Weekend Draw Info For 10-11 August

If you’re not on the draw email list, but want to see what sort of information is contained, we’re now posting this on our website too

All weekend draws and information can be found by clicking here (this page is updated each week).

Here is the info that was emailed to all coaches and  club contacts earlier this week:

Sunday’s draw has a small difference to normal in terms of WD1 and Wu21 games so that players involved with the Junior All Stars can fulfill their obligations there too.

Approaching the Bench:

  • We have had a few instances where scorebenches have been distracted by teams and mis-entered points for a game. To get things corrected as quickly as possible, please follow there steps:
    • Only the Head Coach is to approach the scorebench if there is a score issue he/she would like investigated (NOT a manager or player – if a manager notices a mistake, they need to communicate this to the Head Coach), and then returns to their team bench
    • The Head Coach asks the scorebench to please stop the game the next time the ball is dead (after a whistle or basket)
    • Once the ball is dead the scorebench stops the game and uses the game-horn to get the referees attention.
    • The Head coach then approaches the scorebench and referees to explain what he/she would like investigated. (Other Team’s coach will usually come and listen so they are informed at this stage too)
    • Referees can ask coach to return to bench while they discuss with scorebench (or keep coach there if they prefer)
    • Both coaches are invited in by referees to explain situation, and game resumes

CBA Awards

We’ll be doing the same sort of recognition for each A grade this year (on court at Cowles Stadium to receive the prizes before that particular grade’s final is played).

If your team is currently a grade with no sub-grades (e.g. MU23, WP etc), or in  A grade in a sub-grade, or played in A grade earlier in the year, please fill in attached MVP voting ballot (emailed to all contacts) and send this to james@canterbury.basketball by the specified date. One per team please, and please remember to only vote for players in teams apart from your own.
