SUMMARY INFORMATION

HEAT POLICY

The heat policy will of course be in play on all courts. The temperature reading is conducted on courts 2 and 5 at Boronia and courts 1 and 5 at the SBC, What might have confused some people is that the temperature can be read at the door at Boronia and in the meeting room at the SBC without the need to go on court. Temperature sensors are located on the front of the score benches that takes the reading for the 3 courts located on each side. The sensors relays the temperature, in real time to the display unit which is accessed by the doorkeepers. The Doorkeepers check the unit for 2 separate temperatures prior to the start of each game.

Once the temperature reaches, and exceeds the 32 degrees Celsius, the Referee Supervisor is informed and the Heat Policy of an additional 2 timeouts per half is implemented. The temperatures and the time is then recorded on the KBI Temperature Record Sheet for each session.
If the temperature then goes below the 32 degrees Celsius, the Heat Policy is no longer implemented. If the temperature reaches the 36 degrees Celsius, as per Heat Policy guidelines, games on those courts will be cancelled.

FEE POLICY

To be considered financial for an upcoming season, the player must complete payment by the commencement of the season.

Failing to meet this payment date means a player may not be selected for next season until payment
for previous and current season have been made in full.

If player wishes to transfer to another club outstanding fees must be paid before Ranges grants clearance.

PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Associations and leagues should usually allow parents and close relatives to take photographs and video tape games or training provided the parent or relative is known to the association. As a courtesy, the coach or manager of the opposition team should also be notified of the intention to photograph or video the game.

Coaches who wish to video their own team’s games or training for training purposes should also normally be allowed to do so. Again, the opposition should be informed. Parents of the coaches own team should be advised by the coach if it is intended to regularly video games or training and the reason for it.

Referee coaches wishing to video games for training or evaluation purposes should advise the teams of their intentions prior to the game.

Some coaches desire to scout teams that they will be playing in the future and a convenient way of doing this is to video the game. If this is to occur then both teams should be advised in advance. However, this should usually be allowed.

Should any person take objection to the photographing or videoing, they should be asked the reason why they object. It should be explained to them that normal policy in these circumstances is that the photography or videoing should be allowed. However, if the person objecting has a legitimate and strong reason why the objection is made, then a bar should be placed on the photography or videoing. A strong reason may be that the child concerned is the subject of contested custody proceedings or has been the subject of violence or threats and publication of a video or photograph may compromise the safety of the child.

Associations should exercise common sense in this matter, bearing in mind the above policy.

RULE 2.4.4

Knox Junior Domestic rules call for teams to be placed in a grade in which they will be competitive. On occasions there will be teams which are significantly stronger than all other teams in A grade thus making the grade uncompetitive. This situation is dealt with by rule 2.4.4 which requires a panel to observe the team and if it is agreed that the team is too strong for A grade, offers the following options;

  • Split the team.
  • Move one or two of the strongest players up an age group.
  • Move the entire team up an age group.

The club shall be represented at the grading meeting by the coach of the team in question, a member of the executive committee and the age group coordinator. Where the club has the potential to field two competitive teams in A grade (i.e. from two existing A grade teams or one A grade team and one strong AR team) the coach of the second team shall also be present.
The club will oppose any change unless it can be clearly demonstrated that the team is too strong to be considered competitive with all other teams in A grade. If this can be established or if the direction from the grading panel is that rule 2.4.7 will be applied the club will proceed as follows.
Where the club is in a position to field two or more A grade teams the teams in question will be re-selected. This process will be carried out by the coaches of the teams and the age group co-ordinator in consultation with the grade secretary and the grade secretary liaison.
If the club cannot field a second team in A grade one or two of the strongest players will be moved to the next age group and to a grade not lower than B. If two players are nominated to move up they shall comprise one player from each of the following categories; guard/small forward, forward/centre.
Where two players are moved up to the next age group the coach of the #1 team shall have the choice of a player from the #2 team as a replacement.
Where the age group in question is under 14 or older and all players in the team are section 3 or 4 the option of moving the entire team up an age group may be taken as the first preference. The final decision to take this option will be the prerogative of the coach.
