CARD FOR EACH SPORT HE PLAYS (ICE HOCKEY, DECKHOCKEY OR WIFFLEBALL.)  THERE WILL BE A CHARGE OF $5.00 FOR EACH CARD.  ALL PLAYERS MUST HAVE THEIR CARDS PRIOR TO PARTICIPATING IN LEAGUE PLAY.

 

1.) ONLY THOSE PLAYERS WHO HAVE SIGNED THE MASTER ROSTER, A LIABILITY WAIVER AND HAVE RECEIVED AN I.D. CARD WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR LEAGUE PLAY.  ANY INDIVIDUAL WHO PLAYS IN A LEAGUE GAME BEFORE BEING REGISTERED WILL SUBJECT THE TEAM HE PLAYED FOR TO A FORFEITURE FOR THAT PARTICULAR GAME.

 

 2.) FOUR MINOR PENALTIES IN ONE GAME OR A COMBINATION OF ONE MAJOR PLUS TWO MINORS OR TWO MAJORS CONSTITUTE A GAME MISCONDUCT.
