     The Wessex Basketball Association Newsletter




                   Volume 10, Issue 1 – DECEMBER 2010

   Welcome to the latest edition of Listen Up. The Wessex Basketball Association committee
   would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year and
   we hope the bad weather hasn’t caused you too many problems. Please remember if you have
   any problems or questions just ask the relevant committee member by email at the relevant
   address which is published on the web site http://www.wessexbasketball.co.uk/ . The
   following points are for your action/information as required:

1. Electronic payments for online registration (Registrar Chris Bunnett):

   When you are making a payment on line for registrations please ensure you give the EB
   Registration form Number. If the payment is for something else quote what the payment is for
   in the reference. This will ensure the Treasurer can track your payment.

2. Wessex Cup competitions update (Secretary Richard Bell):

   a. Ladies cup 1st round starts week commencing 8th January 2011.

   b. Men's cup 2nd round starts week commencing 28th January 2011.

   c. Referees will be appointed for out of area teams from the Quarter finals onwards should
      they reach them.

3. Points from the League Chairman (Trevor Funnel):

   a. Transfers. A reminder to clubs/teams that completed transfer forms should be sent to the
      League Chairman, not any other committee member. The transfer is not complete until
      the League Chairman has authorised it.

   b. Table Officiating. As I go around the league as a referee I am becoming increasingly
      frustrated by the number of teams who treat the table officiating as an afterthought. Too
      many teams turn up and start catching up with their mates and shooting around, when in
      fact someone should be sorting the table out. I've lost count of the number of games that
      haven't started on time because the scorebook/table is not ready.

   c. Referees. Home team secretaries must confirm games at least 7 days in advance, not 3 or
      4, but 7. Confirmation also means you get a reply from the referee, simply sending an e-
      mail or text is not sufficient, you must get a reply for the game to be considered
      confirmed with the relevant official.
 4. Men’s Open Divisions update as at 20 December 2010 (Martin Marshall):

5. Women’s League update (Jon Clausen Berg):

      This has been sent to all club secretaries and will be published on the web site. Due to its
      format we are unable to include it in Listen Up.

6. Wessex Junior Cup Competitions Update (Clifford Chen):

      a. Despite all efforts made there were only a hand full of teams entered into the above
         competition in different age groups. Therefore, the Committee has agreed that it will be
         more sensible to postpone the competition to the summer of 2011, so that more teams can
         join without the pressure of fulfilling the EB Junior National League commitments as
         well as the Wessex Junior Cup games.

      b. Wessex Basketball will be happy to refund any entry money already paid for the
         Wessex Junior Cup, however, if you are intending to play, we are happy to hold on to
         your application and include your team in the competition in Summer 2011.

      c. More details on dates, timings and the competition format will be published once the
         committee had a chance to discuss the Junior Competition in early part of 2011.

      d. It is appreciated that this news may be disappointing for those teams who have already
         entered and were looking forward to the 2010/11 competition, however, I am confident
         that by staging the Wessex Junior Cup in the summer, there will be more teams entered
         and our young players will have more basketball to look forward to.

7.    Diary Dates:

      a. Caister Festival of Basketball Weekend – 6 to 8 May 2011.

      b. Wessex Cup Finals Day – 14 May 2011.
