Mbci delay of games

Doors are now open at MBCI blue & red, sorry for the inconvenience.

Games may be delayed, please give the teams playing space until done.


Restarting

The League will restart January 30. 

We were unable to get more gym time to possibly extend the season. We must work with the 8 weeks we have left and with plan a tournament post season for those who want to play more.

Jan 30 - last game of RR1 (was your scheduled Jan 2 game).  We will need to shorten this round by one game, which will be credited accordingly.  Standings will be generated by the system and there will still be tier movement for RR2.

Feb 6 and on - RR2 

No playoffs - Prize $$ will be spread evenly within the tier

Things to note:

-If your team would like to cancel a game, we require a minimum of 6 days to cancel for no monetary penalty. Anything less will result in a $50 default fee that will be awarded to the other team.  In either scenario, this will result in a loss unless you reschedule before the round ends.

-Make sure your team passes Covid screening prior to playing. 

An electronic version can be found online: Screening Tool - Shared Health (sharedhealthmb.ca)


NO GAMES JANUARY 16

Games this weekend have been cancelled.

Reminder that there is no game the following week, January 23.

Hopefully we can start up again on January 30. We will reassess next week. If the trend is favourable for this date, we will release an updated schedule for play. 


NO GAMES JANUARY 2

Games are postponed to January 16

NEW COVID BYLAWS - quick reference

These are updated and highlighted in our Policy in the downloads section.

 

NEW COVID BYLAWS

· Players during the 2021-2022 season must be fully vaccinated. This is in exception to players with a government issued medical exemption.

· QR code, photo, and signed online waivers are required due on date online. Captain will collect and send to their convenor for scanning and confirm that all their players have signed their waivers on the site. Any new additions during the season require this as well and approval from the league. 

· A team passport will be created. The league and captain will have a copy for verification. 

· Any use of false information is subject to the player being banned from the league, team ejection from the season, and no refund. Rules are harsh as the League’s status could be in jeopardy. 

· WCVL Board to complete random audits in which the passports must be presented. 

· Still have your QR codes for when entering facilities. Requirements for each gym will be posted online once confirmed. You require a mask on unless you are warming up or playing on the court. The facility rules trump league rules in any given case. 

· For the safety of all, no spectators allowed. It is also in the policy for some venues.

· Do not arrive at the court any earlier than 20 min beforehand unless you are the first slot. The expectation is you come already dressed and ready to go and vacate the court as soon as you can once done. 

· The scoresheet has been updated to include a screening tool for captains to ask their teams before entering the facility. Both captains and the referee must sign that it was completed. Home team must submit both sides within 48hrs after the game. 

· In the event a player exhibits covid symptoms right before game, the team is allowed to start and complete the match with only 5 players. You must send a message at least 20min prior to match time. No ghost player rule, as the team is already playing with one less player. 

· In the event the majority of a team is considered close contact to an individual by MB health, the game can be defaulted with no default penalty if at notice is given. The team will not be permitted to play during isolation, automatic losses will be given with the opportunity to reschedule any affected games before the round ends. Subject to normal rescheduling protocol. 

· Because a lot of teams combined, the jersey rule is more relaxed this season. We just require the same colour shirt and a different number for each player. 

· Final Placement status from 2019-2020 will be considered for next season, due to the pandemic.
