As the season progresses, rosters can fall victims to vacations, relocation and players who simply quit the league. Managers sometimes need substitute players to field a team. This page defines the policy and procedures for securing substitute players.

The objective of this policy is:

  • Be fair to all teams and players
  • Ensure one team does not gain an advantage through substitution/recruitment
  • Ensure teams complete their game schedules
  • Offer higher level of play to as many players as possible

 A Manager may acquire substitute players as follows:

The team Manager will contact the League Commissioners and request a substitute player
The Manager may request specific players, but the decision is the full discretion of the League Commissioners
