the same as last year, which is great news, and the usual detailed information wil be emailed to the captains for distribution.

New/interested players are encouraged to attend the Come & Try night and/or send us an email with your enquiry through our enquiry form. The usual notification and poster will make its way onto the website and into DKHAC in the lead up to the night as well. Kyle has posted the event on our Facebook page, so you can share that on your timeline.

Thank you all for another great season; hope to see you all back in the pool in July. ๐Ÿ™‚
