FORMAT:

5 bowlers on a team, we ask that at least 2 bowlers be female. This is a Co-Ed FUN league. Male/Female interaction and socialization is the goal! However we do understand it may be difficult for some teams to meet the Co-Ed requests for bowling…therefor we “highly suggest” at least 2 bowlers be female! If you want to play but cannot find the right Co-Ed’s please e-mail us.

Scratch scoring – highest team score wins!

ROSTER:
Minimum number of players per roster is 5 (minimum of 2 females). We suggest no more than 8 players per team in order to allow for everyone a turn to bowl/ All players must have signed the WLF SSC Roster/Waiver form. It is the responsibility of all team captains to ensure players are in compliance with this policy.

WAIVERS:
In order to participate in the league, each player must sign the team waiver. Waivers can be downloaded by clicking here. Captains need to print, have all players sign, and turn in the first night of play. Players not present the first week of play will still be required to sign a waiver with our staff before participating. A WLF SSC staff member will keep your team waiver at the field, or a new one can be printed out. Players who sign up as individuals, agree to the waiver electronically when they register.

PLAYER RESTRICTIONS:
A. All WLF SSC participants must be 21 years of age or older prior to their first scheduled game.
B. Players that have participated in Division 1 Collegiate or Professional sports must be a minimum of 2 years removed from participation to be eligible to play in a similar WLF SSC sport.
C. Players may only be on one roster for any given sport on a given night, regardless of if multiple divisions are offered.
D. WLF SSC reserves the right to request a photo ID from any player at any time for any reason.
E. Roster checks will be performed by a WLF SSC Gameday Coordinator at the request of the challenging team. Only individual players may be challenged. Entire teams may not be challenged. The challenging team must provide legitimate reasons for submitting a roster check request. Challenging teams must report their intention to initiate a roster check to a WLF SSC Official as soon as possible to ensure the preservation of playing time. Teams lose the ability to challenge a player’s eligibility after the fifth frame.

DYNASTY RULE:
Everyone loves a little competition, but one team dominating a league season after season can spoil the fun for everybody.

If a team retaining more than 3 players has won 3 championships in consecutive seasons for which they have been registered, the WLF SSC will have the option to, in its discretion, request that team to form 2 or more separate teams to promote parity in the league or withdraw their registration. That team will then have the opportunity to form 2 separate teams with each subsequent roster approved by the WLF SSC.

SPORTSMANSHIP:
We are all adults, and the WLF SSC expects all participants to act like it. Unsportsmanlike behavior may result in that player being ejected from the game. An ejection may result in further suspension from participation in current and / or future WLF SSC sports. 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.

OVERLY COMPETITIVE PLAYERS:
All WLF SSC sports are intended to be recreational. Any player who is deemed to be excessively competitive and/or overly aggressive may be removed from competition at the discretion of a WLF SSC staff member.

GAME UNIFORMS:
WLF SSC t-shirts are your team’s uniforms. All players must wear their current WLF SSC uniform (past season’s uniforms are not permitted) to participate and any player not wearing his/her uniform will be will be sidelined for that game. Missing or swapped uniform players’ names will be taken and if they are not on your roster, a loss will be assessed for that game.

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.

POINTS AWARDED:
Win – 2 points…Tie – 1 point….Loss – 0 points.

GAME EQUIPMENT:
All bowling equipment (bowling balls, bowling alley shoes) will be provided by the bowling alley itself. The cost of rentals for each of these items is included in your registration fees (you will not have to pay to rent shoes on game nights). If you already own your own bowling ball and / or bowling-legal shoes, you may bring them to the alley.

FORMAT:
Each team will bowl two separate games each night for 3 weeks.

FORFEITS:
If a team is short the minimum number of players by game time, the game will be considered a forfeit. The minimum number of players needed to play an official game is three, one of which must be a female.

GAME RESCHEDULING POLICY:
In the event of inclement weather or any other event that causes games to be postponed, WLF will make every attempt to reschedule all games. In the event of multiple cancellations, WLF reserves the option to shorten the regular season and/or the play-off schedule. Make-up games may be scheduled on days other than the regularly scheduled days of the week. Neither refunds nor pro-rated refunds will be given if the season is shortened due to inclement weather or due to actions taken by the venue.

BEGINNING OF GAME:
Depending on the venue, the names may already be in the computer when you arrive. The order does not matter as long as it is consistent for all frames of both games.

SCORING:
All five scores of the bowlers will be counted together to get one total score (no handicap). If a team is short one bowler, the missing bowler will be given a “vacant score” of 100. If short two bowlers, each will receive the same “vacant score” of 100.

SHOES / BOWLING BALLS:
All team members must pick up their shoes and pick out a ball BEFORE their scheduled start time in order to ensure every game is completed within one hour. Please notify the staff that you are with the WLF SSC Bowling league when requesting your shoes for the evening. You may bring your own equipment if you wish (may have to be lane approved).
