District 9 Rescheduling Form

League Game Rescheduling

Beginning November 15th, league rescheduling will be via the Policy and Procedures for District 9:


All league games will be played as per original schedule submitted to the District 9 Statistician.

·         Games may be rescheduled prior to November 15th, in which league games may be played at no charge by filling out the District 9 Game Rescheduling Form, included below.

·         Any game changes after November 15th, MUST be rescheduled using the District 9 Game Rescheduling Form and paying the required fee.

·         Games can be rescheduled, with no fee, due inclement weather or severe team illness.

·         District 9 League Coordinator’s and/ or Director's decision will be final. Rescheduling a league game will be $50, paid by the team that wants to reschedule.


RESCHEDULING GAMES. Games may be rescheduled prior to November 15th in which league games may be played at no charge by filling out the District 9 Game Rescheduling Form, included below. Any game changes after November 15th, MUST be rescheduled using the District 9 Game Rescheduling Form and paying the required fee. The Game Rescheduling Form is to be completed by the team requesting the change and returned to the District Director, along with a check payable to District 9 Hockey in the amount of $50.00. The rescheduled game must be mutually agreed upon by both teams. 


*NOTE – if the rescheduled game date is prior to the original game date, the Game Rescheduling Form MUST BE RECEIVED 7 DAYS BEFORE THE RESCHEDULED DATE or there will be an additional fee of $25 fee. If the rescheduled game date is after the original game date, the Game Rescheduling Form MUST BE RECEIVED 7 DAYS BEFORE THE ORIGINAL GAME DATE or there will be an additional $25 fee.


If rescheduling a league game cannot be mutually agreed upon by both teams, the team requesting the change MUST play the originally scheduled game or forfeit the game. In good faith, both teams should do their best to reschedule if the request arises, though the requesting team is responsible for any related fees.


CANCELLING GAMES. Any team that commits a same-day cancellation or “no show” to a game will be fined $300.00 per cancelled game. The fine will be paid to District 9 within 7 days of the date of the cancelled game. District 9 will direct $200.00 of the cancellation fee to the other team/association involved in the cancelled game. The remaining $100.00 will be retained by District 9 as a fine for the cancelled game. In the case of a double forfeit, both teams/associations involved will be fined $100.00. A team that cancels a game or is a “no show” for a league game also becomes ineligible for District playoffs. Exceptions to this would be inclement weather or severe team illness. 


* NOTE – No “fair play points” will be awarded to either team for cancelled games as no game was played. A fair play point may be awarded to a team if the other team forfeits a game, per the District Director’s approval.
