FAQs

  • 1. Payment Policy
    To ensure your team League &/or Tournament spot, a non-refundable Bank ETransfer or a PayPal payment must be made. Your payment will be refunded if you find a replacement team. Remember to provide your email address and contact number, as well as, an email address and cell number of at least one other teammate when securing your team spot. Payment for a particular League / Tournament does not guarantee your registration for the ‘next’ League session or upcoming Tournament.
  • 2.  Net Set-Up / Takedown
    Our League / Tournament Coordinators will set-up the necessary equipment and ensure the surrounding area is safe for play. Of course no assistance from you will be turned away and is appreciated. It is the responsibility of every losing team, after their last match, to takedown and return / store the equipment properly away. We would appreciate if you could point out any defective equipment to the League / Tournament Coordinator.
  • 3. Sub Players
    An individual is only eligible to participate in League Play-Offs if they have subbed for the ‘same’ team at least one previous week. An individual is only eligible to participate in Tournament Play-Offs if they have subbed for ‘only’ one team, in at least one full game, in the round robin.
  • 4. Supplying Volleyballs
    A bona-fide piece of primary identification or vehicle key is required to secure an indoor or outdoor volleyball for League or Tournament play.
  • 5. Banning a Player
    An individual shall be banned from competing in a League &/or Tournament for a session, event or entire calendar year if they are abusive or use foul language towards a Coordinator(s). We welcome calm, logical 2-way and constructive discussion.
  • 6. R4 Rule Clarification – League & Tournament Play
    TFC Volleyball created the R4 format in 1994 and is played with 2 men and 2 women on the court with a 3 metre line. R4 has been adopted by various volleyball entities throughout the Pacific Northwest and continues to grow in popularity.
     
    GRASS: If a team fields 3 players for the Thursday Grass R4 League they ‘must’ play with the Ghost Rule. The Ghost Rule applies to tournament play too. A Reverse Doubles (R2) grass league team ‘must’ field a team with 2 players of the opposite sex.
     
    INDOOR: If a league or tournament R4 team suffers an injury, the Ghost Rule shall apply and when it’s time for the Ghost to serve the remaining same sex person ‘must’ do so. The above 2 rulings will provide TFC Volleyball, teams & their opponents consistency, competitiveness and fair play taking into account the difference in playing surface.
  • 7. Grass League – Rainout Policy
    A Grass League ‘rainout’ will be posted on the HOME page (left sidebar) of the website www.TFCVolleyball.com, as well as, the TFC Player FaceBook Discussion Page at 4:30pm. It takes at least one calendar day for approval to join our FaceBook page.
     

    ‘If’ incremental weather persists, the on-site Field Coordinator (in consultation with the League Director) may make a play or cancel decision at 6pm. Once play starts, the night is counted as a played week.
     
    If the league is cancelled for the night, we appreciate your assistance in bringing in the (full) net system.
