Weekly Rule Highlight

Occasionally I’m asked whether it’s ok to pass the ball forward when starting the quarter. Whenever you have a question like that, please check the Regulations first. We also have a printed copy of the regulations on the table on game nights.

The short answer is yes, as long as the ball is passed from the centre point of the field (Section 9.6). Minor foul 15.1 might be confusing, but that merely states that you’re not allowed to advance past the centre line before the umpire has given the signal to start.

The person starting with the ball must be in the middle of the centre line and is not allowed to swim with the ball until it has been passed to another player. That can be in any direction after the umpires have started the game.

Weekly Rule Highlight

While not often called, minor foul 15.4 “To take or hold the entire ball under the water for more than 2 consecutive seconds.” is still something to be aware of. Quite often, players will briefly push the ball underwater in order to stabilise and/or push themselves up a bit just after obtaining possession. That’s fine and generally doesn’t take longer than a couple of seconds.

Similarly, rule 15.18 stipulates that a player can’t swim (interpreted as ‘be’; i.e. whether in motion or static) underwater for more than 2 consecutive seconds. This sometimes happens when players get tangled up or someone has to retrieve a fin, but very rarely with the intention to hide from other players.

An umpire is most likely to enforce these rules when the player gains an unfair advantage in the process.

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).

2017-18 S2 Umpiring Roster Finalised

Hope you’re all having a great weekend 🙂

Just a quick note to let the umpires know that the umpiring roster has been finalised and is available on the Roster page.

There are a few gaps, which were unavoidable due to the limited number of umpires. As players, please take that into account when your game is umpired by only one umpire and something gets missed.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please get in touch with Tony.

2017-18 S2 Roster

The roster for 2017-18 Season 2 has been published on the Roster page.

To those teams that haven’t provided team sheets yet, please provide them ASAP.

To the umpires, please note that we’re counting on every umpire (except for Kath and Troy) to continue this season. As is, we’ve already got gaps where we only have 1 umpire, so if others are not umpiring this season Tony and I need to know asap. Hopefully we can find 1 or 2 new umpires in addition to the current umpires, so we can cover all games and avoid situations where fouls etc aren’t seen.

Don’t forget, we have an umpiring meeting this Thursday 8/2 at 6:30pm in the Dive Pool meeting room.
