 CMSS’ RULES AND FAIR PLAY

Fair Play

Any grade below a 5 will need to be accompanied with a valid explanation. New: Fair Play monitors will attribute a Fair Play rating of 0-5 based on the overall attitude of the teams. If you think you deserved a higher Fair Play rating than the other team awarded you, you have a right to choose the Fair Play monitor's rating (without knowing whether it is higher or lower). Once you decide to contest the rating, you cannot revert to the previous grade.

Teams have one week to contest their Fair Play rating in writing within one (1) week. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Sports and fair play

As a player it will happen that you get fouled.  It's YOUR responsibility to call a foul when it's against youOnly the player involved can call a foul.

It's not the monitors’ responsibility to call fouls.  He's not a referee.
 When a foul happens, there is a change in possession (whatever your league doesn't allow; it might be: high sticking, sliding, slap shot, pushing, etc.).  If you are not involved, it is against CMSS policy to get involved. Please keep this in mind.

If a foul is called against you, it is your responsibility to RESPECT the foul even if you don't agree with it.  Fair play points can be used against a team who repeatedly calls fouls or a team who doesn't respect calls made against them.

Contact will happen, how you deal with it is your choice.  A gesture will only bother you if you let it.  Call a foul, use the change of possession to your advantage and don't let it affect your whole game.

Our fair play monitors are at games to ensure that people play with the right attitude. No swearing, pushing, showing or any aggressive words or gestures are to be tolerated toward players of your own team, your opponents or our CMSS staff. 

If this happens, you can call on the fair play monitor for assistance and he can give a yellow card if he thinks it is warranted.  It is his decision and no one else’s. Please keep this in mind and play with a smile.

Fair Play monitors are sometimes called to monitor more than 1 game simultaneously.

 If someone on your squad is acting inappropriately, please take it upon yourself to intervene.  It is your responsibility to make sure your team-mates are aware of CMSS rules and abide by them.  Ask your players to sit out if you see they're getting out of hand or they are playing with a level of intensity that is out of the score of our league.

 Aggressive behavior or play

The leagues in which you will play might be refereed or self-refereed but in either case, every player part of the team will be held responsible for their team-mates' conduct. If someone on your squad is behaving inappropriately, it is YOUR responsibility to keep him or her from doing so. In addition, CMSS reserves the right to immediately eject a team or player from the league without refund for aggressive play. Respect your opponents and fair play: keep in mind our leagues are all NON-CONTACT. 


Dress

As a general rule, the home team wears black and the away team white. Please avoid grey as it could be confusing. If you are not sure which you should wear, bring both a dark and light colored shirt to all games, and your captain or the fair play monitor will let you know which color to wear. If teams have uniforms (no dark or light jerseys allowed), this may not be necessary. Also, prior to play, players should remove all watches, bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings, etc, avoiding breaks and/or injuries.


Respect
Respect the schools and gyms: put things back where you found them, take all of your items with you and put trash in provided receptacles. Please be out by the hour specified on your schedule. If you abuse this, game times will be made earlier and the league could lose its permits leaving you with NO GAMES and NO REFUND. Enter and exit ONLY by the specified areas. Do not wander the schools in areas other than the gyms. Showers are not provided.

Playoffs

The CMSS does its best to get as many teams playing in the playoffs as possible, however it is possible that NOT ALL teams will have a game during the final week of play, especially if there are an uneven number of teams in the league. During the regular season, team captains can use ANYONE as a player for their team (as long as they have filled out and submitted this present CMSS waiver form). However, to play on playoff nights players must have attended a minimum of three (3) regular season games for that team. Please respect this rule. The only exception to this rule is if teams do not have enough players and will default their game. They are allowed to have the minimum number of subs in this case. Ringers are not welcome at playoff night.

Standings

Wins are worth two (2) points, ties are worth one (1) and losses are worth 0. If a team defaults, they will lose one point. Standings are posted on the web site.  Fair Play points count toward the standings.  Please see top right of standings page to know more about Fair Play points and what your team can do to increase them. Club Montreal reserves the right to change teams' levels at our discretion.


Equipment

In some cases there is a refundable deposit of $75 for equipment loaned by the CMSS which is refunded upon return of the equipment.


Waiver

For a team or individual registration to be valid, ALL players on the roster MUST agree to the terms of the online waiver - NO EXCEPTIONS. This waiver is valid for all activities with CMSS; make sure you give it an attentive reading since you will have to agree with it in order to participate in CMSS’ activities.
