Here is a list of frequently asked questions.
Average Joe Sports Club currently offers leagues in Burlington and Oakville. We hope to expand to neighbouring communities as we continue to grow. The venues themselves will be a mix of school facilities (fields and gyms), community centres, public fields and private facilities.
Games are played once a week on a given day, Monday to Thursday. For example, if you sign up for Monday soccer, you know you have a game each week on Monday. Games are scheduled during the evening. If you have a special request for games times or locations, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
No. You can add players at anytime. The only stipulation is that they have to be added to your roster before they play in a game. In order to be eligible for the playoffs, members must have played the minimum number of games (please check the rules for the minimum games for each season) with the team.
Once you have registered your team, add players to your roster by signing into your profile and clicking onto your team. From there, you can invite players to your team by entering in their name and email. They will receive an email from Average Joe Sports Club telling them that they have been invited to your team. They then click on the link in the email and create a profile for themselves. Once they do this, they will automatically be added to your team.
The skill level varies depending on the teams that sign up. However, generally these leagues are very recreational in nature. People new to a sport are welcome to join. Also, there will be many players that are skilled. Essentially, it is a mix of all skill levels. The goal is to have fun. When there are enough teams signed up, Average Joe Sports Club will divide the leagues into 2 divisions along skill levels.
Yes. We will have 4 seasons of fun, recreational sports leagues (spring, summer, fall and winter). The sports offered will change slightly depending on the season.
Yes. We have deals set up at local bars in Burlington and Oakville (Click here to visit our Partners page for a complete list). We encourage you to take advantage of these deals after your game (or any other time). The more often Average Joe Sports Club members visit our sponsor bars, the better our deals will become. When you go to a sponsor bar, make sure you tell them that you are with Average Joe Sports Club.
Yes. There are prizes for the winning teams in each league. Each team member will get a t-shirt.
Spirit Points are awarded by each team to their opponents after each game. They can range from 0 to 5 points in increments of .25. Essentially, they are a subjective grade of the amount of spirit that a team displayed when they played. If a team was on-time, enthusiastic, showed sportsmanship and generally fun to play against, their opponents would give them a score of 5 spirit points. Spirit points given are not visible by anyone in the league except league administrators. This way, there will be no strategic gaming with the awarding of spirit points.
