Weekend Draw Info 15/16 May 2021

This information has been sent out to all our club basketball contacts this week, ahead of weekend toru

The Weekend draws can be found on this page throughout the season. 15-16 May Draw

  • Parent Behaviour Towards Referees – one school received feedback from their players who refereed, saying that the teams were great, but could hear abuse coming from the spectators. Could you please make sure all of the parents who come to your games know that this behaviour is not acceptable, and we need them to role model what good behaviour looks like. Our referees are valued, and are giving back to the sport we all love, so we need them to feel respected when they are doing the best job they can.
  • FREE Guy Molloy Coaching Clinic – reminder this is on Friday, before the Rams’ game. If you haven’t registered yet, the link to do this is on our website

  • Walking basketball – This is back for Term Two. If you have someone you think would enjoy this, please let them know about it and encourage them to come to the “Have a Go” session on Tuesday 18 May, 10:30am at Cowles Stadium

  • Scorebench Reminders – Referees should submit the game on Glory League (not the scorebench) – so we definitely get the results pushed through. For junior teams, at least one adult must be on the scorebench with players, to help oversee them. If you need some info about what is required, please let me or rebecca@canterbury.basketball know and we can send you some information to give out
  • Referee Supply – most of you are probably aware of the larger than forecast growth we are experienced this year, which has caused issues sourcing enough gyms (this is now just about solved for the season!), and for Rebecca in terms of getting enough qualified referees assigned to games. Our Tuesday staff meeting was devoted to improving this, and Jozsef will be in touch with all our clubs/schools to share some more details about our plan going forward. As usual – if anyone in your team can help referee any games this weekend, please contact rebecca@canterbury.basketball to let her know
  • Rams’ Game on 14th  May – tickets can be bought here
  • GameDay App – this can be used for maps of gym locations too (download on the google play or apple store) – just search on the teams tab and add the team you want to follow to see when and where they will be playing
