Substitute players will stand in the condition for players. They will play if the player cannot play that week or the team captain wants a substitute to play in a certain week. Substitute players may also be recruited mid-season 

Team Formation/Registration

All players must register via. the google form. If a player cannot register they must contact their team captain who should contact the administration. When a team captain completes their team and posts in Team Formation they must make sure there players are registered and have confirmed. Captains are asked to show this by adding Eg: @Player *Registered/Confirmed*, when a player has completed both. *Note: This is not required but highly recommended to help both captain and administration* 

Forfeits

If your opponent doesn't show up(isn't online) at your scheduled time to play and doesn't come online for another 30 minutes then you will negotiate with your opponent again. If they were busy or something then you can schedule another time. If your opponent doesn't show up 2 times in a week you will be awarded a forfeit win. 

Have a fun season 1!
