Training and our heat policy

Heat%20Exhaustion%202[1]Welcome back to the new year. As you may know, our competition starts again this weekend. Refer to the Greenvale teams page for your match times for Saturday.

Training does resume this week, however please be mindful of the health and safety of our players and abide by our Heat Policy <click here to read>.

Take care out there and good luck for the rest of the season – remembering we have an extra couple of games this time before finals start, to bring the season into line with our school terms.

Expect parking congestion with the election on Saturday

The Primary school (Broadmeadows Valley) across the road from the Broadmeadows Stadium is being used as a polling venue for the Federal Election on this coming Saturday 7 September. We anticipate that the parking will be at a premium within the area.

Please allow for this by arriving early, so you are not late for your games.

Week one of finals and our AGM

Firstly, I would just like to take this opportunity for Coaches and Team Managers to remind all families that the Greenvale Basketball Club AGM in on next Wednesday evening, 7pm on the 14th August at the Greenvale Rec Centre. Our club is in a very healthy state, and we’ve already had nominations to fill all constitutional positions. I would like to see at least 1 representation from each of our 46 teams there to support and recognise those members that do volunteer their time to keep our great club running. This meeting is a very important event on our calendar, and it’s the ideal time to show your support, hear a summary of our past year and see the new Committee elected.

Attached are details surrounding this week’s finals – both the game schedule and player qualifications. This is only applicable to U10 ~ U19. U08’s will just play an extra 2 weeks of fixtured games.

Regarding player eligibility for finals, we had several players miss qualification and as a consequence, CAN NOT play in the Finals series. Whilst this is somewhat of a painful experience for the child affected, these rules are in place for a reason. To qualify, the rules are quite simple:

  • Player must have completed a Girls (pink) or Boys (blue) BBA Registration Card once in either the current or a past seasons
  • Player must have registered by signing the original Team Sheet which is submitted at the start of a season, else register with the Team by completing registration details and signing the back of a Game Day Score Sheets
  • Player must have participated in at least 9 games in the current season (concession are given for BYEs and Walkovers received)
  • Player must have signed the back of at least 9 game Score Sheets in the current season

Failure to comply with all 4 of these regulations will exclude a player from participating in finals.

Team Managers can check their player eligibility against the marked up team sheets (click here). For the four teams that have BYEs this week, your player eligibility is not included, but if you have any concerns we can follow this up for next week.

Given the rules regarding player eligibility is understood, I must reiterate for those that didn’t already know, finals score sheets are manually marked up with the names of ONLY qualified players. These names should not be altered in any way or added to. Last season, after the first round of Finals the results of three GBC teams were affected due to one of the participating teams adding players to the team sheet. The offending teams were ALL disqualified. Of those, two results were in our favour, and one was against. So I remind you all – DO NOT ADD PLAYERS TO FINALS SCORE SHEETS.  If you realise an omission that you were not aware of, contact me or your respective registrar immediately but under no circumstance is the player involved to take the court without our or BBA’s prior consent.

I’ll take this opportunity to thank all those that made last week’s Registration collection pretty straight forward. Most teams were well organised and we are well progressed towards team submission and finalising for next season. For the stragglers – please get your information and monies in urgently!!!

Aside from all that, good luck to those teams competing in finals this week. Of the 81 games scheduled this weekend, Greenvale is participating in 37.

Regards,  Paul Byron
