Competition seasons

Competitions run year-round (some sports are seasonal):

  • Semester 1 — March to June.
  • Mid-Year — June to August.
  • Semester 2 — August to November.
  • Summer — November to February.
Prior to the game

All teams are required to sign in with the on-site casual sport administrator before their scheduled game each night.

During inclement weather, the competition administrative staff or official at the site can cancel games. We will make every reasonable effort to inform teams of cancellations, such as utilising e-mail or the website.

In some cases, we will call team captains, though due to the number of teams playing per night this is not always possible. It is a team captain's responsibility to let their team members know of the cancellations.

Do not assume the game will be cancelled. Outdoor competitions allow one extra week for wet-weather games if games are cancelled during the regular season. Other cancelled games will not be rescheduled and will result in a draw.
