Please see this previous post for the final scores and awards for the 2018-19 Season 1.

The awards for both both seasons of the 2018-19 financial year were presented during the Winter Water Basketball dinner yesterday at Amici restaurant in North Hobart. A big thank you to the 49 in attendance for making it another very enjoyable evening!

With regards to the 2018-19 Season 2, congratulations to the Championship winners of Division 1, The Nuts and of Division 2, Beached Az. A big congratulations also to the winners of the Individual Awards:

2018-19 Season 2:

  • Best & Fairest Female: Nykita Moore (Sharks)
  • Best & Fairest Male: Stewart Wilde (Sheep Stations)
  • Most improved Female: Kylie Sih (Beached Az)
  • Most improved Male: Jayden Petrusma (Ducks)

The complete Best & Fairest list (of those who received points) has now been updated in the Stats section for this season. The female players did very well and convincingly took up the overall top 3 spots on the B & F ladder! With 284 points for the season, Jemma Dazeley once more bagged the top scorer spot, followed by Tony Edmondson with 230 and Nykita Moore in third with 200 points.

As usual, I’d like to take a moment here as well to thank all members for being a part of the sport and DKHAC for sponsoring the Come & Try nights & promotion, MIP vouchers and being flexible with regards to bookings. Furthermore, I’d like to recognise the contributions of duty teams, the captains who organise their teams and fees, the umpires who have the difficult task of umpiring games where they can only see half the players 🙂 and of course the board members who keep it all going behind the scenes.

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 and Andrew taking photos and keeping an eye on the facebook page.

During this past year we successfully increased the number of teams from 8 to 9 and, if we’re able to maintain this, we’ll need to adjust the roster accordingly so that each team can play each other twice. I have received commitments for next season from most captains, but until all teams are confirmed, we cannot fix the dates for the Come & Try night and start of the season. I’ll send out an email to the captains soon, so please confirm asap. To everyone else, keep an eye on the website for further news, or better yet, subscribe for email notifications at the top right of this page.

As mentioned last night, there are also some changes in progress with regards to our User Group Agreement with DKHAC and its likely return to a calendar year approach. This in turn would mean a change in our Incorporated Association’s schedule, annual financial reporting, roster planning & booking and the timing of the Annual General Meeting. More about all that in an email to the captains as well.

Thank you all for another great season; hope to see you all back in the pool in July. 🙂

Dark Mofo: Landing

Dark Mofo organisers and artist Tanya Lee have asked me to help them communicate one of their events and encourage our players to participate. Please see below for details:

I’m getting in touch on behalf of Dark Mofo and artist Tanya Lee to let you know about a project called Landing that is coming up as part of the Festival that the Water Basketball might be interested in. We’d love to have you involved!

We are looking for swimmers to dive into the 50 metre pool at the Hobart Aquatic Centre to help us swim the distance between Australia and Manus Island in a continuous 24 hour relay. We need hundreds of swimmers to participate to make the project work!

The project is taking place from 6pm on Saturday 9 June- 6pm on Sunday 10 June and is free to participate.
