Dear Parents and Guardians
Club staff and volunteers contribute many hours – often after work – to compile domestic teams each season. It is a painstaking process that takes into account numerous considerations and preferences – many of which are often in conflict.

For the coming summer season, the Girls and Boys Domestic Team Composition Sub-Committees have had to work to very tight timeframes due to COVID – putting together some 100+ teams in half the time they normally have.

The Committee of Management kindly requests that you bear this is in mind when reviewing the placement of your child in their chosen team. While the Club understands there is sometimes disappointment with team placement, please also understand that for this coming season team composition has been a particularly difficult process.

Any queries regarding the teams should be emailed to juniordomestic@collingwoodbasketball.com.au Queries will be responded to as soon as possible but please understand there could be some delay

On behalf of the Committee of Management.

Spectators

As per COVIDSAFE, spectator limits will be increased to 40 per court, which will allow for two spectators per player. Masks also become recommended for patrons, however those aged 12 and up must wear on entry and exit of stadium where social distancing cannot be maintained.

Scoring (new – PlayHQ on iPads)

With the move to PlayHQ, we will be using ipads for scoring and a new scoring system. Information about the new system is available here. If you have time, it would be great if you could familiarise yourself with the new system prior to the game

  • At the beginning of each game, team information needs to be set up. Players expected to play need to be selected. It’s really important that following the completion of the previous game, Team Managers (or an informed parent or the coach) go to the scorebench and ensure the “scoresheet” is set up correctly. Singlet numbers will need to be checked or added for players
  • If any player is not listed and you need to add them (eg they are new to the team or they are filling in). You need their name, date of birth, suburb and postcode

Timing Rules (different)

EDJBA have lifted COVID 50 to COVIDSAFE.

The timing regulations have reverted to 2 x 20 minute halves and are available here

COVID requirements

EDJBA have announced COVIDSAFE

The EDJBA has made the decision to move the competition from operating under Orange-50 to COVIDSAFE (Green-100) effective from this Saturday 23rd January, 2021. This will see a significant number of restrictions eased including spectators limits increased slightly as well as the game length returning to two 20-minute halves.

As per COVIDSAFE, spectator limits will be increased to 40 per court, which will allow for two spectators per player. Masks also become recommended for patrons, however those aged 12 and up must wear on entry and exit of stadium where social distancing cannot be maintained.

With game lengths returning to 40-minutes, it’s imperative that games start on-time. Referees are encouraged to commence the game clock at the correct game start time and are not to wait for scorers to add players etc.

If at any point, Government restrictions change, the EDJBA will not hesitate to make immediate operational changes.

Masks

Masks also become recommended for patrons, however those aged 12 and up must wear on entry and exit of stadium where social distancing cannot be maintained.

No Zone Rule

The EDJBA has adopted Basketball Australia’s “No Zone” policy for U8s to U14s. This means that teams in these age groups are not allowed to play zone defence. “Any defence played inside the three-point line which does not incorporate normal man to man defensive principles shall be considered to be a zone”.
The EDJBA approach is one of communication and education:

  • NO action should be taken during games
  • Do NOT approach the referees, they are not responsible for enforcing this policy
  • Do NOT approach the Venue Supervisor, they are not responsible for enforcing policy
  • Do NOT approach or speak to the coach playing zone
  • There are NO in game penalties
  • If there are concerns about the defence played by a particular team during the season, then this should be communicated to the EDJBA here: EDJBA Zone Defence Feedback
  • If the team is playing a zone defence, this will be communicated to their Club, who will be required to provide education to the coach on acceptable man to man principles

Detailed information about the policy is available here. If you have queries about how to implement the No Zone policy, please email or call Gani Sakiri, our Head of Coaching, on coachingdirector@collingwoodbasketball.com.au or 0417 365 574.

Mercy Rule

The Mercy Rule is not applicable during grading (the first three rounds of the Summer 2021 season).
