League and Playoff Participation Policy

League and Playoff Participation Policy

  • A team may play a regular season game with at most three (3) non-member players, with the full disclosure to the opposing captain and acceptance by that captain. In this way we can allow for newly recruited players, out-of-town visitors, or occasional pick-up players. Captains are encouraged to recruit substitute players from lower level teams or leagues in that season

  • Players may not be listed as a regular player on another roster within the same league.

  • Outdoor Leagues: Any non-member player may play a maximum of two (2) regular season games in outdoor leagues. After that point, (s)he must register as a HUC member in order to continue playing and where applicable (s)he must contact HUC and register for that league as well.

  • Indoor Leagues: Any non-member player may play a maximum of one (1) regular season game in normal indoor leagues. After that point, (s)he must register as a HUC member in order to continue playing and where applicable       (s)he must contact HUC and register for that league as well.

Playoff Participation Rules

  • Playoff participants MUST be a registered HUC member in good standing.

  • Be added to the team roster no later than the league roster deadline

    • Summer League – 2 weeks prior to the start of playoffs

    • All Other Leagues - 1 week prior to start of playoffs

    • In the absence of a defined roster deadline (ie. indoor leagues) the player must be added no later than one week prior to playoffs beginning

  • Play a league minimum amount of regular season games as follows:

  • Games in a season

  • Number of required regular season games attended

  • 11-15

  • 3 games minimum

  • 7-10

  • 2 games minimum

  • 2-6

  • 1 game minimum

  • Participants may not participate on more than 1 team in the playoffs for the same league, they may only participate on 1 playoff team as a regular player, or as a qualified substitute who is not already participating in the playoffs for the same league. This includes multiple divisions in the same league.

Disciplinary Action

HUC relies on the honour system and on our team captains. Please abide by the Spirit of the Game when dealing with game issues. Remember, free-riding on the backs of registered HUC members is unfair and thus contravenes the Spirit of the Game.

If a team captain refuses a substitute player (according to the above rules), however the opposing captain chooses to play that player anyways, the game should be reported immediately to HUC and could be forfeited.

 

 

SUB VIOLATIONS

HUC will routinely check rosters during the season and playoffs. If there is a discrepancy we urge teams to report it immediately to our league convenors. If rosters are invalid, teams can be sanctioned.
