Referees – as usual we are always after any new referees to help (both with weekend and also after school and weeknight games), so if you have someone in your club you think would benefit from this please put him/her in contact with @rebecca@canterbury.basketball

We were incredibly pleased with how smoothly the past weekends have gone in Level Two – hopefully it is only one more weekend at this level after this one, but we need to be prepared for more. There are only a few things we want to remind you about (or add in):

  • 20 person limit per team – make sure you have organised who is in your group before Saturday or Sunday, to avoid having to tell them they cannot enter the playing venue on the day
  • Organise a meeting area for your team outside the venue, well away from other groups, but where you can see when entry is allowed (and then enter with your whole group one at a time). We want this done to try not have a tonne of people congregating in one area
  • Team Lists – If the person responsible for giving you your team list cannot see out the door, please have only one person text him/her to have this brought out to your team to complete while waiting
    • Remember a pen to add in coaches, managers etc on the form!
    • Your team is welcome to prepare their own list ahead of time too – all we need is: first name; last name; contact phone number for every member of your team party – either print these yourself, or email me the list before 10am Friday morning and I can print this out and have at your venue for you
  • Live streams – we don’t have enough staff members to manage this from a CBA perspective, but will happily share any streams clubs organise on our page for people to watch remotely
  • Leaving the venue as quickly as possible – so the next team can come in as soon as possible, handshakes are highly discouraged, and any team meetings are to be done outside the venue. Please stress the importance of doing three quick cheers for the opposing team, grab your gear and leave the stadium as soon as you can
  • Warm-up – each game will have at least five minutes to warm-up inside, so its advised to have your shoes on ready to go while waiting for entry (weather dependent of course)

Here are the last game dates in each competition for new team members to still be able to join (a lot of these have now passed):

  • Men’s Premier: 15 or 22 August depending on bye
  • Women’s Premier: 22 August
  • Men’s Division One: 23 August
  • Women’s Division One: 16 August
  • Men’s U23: 15 August
  • Women’s U21: 30 August
  • Men’s U20 Grades: 22 August
  • Women’s U18: 9 August
  • Boys’ U17 A: 22 August
  • Boys’ U17 Middle and Development Grades: 15 August
  • Boys’ U15 A, Lower Middle and Development: 15 August
  • Boy’s U15 Upper Middle: 29 August
  • Girls’ U15: 16 August
  • Boys’ U13: 1 or 8 August

Thank you everyone for all your work in getting all our teams on court this past week – and I know the Floor Controllers really appreciated the kind words people gave them too! 😊
