TEAM CVC REGISTRATION: RTP POLICY

Please fill out the above form if you wish to register your team as a CVC team.

Team managers or Club Secretaries may fill this out - please advise your position on the form. Once your application has been processed, your team name online will be updated to reflect this e.g. Team Name CVC. This will allow your opposition to identify which scenario the game could be played under - CVC or No CVC. 

For the 2021/22 season, a form will be used to apply for dispensation to have any games missed due to Covid, count towards playoff eligibility.

The above form must be filled out by the Club Secretary prior to the game/s in question e.g. if a player has to self-isolate for 14 days and will miss two games, the form must be filled out prior to these two games being played.

You can apply for multiple games in one form. Approved requests will be displayed in a live Google Sheet that will be shared with all secretaries - this will be updated as requests are received during the season.

Please note: any game that is unable to be played due to Covid may either be rescheduled or considered a draw. If a draw, the game will be put towards the eligibility of ALL players on the team list.

Please see your Club Secretary for Loan Player Application details.

PLEASE NOTE: The Inter-Association Loan Player can only be used within NFS Premier and Reserve teams.

The local Loan Player Form (loaning between Auckland Clubs) can be completed online - see above, however, the Inter-Association Loan Player Form (loaning between Associations) must be completed on paper.

Player dispensation requests must be made in writing to office@softballauckland.org.nz by the club secretary.
