    • A team must pay the league re-entry fee at Rec & Ed within seven (7) days of its second forfeit. A reminder will be sent only as a courtesy measure to notify a team of its second forfeit.
    • If a team is not sure of its number of forfeits, it is the team manager's responsibility to contact the league statistician. The Team Sports Manager may waive the league re-entry fee as his or her discretion.  
    Score Sheets, Result Sheets and Standings
    The home team must keep the official score. The team listed first on the league schedule is designated as the home team.  The winning team is required to drop off the game result sheet at the Rec & Ed office, Southeast Park drop box or the Veterans Memorial Park drop box immediately after the game. However, in the event your game ends in a tie, the HOME TEAM is responsible for dropping off the result sheet. At the end of this one week time period, if the results are not turned in, the game in question will be recorded as a double forfeit. You may also take a picture of your result sheet and email it to Glenn at jonesg@a2schools.org.
