We are finally at the end of the minor rounds for the Summer season!
Congratulations to the Camels who are once again the A grade minor premiers! Congratulations also to The Hammer, who are the B grade minor premiers.
Thanks for your patience with all the ice rink maintenance that has happened and interrupted our season. As a result the next 3 weeks will consist of the final series and then straight into Nationals training.
The Finals format will be the same as last season with the Top 4 teams in A-Grade and Bottom 4 into B-grade. The first round of finals is as follows:
- 7th v 8th (B grade Elimination Final)
- 5th v 6th (B grade Qualifying Final - winner goes straight to the B grade grand final)
- 1st v 2nd (A grade Qualifying Final - winner goes straight to the A grade grand final)
- 3rd v 4th (A grade Elimination Final)
Overtime will consist of one 5 minute period, golden goal with 4 players per side (including goal tender). You must maintain the gender requirements during this period.
If it is still tied at the end of the 5 minute period we move to a shootout. Shootouts will be 3 people from each team alternating genders. Then if it is still tied you continue shooting from the remainder of your roster continuing the alternating genders until a result is obtained.
The schedule is now available on the website. Good luck to all teams in the finals!
The 2018 Australian National Broomball Championships are fast approaching (6-10 June). Those wishing to compete at this year's nationals are required to submit an SA Sharks Nomination form. Please complete this asap so that teams can be finalised. BASA encorages all members to consider going to nationals. It is a great way to improve your skill and gain experience competing at a higher level. You also get to meet other like-minded broomballers and represent your state at a national tournament!
The SA Sharks nomination form can be found via the BASA members area here or from the 2018 nationals information page in the Sharks area (requires login). Please note that an upfront $60 registration fee is required to be paid on sign up.
Further information about nationals can be found on the nationals information page and the host ACTBA's website and event facebook page.
BASA members, due to ice maintenance there will be no Broomball games next week, 13th March. This maintenance includes a total defrost where they will repair many pipes underneath and repaint the lines. This could potentially be a 2-week process, but they are hoping for only 1, so please keep an ear out regarding when we resume.
We are looking at hosting the first of the referee course, hosted by Alan, during our usual time slot. If you are interested please contact the basa secretary by email. This is a good chance to start the process of becoming a BASA accredited referee.
There is a potential that we can hold some fast-four games on half of the large ice between 7.15-9.15. This would be at a cost of $20 each, and would need definite numbers by Friday 9th March so that it can be booked. This will only be booked if we have 15 people.
BASA is holding a pub crawl on Saturday 3rd February, starting at The Wheatsheaf Hotel at 4:30pm. The Wheaty's annual street party will be taking place the same day so there will be food trucks and plenty of entertainment to begin our evening.
We'll stay at the Wheaty for 2 hrs and then jump on the tram and head into the city. We will continue to update the Facebook event if you want to catch up with us later in the evening.
T-shirt sizes need be collected and finalised by mid this week (10th January). Men's and Women's sizes available. Please let Sally (Assassins) know, message us on the Facebook event or email the committee ASAP.
Tonight (19/12) will be the last round of games before Christmas. Please join us at The Wheatsheaf after your game for some beer and pizza (donated by The Wheatsheaf - thanks to Simon for organising).
Games will resume with round 9 on the 9th January 2018.
We wish all our members an enjoyable, restful and safe holiday period and we will see you all on the ice in the new year!
