By entering and participating in SportUP leagues you accept the following Waiver, Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement.
It is the captain’s responsibility to ensure:
1. Player Sign On
Players have entered their team details correctly on either game card or online SportFix system, including contact numbers, email, phone number and signatures.
Sign in players taking the court each and every game. Each player must have played and signed in for a minimum of 3 games to be able to play in Finals).
2. Team Fees
By registering a team in our competition you have committed yourselves to a 12 week season. The $200 deposit reserves your team a spot for the first week. This deposit and the full season fee are not refundable.
The team captain is responsible for paying the team fee and recover the costs from their team individually.
Individual payments are refundable if for any reason you do not enjoy your first game, up to 24hrs after your first game. You have to play in that first game to be eligible for the refund.
2a. Special Covid-19 Policy
Teams Scheduled in the Summer Season:
- Summer leagues and games are still “paused,” meaning we are planning to reschedule and run those games as soon as the government lockdowns and laws are removed.
- We are not able to provide refunds for our summer seasons, as these games will be rescheduled.
- If for some exceptional reason, we cannot reschedule your games – due to venue issues, etc – we will provide your team with a SportUP credit.
- If your team would like to withdraw from the remaining games, we will provide a SportUP credit to be used in a future season.
Teams Registered for the Autumn Season:
- Teams registered into the autumn season, have been delayed and will begin at the end of the Summer season.
- We are not able to provide refunds for our autumn leagues, as we are still able to deliver the season, albeit in a longer timeframe than originally anticipated due to COVID-19.
- If your team would like to withdraw from the upcoming season, we will provide a SportUP credit to be used in a future season.
Please Note: We, like everyone, are doing our best to ensure this crisis does not stop us from being able to deliver social sports for our members. We are going to return to sport…in time. Given the current climate, providing refunds for an ‘act of god’ event would severely affect our ability to remain operable. We are asking for your support and understanding. We can’t promise when we will be back…but we can promise we will be back, and it will be best season yet, as our special way of saying thank you.
3. Forfeits and Subs
If your team is short, we have a subs group so you can find a replacement player here.
If you can find sub replacements for your missing players then we do not charge any forfeit fee.
If your team does not show up or is unable to field a full team for 2 games in a season then we reserve the right to eject this team from the remainder of the season with no refund.
The forfeit fee is $89, this is applied when none of the team members can make the game.
Any outstanding monies such as forfeit fees will be invoiced to the captain and must be paid within 7 days before your next game. It is up to the captain to recover costs from team members.
Failure to comply with any of the above responsibilities means SportUP reserves the right to suspend the team from the competition until such time as all debt is removed.
In the event that any of these responsibilities are not followed actions will be taken for debt recovery.
Captains must ensure that each player on your team must have their own personal insurance that covers the sport that they are playing. Indoor sports is a dangerous activity and may cause serious injury or death. Any players that participate at SportUP do so at their own risk.
