Congratulations on your team making the finals for the Winter 2018 Season!
All fixtures for semi finals are now confirmed and are online (click the button “NORMAL SEASON” and click on “FINALS” to view).
Please note that all finals are all a two game series. All semi finals are ‘elimination’ finals with 1v4 and 2v3 (and 5v8 and 6v7 for joint divisions). The winners from these two games will progress to the grand final for that division.
All player eligibilities are now online at http://sharksbasketball.com.au/finals-information/. Any concerns about eligibilities must be emailed to myself at least 48 hours before a team’s first finals game. Stadium staff on the day have no discretion over eligibilities.
Outstanding forfeit fines and player registrations
Teams/players will not be permitted to take the court if any team has any outstanding forfeit fine or registration amounts. If a player is not listed on the iPad it means they are not registered or have not qualified for finals. If you are unsure about the registration status of a player, please email us. Again, stadium staff on the day have no discretion over this, any concerns must be brought up with the office prior to the day of the game.
This season SPBA will supply one scorer per final. Each team is still required to provide a scorer. The referee scorer will oversee the score bench to provide an unbiased party.
Finals Game Fees
Game fees for finals will be as below for both Semi Finals & Grand Finals:
JUNIORS: $10 per player
SENIORS: $65 per team
The increased finals game fees go towards covering the cost of scorers, extended timing of games.
Grand Final Door Entry
Door Entry will be charged on all junior grand finals & U9s last game of the season.
Players: Free entry
One team coach and one team manager will also receive free entry. They must sign in at the front.
Door entry goes towards the cost of grand final awards, extended timing of games and extra staff.
Just a reminder that team registrations are now open online at www.sharksbasketball.com.au. Many divisions are expected to reach capacity before the close date, register ASAP to avoid disappointment.
