Purpose of North Texas Water Polo Leagues/Champs:  The purpose of the North Texas Water Polo Leagues/Champs is to gain experience for all athletes, coaches, parents, and referees.  Clubs need to educate their athletes/coaches/parents regarding the expectations of the league.  We want the games to be exciting and competitive but in a positive atmosphere where all of the athletes can improve, learn, and have fun.  There will be newer referees who will be learning and improving throughout the  league under supervised conditions.  Please refrain from yelling/screaming at the referees during the games (coaches calmly communicating with referees is OK;  athletes/parents should not communicate with the referees at anytime) and/or approaching the referees before/after games (especially in the hospitality rooms).  Please allow the Lead Referee to help the less experienced referees learn accordingly.  Thank you in advance for helping promote a great atmosphere for all involved.

North Texas Water Polo Leagues/Champs Format:  Each team will play at least two games each Game Day.  All games will be 5:00 minute quarters and use USA Water Polo rules (including tie breaker regulations).  Round robin games will not play overtime.  If needed, advancement/placement games tied after four quarters will play a shoot-out to determine the winner (first team to score wins).  Teams will have two timeouts per game.  Team listed first wears white caps, starts to left of table.  We will be using the “honor system” regarding athletes playing in the different divisions (please police your own teams and double check their ages/grade in school).  If a team does not have enough athletes to play their game on a Game Day, please be sure to let the other team’s coach know of the situation as soon as possible.  The team will then need to ask the other team for players, bring up younger division players, or bring in players from other teams to fill out your roster (if needed, ask Joe Linehan for solutions).  If bringing in players from other teams, please be sure to NOT bring in players which will dominate their divisions but rather bring in less experienced players who could use extra playing time.  This game will go down as a “forfeit”, but the athletes who do show up will get to play a game and gain needed experience.

North Texas Water Polo Leagues/Champs Red Card Policy (players AND coaches):  For the first Red Card, the coach/player will need to sit out the next game for that team (specific to team and division).  For a second Red Card (in any division), the coach/player will be suspended for all remaining games in all divisions for that particular League Game Day AND the next two games specific to team and division (probable carryover to next League Game Day/Season).  For a third Red Card (in any division), the coach/player will be immediately suspended indefinitely from all North Texas Water Polo League Game Days pending a review by the North Texas Water Polo League Committee (selected group of North Texas Water Polo Leaders including coaches, athletes, and club administrators).  This committee will decide on further sanctions and/or possible reinstatement for the coach/player.  All Red Cards will be cumulative throughout the year and specific to only North Texas Water Polo Leagues (beginning/ending in August after the Summer League/Champs and before the Fall League/Champs).  All Red Cards are coach/player specific and suspensions will occur no matter which team/club the coach/player is participating.  A coach/player will be unable to participate for any team in a specific division while they are serving a suspension within that division.
