Code of Conduct
All teams and players are bound by the provisions of the SBA Member Protection By-Law and Codes of Conduct. Details are available on the SBA website.
All players, coaches and spectators are also bound by the provisions of the Beaumaris Sharks Basketball Club Code of Conduct. Refer to https://sharksbasketballclub.org.au/teams-2/code-of-conduct/.
Under the By-Laws of the Southern Basketball Association, a penalty of $130 is imposed on all clubs for each team that may forfeit a game. A game will be considered a forfeit/walkover if there is an insufficient number of players available to take court. The minimum number of players is four (4).
It is important to ensure all players understand that they are required to notify the Club of their intended absence well in advance (this is especially important for small teams). If there are insufficient players it is your responsibility to notify the Team Manager.
The Team Manager will try to arrange fill-ins for that game or alternatively notify the SBA that the game will need to be forfeited. However, the $130 penalty can be avoided if seven days notice is given to the SBA.
The Club will honour the first fine on behalf of the forfeiting team on the understanding that there is a legitimate reason.
Thereafter, teams who have had a walkover declared against them will be fined $140. The fine must be paid within seven (7) days of the walkover match or prior to the next fixtured game (whichever is sooner). If the fine remains unpaid, no premiership points shall be awarded to that team and each subsequent game will be declared a 20-0 walkover.
