Roster Requirement Policy

When a Team Captain registers their team, they are only required to register themselves and invite one other player on their team; however, all teams need to have the minimum roster requirement confirmed on their roster prior to their first game. You will receive a loss for your first game and every game played until you meet the requirements. Teams must fill out their complete roster, prior to their first playoff game, otherwise, they will receive an automatic loss and will not be eligible for the championship.

Why Does the ESSC Require a Team’s Roster:

1. Waiver: All players must agree to the waiver and facility fines. Players ‘sign’ the waiver when they accept a roster invite.

2. Sportsmanship Follow-Up: If there are any sportsmanship concerns, the ESSC would have contact information for each player, should The Club ever need it.

3. Emergency: It helps in emergency instances (e.g. injuries, sportsmanship, schedule changes, etc.) and allows the ESSC to provide better service to players.

4. Subs: It allows all members of each team the ability to access the online subs list.

5. Prevent Ringers: It will help prevent teams from bringing in ringers for playoff games, as names of new players can be cross-referenced with complete rosters.

6. Championship T-Shirts: The amount of players on a roster will help determine how many league champ shirts will be ordered for winning teams.

7. Team Communication: In the near future, the ESSC will be adding more functionality for Team Captains to be able to communicate with their teammates through the website.

8. League Placement: It allows the ESSC to do more thorough divisional research at the start of the season; which leads to more evenly matched leagues.
