The staff are paid by the half hour so if players do not exit the gym until 9:31 pm, the League will pay them until 10 pm. For players playing the last game of the night, please be quick in exiting the gym/change rooms so as not to incur additional expense for the League.


Defaults
Teams must do their best to avoid defaulted games, as they cost the League money and waste players' time. All players are required to inform their team rep by Thursday afternoon whether they will be able to make it to that week's game or not. If team reps do not confirm with the collective, or if a team knows they will be short players, their game will be cancelled and both teams informed. Players are welcome to use the gym space for team practice or pick-up games.

TEAM RESPONSIBILITIES

Scorekeeping Duties
Teams are assigned specific games to scorekeep. Everyone on the team should take turns in sharing the responsibility. If everyone volunteers just once – you will have fulfilled your obligation. Scorekeeping works best in pairs. A collective member will always be present to help out if needed. Teams are assigned a maximum of 2 points for fulfilling their assigned scorekeeping duties (1 point for each scorekeeper who is a member of the team assigned).


Equipment Duties
Once every seven weeks, each team is responsible for taking home, storing, and bringing back the bag of basketballs for the following week's games. This responsibility should be shared among members of each team who have access to a car. It is best for the basketballs to be stored indoors in the cold weather to avoid deflation.
