All schedules and standings are posted online to .  Week 1 game times are posted to MySAM 5 days before the first game.  The remaining schedule for the season will be posted to MySAM after the first week of games are completed.  Playoff brackets only are posted on the "Schedules" page of our website, all other schedules and standings are posted to MySAM.  Players must have a Liability Waiver and email address on file to access .

What Is MySAM?

Liability Waiver, our office staff will set you up as a Customer in MySAM within 24 to 48 hours. After you are setup, you will use your email address and password to gain access to MySAM.  If you are new to MySAM, or don't remember your password, you can get your password using the Password Lookup Form.

Inclement Weather Policy:
We will make a decision by 3pm on weekdays, and 7am on weekends regarding canceling activities due to inclement weather. Every effort will be made to reschedule activities postponed due to weather at a later date and time, but this may not always be possible.

All captains and players are responsible for reading and understanding the League Rules and policies for the league they are participating in.  Full league rules are found on the Rules page under each sport.  Any questions or concerns regarding the rules or league policies should be brought to the attention of the league coordinator and/or the Charlotte Sports Center office by emailing us at  Additional rules and policies may be added or amended by Charlotte Sports Center before or during the season.

Each team is required to provide their own jerseys. House teams will have jerseys provided for them, depending on the sport. Some sports require the jersey to have a number on it. Consult the rules for each individual sport to determine which do, and which do not. Jerseys can be purchased from Charlotte Sports Center. If two teams have the same color jersey, the home team will have the option to wear their jersey. All players are encouraged to bring a light and dark colored jersey to each game in case teams have the same color. 

FUN is the primary focus of all of Charlotte Sports Center leagues. Please keep this in mind even when competition becomes intense. Any unacceptable behavior may result in suspension and/or ejection from a game or the league.  Fighting of any kind will result in immediate ejection from the game and premises and will result in suspension for the ENTIRE season and/or a permanent ban from all Charlotte Sports Center leagues and events.  Any player that has been ejected will be required to leave the premises immediately.  If the player does not leave, the game will be called and their team will be given a forfeit.

If you know in advance your team is going to forfeit a game, we request you call our office in order to help us make arrangements to schedule a game for your opponent.   Excessive forfeits may result in elimination from end of season playoffs or removal from the league. In order for a team to receive a "Win" by the opposing team's "Forfeit", the team must show and provide enough players to field a team.  In the case that neither team shows, a double forfeit will be posted.  

Game Times:
The posted time for your game is the time that the game will start, not the time to start warming up. Please be ready to play at least 5 minutes before your game so that all scheduled games can start promptly. If a team has no members present at game time, then they will receive a forfeit. A team must have a minimum number of players (varies by sport; check individual sport rules) at the game site by game time to avoid a forfeit. If they do, they will get a 5 minute grace period to have enough players available to start the game. 

Eligible teams based on standings (and not having abused any rules or policies) will advance to the end of season playoff or consolation game as applicable. The top 33% of teams per league advance to the playoff (minimum of 4 teams) and playoffs are single elimination.  Only players that are on the team roster by the 4th game will be eligible to play in the playoffs. All players must have their ID and Player's Card present with them during all playoff games.

League Prizes:
Charlotte Sports Center awards the winning team in each league a Championship T-Shirt for each player.

Rosters & Waivers:
We require a signed
Liability Waiver and valid Player's Card for each Participant before they will be allowed to Participate in any league or other Activity.  The Waiver can be filled out and submitted Online or in person at your next League Game.  All player's names must be on the team roster form before they will be allowed to play.  It is the captain’s responsibility to make sure all player's names are on the team roster before they play.  Players found playing in a game and not on the team’s roster, will cause the team to forfeit that game and all previous games he/she has played in.  The league coordinator will be spot-checking the rosters during the season.  New players can only be added to the roster until the 4th game of the season in order to be eligible for the playoffs. Teams that are short players for a game can use a guest player if that player purchases a Guest Pass. No "pick up players" will be allowed for any playoff games.

Player Eligibility:
An eligible player is one who is on the team roster and has a signed waiver on file with Charlotte Sports Center and is not on any other roster for another team in the same division and one who follows the rules of the league. 
Exception: If a team does not have a full roster for a specific game, guest players are allowed, but are required to buy a $10 Guest Pass if they do not already have a valid Player’s Card. A Team found to be using guest players without a valid Player's Card will be required to forfeit the game in question. In any leagues that are age-restricted, e.g. 30 and over, any player on a team's roster must meet that league's specific age requirements by the first game date. For example, in a 30 and over league, any player on that roster must be 30 years of age on or before the first scheduled game date for that league.

Guest Pass Policy: Guest Passes may be purchased for any player who does not have a valid Player's Card but who would like to fill in for a team for a game. A Guest Pass may be purchased for $10.00 and is non-refundable. The Guest Pass is good for one day only. Any player purchasing a Guest Pass must also fill out a Charlotte Sports Center waiver. Anyone purchasing a Guest Pass must be at least 18 years of age. Proof of age is required. Teams may only use 1 Guest Pass per game. An individual player can only use a Guest Pass once per season. Teams may not use Guest Pass players in the last week of the regular season, nor in any playoff games. Guest Pass players may participate in consolation games. Any Guest Pass player that is ejected from a game will result in that team forfeiting the game, and that player will be prohibited from any future participation in Charlotte Sports Center leagues.
