WAIVERS:

In order to participate in the league, each player must sign the team waiver.

PLAYER RESTRICTIONS:

All WAKA Dodgeball must be at least 21 years old before the season starts.

WAKA Dodgeball will have the right to request ID from any player.  SPORTSMANSHIP:

We are all adults, and WAKA Dodgeball expects all participants to act like it.

Unsportsmanlike behavior may result in that player being ejected from the game

and match by the court official. An ejection may result in further suspension from

participation in the current league and possible banning from other WAKA

leagues. An ejected player(s) is required to leave the premises immediately –

refusal to leave the premises may result in a team forfeit and / or increased

length of suspension.

GAME UNIFORMS:

WAKA Dodgeball Shirts are your team’s uniforms. All players must wear a WAKA

Dodgeball shirt with your team’s current color to participate.

UNIFORM ALTERATIONS:

Names on uniforms, numbers, cut-off sleeves, corporate logos, etc, are

permitted, as long as they do not cover any logos originally printed on the shirts.

FORFEITS:

If a team does not have the minimum number of players by game time, the team

will be allowed a 5 minute grace period. If the minimum number of players does

not show up 5 minutes after game time, a forfeit will be called.

FORFEIT FINES:

If a team does not have the minimum number of players by game time, a $20

forfeit fine will be assessed unless the team has enough players to play an

officiated exhibition match. If a team e-mails WAKA Dodgeball by 4pm of the

preceding day, no fine will be assessed. This will allow the opposing coach to

inform his/her team of the impending forfeit. All fines must be paid before your

next scheduled game. Teams not paying the above fines the following week may

play that game, however it is officially ruled a forfeit. After the 2nd week the team

can be removed from the league.
