It is the responsibility of the Team Captains to obtain times and advise all team members of their respective game times each week. For your information game times and scheduled are also available on the web at www.isamackay.com.au
Finals: In the case of a tie in a finals game
Semi-Finals – for all sports: If the final score is tied than the team that has finished higher on the ladder at the end of the regular season will proceed through to the Grand Final.
Grand Finals- Cricket- If the final score is tied, it reverts back to skins won. If the number of skins won is tied then a mini-game is to be played.
The system for the finals is 1v4 and 2v3 with the winners from both teams going into the Grand Final on the Saturday night.
The game fees for all games that are played during the finals series must be paid in full.
To avoid getting behind in game fees we suggest the following:
#1. Several teams have already initiated a very successful system whereby they collect three game fees on the first night of the season. The first nights game fee is then paid and each player has the other two payments held in credit against nights that they may not be available. If not used during the season, the two payments simply carry over and get used on the last two nights of the season. Simple but very effective!!!!!!
#2. Other teams run an ‘extra tin’ and collect an extra $1 per person per night, as a form of ‘insurance’. This extra dollar then pays for any player that misses a night. Any money left in the kitty at the end of the season buys a drink or two for each of the team members. Again simple!
All teams must be in uniform by the start of the 4th game of the season.
Shirts may be different designs & makes, but they MUST be the same colour.
Shirts that are different colours or have different designs, printing or logos will be penalised. ( Logos / designs less than 5cm sq will be allowed). Any printing that is covered by a netball bib will be allowed.
In cooler weather, jumpers may be worn, but the team uniform MUST be worn underneath.
Skirts (pleated or non-pleated) and shorts or bike pants may be worn. Shorts must have an elastic waist. Under no circumstances are denim or cargo pants allowed on court
Special note: Players are not permitted to turn non-identical uniforms inside out to hide logos, patches or irregular colours etc. All players who have non-matching uniforms will be penalised according to the table below.
PENALTIES FOR PLAYERS OUT OF UNIFORM
Cricket- 5 runs per player (max.20) Beach Volleyball (6)- 2 points per player (max.6)
