What does a forfeit mean and how can i avoid getting one?
A team forfeits if they fail to have the minimum number of players present at game time or if a team fails to show up for their scheduled game they will receive a forfeit. If a team forfeits for what ever reason that team will lose it’s $15.00 forfeit fee. It is the entire teams responsibility to know when it’s games are scheduled and to show up on time (it is recommended that teams show up 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time so that games may begin on time). If a team forfeits twice it is removed from the league and will not be allowed to compete in playoffs.
Teams may also lose their forfeit fee if they fail to send a representative to the mandatory captain’s meeting for that sport or use an ineligible player during the season/event.
