All the best to our teams in finals over the next three weeks.
We have three weeks of finals:
This week parents still need to score and keep time.
Next week official scorekeepers will be on the bench marking the scoresheet. A representative from each team will still be required to operate the clock - please agree with the other team beforehand, whether you will share the task for the whole game or swap over at half time.
Grand finals there will be an official scorekeeper and a referee on the scorebench.
A reminder that if you are on the scorebench, you are undertaking an important job – please:
concentrate and do everything you can to eliminate potential distractions, and
be impartial and refrain from barracking for your team.
Timing rules are the same this week as they have been for all fixtured rounds, that is:
Two time outs, each of one (1) minute duration, are allowed per team for each 20 minute half.
No time outs are allowed in the last two (2) minutes of the first half.
Clock does not stop in the first half at all.
Clock stops in the last three (3) minutes of the second half, but only for:
Please respect the job of those on the scorebench and allow them to focus on the game – including refraining from approaching the bench to request the clock be stopped – and refreshing yourself and your team’s supporters of the timing rules (refer to Broadmeadows website).
It would be fantastic if each team could have a representative (or more) attend. Also, if you have the time, transferable skills and want to show your commitment to our club, please consider taking a role on the committee or encouraging and nominating someone you feel that can make a contribution.
The Aussie Hoops program is an initiative aimed at introducing children aged between 5-10 years to the fundamental skills of basketball while having fun. It is sponsored and managed by Basketball Australia, Victoria and Broadmeadows Basketball Association.
The coaches are highly experienced and qualified and from past experiences the children have a lot of fun while they are learning.
Sponsored and supported by Basketball Victoria , Disability Sport & Recreation and the Broadmeadows Basketball Association, we would like to invite all of our coaches, players and parents to attend and get an insight into coaching Wheelchair Basketball.
Expressions of interest are invited for two casual positions – canteen helpers and venue managers – with Broadmeadows Basketball Association. Please click on the following ads for further details (pdfs).
If you are a coach, please consider this free clinic conducted by Australian Coach Ian Stacker, and sponsored by Basketball Victoria and the Broadmeadows Basketball Association, being held on Monday 16 June 2014, from 7-8:30 pm.
