GBC AGM and week 2 of our finals campaign

I would like to take this last opportunity to remind all Coaches and Team Managers of the Greenvale Basketball Club Annual General Meeting which is on this Wednesday 14th August at 7pm at the Greenvale Rec Centre. It would great to see at least one representative from each of our 46 teams there to hear the summary of the past year, and support the election of our new Committee.

Strong participation in Week 1 of the Finals has already seen 17 x GBC teams go through to Grand Finals. Congratulations to those teams, and commiserations to the teams that have finished their finals campaign for the Winter 2013 season.

For the 3 x GBC Under 8 teams playing their last scheduled game this week. Upon the completion of the games, can all players, team officials, family members and supporters please proceed to the Members Bar Area under the Main Stadium seating for formal presentations.

To the 24 x GBC teams participating in week 2 of finals games this Saturday, best of luck. Please refer below for details surrounding this week’s Finals fixturing.

Regards, Paul Byron, Greenvale Basketball Club – President

AGM 2012-13

Upcoming referee course

  • Are you interested in knowing more about the rules of the game?
  • Don’t want to coach, but want to get involved in some other way?
  • Want to earn some spare cash on Saturdays?

Whatever the reason, there is no better way to show your interest in improving our competition, than getting involved with the referees.

There will be a Beginners Referee Course hosted by Broadmeadows Basketball Association coming up in July. Your expression of interest can be emailed to refereescourse@bigpond.com.

You must be a minimum of 14 years old to participate and the Referee program is very keen to get some mature age people (parents, older siblings etc) interested as well.

Once numbers are confirmed, dates can be set, then further information will be available on the BBA website.

Grand Final times and notes re rule changes for Grand Final

Congratulations to all those people who made the grand finals – your times and venues are attached below.

One very important thing to note for Finals is that Team sheets are written up with the players that qualify only. Regardless of the situation, DO NOT make any additions or changes to Players Names on the game sheet as automatic Team Disqualification could result. If you have any concerns please contact your Registrar or myself if there are any issues. Boy’s U8 to U12 – Lance Corby 0419330941, Boy’s U14 to U19 – Val Ceddia 0417227340 or all Girls – Shane Gillard 0400669714.

A few other things to note regarding Grand Finals are:

  •   Both Scoring Sheet and Score Board duties are performed by BBA appointed Scorers. As such there is no need for parents or Team Managers to score this week.
  •   All Grand Finals will be played on an hourly schedule beginning at 8:30am rather than the normal 50 minutes schedule through the regular season.
  •   Where two Greenvale Teams are playing off in a Grand Final, the team listed first MUST wear the bids to assist the BBA appointed Scorers. This affects the following teams:
  • U12 Boys Gunners
  • U14 Girls Superstars
  • U16 Boys Celtics
  •   Grand Final timing rules are slightly different to the rest of the season. Following is an outline of the key differences:
    •   Clock stops on all timeouts – the usual two in 1st half and two in 2nd half are available to be used
    •   Clock stops on every whistle in the last 3 minutes of the 2nd half
    •   If the game time is exhausted and the score is drawn, and extra 5 min game time will be played, until a winning result is attained.

    Can Team Managers and Coaches please make yourself familiar with these changes to avoid both confusion and angst during the game. I would also suggest you inform your parents and supporters so they are aware of these rulings.

    •   Formal presentations for U10 ~ U14 are to be conducted in the Bar Area under the BRM1 main seating
    •   Formal Presentations for U16 ~ U19 will be conducted on their playing court directly after their games

In closing, good luck to the 23 teams that made Grand Finals and looking forward to see you all on Sunday 3rd March for the annual Greenvale Basketball Club Presentation Day.

Finals times and venues for this Saturday 23 Feb + it’s not cool to jump the back fence

Here are your times for finals this Saturday.

Please respect the Association and venue attendants by entering by the main doors – it is definitely not cool to come in the back doors – it is unfair to everyone and definitely not allowed and will be monitored more closely. Please advise your team members that the back doors are to remain closed at all times. We have venue supervisors at one entrance only so they can see who is entering and leaving at all times – this is to keep it a safe place for our families to enjoy.

Another important thing for finals is that team scoresheets are written up with the players that qualify only. Regardless of what the teams thoughts are, if you have a player in your team that is not listed on the sheet DO NOT make any additions to the sheet or play that player. You will find that the player has not signed the game sheets after the game or they have not been registered with the team correctly during the season. If you have any concerns please contact your Registrar before Saturday if there are any issues. Boy’s U8 to U12 – Lance Corby 0419330941, Boy’s U14 to U19 – Val Ceddia 0417227340 or all Girls – Shane Gillard 0400669714.
