Good old fashion home court advantage

Looks like one club in u16 and u18 boys and girls will enjoy some good old fashion home court advantage in the first round of finals. Good luck to all the travelling teams.

finals are played at several venues - so any club with teams in that grade will get a "home" final. the other way is wait til the last round and then schedule games at neutral venues - but you would have individual games everywhere - at least this way all that age group know what they are doing.

Looks like Norwood and Tigers will have a blast driving through peak hour traffic for a 6pm 'home' finals

Do not suggest clubs have the advantage at their own doing. The games are scheduled by BSA.. The U12 players of this club you suggest have the home court advantage are travelling to Hillcrest this week and Morphetvale next week ..... so who has the home court advantage then…. It is what it is.. Shall I go in to the other age groups as well….

No anonn just the div 1 u16, u18 girls and boys - that will do. I'm not sure if anyone else is really looking at other ages or divs.

It is unfair that these teams have the finals every year. Why don't they do it the fair way. Higher team gets home final?

Don't some BSA workers have affiliations with clubs?

Hoops SA and South Australia. Where parents whingeing about junior sport has become an art form.

The Golden Arches on Crossroad/Goodwood Rd have been purchased by Collingwood FC to counter the canteen effect. Ask BA for club vouchers!

LOL + You can hear Joe Hockey being interviewed on that one:
"Poor people don't have kids playing basketball"

But mathais would be doing the maths: 10 kids per team, 10 to 20 parents per team, 6 teams per hour, three hours play per night that's at least $2,610 profit, and a volunteer on the till! Get me some shares!

And that finals are scheduled the same every year due to the show closing Wayville.

Ans that running home and away finals would mean opening a stadium for maybe 1 game. And that might include hiring the court when they can use their own for free.

Not to mention the issue of paying for uic, ref coach and door person for one game.

you are a dick Wolf..

you need to get in a Canteen and see just how little the profit is..

your ridiculous numbers suggest every team, every player, every player's parents buy something from Canteen

find out some real figures and you'll find that profit figure you came up with would be after a month or two..

Not to mention you need to pay your staff, even on quiet nights, through fee reductions or actually wages. Plus the canteen loses money during the day cause sturt have to open for the school. Before sturt took over it was averaging a $5k loss over the year.
