2016/17 Summer Junior Competition Information

We are all looking forward to returning to basketball next season. Please find here information you need to know for the coming season.

Grading period fixtures

Fixtures for rounds 1-4 (grading period) of the 2016/17 summer junior competitions are now online. CLICK HERE to see which section your team has been graded in.

Competition rules and points of emphasis

The following documents can be found HERE. Please ensure that you are familiar with these.

  • Competition Rules – Points of Emphasis (2016/17 Summer)
  • Full HBA Competition Rules

Results and ladders

Results of matches during the junior grading period will be retained if there are no changes to that section at the conclusion of the grading period.

Why has my team been put up multiple sections?

As most junior competition age groups are separated by 2 years, there will be “top-age” kids and “bottom-age” kids. Typically, teams occupying the higher sections are top-age teams. All of the top-age teams from last season have moved up an age group thus leaving the bottom-age teams from last season in the same age group for their top-age year.

Regrading

Following the first 4 rounds of competition, in conjunction with the HBA, delegates from the major clubs will discuss the results from the grading period and come up with the final allocation of teams to sections for the regular season. Decisions are made with the interests of the competition as a whole in mind and not necessarily to cater for the requests of individual teams. The ability to make changes is limited due to limited resources (venues and referees).

Behaviour towards referees

Why do some people think it is acceptable to bully referees? Refereeing basketball games is not an easy job and referees are not immune to making mistakes; just like players are not immune to missing shots. Unfortunately, those who feel it’s acceptable to get stuck into referees are driving them away from refereeing. This sort of behaviour will not be tolerated. Referees are human and they too have feelings. We should be encouraging and thanking them for their efforts because they’re out there giving it a crack and frankly, we don’t have a game without them.

We appreciate all members who have questions or feedback going directly to their local club to have resolved.

We hope you enjoy the summer of hoops at the Hawthorn Basketball Association!
