Finals kick off this weekend

Updated …. apologies for confusing people …

All the best to our teams in finals over the next three weeks. north brisbane basketball North Brisbane Basketball north brisbane basketball North Brisbane Basketball

We have three weeks of finals:

  1. This week parents still need to score and keep time.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
    • time outs
    • substitutions
    • foul shots.

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).

Reminder AGM Tuesday 12 August

A reminder that our club’s Annual General Meeting is on next Tuesday 12 August at the Greenvale Recreation Centre, kicking off at 7pm.

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.

Check out our previous post for all the details.

On behalf of the outgoing committee, I look forward to seeing you there.
