Due Date

Once your application form is completed and approved, you will be considered a member and placed on a
team. The number of weeks played in a season will be dependent upon events hosted at the Club, snow
days and emergency closings. Members cannot transfer their membership to another individual.

Teams of More Than 4
Should you choose to have more than 4 members on your team, all players must pay full membership fees applicable to the section.

Formation of Teams
Any team of less than 4 players may be assigned a person on the waiting list at the discretion of the Board. Should a vacancy occur on a team during the season, a person on the waiting list with appropriate experience will fill the vacancy at the league reps discretion.

Pro-rating Section Fees
Joining a league part-way through the season, will result in a pro-rated fee to be determined by the Management and Board.

Bye or Rotation System
In the event that your chosen league is full, a bye or rotation system to an alternate night may occur. In a bye system, a team would not play a particular week depending upon the number of teams registered. In a rotation system, a team would be scheduled to play on another designated night in rotation during the season.

The lockers will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Each member can only apply for ONE locker. Members can either use their own lock or use the Club lock on the locker. If you are using your own lock, please return the Club lock on the locker back to staff . At the end of the season, please leave the club lock in your locker when you clear out your belongings. You may obtain your locker at the Open House or later.
