    Weather

    We’re always a rain or shine league. Unless the city closes the fields, we’ll wait as close to game time before cancelling anything.

    Statistics collection

    Our decades old history is what sets us apart from other leagues, so stats are very important to us. Please make sure to snap a picture of your scorecard after each game and email it to Barry Lauzon via barry.lauzon@sympatico.ca. This is the quickest way to get stats updated in a timely and correct fashion. I’ll have scorecards for managers at the field, or you can get them from referees. I’ll keep them amply supplied during the season.

    Roster Rules

    Each team must have their own unique roster. We do allow a player from a higher division to also play on a division below them. However, they are ineligible for awards. Quarterbacks from higher divisions cannot throw a forward pass in a lower division. We have and will bend the one drop down player rule when it benefits the league and doesn’t affect divisions negatively. Parity is paramount, especially when it applies to playoffs. We want every team to have a chance to win in the end.
