Rules

GENERAL RULES FOR ALL ASL LEAGUES

Augusta Sports Leagues, LLC is a locally owned and operated company that organizes and hosts recreational sports leagues for adults in the Augusta and Central Savannah River Area (CSRA). Leagues focus on providing fun factor as well as bringing individuals and teams together in a solid team-building environment. The rules set forth in this document are designed to increase a team’s level of enjoyment and safety within each league. These rules are to be adhered to at all times. We greatly appreciate any feedback from our teams/captains/players. Please take a few minutes to submit your insight
via email using the contact form on the website.

FORFEITS
If your team forfeits a match during the season, the following rules apply:
-The score will be indicated in favor of the team not at fault.
-You will be invoiced for $30 and the opposing team will be rewarded a gift certificate to a ASL sponsor bar (PLEASE NOTE: This fee does not apply to individual based teams).
-To avoid being charged a fee, you must notify the league office by email/contact form no later than 4pm on weekdays and 8am on weekends for your scheduled game of the day. Any team with a forfeit will automatically drop to the bottom of any tie-breaking situation in league standings. Teams will not be allowed to continue participation with an “open” forfeit invoice.

PAYMENT
If you have not completed payment by the start of the first scheduled game of the season, your team will not be allowed to participate. The team registration fee covers only a certain number of participants, which varies from league to league.

ROSTERS
A complete list of players is required for all teams participating with ASL. Your “team” fees cover a certain number of rostered players. Please see your league rules for details. A team may have more than the allotted number of players for an additional charge of $27.50 for each extra player over
the league limit. The website will automatically charge each player added to the roster after the team has reached the allotted roster limit. (Ex. Roster = 10. The 11th player will be charged the $27.50 when he/she is added to the team roster) All rosters are due in full by midnight of the final regular scheduled game of the season. To complete a roster, every individual is required to fill out the online waiver/roster form. Once a player has done so, they will automatically be added to the team roster. Players with pending rosters are not considering active on any team.
 
PICKUP PLAYERS
You may pick up a rostered player once from another team in the same league night/division/sport during the regular season.  Picking up of players is not allowed in playoffs. A team is NOT allowed to “pick up” a rostered player to create a sub for any match to become over full force. For example, basketball is a 5 player format. A team cannot pick up a player for the team’s 6th spot in any match.

WAIVERS
In order to participate in the league, each participant must fill out the online waiver/roster form and be over the age of 21. Players not present the first week of play will still be required to sign a waiver before participating. Any person not signing a waiver will be considered an ineligible and illegal player.
All players must also present a photo ID at the park to verify their completion of the waiver and to make sure the name on a team roster corresponds to the individual participating in the league.

PLAYER ELIGIBILITY/PROTESTS
Regular Season Eligibility:
-No player is allowed to be on two rosters within the same division or day.
-No more than two players are allowed to be on a team’s roster from a higher division.
-No player is allowed to substitute more than one time in an entire regular season.
-Prior to the start of each playoff game your team will be required to check in with photo identification. If a player is not listed on the roster they are not eligible to participate.

JERSEYS/TEAM SHIRTS
Each team is required to bring both light and dark colored uniforms (shirts) to each game to avoid conflicts.
The HOME team is always the team on the right of the schedule listings and is required to have dark colored uniforms. If a team supplies their own uniforms (must all be same color/logo/team info, etc.) They will have first preference on color. Therefore, it is vital to bring both light and dark color uniforms.

EFFECT: if the visiting team cannot change uniform color due to color conflict the visiting team will be required to forfeit.
-Basketball teams are REQUIRED to have shirts with numbers on FRONT AND BACK!

SCHEDULES
Teams may play more than one game per day/night, and/or play games on days/nights other than your regularly scheduled league day/night if necessary. ASL reserves the right to schedule regular/playoff games on days other than the league’s regularly scheduled day/night.

STANDINGS/SEEDING
Teams are seeded according to forfeits, head to head, point differential, points against and points for.

SPORTSMANSHIP
Any behavior deemed unacceptable by a representative of ASL may result in various game penalties including but not limited to game suspension and/or ejection from the league. This behavior includes but is not limited to:
-Intentional rough play before, during or after a league/tournament game
-Any verbal or non
-verbal confrontation with the opposing team, spectator or official

STAFF
To coordinate and run your league, ASL officials and/or staff will be available during normal business hours to help the league run as smoothly as possible. If you have questions regarding schedules, policies, rule interpretations, directions to the bar, etc. please email us at any time.

LEAGUE CANCELLATION/RAINOUT
Leagues may be cancelled due to weather conditions, dangerous or unplayable field conditions, facility constraints, etc. ASL makes every effort to play all scheduled games, thus we will not cancel games unless absolutely necessary.Therefore, if you are contacting ASL concerning a decision on a cancellation, remember we will not have an answer until close to the start of the first scheduled game of that day, sometimes within 1-2 hours prior to game time. If your league is cancelled, ASL staff will update twitter and facebook (twitter.com/playaugusta or facebook.com/playaugusta). It is then the captain's responsibility to inform all teammates of the cancellation. Depending on the time of cancellation, some teams will have to be notified on site. If we do cancel always follow the schedule as it appears on the website. The games that are cancelled will be made up towards the end of the season if time allows. ASL reserves the right to run a shortened season without a refund. ASL also reserves the right to schedule games on days other than your regularly scheduled league day/night if necessary. These policies are designed to make the league run as smoothly and safely as possible, and provide continuity for its participants. Each player in the league is responsible for this information: please advise your team of these rules and thanks for playing.
