Player Eligibility For Playoffs
Players must play at least 2 games and be on a team’s roster with a 2017 Central Ball Hockey Summer League waiver in order to be eligible to participate during the playoffs. In order to help ensure that teams do not bring in ‘ringers’, only players who are on the team roster prior to the second-to-last game of the regular season will be eligible to participate in the playoffs. Captains, you have up until Monday August 7th to add any more Urban Rec members to your roster in order for those players to be eligible to play for the playoffs. No Exceptions. During the captains’ meeting at a playoff match, prior to the start of the game, warnings will be given to both teams that after the game starts, any player(s) who are not on the roster, will lead to an automatic forfeit loss for their team. At this time, the timekeeper may also do a roster check, and if the player they choose is not on the roster or cannot prove that it is his name on the roster with valid photo ID, or their ID does not match a name on the roster sheet they have, that player will be ineligible to play for that game. As this is PRIOR to the game beginning, then the team will NOT suffer a forfeit loss. At Half-Time, the timekeeper may choose to do another roster check. At this time, teams may request which opposing player they would like checked.If a player chosen cannot produce valid photo ID, or their ID does not match a name on the roster sheet that they have, the team in violation will automatically forfeit (lose) the game.The second half may be played as a friendly exhibition at the discretion of the Event Coordinator.
