Waitlist

Halifax PLAYS sometimes maintains a waitlist for any players who register after spots are filled. During the course of a season, many teams inevitably have attendance issues, hence most waitlisted players are likely to be contacted at some point, either to join a team full-time or to fill in as a temporary sub.


Our Current Waitlist: There are no players waitlisted at this time.


In the interests of fairness to all teams and waitlisted players, Halifax PLAYS Ball Hockey has prepared some rules for getting off the waitlist. Please see an outline of our "Wait-list Policy" below:

 

1) In general, only the first male or female player wait-listed is eligible to join a team. This means that a player cannot "jump the wait-list," even if they already know players on the team they want to join.

 

2) A team captain can request to have a player added to their team from a wait-list, but must have permission from all captains of their team, the league COO, AND the wait-listed player.

- The COO has discretion in approving or disapproving requests to add a player to a team. Please note that he/ she is likely to deny such requests in the following circumstances:

(a) the team in question is already very strong and wants to add a highly skilled player

(b) the team already has many players, of a specific gender or in total, relative to others

(c) other circumstances arise which the COO deems would make removing a player on a waitlist unfair for the parties involved, others in the league, or other people waitlisted.

 

3) On rare occasions, the COO may compel a team to take on extra wait-listed players if:

(a) A team consistently has low attendance, as evidenced for instance by multiple forfeits or the frequent used of subs within a short period of time

(b) A team has players removed due to non-payment of league fees or for disciplinary reasons

(c) Other circumstances arise that the COO deems may require a player be added to a team.
