SAFETY FOR COMPETITIONS

Safety

Games in Progress – Games during Halftime – Time Outs and Between Games – Before and After Games

As a member based non profit organization, we need help from all parents, players, and spectators.

At all venues only the court is hired; other sporting equipment ,stages, foyers, weight rooms, pools, & other school buildings & ovals are off limits. Only close family members & scorers are allowed at the schools during game time to facilitate transport & the smooth running of the games/other spectators must obtain permission from the Spiders office. All participants must enter and leave quietly, vacating school grounds immediately after games to ensure school functions can progress without interference & security can identify those not authorized to enter the school.

Should a game become unduly rough and managers feel the referees are not calling enough fouls to control the game, please advise a supervisor ASAP so they can adjust either personnel or advise refs to increase calls. Basketball is a physical sport and contact will occur, but can be monitored within the game situation so all players can continue to perform to the best of their ability. See a supervisor at the first instance of an issue so it can be resolved & unnecessary contact not allowed to escalate into a dangerous situation.

The following rules MUST be followed:

  • Fingernails of players to be trimmed before taking the court.
  • No jewelry (no studs), wrist bands, hard plastic injury covers allowed on players
  • Please keep a safe distance from the court! Sidelines must be clear of toys/bags/straps
  • Do not walk across courts unless playing in a game. Shoot only when court clear!!
  • No people or objects on end lines where players drive to the basket.
  • No drink bottles to be taken onto court surface & no drink bottles on desks.
  • Chips and other food items not taken onto court surface or dropped onto adjacent areas.
  • Players & spectators to leave courts immediately after games for safety of next game.
  • Bags and water bottles to be stored safely under chairs and never on end lines/sidelines.
  • Chairs/bags/shoes/bottles/people must be a safe distance from playing surface
  • Other Balls (regulation basketballs allowed) not to be taken inside venues.
  • No bouncing, throwing, and passing of balls when other games in progress.
  • Everyone to walk carefully and slowly in venues. Children must not run in venue.
  • Children’s toys – books – puzzles not allowed within 2 metres of playing surface.
