STATEMENT

We take forfeits very seriously at DSL.  Registration is a commitment and we expect teams to play all of their scheduled games and be respectful of their opponents' commitment and expectations.  Failure to attend a scheduled game deprives other teams a portion of their season causing great disappointment & frustration involving travel time and the disruption of personal schedules.  Please be respectful members of the DSL community and be courteous to your fellow league members!

Captains are responsible for confirming team attendance each week in advance so that proper notice can be given if a forfeit is absolutely unavoidable.  Each forfeit will be handled on a case-by-case basis & DSL has the right to exercise the penalties as necessary.
