Comeback League Policies
SPORTSMANSHIP / PLAYER CONDUCT
The goal at Comeback Sports is for all of our participants to have FUN while enjoying a safe and organized league experience. We hope that all of our participants keep that in mind when they join our league and that they are ultimately here to have fun. While the games may become intense at times, you can still be competitive while maintaining good sportsmanship. Any behavior deemed unacceptable by staff may result in suspension and/or ejection from a game or the league. Abuse of staff/referees will not be tolerated in way. Regardless of if you agree with the calls made on the field you must be respectful when you conduct yourself in any league game.
Comeback Sports reserves the right to remove a player from a game or a league for poor sportsmanship. Additionally, any kind of physical altercations will not be tolerated. Fighting or any kind of violent conduct will result in immediate ejection from the league and carries a minimum 1 year suspension from all league play. All cases will be assessed by league administration.
Additionally, foul or abusive language will also not be tolerated. Yes we are all adults, but please remember that many players have their kids/families attending games.
If someone on your team or on another team is not practicing good sportsmanship, please let us know. Email [email protected] .
For Softball / Kickball games played on dirt ballfields, cancellations are posted online by 3pm on game day. You may also call our office phone at: 253-326-5168. We will make every attempt to reschedule your game and your team will still receive the full league schedule. If a reschedule is not possible during the season your team will receive a pro-rated credit for that missed game towards a future season.
League schedules are updated online 1 week prior to the start of your league. Only the first week of your schedule will be posted initially. After week 1 of play the full schedule will be released online. League schedules are subject to minor changes so please check your schedule each week to confirm your game time. No changes will be made to your league schedule less than 7 days before that scheduled game without prior notification and confirmation. *We reserve the right to change schedules more than 7 days in advance without notification. Please double check your schedules each week.
If your team has scheduling requests PLEASE send these in prior to the start of the season or as far in advance as possible. We will make every effort to accommodate your team. A reschedule request made less than 7 days prior to your scheduled game must be agreed upon by the opposing team in order to make a change. If the opposing team cannot agree upon a reschedule date then the game will remain as scheduled.
It is the team captain’s responsibility to notify Comeback Sports office, either by phone or email, at least 24 hours in advance or by 3pm on Friday for weekend games, in the event that their team must forfeit. Comeback Sports will notify the opposing team captain immediately. Every attempt will be made to find a team to play in place of the forfeited team. If a team is found then a game will be played but only as a ‘friendly’ game and the non-forfeiting team will receive a win. Please note that our office hours are Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm. Forfeitures hurt the league immensely so please make every effort to field a team. Even if your team has less than the required number of players, Comeback referees will ALWAYS run a game. In the event that a team has less than the required number of players, the game will be recorded as an official forfeit win but a scrimmage game will be run. Our officials will make every effort to run a game for your team!
Number of players required to avoid a forfeit
- Coed 11v11 Soccer – 7 (at least 1 female)
- Men’s 11v11 Soccer – 7
- Coed 8v8 Soccer – 5 (at least 1 female)
- Men’s Flag Football – 5
- Dodgeball – 4 (at least 1 female)
- Coed Softball - 7 (at least 2 female)
- Coed Kickball – 7 (at least 2 female)
Any team that forfeits a game will lose the game and also have 1 point deducted from their overall standings for that game. In addition the following penalties apply:
1st Offense- *$50 fine & League Warning
2nd Offense- *$50 fine & Team is excluded from league playoffs
3rd Offense- Removal from league. No refund on league fees will be rendered.
*Forfeits with proper notification will not be assessed the forfeit fine. Unnotified forfeits (less than 24 hours notice/after 3pm on Friday) are far worse for the league and all penalties will be applied to the team captain. However, if your team makes an attempt to field a team but falls slightly short of the required number of players then the forfeit fine may not be applied. Any such cases will be reviewed by league management. We appreciate all of our captains efforts in trying to field a team.
The team captain must submit a full team roster prior to your first league game. Your roster must include player names, emails, and shirt sizes (if applicable). All team rosters must be uploaded to your Comeback Sports captain’s account. You may make changes to your team roster up until week 4 of play. If a roster is not submitted your team may not be allowed to participate in an event, or the game will be recorded as a forfeit ‘loss’ until a roster is submitted properly. Most sports have roster limits and or roster minimums, please check with that specific sport to identify this. ONLY players listed on your team roster may participate in playoffs.
EVERY player must sign our waiver in order to be able to participate in any league game.
Players must be listed on your team roster in order to participate in any Comeback Sports league game. However, we do allow teams to bring out substitute players for single games (not allowed during playoffs or tournament play). We understand that there are times when prior commitments do not allow roster players to be present. *Substitute players may not be active players for another team within the same league/division. In the event that a team brings in substitute players, Comeback Sports must be notified 24 hours before the start of the game who the player is that is subbing in and who they are replacing (email: [email protected]). A formal protest may be filed to the referee before a game if an opposing player’s eligibility is in question. Protests made during or after a game will not be considered.
The referee take down the player’s name which will be referenced with rosters on file. The game will then be played in its entirety as scheduled. Teams will be notified of all rulings on the identified eligibility discrepancy before the next week’s games – decisions will not be made on site. If the protest is proven to be legitimate, it will result in the forfeiture of the game in question. All rulings by Comeback Sports staff are considered final.
Playing on two teams?
Players may not play for more than 1 team within the same league or skill division. However, they may play for two separate teams as long as they are in different divisions.
Teams may NOT pick up players from other teams within their league. If your team has less than the required number of players and you decide to pick-up players from another team within the league then this game will be played but will be recorded as an official ‘forfeit’ loss.
All scoring and game decisions made by referees at the field are final and cannot be overturned. The only time a game decision may be overturned is if an official protest was filed with the referee prior to the game regarding player eligibility and the team was found to be in violation of our policy.
Drinking alcohol at Comeback Sports League game or event is strictly PROHIBITED. If any team is caught drinking alcohol during their game on park property, the referee has the right to forfeit the game to the other team.
Smoking is prohibited at all facilities that we host Comeback Sports leagues or events. This includes but is not limited to: Parks, School Fields and Gyms.
League registration is done on a ‘first come first served’ basis. We appreciate your participation in our events so to ensure your team’s spot in the upcoming league your entire team must be registered before the league is full.
Comeback Payment Policy
How Team Payment Works:
The individual to sign their team up for a Comeback sports league will be noted as the Team Captain. The team captain is responsible for timely payment of his/her league fee as well as team attendance to league games.
In order to reserve your teams spot in a Comeback league, a minimum $50 deposit must be made. The remainder of your team fee is by the end of the day of your first league game.
Easy Ways to Submit Team Payment
- Pay your balance online in your captain’s account
- Pay over the phone
- Send a check into our office for your remaining team fee. Checks must received prior to your first league game.
- If you chose to split up your team fee amongst your players during registration, then each team player will be able to pay their portion of the team fee individually online. Just make sure to remind them to do so before their first game, otherwise these fees will reassign to the team captain after week 1 of play.
*Please note: Any unpaid team balance remaining after the payment deadline will be automatically charged to the Team Captain’s card on file (the card used to place the team deposit). If this charge declines then your team may be removed from the full season’s schedule.
*Cash is no longer an accepted form of league payment*
As a team Captain, you are ultimately responsible for your team’s attendance to games and the timely payment of your team’s League Fee. If your team fee is not paid by the league deadline, the captain will automatically be charged any remaining balance. If your team violates our forfeit policy then it will be the captain’s card that is charged for this fine. Although we understand it may not be to any fault of your own, it is the responsibility of the captain and in his/her best interest to keep the team running smoothly. If you don’t think you can count on your teammates to pay their part or simply show up, you may want to consider signing up as an Individual.
Team Payments that are made past your 2nd scheduled league game are assessed a $50 Late Charge. If full team payment is not received prior to your 2rd scheduled league game your team will be put into “Do Not Play Status”.
In the event that your team violates our forfeit policy. The team captain will be charged a $50 forfeit fee.
There is a $30 fee for any bounced checks. If your check bounces, Comeback will allow a 1-week grace period for you to finalize payment. If payment is not finalized within 1 week then Comeback will be forced to forego your spot in our league. (All NSF and returned check fees charged by the bank must be made payable to Comeback Sports following this Week Period)
Team Cancellations and Refunds Before The Season
A team that has confirmed their spot in our league may cancel their participation for a full refund as long as they notify the Comeback Team at least 7 business days prior to the start of their league. If a team cancels less than 7 business days prior to the start their league, the Captain will forego the $50 deposit and a $50 administrative cancellation fee will be applied. If a team fails to attend the first game of the season without giving prior notice this is viewed as a cancellation and that team will forfeit their deposit and be subject to a $100 cancellation fee. Full Refund: Less (5%) credit card processing fee.
Team Cancellations During The Season
Any team that plays a league game will be responsible for the balance of the league fee. No refund will be given. Team cancellations hurt the league and the other teams in it immensely. We will work with your team to apply your team registration to a future league, but cancellation will not render a refund.
Free Agent Sign Up:
In order to reserve a spot in a Comeback league, Individual sign-ups must pay for their league fee registration during . We take care of forming your team and will provide you with your teammates contact information no later than 1 week prior to the league start date. If for some reason we are unable to place you on a team then we will issue your full league refund. Every effort will be made to place you on a team in your desired league and skill division.
Free Agent Cancellations and Refunds Before the Season
Individual Sign-ups may cancel their participation in a Comeback sports league for a Refund MINUS $5 PROCESSING FEE if this is done more than 7 business days prior to the start of their league. If the individual cancels their participation less than 7 business days prior to the start of their league then they are subject to a $15 cancellation fee. (This the cost of offsetting refund and transaction costs associated with processing the refund). No refunds will be given to Free Agents after the start of the season. If for some reason you do not like the team that you have been placed on we will either try to move you to another team or we can apply your registration to a future league.
