Umpiring Roster Update

Please note that the umpiring roster has been scheduled up to and including Round 8.

Normally John would provide the roster for the rest of the season at this point but due to changes in umpires’ availability it will be updated published in parts.

Also, we have not been able to assign the full 2 umpires to each game. The (volunteer) umpires appreciate your patience and the understanding that a single umpire can’t always see everything but calls the game to the best of his/her ability.

2017-18 S1 Roster

The full roster, featuring the ‘samish’ 8 teams as last season, for the first season of the new 2017-18 financial year (26/7 – 30/11) has been published on the Roster page.

Umpiring has been scheduled for the first 3 rounds, in case there are any changes to the umpiring line-up and/or availability, and the rest will be added by end of week 2. Any questions or concerns regarding umpiring, please contact John asap.

As usual, the full (financial) year planner, which shows game & no game weeks, is available at the bottom of the Roster page as well.

If you haven’t already captains, please submit your updated team sheets to me by email no later than Wednesday 26 July. Just list the confirmed players for now and we can add further players when you submit your updated team sheet later on. Kyle and I will need to have an up-to-date view of confirmed (not potential) players and cap numbers, if you have your own caps, at the start of the competition. Don’t forget, players are only added to the printed score sheet after submitting an updated team sheet (not by writing them on the score sheet on the night).

Lastly, we strongly recommend that all players brush up on their understanding of the Regulations. Umpires still regularly have to explain simple things like how/where to take a free throw after a 3-in-the-2-meter area foul, even to experienced players, which is difficult to do shouting across the pool. Also, have a quick read of what’s expected of the Duty teams and how to complete the Score Sheet.

Have a great season everyone!

The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics. Congratulations to Jemma Dazeley (The Nuts) who took out the top spot with 276 points (word is that she arranged for Tony to have a cycling ‘accident’ mid-season). Markus Bucher (Sharks) ended up in second spot with 210 points, followed closely by Sam Scandrett (Beached Az) with 205.

Round 14 was the last round of the regular part of the competition and we’re now heading into the 3-week finals period. The Roster has been updated and at the bottom of that page you will also find the new planning for the 2017-18 financial year.

Check the Regulations for the Fill-in and Team member requirements during the finals.

The first Water Basketball Tasmania Annual General Meeting was held last night, for which the minutes will be emailed to the team captains (for distribution to their players) soon. Some of the major points are that the re-negotiated fees for the next couple of years look achievable without too much increase in membership fees (provided we keep our 8 teams running), we should have some cash available to put towards equipment (balls, nets, etc) and that the current Board has been re-elected to continue as is for the next financial year. Thanks to those taking the time to attend.

Lastly, due to booking constraints, we have had to move the Winter Water Basketball Dinner out one more week, to take place on Saturday 1 July. Further details will be emailed to the captains, but to summarise, the dinner will be held upstairs at the Ball & Chain (time to be confirmed) with a choice of fish, steak, lamb shanks or chicken (combined with the renowned B&C salad bar) for around $35 to be paid in advance. Drinks can be purchased separately at the upstairs bar.

You’ll need to RSVP (we’ll do that via the captains & email) by Friday 9 June at the latest, and we’ll need payments by Friday 16 June. Information on how to pay (will be cash or a bank transfer) will be sent to the captains as well. Partners are welcome; we hope as many of you as possible will come along to help make the event a success 🙂

Roster Reminder

As mentioned on April 10th, there are no games this week due to the Australian Water Polo Country Championships taking place at DKHAC.

The competition continues next week 25/5 with Round 13.

2016-17 S2 Roster Update

DKHAC has been given the opportunity to host the Australian Water Polo Country Championships from 17th May to 21st May 2017. To accommodate the schedule for this championship they have needed to change a number of bookings, including our 18 May game night.

So, no games on 18 May and the remainder of the roster has been pushed out by 1 week. This means the regular part of the season now ends on 1 June, the finals weeks are on 8, 15 and 22 June, and our club dinner will be on 24 June (please mark in your calendars).

Umpires, should this change present any difficulties, please get in touch with John asap.

Lastly, a reminder that we’re heading into the Easter break. So no games this week or next and we’ll resume with Round 10 on 27 April.

Hope you enjoy the Easter break 🙂

2016-17 S2 Roster

The full roster, featuring the same 8 teams as last season, for the second season of the 2016-17 financial year has been published on the Roster page.

Umpiring has been scheduled for the first 3 rounds, in case there are any changes to the umpiring line-up and/or availability, and the rest will be added by end of week 2. Any questions or concerns regarding umpiring, please contact John asap.

As usual, the full (financial) year planner, which shows game & no game weeks, is available at the bottom of the Roster page as well. The Grand Final takes places on 15 June, followed by the Water Basketball Tasmania event of the year <insert trumpet call> on the 17th of June.

Please keep the evening of 17/6 free in your calendars for dinner (with a few awards thrown in). We would like to make this a fun evening for all players and see all teams solidly represented there, which at that time of the year and with this much notice should be achievable. More details regarding the event will be posted here as the season progresses.

If you haven’t already captains, please submit your updated team sheets to me by email no later than Wednesday 8 Feb. Just list the confirmed players for now and we can add further players when you submit your updated team sheet later on. Kyle and I have to manage the stats which is a fair bit of (volunteer) work, so we need to have an up-to-date view of confirmed (not potential) players and cap numbers, if you have your own caps, at the start of the competition. Don’t forget, players are only added to the printed score sheet after submitting an updated team sheet (not by writing them on the score sheet on the night).

Lastly, we strongly recommend that all players brush up on their understanding of the Regulations. Umpires still regularly have to explain simple things like how/where to take a free throw after a 3-in-the-2-meter area foul, even to experienced players, which is difficult to do shouting across the pool.

Have a great season everyone!
