Game Times:

   There is a 15 minute grace period for each game after that it will be considered a forfeit. 2 forfeits and your team can be dropped from the league. There is a forfeit fee in all our leagues. In soccer it is $20 NO MATTER how much notice you give after the full schedule has been posted.
