Forfeit Fees introduced for Spring

July 6, 2015 - 5 years ago

This Spring, we are bringing in a new rule, which is tough, but fair. Below are some Q&A for you and your team to go over. If you have any questions, you know where to find us!

If your team forfeits more than once in a season, you will be charged a $60 fee payable to your opposition. 

Why are we doing this? To make it fair on everyone. We don't want any players to miss out on their games. You all pay seasonal fee's and we don't think it's fair for you to miss out on getting your moneys worth. 

How can you avoid paying the fee? By making sure you have a full squad every week. 

Is it OK to bring substitutes? Of course, just make sure they sign an Urban Rec Member form/waiver. 

Is it OK to borrow players from other teams? If you do not have enough players to field the side, you will need to forfeit. You can then choose to borrow players from another team, and play a friendly game. 

If we forfiet, and still play a friendly, will we be forced to pay the fee? No, if we can organise a friendly, we will not fine you. 

What about exceptional circumstances? Of course, if something has happened, please talk to us, and we will consider your situation. If we have enough notice we can make sure we get a friendly match going. 

Can we ask to have our game time moved, so we don't need to forfeit? We will do everything in our power to make sure you and your team can play your scheduled game. If moving your game doesnt inconvenice your opposition, or any other teams in the league, we will try and move it. There is no guarentee we can do this.

Please wait...
