League Rules

Registration Rules

  • Registration is not complete until both payment AND registration form is received
  • Refunds will only be provided prior to the start of the season. Once the HMBA draft is complete, fees are locked in
  • Players joining off the waitlist will pay a pro-rated amount which will be dependent on how many games remain in the season
  • Replacement jerseys for current players will be at the cost of the player. Jersey order will not be made until payment for the replacement is received
  • Players (including team captains) must play a minimum of 3 regular season games to be eligible for the playoffs

Rules for Trades

  • Captains are not obligated to fulfill a trade request made from a player
  • If a player requests a trade but a reasonable trade cannot be made by the team captain, the requesting player may continue playing on their current team until/if a trade is made or move to the league waitlist (no refund will be provided)
  • HMBA Admins reserve the right to veto a trade they deem as unfair/severely lopsided

Rules for Waitlist Player Pickups

  • Registration fee for waitlist players will include a full uniform set. Fee amount will be pro-rated as mentioned under Registration Rules section
  • Players on the waitlist will be ranked based on skill level to see what round they would be projected to in the draft
  • A player will only be picked up from the waitlist if a current league member backs out/is injured for the season
  • Replacement options will be a player on the list of equal/lesser rank of the player dropping out. For example, if a 3rd round player drops out, the team captain will be allowed to pick up a player from the waitlist that is ranked 3rd round or lower
