What is the payment policy?
Membership Fees, Team Fees and Free Agent Fees are due by the activity start date.
Week 1 Game – All team and membership fees must be paid by all players that participate in the game. If we determine that a player was present with an outstanding balance, the score will be changed to a FORFEIT LOSS*.
Week 2 Game – Any unpaid balance will be transferred back to the captain 24 hours prior to the Week 2 Game. The entire team fee and any outstanding membership fees must be paid PRIOR to the start of the Week 2 Game. A team with an outstanding balance will have their Week 1 and Week 2 games changed to FORFEIT LOSSES*.
Week 3 Game – Any team with an outstanding balance will not be permitted to play.
Week 4 Game – Last opportunity to add players to your roster. At this point, the team fee should already be paid in full, therefore the additional player/free agent will be required to pay the Captain their share of the Team Fee. ALL ROSTERS ARE FINAL AFTER THE 4TH WEEK OF THE SEASON.
*Any scores recorded as a FORFEIT LOSS due to unpaid fees will NOT be changed back to the original score once the balance is paid in full.
What is your refund policy?
NO refunds will be issued for any requests made on or after the original start date (no matter what the circumstances). There is a $25 processing fee for refunds requested prior to the league start date - If a team cancels within a week of the start date there will be a $50 processing fee. This policy also includes anyone injured and unable to play during or prior to the original start date. There will be a $15 fee for any returned checks. If we do issue you a refund, we will either mail you a check, which usually takes at least 8-10 business days, or we will credit the credit card used immediately (minus any processing fees). If an individual signs up and there are not enough players to create an individual team and we can not find a spot on an established team for an individual, then we will give the individual a full refund.
How do you notify league participants of postponement/rescheduling due to inclement weather?
If games are canceled, we will email the league as well as post on an announcement on the website, on Twitter and our Facebook page. Premier Co-ed Sports utilizes fields owned and operated by the City of Raleigh, St. David's School, Trinity Academy and Cary Academy, and must abide by their inclement weather policies. Typically, in cases of heavy rain the night before or during the day, a representative from the City or school will assess the field condition and inform us of their decision, which we relay to participants. We cannot control when they make their decision, but it's usually no later than 4pm on weekdays. For games at Knights of Columbus, we check the field ourselves around 4-4:30pm and make a decision based on the field condition and weather at that time. Weekend field checks are generally done between 10-11am, depending on the start time of games. We do not base our decisions on forecasts, radar projections, or what the weather is like at your home or work. While we try to make a decision early enough for everyone to avoid the inconvenience of driving to a field for a canceled game, there are times that the rain/storms won't hit us until after we've checked the fields, and either late-day or game-time cancellations happen. Please bear with us on those occasions and realize our main goal is to PLAY and we'd all be much more disappointed if we missed out on that by cancelling early only to have the rain miss us.
What is your inclement weather game make-up policy?
When possible, games will be added back on at the end of the season on the same day/night as normal. However, in cases when that is not possible, games may be made up on Saturdays toward the end of the season. We will make every effort to reschedule additional weeks of missed games but they are not guaranteed or refunded/credited. If the makeup date is canceled also, those games willare not guaranteed or refunded/credited.
What is your Sportsmanship Policy?
Good Sportsmanship is central to the success of Premier Co-ed Sports, therefore it is mandatory that every team read and understand the Sportsmanship Policy prior to the start of each season and agree to adhere to the requirements.
How are shirts ordered?
Shirts are ordered on the two Friday's before the regular season starts and then again at the end of week 1 and week 2. Any players signing up AFTER the week 2 order will not receive a league shirt and are responsible for providing their own that matches their team color (and have a number if the sport requires one). Shirts will be distributed to teams once they have been processed at the Premier Co-ed Sports office AND the teams entire balance has been paid.
What are the requirements for team eligibility?
Teams will not receive their shirts until their entire team balance has been paid. Teams that have not paid their entire team balance after week 1 are ineligible to play and games missed will not be rescheduled. All games missed will count as a forfeit in the standings.
What are the requirements for player eligibility?
Any player not having paid their membership fee PRIOR to entering a game will cause their team to forfeit the game in the standings. Each team captain will have a list of ineligible players emailed to them 48 hours prior to their week 1-4 games.
