Post your scores

Just a reminder, that ALL teams must have their scores posted.

We are missing several scores in all leagues (Men’s, Ladies, Senior Men’s and Co-ed). Please review your team schedules and ensure that your team is up-to-date.

This email was sent out to all league coaches on Friday, May 10. This is a reminder email on several league items for ALL players.

Rosters:  Everyone who is playing on your team must be registered on your roster, even if they come out for one game. All players need to accept the waivers from SPN.

All members of your team must have eight games played (icebreaker games count)

Roster is frozen on June 15. If you need to add anyone after this you must contact Loretta directly to be added. Rosters will be printed for year-end tournaments.

 Scorekeeping: Please ensure your books are up-to-date with every game. These books are used to verify the eight games played prior to playoffs. At any time any executive member can ask for them. It is important for both teams to keep a score (even if there isn’t a scorekeeper on the bench).
