RE: Coronavirus Update (COVID-19) – Friday 13th March 4pm

Dear Members,

Due to COVID-19, Nunawading Basketball has made the decision to cancel all domestic competitions at its controlled venues until further notice.

All Spectres teams will not be permitted to play in the VJBL competition if games are scheduled for tonight, Friday 13th March.

Nunawading Basketball will continue to update its members on the operations via our website and social media to ensure everyone is kept up to date. The decision to close is to reduce the chance of infection to our members and slow potential transmission and community spread of the virus. The domestic finals programs will be reviewed in line with the commencement of the 2020 Winter season and we will communicate our new schedules when they have been finalised.

I would like to thank you for your understanding at this time.


Mark Hallett
Chief Executive Officer
Nunawading Basketball

Coaches Guidelines


1 June 2018

The Junior Domestic Committee has passed a motion that to perform the duties of a scorer for any of the Junior Domestic Competitions Monday to Saturday (inclusive) an individual MUST be a minimum of 15 years of age and be a competent scorer.

This rule is in line with the Victorian Basketball Scoretable Association.

Each team shall provide one competent bench official (scorer or time keeper) for each game in which the team is engaged.   This scorer cannot be a coach.  Failure to do so will result in a 2  point penalty to be applied at half time.

The Team listed as “home team” (first team listed on the Electronic Scoring System (ESS) or scoresheet) shall do visuals. The “Away team shall be on scoresheet or ESS. If both scorers agree, roles can be swapped.

  1. Correct uniforms shall consist of uniform colour shorts, base colour (or coloured panels) of singlets and numbers (piping is not considered part of the uniform). Players wearing shorts of the style known as “bicycle shorts” are deemed to be out of uniform. For safety reasons, pockets are not permitted in shorts and no protruding jewelry may be worn. Hair is not permitted to be worn in plaits.Natural, Acrylic andGel nails are deemed a suitable length as long as they cannot be felt or seen over the top of the finger and that they are rounded and not sharp in any way. If the referee deems the nails to be too long, the player will not be allowed on court unless the nails are cut or taped. This is the decision of the referee and their decision is final.
  2. Numbers 0-68 and 70-99 are permitted for all junior competitions.
  • The penalty for incorrect uniform shall be the awarding of two (2) game points to the opposing team for each player taking the court in incorrect uniform with a maximum of ten points.FOR GRADING GAMES ONLY, R1-6,there is NO PENALTY to be applied when a (00) singlet is worn by a player waiting for a new uniform.
  1. A club shall apply (to the Competition Committee) for registration of the colour and design of its uniform. The Committee shall draw up a list of clubs where the uniform registered indicates a clash of colour between two or more clubs. Refer List at Venues.
  2. When teams from two clubs with the same or similar colours meet in a game, the “home” team shall be obliged to change to alternative coloured singlet’s or tops. The “home” team shall be the first named team on the fixture and score sheet. If the “home” team refuses to change to an alternative colour – see Rule Uniforms(VI).
  3. When two teams of the same club meet in a game, (e.g.: AB1 v AB2) it is the club’s responsibility to provide another colour uniform for one of the teams. Failing this, the first named team on the fixture and score sheet shall be deemed to be the “home” team and shall change to alternative colored singlet’s or tops.
  • Where a team is required to change to an alternative colour under (IV) or (V), and refuses to do so, that team will forfeit the game 10-nil. The premiership points in such cases will be three points to nil.
