11 - How many players are on each team?
Go to the respective Sports section on the website and the League Info section will include the minimum # of players per team for the respective sport.
12 - Why is there a minimum # of players on a sports team?
We require these minimums mainly due to the fact that from week-to-week there are always a couple players on vacation or out of town, and we want to make sure there are always enough players each week to play a game and avoid forfeits. Forfeits are no fun and ruin the experience for everyone so this has been a great way to avoid that.
13 - How can I register a Corporate team and have my company pay for it?
A company can pay for a Corporate team one of two ways:
1) The Team Captain registers, creates the team and pays the entire team fee by credit card, which will cover up to the minimum number of players for that sport. If the team roster will exceed the minimum number, the captain should contact Fusion by email for further instruction.
2) The Team Captain registers, creates the team and selects a check FOP. Checks should be made payable to "Fusion Sports Leagues, LLC" for the entire team cost (Individual player fee x # of players) and Fusion will create a 100% Discount Code for the team players to register. For this option, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request this process.
14 - What is the rain out policy and how will I know if games are canceled?
Game status updates will be posted on the Fusion Sport & Social website. Updates may also be posted on our Facebook page and Twitter feed, but are secondary to the website update. During the week if games are canceled prior to 4:00 captains and team members will be notified via email. If a decision to cancel is required during play our staff will attempt to contact the remaining teams scheduled after that point. Players should also pay close attention to our social media outlets for updates as well.
Game status decisions are made as soon as possible based on field conditions and safety concerns. Many times conditions will deteriorate rapidly with field conditions changing from ideal to unplayable in minutes.
15 - Games were canceled last week. When do I play?
Unless otherwise notified, follow the schedule as posted for the current week. Make up games are typically scheduled towards the end of the regular season unless a more appropriate time during the season is available. Captains will be notified by email regarding schedule updates and changes. Fusion reserves the right to provide a 6 game regular season due to excessive rainouts Fusion reserves the right to schedule make-ups and playoffs on days/night other than your regular scheduled day/night.
16 - What should be done if my team will have to forfeit?
The team captain or a designated team representative should contact the Fusion team (contact by email preferred - email@example.com) as soon as possible regarding forfeits so that opponents and officials can be notified. The opposing team will receive a win and points that count towards league standings. **Teams with a forfeit will automatically drop to the bottom of any tie breakers** Failure to provide the Fusion office with prior notification of 2 or more forfeits may result in removal from league play or playoffs.
