Waitlist

Due to the high demand for spots in our leagues, Halifax PLAYS often has had a wait-list of players who were late in registering for the league. Should spots in our leagues ever open up, especially in case some teams face attendance issues, wait-listed players will be contacted to join a team full-time or as a sub.

Our Current Wait-list: None at this time.

In the interests of fairness to all teams and wait-listed players, Halifax PLAYS Flag Football has prepared some rules for getting off the wait-list. 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 chief organizer (CO), AND the wait-listed player.
- The CO 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 CO deems would make removing a player on a wait-list unfair for the parties involved, others in the league, or other people wait-listed.

3) On rare occasions, the CO 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 CO deems may require a player be added to a team.
