Q: When does the final payment get charged?
A: Final payments are charged automatically to the same form of payment as your deposit and at the discounted rate, three weeks prior to the tournament. Those wishing to make their final payment manually can do so by contacting the league office before the deadline (two weeks prior to the tournament).
Q: How can I make sure that my team can use our preferred jersey color?
A: Jersey colors are requested at the time of registration. In the case of a jersey color conflicts within your team’s division, whoever requested the color first, usually by registering first, will be given preference.
Q: We have players who all even out to the given level. Is that OK?
A: Unfortunately not. Level is one of the founding values at StinkySocks Hockey so all players must qualify to play at the level that their team is entering.
Q: Do I need to roster a backup goalie?
A: It’s up to each team who they want to register. Even if you think that your primary goalie can make any and all games of the tournament we recommend having a backup registered due to any unpredictable circumstance. In the event that your goalie can’t play in a game, you will not be able to place your own goalie who is not rostered. The league will do everything possible to place a goalie who qualifies for the level you but that cannot be guaranteed.
Q: Where can I submit my roster?
A: Captains do not submit rosters. Approximately 2 weeks prior to the tournament and after your team is paid in full we’ll provide you with a unique link to forward to you players. Each player can the register at that link prior to the player registration deadline stated.
Q: When will I know the schedule?
A: We will provide the schedule approximately 2 weeks prior to the tournament. Even after that point it is possible that the schedule can change so players should be aware that games can take place at any time within the range given for each day.
Q: I have extra players. Where do I pay for those?
A: If your roster exceeds the player allowance when player registration closes we’ll reach out to ask you who should be removed or, in the case you’d like to keep everyone, we’ll permission to charge the card on file for those exceeding the limit.
Q: What if there’s a player on another team who doesn’t appear to qualify for the level?
A: We have a system of checks and balances to ensure equitable leveling. If at any point in the first two rounds of the tournament you team feels that a player on another team does not qualify for the level then you, as the captain of any team in the same division regardless of whether or not you’ve played or observed the other team, can issue a formal level challenge by alerting the onsite staff of your wish to due so. That starts the process and we’ll make a determination of eligibility based on our staff’s prior observations.
