1. Why 288? Why not 613 or another number? That idea was our Senior Coordinator's. Something about working as a spy at Canada's Wonderland north of Toronto and that was his radio call sign thing, we really weren't paying attention to what he was blabbing about.

No, wait, just pizza can't pay the rent.
Since we're still starting up, our payment options are quite limited. These are the only payment options we are able to take:
For now, the only form of credit card we can take is Paypal.
Pizza and a coke perhaps...?
You are eligible for a full refund 2 weeks before opening day of any league, minus a $75 administration fee.
Not sure why you would want to leave such a hilarious, and informal league where you forget about your troubles, but
Sure, but the maximum of players dressed is 12. It's up to the team themselves to organize who plays and who doesn't to meet the minimum (of 3 players plus a goalie) and maximum.
As of right now, no, there is no chance of that happening. We can probably move times around of the same day, but due to
288 Sports renting out the facilities on a specific times, it would be quite difficult to move a game to a different day
A bond is something that requires leather straps, leather mask, and----------what?
OH! You mean for the ball hockey league! Der...
We require the $200 bond as a form of insurance, such as preventing a team from no-showing every week for whatever reason. If they no-showed, we would transfer the $200 (minus a $25 admin fee) to the other team.
We also hold it as a player disciplinary tool. For example, if (and without naming any names) Brad Marchand were to join
the league and does something very stupid (like lick someone), not only does 288 Sports have the option of suspending and/or
charity fine him, we would take some or all of the team bond and transfer it as a credit to the other team's account.
Brad Marchand's team must top up their bond back up to $200 before playing their next game. All bonds will be returned to their
respective teams by the end of the season, unless they have registered for the next one and that bond will be towards it.
288 Sports does, however, reserve the right to make the final decision in these matters.
Charity fines is a way for 288 Sports giving back to the community, especially this early into our start up. Going back to the Brad Marchand example, depending on the severity of stupidity, we would charity fine him X amount of dollars for his transgression, but 288 Sports never sees that money. All we want to see is the donation receipt, that's it.
All Brad Marchand would have to either show is the tax receipt of his donation, or he would have to sit out for Y number of games
Short answer, yes, and yes.
Long answer, also yes and yes, because we will be recording basic stats, like goals, assists, penalty minutes, and goals against average.
Trust us, it's much more fun that way.
As for bringing your own numbered shirts, the only ones are with the team name are allowed. That means we do not allow any shirts from outside leagues. We're cold-blooded that way.
If a team has their own shirt, please inform us of the colour so that we can coordinate that factor between different teams. One- or two-time spares are exempt, but they must have a similar coloured shirt.
Two main reasons: Costs to the clients, and environmental sustainability.
If requested, we can order shirts for you, it's no problem, but there is an added cost to your registration. If you can find a place that can do it for cheaper, even better.
Another reason why we don't order shirts every single season is environmentalism. 288 Sports believes in environmental sustainability and the concept of "fast fashion" to add to our landfills and pollute our oceans, honestly, disgusts us. If we can curb this terrible habit of ours as a species and society, even better.
Short answer, we need as much exposure as possible.
Long answer, as of late 2018, we're still a start-up company with very little publicity. Rest assured though, we're printing these flyers in-house with 100% recyclable paper purchased from Staples. We encourage all who receive our awesome flyers to recycle them after use.
If you're really sadistic though, feel free to use them as tissue paper to blow your nose!
