FAQs

Registration

How much does it cost to play?

The cost for a team to play in the World Cup is just $150, while the cost for an individual is $20.

What are the payment options?

Perpetual Motion accepts cash, cheque and email transfer. Cheques and cash can be sent to, or dropped off at, 78 Kathleen Street, Guelph, ON, N1H 4Y3, and email transfers can be sent to dave@perpetualmotion.org

How do I sign up?

You can sign up simply by clicking on the “Registration” tab. 

Do I need a full team to sign up?

Absolutely not. Apart from signing up as a team, you can sign up as an individual as well and we will do our best to find a team for you.

I missed registration deadline but I really want to play! What can I do?

After the registration deadline, there may still be some room in the tournament, so sign up, and we will let you know if there is any room.

Schedules

When will I find out my team’s schedule?

The schedule will be posted by the Thursday night before the tournament. 

I signed up as an individual. When do I find out what team I am playing on?

We will let you know what team you are playing on as soon we find a team for you.

Policies

What is the rain and lightning policy?

The tournament runs rain or shine, provided that the fields are not closed. Large storms that occur at game time may  cause a cancellation. If thunder is heard within 30 seconds of seeing lightning, games will be postponed. All participants must leave the playing area and seek shelter in a building or an automobile. Never stand under trees, in an open field or under an umbrella. Games will resume 15 minutes after the thunder and lightning have moved away. If thunder and lightning are still present 15 minutes later, the tournament may be cancelled.

What is the policy for getting contact information for another player?

We are not allowed to give out a player’s information, so if you would like to get a hold of another player, we can forward your email address to them.

What is the policy for getting substitute players for our team?

You are allowed to get substitutes for any round-robin game. However, for a player to be eligible to play in the playoffs, they must have played at least half of the round-robin games. This is to keep teams from adding ‘ringers’ to their team for the final games.

What is the minimum age requirement to play in Perpetual Motion tournaments?

Players must be of high school age to play in the leagues and tournaments, but to sign up as an individual, players must be out of high school.

Miscellaneous

Are there any after-tournament deals set up with restaurants or bars within the city?

Glad you asked. Absolutely. Check out "Post Tournament Social" for more info of what's going on when your day is done.

Are there prizes for winning?

Yes. At the end of each tournament, trophies and prizes are awarded to the top team and the team who played with the most spirit (as voted by the other teams in the league). Prizes include t-shirts, water bottles, hats, toques, and visors. 

Are the games all at one location, or all over the place?

The games are generally spread between two and three locations, so depending on the day, you may have to change locations. However, this will only ever happen once during a tournament.

How do I get to a certain field or court?

You can find maps to all the fields and courts by clicking on “Maps” on the main toolbar.
