FORFEITS AND FILL INS

Please read through the below options regarding forfeits and fill ins. If you need further explanation or are unsure please contact our office.

WHAT CAN I DO TO AVOID A FORFEIT?

You can start all games with 4 players.


JUNIOR DOMESTIC

Contact your club or other teams in your club (Email or Facebook groups) and ask if someone from a younger age group or a lower division is available to fill in. (Players are only permitted to register and play for 1 club though out the season)

Junior Players can “PLAY UP” up to 3 times in a season without cost.

SENIOR DOMESTIC

Contact other teams from lower divisions to fill in.

Put a post in our Facebook Fill in Page asking if anyone is available > Mandurah Basketball – Fill in Players

NOTIFY A FORFEIT

If your team is unable to field a team then please contact the Mandurah Basketball Association as soon as possible.

Once MBA is notified of a forfeit and the opposition team has been contacted, this process is irreversible.

PROCESS OF NOTIFYING A FORFEIT

  1. Email at least 24 hours before to notify MBA of the forfeit.
  2. Phone our office regarding the email and to confirm notification. Leave a voicemail if the phone is unattended.

FORFEITS

Failure to start the game on time when a team does not have at least four players present and ready to play will result in a 2-point penalty being awarded to the opposition for each full minute that the game is delayed (with the exception of the U9 competition).

If a team does not have four players who have legally taken the court within 10 minutes of the scheduled starting time, they shall lose by forfeit.

NOTIFIED FORFEITS

Where sufficient notice has been given (per Bylaws), no fine will be levied on the first offence for the season. Subsequent notified forfeits may be fined $30 at the discretion of the Domestic Director.

UN-NOTIFIED FORFEITS

Where insufficient notice has been given, a fine of $60 may apply for the first and subsequent offences at the discretion of the Domestic Director.

ILLEGAL PLAYERS

Where a team has fielded an illegal player an unnotified forfeit will apply, and a $30 fine may be issued at the discretion of the Domestic Director.

FILL INS AND SGVS

FILL IN OR PLAYING UP PLAYERS

  • Players can fill in for any competition which they are eligible to play in.
  • Fill in players must purchase a Single Game Voucher (SGV) prior to the game.
  • Players who fill in without purchasing a SGV will cause that team to forfeit.

CASUAL PLAYERS

  • Any player not registered with any domestic club will be permitted to take the court for up to three games per season as a “casual player”, utilising a Single Game Voucher (SGV) at a fee set up by MBA.
  • The player must be an eligible player and must currently be affiliated with BWA.
  • The player must purchase a SGV from the Games Controller prior to the commencement of the gametime.
  • The player details must be manually added to the scoresheet, and their SGV number noted.

FIFO PLAYERS

  • With the exception of FIFO/DIDO players, non-financial playing up, fill in and casual players are not permitted to play in finals unless they become financial prior to the finals and have played the required number of qualifying regular season games for the finals team.
