FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I nominate my own team?
Yes, you can enter your own team by submitting the online “Team Nomination Form” which can be found here.
Can I join as an individual player?
Individual players that don’t have a team of their own can contact our office via email and our Competition Administrator will try and find you a team to participate in. As we are "Competition Administrators" we rely on the public to create and enter teams into our competition so that means you may be able to create teams for your children to participate in. We can list individual players that are looking to join a team but this scenario does not guarantee participation as we’re then reliant on an established teams to contact us asking if we have any players listed, we cannot guarantee this is going to happen so it is much safer to create your own team which will guarantee participation.
Am I covered by player injury insurance?
Yes you are covered by insurance once you are registered online and made “Active” in our database which means you also must be financial. Anyone that has not paid online will not be covered by insurance until the payment is made.
