Defaults v. Forfeits

Default

An un-played game that is recorded as a loss rather than a forfeit. This occurs when the defaulting team’s captain notifies the scheduler and the opposing team’s captain at least 2 hours before the scheduled game time. The team defaulting will receive the loss with no additional penalty.

Forfeit

An un-played game that is recorded as a forfeit because the team failed to show up for its scheduled game and did not notify the scheduler and the opposing team’s captain at least 2 hours in advance. If a team forfeits more than once there will be additional consequences (see below).
