Playing as a Temporary Sub

Even if you are not on a team, you may wish to play as a "temporary sub." This means that you are not on a team's official roster, but play with the team for one day if a team is short. Officially, Halifax PLAYS discourages the use of "temporary subs." However, it also recognizes that in some circumstances, subs are one of few options available to teams in order to avoid forfeits.
Please contact if you to be contacted when a team needs a sub.

To ensure subs are used fairly, here is the "Temporary Sub Policy" for Halifax PLAYS Dodgeball:

1) For a sub to play in a game, permission from a league executive and captains of both teams involved in the game are required. This permission should be requested as early as possible.
- A league executive may deny a request for a team to use a sub in the following circumstances:
a) The team that would get the sub already has enough players.
b) Other teams playing at the same time have lower attendance and could use the sub more.
c) The sub is highly skilled and wants to join a team that is already very good.
d) A particular game is very important in the context of the season (e.g. during the playoffs)
e) Other circumstances arise in which the league executive deems a sub joining a team would be unfair for at least one of the parties involved in or affected by a game.
2) Temporary subs who are not full-time league players must pay $5 exact to a league executive. Subs who are full-time players can play for other teams for free, provided they paid their registration fees.
- If paying a fee to play as a temporary sub, please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of play and have your sub fee on hand; otherwise, you might not be allowed to play.
- Pre-payment via Paypal can also be arranged by e-mailing 
& then clicking the "Paypal" button that is linked at the bottom if this page
4) Any team that uses a temporary sub that has either not paid his/ her fees, or gotten all the necessary permissions from captains & league executives, will automatically forfeit their game.

NOTE: The temporary sub policy outlined above may be revised through the course of the season.
