CSSC Policies

Charlottetown Sport and Social Club’s (CSSC) goal is to:
  • promote good sportsmanship;
  • to create a positive and welcoming environment for all participants; and
  • most importantly, to have fun!

Team captains are responsible for knowing the rules and policies of Charlottetown Sport & Social Club and ensuring that their teammates follow them. CSSC is an adult recreation sports league and requires that all participants be 19 years of age or older.

Rules Enforcement:

All games are self-officiated. All team captains are expected to work together to ensure games are fair and players take responsibility for making calls throughout the game. Captains can make adjustments before a game begins in regards to rules, players, game length, etc. as long as they both agree before the game begins. Any disputes should be resolved between the two team captains.

CSSC does not tolerate physical or unsportsmanlike play and reserves the right to remove players or teams from the league without refund.

Length of Games:

Teams are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes before game time, allowing games to start on time. Games are 55 minutes, switching at the half time mark. If a team is unable to start their game within 10 minutes after the official start time, the win will go to the other team. If a team defaults, they can still play the game; however the other team will take the win.

Team/# of Players:

Teams must have a minimum of two females and two males on during game play. This can be waived at the start of a game if agreed upon by the opposing team.

If a team does not have the appropriate number of players and a player from the opposing team emails the league, and it is confirmed by the CSSC rep who was overseeing the game, the team missing players will forfeit that game. This has to occur within 24 hours of the end of the game to be valid.

Waivers/Eligible Players:

All CSSC players are required to sign a waiver before playing (there may be a new waiver required for each season). Teams can call up players throughout the season as long as they sign a waiver. During playoffs, teams are only permitted to call up players who have played a minimum of two regular season games with the team.

Scores/Standings:

Team captains are responsible for signing off on the scores for each game. After your game, please see the CSSC representative on site and sign off on the score they have written down to confirm you agree. Scores will be uploaded to the website as soon as possible.

First aid:

First aid is the responsibility of the team captain. Ice packs, band aids, tensors and athletic tape are all things which can be used in the event of minor scrapes and bruises.

If a CSSC representative is on hand when there is an injury, we will be happy to assist in any way we can. The CSSC representative is not responsible for administering first aid. There may be a first-aid kit on-site at some venues, but please be prepared for all situations. CSSC is not responsible for the cost of emergency care. It is at the sole discretion of the injured player and/or teams whether to call an ambulance.

Foul Weather Policy:

CSSC winter games are played indoors. Each venue has their own policy regarding winter weather and cancellations. As all of our games commence during the evening, we will post on our website as soon as we are made aware of any cancellations. Generally, any school gym will follow the Eastern School Board cancellations. If a game is cancelled, we will generally extend the season by a week in order to keep a consistent evening that players generally book off.

CSSC summer games are played rain or shine. In the event of severe weather games should immediately be stopped and players should take cover away from open spaces. If the weather does not stop take the score at that time, and it will count as the final score.

*If a game is re-played, the game will start with the score that was totaled at the time when the game was called. As well, the game length will be the amount of time that was remaining in the original game.

Unfortunately, CSSC is not able to control weather conditions! In the event of a missed game due to weather, we will do our best to reschedule games. Generally we will extend the season by a week to book the games, but there may be situations where we are unable to obtain space.

Double-Booking:

Unfortunately, on occasion a venue we rent may double book an evening, and may decide to bump CSSC from their scheduled night. In the event that this happens, we will notify all team captains by email, and will do everything possible to reschedule the game, though there may be situations where we are unable to obtain space. Generally, we will extend the season by a week in order to keep a consistent evening that players generally book off.
