Rules Variations

  1. League format: Match Play (8-week season) with drop 2 allocated one per qualifying weeks 1-4 and one per divisional weeks 5-8.
  2. The Roll Call Grouping system will be used where Roll Call will be taken at 7:30pm.  Players who are not present and have not contacted the league SLO to announce their expected tardiness will be considered absent and excluded from that evening’s play.  If you are running late – contact the SLO BEFORE 7:30pm! Once league starts, there will be no way to add late players that did not contact the SLO ahead of time.
  3. The forfeit limit for the season will be 13 – This affords the ability to miss up to basically 3 weeks of play — on the 13th forfeit you will be dropped from the season.

Dues / Prizes / Expenses / Whatnot

The Carpool league collects dues of $30 per player for each 8-week league season. We no longer collect “kitty” money, which comes from any free credits on machines (due to replay, match, etc) during league play. The operators pay for the finals.

This league pays CASH MONEY prizes to players who make the playoffs, with a trophy to the winner as an option in lieu of cash prize. The whole-league cash purse is $30/player (for an in-depth breakdown of the league expenses.  This purse is divided evenly across however many divisions we wind up having in the season.  In each division, we pay 40%/30%/20%/10% to the top 4 finishers out of 8 finalists. We may round to nearest dollar for different prize levels.

It is important to the FSPA that we are transparent about how we handle players’ money. If you have any questions, please ask your league SLO or treasurer.

Inclement Weather Policy

League play will be canceled if inclement weather causes Northern Virginia Community College to be closed. If NVCC does not close during inclement weather, the league SLO may still declare “Liberal Leave” which provides for post-play of games by players who do not attend league. If Liberal Leave is declared, it will be announced here on the FSPA web site and on the FSPA mailing list.
