Lastly, the email regarding the Winter Water Basketball Dinner has gone out to all captains yesterday. See below for a summary, and please follow up with your captain if you haven’t yet received the more detailed email with RSVP and payment arrangements.

As has been indicated on the roster from the start of the season, this year’s Winter Water Basketball Dinner will be on Saturday the 16th of June.

We’d like this to be event for all players to participate in, so please help us make this event a success by getting as many of your team mates to come along as possible. Partners are invited as well.

  • The Dinner will be at 7:00pm on Saturday the 16th of June at the Ball & Chain’s upstairs function room.
  • The cost is $35 per head and the menu is a choice of:
    • Lamb shank – A favourite comfort food. A chunky shank served on potato mash enhanced with a tasty rosemary and red wine sauce.
    • Tasmanian Atlantic salmon – Chargrilled with hollandaise sauce.
    • 300g Rump steak – Many diners say this is the tastiest cut of all. It requires a little more work from the jaw because of its density but the flavour is well worth it. Topped with garlic and herb butter.
    • The vegetarian option is all you want from the salad bar for $15. If anyone wants this option then we suggest they just confirm their attendance via email and then pay on the night to keep it simple.
  • Drinks can be purchased separately at the upstairs bar.

Please transfer all payments by Friday the 8th of June into the Water Basketball Tasmania account (see your captain for details). We’re maintaining a RSVP list of everyone attending and who has paid. So, since there is only limited space in the transfer reference field, if you’re paying for a number of people please let Kyle and myself know the names via email.

We’ll accept cash if a bank transfer is problematic, but the bank transfer is preferred. If you have any questions, please check with your captain or get in touch with me asap. Hope you can all make it 🙂

Thank you all for making it another enjoyable season so far.

Cheers,
Dave

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
