FAQs

Registration

Where can I find a list of all of the leagues that are offered?

You can find a list of all the leagues that we offer by clicking on “Registration” in the toolbar, on the main page.

I am unsure what skill level I am. Which division should I choose?

You can find our recommendations for which division you should choose in “Registration” under “Suggested Skill Levels”. 

How much does it cost to play?

At Perpetual Motion, we strive to make playing sports very affordable for everyone in our community. Our fees vary by sport and information on the cost for each sport and division can be found by clicking on "Registration".

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 St, Guelph, ON, N1H 4Y3. 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. From there, you can choose whether you would like to sign up as a team, small group, or as an individual. If you choose to sign up as a team, you will need to Login, or create an account in order to be able to access your team’s information later on.

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, with a friend or as a small group. Either way, we will make sure to get you on the same team!

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

After the registration deadline, there still may be a few spots available in some of the leagues. Therefore, sign up, and we will let you know if there is any room.

Can I still sign up as an individual if I am going to be away for a couple of weeks?

Yes you can. Once you find out what team you are a part of, it would be helpful to let your new teammates know which dates you will be away so that they can find a replacement, if necessary.

Schedules

When will I find out my team’s schedule?

All of the schedules should be posted by the Sunday night before the first week of games. However, schedules will be uploaded as they are completed, so keep checking back!

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

In the Spring, there will be a captain’s meeting where you will find out what team you are playing on. In the Summer and Fall seasons, you will receive an email the week before you start playing letting you know what team you are on.

Policies

What is the cancellation policy?

In the rare event that games are cancelled due to field closures, the following policy will be applied:
  • First Cancellation: Games are not rescheduled or refunded.
  • Second Cancellation: Games will be rescheduled as extra games on the night that they play or on another available date. If neither of these scenarios are viable, a partial team credit will be applied in the following season.
  • Third Cancellation or more: Games will be rescheduled as extra games on the night that they play or on another available date. If neither of these scenarios are viable, a partial team credit will be applied in the following season.

What is the rain and lightning policy?

It is up to the discretion of the City of Guelph to decide if the fields are too wet to play on. They will decide by 3:00 on the day of the game and we will put an update on the website if the fields are closed. Large storms that occur at game time may also 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 after, the game will be cancelled and the score counts as it was when the game was stopped. However, halftime must be reached in order for the game to count towards the league standings.

What is the policy for when teams don’t show up or don’t have enough players?

When a team does not show up, the game will count as a forfeit win for your team, and a spirit score of 4 will be given to the other team. When a team shows up without enough players, discuss the game with the other captain. It is your right to claim the game as a forfeit, but it is also your right to have the games count. Whatever the case may be, make your intentions clear to the other captain. Agreeing to play does not mean that the game will count towards the standings unless both captains agree prior to the game.

What is the policy for getting contact information of 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 regular season game. However, for a player to be eligible to play in the playoffs, they must have played at least half of the regular season 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 leagues?

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

Miscellaneous

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

Glad you asked. Absolutely. Perpetual Motion is connected with a large number of restaurants and bars around the city of Guelph to ensure that you have somewhere nearby to socialize after your games. You can find a list of all the deals offered by clicking on “Post Game Socials” under “Team Info” 

What is the “Perpetual Card”?

Some of the restaurants and bars require proof that people who come in for deals are a part of Perpetual Motion. The Perpetual Card is the size of a business card and can be printed off on the website. Alternatively, it can be found on the Perpetual Motion Mobile Site. Simply show the card or your phone to your server should they ask for it.

Are there prizes for winning?

Yes. At the end of each season, 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, visors, and discs. 

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

This depends on the number of teams in the league and the availability of fields/courts at a given time. We do our best to have the locations in similar areas, but can not always guarantee this.

How do I get to a certain field or court?

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