Forfeits

Forfeits should be avoided as far as possible by doing the following:

  1. in the U6 to U11 ages, by allowing extra players from the opposition to make up the numbers
  2. in all age categories, by allowing players from a lower grade or age group to play

If a forfeit is unavoidable, it should ideally be done more than 48 hours before the match time, and follow this procedure:

The forfeiting team is required to notify by email the following people when forfeiting a game

The following information is required

  • The team forfeiting (including team name – e.g. Robertson Gold)
  • The name of the team they are forfeiting
  • The date and time of the forfeited game
  • The venue of the game

Where notice of less than 24 hours is given, the forfeiting team is required to contact the opposition team by phone to confirm the forfeiture as well as emailing the forfeit as set out above.

The cut off times for forfeits in order for there to be no fines:

  • U6 – U11 Miniroos:

- Friday 7.00pm

  • U13 – All Age competition and Cups:

- Thursday 5.00pm for Saturday games
- Saturday 7.00pm for Sunday games
- 5.00pm the day before for a midweek match
