For those of you who didn't know, I play basketball, and this page is dedicated to my personal basketball.
If you live in Melbourne, or just visiting Melbourne, I'm inviting you to come watch us play, or if you are disabled and want to play basketball then come along and see what it's all about. There are a variety of skill levels, so it doesn't matter if you can't play that well, or if you play "Like Mike", there is going to be something there for you. Or even if you're not interested in playing, come along and meet... ME!!! I'm a very approachable person, so if you do come to basketball, just walk straight up to me and introduce yourself. I don't bite... Hard. 8-[)
I play in Division 2 for the Power House Basketball Committee, so therefore I only post stuff about Division 2. If you play in, or intend on playing in, another Division and you want to know about those Divisions, then Click Here to go to the official page of the Power House Basketball Club. Although there is a women's championship, women are allowed to play with the men in any division that suits them best, so that women of all skill levels can play.
There are 31 teams in the whole competition, spread over 5 different divisions. The divisions are:
Championship Men: 6 teams
Championship Women: 5 Teams
Division Two: 6 Teams
Division Three: 8 Teams
Division Four: 6 Teams
The teams in the division I play for (Division 2) are:
With there only being 2 basketball courts at Hawthorn, and the continuing expansion of Power House Basketball Committee, it meant that they had to find another venue to accomodate all the teams. They found Methodist Ladies College (MLC), moved Division 2 over to that venue, and left all other Divisions at Hawthorn. So make sure that if you intend on playing for, or watching, a different Division, that you go to the Hawthorn venue.

For Division 2
The first game starts at 6:40pm, with the other possible times being 7:15pm & 7:50pm.
The games consist of 2 halves, which are 15 minutes each, with 5 minutes in between halves.
For all other Divisions
The first game starts at 6:30pm, with the other possible times being 7:05pm, 7:40pm, 8:15pm, 8:50pm.
Each game consists of 2 halves, which are 15 minutes each, with 5 minutes in between halves. Depending on if they're running late, there might be a little less time between halves.
The Finals are 2 halves, with 20 minutes per half.
In regular season games, the clock only stops on a referees time out, IF the ref feels that it would be unfair to one team to let it continue. Only in the Grand Final does the clock stop in the final TWO minutes of the game. It will stop when the ball needs to be inbounded (for any reason), when a time out is called by either team and when there is a foul. The clock will restart once play resumes.
There are drinks (coffee, soft drinks/soda) and food (hot dogs, sausages, dim sims, chocolates) available for a small price.
Please Note: The snacks are only available at Hawthorn.
There are 2 lots of Finals per year; Summer Season Finals and Winter Season Finals. Because the summer season is shorter than winter, the Finals are also shorter. Here is how the Finals are played in both seasons...
