Team Captains must:
- Know the policies of the league outlined here as well as the rules of their specific sport.
- Ensure that their teammates are aware of these policies and rules.
- Ensure that all required equipment is present for all games.
- Provide a team roster with contact information
To be a sanctioned player, you must be listed on a current team roster. Teams that are using non-sanctioned players may be asked to leave the leagues without refund.
Physical or Unsportsmanlike Play:
Play that is rough or overtly aggressive, taunting, or un-sportsmanlike acts (name calling, threats, intimidation and discriminatory behaviours of any kind) will not be tolerated and may result in the infracting player/team being ejected from the league without refund.
PLEASE NOTE: teams can and will be held responsible for their players’ conduct. If someone on your squad is behaving inappropriately, it is YOUR responsibility to keep him or her from doing so.
Fighting/Punching: Instances of this behavior will be cause for immediate expulsion for all individuals involved, whether they are the instigators or retaliating.
Drinking of alcoholic beverages at league facilities/venues by players or spectators (indoor or outdoor) is strictly forbidden. Offenders will be asked to leave the league without refund: no exceptions!
Incidents Which Result in Loss of Permits:
Any team or individual involved with any incident that results in the loss of a permit or which causes harm to the relationship between the league and a facility may be expelled from the league without refund. Incidents can include, but are not limited to, the consumption of alcohol and/or illegal drugs at a facility, damages or vandalism to a facility (not directly resulting from the nature of sports), and abusive behaviour towards facility staff and/or league staff.
Emergency Contact List:
All team captains are advised to carry a list of emergency contact numbers for players on their team. In the event of an injury/emergency, these numbers can be utilized to notify the player’s family in cases where medical treatment/attention is required. Captains are also advised to include a list of hospitals with emergency room service on this page. It will take the guesswork out of situations that are stressful and time sensitive.
First aid is the responsibility of the team captain. Ice packs, band aids, tensors and athletic tape are all things which can be used in the event of minor scrapes and bruises. There may be a first-aid kit on-site at some venues, but please be prepared for all situations.
Blood During Games:
Any player who begins to bleed during a game must leave the playing area immediately. This player cannot return to the game until the bleeding has stopped and the wound has been sufficiently covered.
Injuries requiring further medical attention other than basic first aid must be reported to the league by team captains or co-captains.
It is the team captain’s responsibility to report the scores from each game by 5:00 pm the following day. Scores that have not been approved by 1:00 pm on the third following day will be automatically approved. Scores listed as being Disputed will not be approved until the teams agree on the score. Scores are to be reported via the website link.
Wins are worth 2 points, ties are worth 1 and losses are worth 0. Ties in the standings will be broken first by head-to-head play, and then on the points +/-.
Defaulting League Games:
Teams that default more than 2 games may be asked to leave the league without refund. If you know you may not be able to field a full team, please call the other captain in advance; you should attend with as many people as you can and play pick up…it is the fun and polite thing to do. Captains may agree to waive the rules regarding the minimum people but this should be decided before the game starts. IF IT IS AGREED THAT THE GAME COUNTS, IT COUNTS!
During the regular season, team captains can use ANYONE as a player for their team as long as they are listed on a team roster.
Teams that use players who are not listed on a team roster may be subject to default and/or ejection from the league.
Players must attend a minimum of 3 games in order to be eligible for playoff games.
Facility Care and Respect:
Respect the schools: put things back where you found them, take all of your items with you and put trash in provided receptacles. Please be out by the hour specified on your schedule. It will either be 8:00pm or 9:30pm. If you abuse this, game times will be made earlier and the league could lose it’s permits leaving you with NO REFUND and NO GAMES. This is in your hands. Enter and exit ONLY by the specified areas. Do not wander the schools in areas other than the gyms. Showers are not provided.
Foul Weather Policy:
Unless winter weather causes the closure of the venue, games proceed as scheduled. The league will contact you if the venue is closed and the game is cancelled. To ensure your opponent will be attending a game during bad weather conditions, please contact the other captain.
The league attempts to ensure that all venues are safe and suitable for play. All games are self-officiated and thus a league representative is often not present at games. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the captains and all participants to inspect the playing area prior to playing their game to ensure it is safe for play and to make their OWN decision regarding personal safety in terms of a scheduled venue, playing style and transportation to an event.
If captains/participants/teams decide a venue is unsafe for play and thus not to play at the scheduled venue at the scheduled time for personal safety reasons, please contact the league to discuss alternate arrangements and/or rescheduling of the game in question.
Members’ contact information is provided to other team captains in the event that they need to communicate regarding league issues. Groups or individuals who take or use this information for any other purpose than communicating about league activity will be ejected without appeal or refund and prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law.
Minimum Age Requirements for Players:
All players must be 19 years of age or older.
Spectators at Leagues and Events:
Spectators are welcome to view leagues and events. Spectators are considered to be the equivalent of team members; as such, their actions are the responsibility of the team captain and each spectator must abide by all league rules and policies. Members that are suspended or ejected from any programs are not welcome to attend as spectators.
