At WSC, we understand that life can be unpredictable, and that most situations take precedent over recreational sports. With this in mind, in an effort to preserve the quality of the league, and to limit last minute cancellations, we have chosen to enforce the following forfeit policy effective today. This policy will help us to better prepare if subs are needed and to ensure that WSC is able to respect everyone’s individual schedules.
Thank you in advance for understanding.
All teams must notify the league director by 11:59PM the day before their match if they foresee the possibility that their team will forfeit. If a team fails to do so, the following penalties will ensue:
1st Late Cancellation (per Season)
Team will be charged $50. Invoice will be sent to the team captain. Teams will be unable to take the court in future games until the fee is settled.
2nd Late Cancellation (per Season)
Team will be charged $100. Invoice will be sent to the team captain. Teams will be unable to take the court in future games until the fee is settled.
3rd Late Cancellation (per Season)
Team will be prohibited from participating in the league for remainder of the season. No refunds will be issued.
Notification of a potential forfeit will not automatically result in an official forfeit. This notification simply allows the league director ample time to communicate with the opposing team and to do everything within their ability to ensure that the game will happen. This includes attempting to secure subs to assist the team that is in need of additional players. Ultimately, WSC wants to host enjoyable matches every week. Inviting subs is one of the best ways to grow the league. We encourage everyone to invite new players throughout the season’s regular play to sub and check out the league. If a team manages to find players in the hours preceding their match, the game will continue as scheduled.
We strongly encourage to utilize our WSC Basketball Members-Only Facebook Page to find subs!
