Info Center


Welcome to the San Diego Pool League Information Center. This is where we will post current league happenings. As we progress in the season older posts will still be made available.


 

This is week three of the current season - from the ByLaws: 

Correction:   This article was updated on April 30th.  
 
There were changes to the the ByLaws made at the Captain’s Meeting, 12/17/24, last season that were to go into effect for the current season. There was no Secretary on the Board last season so the changes to the ByLaws although properly voted on were not properly distributed. I am working to compile all those changes and will then edit and publish the ByLaws for the current season. 

Meanwhile the rule concerning Player Registration has been changed and should read as follows: 

 

1.7 REGISTERED PLAYER - New players may be registered and play on the same night they are registered during the first 4 weeks of a team’s scheduled play. From week 5 through 4 weeks prior to the end of the season, a player must be registered at least 1 week in advance of playing. As proof of registration, their names should appear on the latest standing sheet on the night that they are to play. 

For a player to be added and play in the same night after the 5th week both captains must agree and the statistician be informed of the addition.

A registered player may only switch teams once during the first 4 weeks of a team’s scheduled play. All games won or lost prior to the switch will be forfeited by the player and not count for all qualifying tournaments. Any games won or lost by the switching player will not affect the teams overall scores.

A player may switch within his or her division or move to a higher division. Moving to a lower division will not be permitted. 

During the last 4 weeks of the season, no new player may be registered or play on any team.
