Player Waivers – Each player must have a signed waiver on file at the facility in order to participate in any league game. Parent/Guardians can sign a waiver, complete the team roster, or fill out the waiver online. Allowing a player to play in a game will assume a parent/guardians full consent with the waiver stipulations.
Team Rosters – Coaches/Managers are required to submit a written roster for their teams. Rosters must be complete and contain team identification (name, age group, etc…) and individual player information including parent/guardian signature. If a coach/manager wants to update a roster during the session, they can request the roster at the front desk. Rosters will not be frozen during the session, but must be accurate and up to date. Any player playing in a game for your team must be on the roster. If a protest is made by another coach, and it is discovered that a player played in the game but was not on the roster, the team is subject to the forfeit rule.
Players are not allowed to double roster for teams playing in the same age league/division.
Players are not allowed to play at a level below their age.
Any team wishing to protest a roster must do so with the referee prior to the start of the game in question. The referee will document the protest and turn it over to Star Hill management.
Game Cancellations / Reschedule Requests
While we understand circumstances do arise during a session that makes it difficult for a team to play a game, cancellations and/or requests for reschedules are difficult depending on the session and the availability of game times.
Teams cancelling games or requesting that a game be rescheduled after the session schedules have been published will be subject to the following:
It is strongly recommended that no request for a reschedule is made based on the availability of a coach, or a single/few players. Teams must make accommodations for these absences.
If Star Hill is forced to cancel games due to inclement weather, power outages, etc… we will offer a reschedule day/time. If an agreeable day/time cannot be secured, the game will be recorded as a 0-0 tie.
Any team or individual who violates Star Hill’s policies, procedures, or facility rules will be subject to removal from any program, league, or event until such time where the individual or team is again in good standing.
Teams that fail to meet financial obligations, or meet behavioral standards as dictated by the facility policies and procedures and rules will be forced to forfeit games. Forfeits will be recorded as an 28-0 win for the opposing team.
Teams, players, coaches, parents, or spectators who display aggression, are involved in fights, blatant fouls, or repetitive unsportsmanlike behavior are subject to forced forfeiture. If a referee feels a game cannot continue, based on unsafe conditions, he/she can stop the game and award a forfeit to the opposing team. If a coach removes his/her team from the field, without the agreement of the referee, their team will forfeit the game. Forfeit decisions by the referee are at his/her sole discretion. No refunds will be given for a forfeited game to either team.
Full refunds will be given for any league or program that does not have enough participants to occur, and which results in the cancellation of the league or program. We will attempt to process all refunds within 2 weeks of the cancellation date.
Refunds will not be given to any team or individual who withdraws from a league or program after the posted registration deadline. Teams will not be given a refund for games that are cancelled or forfeited.
We successfully work with hundreds of scheduling requests each session. The ones that are tough to accommodate are those who take teams out of their “typical” schedule patterns. We will review these situations with the requesting coach or manager.
Requests for Byes can be tricky. If we have 8 weekends to play 8 games, a request for a Bye automatically creates a situation where a team will have two games in a weekend, or a mid-week game. We ask that all requests for Byes be made prior to the schedule request deadline. Teams requesting a Bye after the schedule has been posted will forfeit the game(s) in question.
It is difficult to grant Bye requests for school breaks (winter break or spring break). These requests must be kept to a minimum and in cases of school breaks, cannot include both surrounding weekends.
Uniforms / Equipment
All teams should have matching, coordinated shirts. We encourage all shirts to have numbers, but numbers are not required.
Turf, indoor flats, and regular sneakers are all acceptable forms of footwear. CLEATS ARE NOT PERMITTED in any youth or adult league at Star Hill. Referees will not allow a player to play who is wearing cleats. If a player is found wearing cleats, they will be asked to leave the game and cannot return (cannot change into acceptable shoes and keep playing).
