San Antonio SSC Bowling Rules
There is no maximum number of players allowed on a team’s roster provided all players have signed the San Antonio SSC Roster/Waiver form. It is the responsibility of all team captains to ensure players are in compliance with this policy. Teams have up until the third week of the season to make changes to their roster. After the third week, rosters will be frozen. Roster changes that require additional t-shirts will be subject to availability. All roster changes must be communicated to and approved by San Antonio SSC.
WAIVERS / ROSTER:
In order to participate in the league, each player must sign the team waiver. Waivers can be downloaded by clicking here. Captains need to print, have all players sign, and turn in the first night of play. Players not present the first week of play will still be required to sign a waiver with our staff before participating. A San Antonio SSC staff member will keep your team waiver at the field, or a new one can be printed out. Players who sign up as individuals, agree to the waiver electronically when they register.
All San Antonio SSC participants must be 21 years of age or older prior to their first scheduled game.
Players that have participated in Division 1 Collegiate or Professional sports must be a minimum of 2 years removed from participation to be eligible to play in a similar San Antonio SSC sport.
Players may only be on one roster for any given sport on a given night, regardless of if multiple divisions are offered.
San Antonio SSC reserves the right to request a photo ID from any player at any time for any reason.
Roster checks will be performed by an San Antonio SSC Gameday Coordinator at the request of the challenging team. Only individual players may be challenged. Entire teams may not be challenged. The challenging team must provide legitimate reasons for submitting a roster check request. Challenging teams must report their intention to initiate a roster check to an San Antonio SSC Official as soon as possible to ensure the preservation of playing time. Teams lose the ability to challenge a player’s eligibility after the fifth frame.
Everyone loves a little competition, but one team dominating a league season after
season can spoil the fun for everybody.
If a team retaining more than 3 players has won 3 championships in consecutive seasons for which they have been registered, the SSC will have the option to, in it discretion, request that team to form 2 or more separate teams to promote parity in the league or withdraw their registration. That team will then have the opportunity to form 2 separate teams with each subsequent roster approved by the SSC.
We are all adults, and the San Antonio SSC expects all participants to act like it. Unsportsmanlike behavior may result in that player or team being suspended from participating in all San Antonio SSC sports. Being ejected from a game carriers a minimum one game suspension.
OVERLY COMPETITIVE PLAYERS
All SSC sports are intended to be recreational. Any player who is deemed to be excessively competitive and/or overly aggressive may be removed from competition at the discretion of an SSC staff member.
San Antonio SSC t-shirts are your team’s uniforms. All players must wear their current San Antonio SSC uniform (past season’s uniforms are not permitted) to participate and any player not wearing his/her uniform will be will be sidelined for that game. Missing or swapped uniform players’ names will be taken and if they are not on your roster, a loss will be assessed for that game.
San Antonio SSC uniforms must stay in the original color ordered. Names on uniforms, numbers, cut-off sleeves, corporate logos, etc, are permitted, as long as they do not cover or remove any logos originally printed on the shirts.
CO-ED BOWLING RULES:
Win – 2 points…Tie – 1 point….Loss – 0 points.
All bowling equipment (bowling balls, bowling alley shoes) will be provided by the bowling alley itself. The cost of rentals for each of these items is included in your registration fees (you will not have to pay to rent shoes on game nights). Please note that if you already own your own bowling ball and / or bowling-legal shoes, you may bring them to the alley.
Each team will bowl two separate games versus two different teams each of the four weeks of the season. There will be two shifts: a 6:30pm – 8:30pm shift and a 8:30pm – 10:30pm shift
If a team is short the minimum number of players by game time, the game will be considered a forfeit. The minimum number of players need to play an official game is three, one of which must be a female.
BEGINNING OF GAME:
All teams must clearly specify which order the team members are bowling in. The order must stay the same for each of the two games per night. This can be done with a lineup or name tags indicating who is bowler #1, bowler #2, etc. The order of bowlers (ie, whether guy – girl – guy or guy – guy – girl) does not matter provided it is consistent for each game bowled that night.
Each team will take the top four highest scores (with at least one female’s score) without a handicap. The accumulated total of the top four bowlers will then be compared to the other team’s accumulated scores to determine the winner. If four bowlers (at least one female) begin the game and the fifth bowler shows up after the scheduled first turn, that bowler’s score will not count and the team’s total will be the original four’s accumulated total.
If only three bowlers are present at the beginning of the game (at least one female), the score given for the fourth teammate’s spot will be the lowest score of the present bowler minus 25 pins. For example, if the three bowlers bowl a 156, 135, and a 112, the fourth score would be 112-25 = 87 and the team’s total would be 156 + 135 + 112 + 87.
SHOES / BOWLING BALLS:
All team members must pick up their shoes and pick out a ball BEFORE their scheduled start time in order to ensure every game is completed within one hour. Please alert Astro Bowl or Main Event staff that you are in the San Antonio SSC Bowling league when requesting your shoes for the evening.
FOOD / DRINKS:
All food and drinks can be left on the ledges near the back of the lanes or on the tables behind the lanes. No food or drink is allowed on the lanes
