Guidelines

  • All players should have the opportunity to play in each half.
  • A present WDCGBL Commissioner must be told prior to the game of any ill or injured players who are suited to play.
  • The team captain is the manager of the team.
  • Each team captain will represent all player concerns to the referees.
  • Only a team captain may address the referee.
  • The referees will have final say in the calling of penalties, awarding of points and final decisions for all games.
  • Any further disputes must be brought to the attention of the WDCGBL Commissioners to discuss and resolve.

Captains

  • Captains are responsible for reviewing the game score-sheet prior to the game and informing the referees of any roster changes at that time.
  • Captains may only play players on the current roster.
  • If it is discovered a captain has played someone not on the roster in a game, the team forfeits.

Playoffs

  • All teams make the playoffs. There are two weeks of playoffs - Quarterfinals in week one, with winners moving on to play in the Semifinals in week two. The two remaining teams will play for the Championship.
  • Teams are seeded based on their record from the season.
  • If teams have the same record, the commissioner will use a tiebreaker to determine seeds. The first tiebreaker used is head-to-head victories. If teams are even head-to-head, then point differential of each victory in the head to head games. If a tie still remains, then the commissioner will use a ceremonial coin-flip to decide.
  • All teams will be responsible for score keeping. Most of the time, the lowest seeded team and the losing team will have responsibility to keep score. Please check the schedule before leaving the gym to make sure your team covers your score keeping assignment.
