In order to participate in the league, each player must sign the team waiver. Waivers can be downloaded by clicking here. Captains need to print, have all players sign, and turn in the first night of play. Players not present the first week of play will still be required to sign a waiver with our staff before participating. An LoneStar SSC staff member will keep your team waiver at the field, or a new one can be printed out. Players who sign up as individuals, agree to the waiver electronically when they register.
All LoneStar SSC participants must be 21 years of age or older prior to their first scheduled game.
Players that have participated in Division 1 Collegiate or Professional sports must be a minimum of 2 years removed from participation to be eligible to play in a similar LoneStar SSC sport.
Players may only be on one roster for any given sport on a given night, regardless of if multiple divisions are offered.
LoneStar SSC reserves the right to request a photo ID from any player at any time for any reason.
Roster checks will be performed by an LoneStar SSC Gameday Coordinator at the request of the challenging team. Only individual players may be challenged. Entire teams may not be challenged. The challenging team must provide legitimate reasons for submitting a roster check request. Challenging teams must report their intention to initiate a roster check to an LoneStar SSC Official as soon as possible to ensure the preservation of playing time. Teams lose the ability to challenge a player’s eligibility after the halfway point.
Everyone loves a little competition, but one team dominating a league season after season can spoil the fun for everybody.
If a team retaining more than 3 players has won 3 championships in consecutive seasons for which they have been registered, the SSC will have the option to, in its discretion, request that team to form 2 or more separate teams to promote parity in the league or withdraw their registration. That team will then have the opportunity to form 2 separate teams with each subsequent roster approved by the SSC.
We are all adults, and the LoneStar SSC expects all participants to act like it. Unsportsmanlike behavior may result in that player being ejected from the game. An ejection may result in further suspension from participation in current and / or future SSC sports. An ejected player(s) is required to leave the premises immediately – refusal to leave the premises may result in a team forfeit and / or increased length of suspension.
OVERLY COMPETITIVE PLAYERS:
All SSC sports are intended to be recreational. Any player who is deemed to be excessively competitive and/or overly aggressive may be removed from competition at the discretion of an SSC staff member.
LoneStar SSC t-shirts are your team’s uniforms. All players must wear their current LoneStar SSC uniform (past season’s uniforms are not permitted) to participate and any player not wearing his/her uniform will be will be sidelined for that game. Missing or swapped uniform players’ names will be taken and if they are not on your roster, a loss will be assessed for that game.
Names on uniforms, numbers, cut-off sleeves, corporate logos, etc, are permitted, as long as they do not cover any logos originally printed on the shirts.
If the forfeiting team does not have enough players to play an officiated exhibition game, a $50 forfeit fine will be assessed. This $50 fine will go towards your opponent’s bar tab for the following week. Provided the fine is paid on time, the bar tab voucher can be obtained from the league director the following week. Teams that receive a forfeit fine must use it the following week or lose it. If there are enough players of the forfeiting team that are able to play, and an officiated game is played, no forfeit fine will be assessed.
All fines must be paid before your next scheduled game by either cash or check (made payable to the LoneStar SSC). If payment is not received by the end of this next scheduled game, your team will be assessed a loss for this game. Teams will not be allowed to play any proceeding games until the fine is paid in full. Teams that have any fines from the last regular season game will not be allowed back into the LoneStar SSC for any sport until these fines are paid in full.
If game forfeiture notice is submitted to the SSC via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5:00 PM on the preceding day (Friday for weekend games), no forfeit fine will be assessed.
The minimum number of players to play an officiated exhibition game, and avoid the forfeit fine, is 2.
Whenever possible, the SSC will separate divisions based on playing experience and/or ability. In the event multiple divisions are not possible, all players will be placed into a single division.
Division placement for all teams will be at the sole discretion of the SSC.
Any team that wins a super social championship will automatically be placed in the social division for the next season in which they participate. Top finishers from the previous season may also be moved up at the discretion of the SSC.
Any player, or team based on the majority of their players, that is determined to be in the incorrect division may, at any point during the season, be asked to switch divisions at the discretion of the SSC.
Whenever possible, the SSC will hold a single-elimination playoff tournament after the regular season has concluded. The number of teams to advance to this playoff tournament will vary from season to season based on team records and available venue space. The playoff tournament may be held on a day and time other than the normal day and time of regular season games.
