You only need four players to start a game of basketball.
If you are unable to field a team of four players for a game for any reason (including school camps, confirmations, communions, family holidays or player illness or injury) and you cannot arrange fill ins as per above, the Coach or Team Manager can call a walkover. If this occurs the Coach or Team Manager must immediately notify the Aberfeldie Jets Admin Officer via text on 040 77 51 338 so the Club can notify the KBA of the walkover and notify the opposition, venue supervisor and referees in a timely manner.
Notified walkovers will incur a monetary penalty equal to the amount of the scoresheet component of the game fee for their team only. After three (3) such walkovers in any one season a team may be disqualified. To be a valid notified walkover, the Aberfeldie Jets Admin Officer must notify the KBA prior to 11.59pm on the Wednesday before the scheduled game.
Walkovers not meeting the criteria above will be deemed to be un-notified walkovers and will incur a penalty double that stipulated above. After two (2) un- notified walkovers, the KBA will review the viability of that team with the relevant club, and it may be disqualified.
In the case of a walkover, all registered players of the team receiving the walkover will be awarded a game qualification towards finals eligibility.
Where a team in the finals gives a notified walkover, team’s finishing below this team shall be promoted to fill the relevant positions.
The Club will incur the costs of the walkover penalty fee.
