Team Representatives. Each team must declare a team representative. The team representative will be responsible for:
- the conduct of their team;
- registering their team by the applicable season's deadlines as set out on the North Shore Indoor Soccer League's (the "League") website;
- ensuring that all of their team's players have registered, after the team has been registered by the applicable season's deadlines as set out on the League's website; and
- ensuring that all fees/fines owed by the team or the team's players to the League are paid for.
NOTE: The team representative will be held accountable for their team’s conduct.
Player Eligibility. A player is considered eligible to play in the League with their applicable team(s) after completing their registration form, completing their waiver and paying the applicable fee(s) using the League’s online registration system. Only players registered with the League may participate. Each player is only permitted to play for the team(s) they have fully registered with and are considered by the League as eligible to play for. In the rare instance, during league play only (not play-offs), that a team is short players, a player within the same league (i.e., men's, women or coed) may play for another team at the same divisional level or higher (e.g., a non-competitive player could play for a competitive team, but competitive players cannot play for a non-competitive team). The NSISL reserves the right to withdraw this allowance at any time should it become subject to abuse. Any team representative found to be playing a player not registered to their team, outside of the pre-described circumstance, will face a penalty of a three game suspension or $50 fine.
Player eligibility is a legal liability and insurance coverage issue and is consequentially taken extremely seriously.
Unregistered Players. There is zero tolerance for playing unregistered players. The team representative will be held responsible for playing unregistered players and will face a penalty of a three game suspension.
Schedule Changes. The League is not responsible for any missed games as a result of schedule changes. Schedules are posted on the League’s website. Teams and individual players are strongly encouraged to check the website before each scheduled game as it is updated regularly.
Standings. Two points are awarded for a win. One point is awarded for a tie. No points are awarded for a loss. If two teams are tied in the standings when a playoff schedule is being determined or at the conclusion of a regular season, then the method of tiebreak will be:
- most wins;
- most goals for;
- largest goals against; and
- coin toss.
Forfeits. A forfeiture of a game or a no-show will result in a 1 to 0 win for the opponents. Teams that forfeit a game with less than forty-eight hours notice and without just cause will be made to pay a fine of $50. Any additional forfeitures by the same team without just cause, regardless of forty-eight hours notice, will also be subject to the $50 fine. Payment of a fine must be received by the League within two weeks of the forfeited game. Non-payment will preclude the Team Representative and team from registering with the league for future seasons. The penalty for non-compliance with this policy is possible expulsion from the League. No refunds will be issued.NOTE: The North Shore Indoor Soccer League is not responsible for teams that forfeit games, and will not (i) reschedule forfeited games, or (ii) provide financial compensation in lieu of the game to the team that was forfeited on.
Team Defaults. No refunds will be issued should a team default after the start of the season. Defaults significantly impact the league's ability to manage the schedule and ensure teams receive their guaranteed number of games.
Rescheduling of Games. The League will only consider a request to reschedule a game in extenuating circumstances and with at least two weeks advance notice prior to the game in question. Even if these conditions are met, the rescheduling of a game will be dependent upon the availability of the facility and the opponent.
