ATTENDANCE

Team Coordinators will be required to record the attendance on the game sheets.

Team Coordinators are encouraged to address attendance issues through regular communication with team members. If the Team Captain identifies a need to add a player to their team, SWOT can do so from the waiting list if required, with balancing being taken into account.

TEAMS AND BALANCING

Teams are balanced based upon player self-ratings on the registration form and independent ratings conducted during the previous year’s season. Teams are established using a draw.

Players are allowed to have “One Matched Special” request. This information should be included in the registration for. The policy is as follows; Player A may request to play with ONE (1) other player (Player B). Player B can also request to play with ONE (1) other player but it must be Player A. If not, then it is not considered a Matched Special Request and will not be considered.

Please note that SWOT is unable to 100% guarantee matched special requests if team balancing is compromised.

REFEREES

We will have OSA refs for the indoor season. If a ref is a no-show each team will provide a substitute ref for each half. The decision of the referee is final. Everyone should respect the referee’s authority and accept their decisions without question. If you have any concerns about the referees, allow 24 hours to pass, then complete the Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down form and send to facilities@swotsoccer.net
