Forfeits

The team captain has the responsibility of notifying all team members of the day/date/time and location of all scheduled events. Forfeits are to be avoided at all costs. Forfeits are detrimental to the program and to a team's participants. The scheduling of each IM game requires making arrangements for the facility, personnel, and the equipment as well as the participants.

AVOID FORFEITS! The following procedures will be observed with regard to forfeits:

  1. If a team does not have the minimum number of players at the designated game time, they will be given 5 minutes to obtain the correct number of players before the game is declared a forfeit. Players must be in sight to be considered present.
  2. A team that does not have the minimum number players after the 5-minute period has expired shall forfeit the game. In the event that both teams do not show up within that time, both will be assessed forfeits.
  3. If a team forfeits twice during the season on separate days, they will be dropped from the league with NO CHANCE of being re-instated.
