Captain’s eMeeting & Draw

This is the official Captains’ eMeeting for the 2014 CMC’s Tournament, we will not have an official meeting at the pool, if you have any questions, please phone or email me.  906-399-7857 is my cell.

Please read through the notes completely and carefully. Captains, you are responsible for making sure your team knows these rules


– Chief Ref is Veronique Seguin

-We will be using CMAS rules version 10.00 (available here: ).  All players are strongly encouraged to read volume 2 of these rules, at least.

-The following additions/modifications to the CMAS rules will be used:

All USA players must pay USOA dues and sign waiver (excluding foreign players), and everyone must sign CanAm Waiver and Media release forms. No team will be allowed to play a match until every member of their roster is in compliance.  Please go here  to sign the 2 CanAm documents:

-Appropriate color hat must be worn during play.  Ear-guards and straps excluded from color requirements provided they do not create confusion about hat color

-Wrestling headgear does not count as a hat – an appropriate color hat must be worn together with a wrestling headgear

-BLUE and BLACK are acceptable hat/stick colors when playing black/dark

-White and Yellow are acceptable hat/stick colors when playing white/light

-Ear and mouth guards must be worn.  Players will not be allowed to play without them, or will be asked to leave the pool until they have found appropriate protection.

-No body writing of any kind (except C, VC as appropriate)

-Observe venue rules regarding food, drink, glass containers on deck, etc.  Everyone please, team gear in the bleachers in the 2nd level, no gear on the pool deck or lower bleachers.

-Team rosters must be submitted before first game you play.  No modifications allowed after that point

-Players arriving late to a game must notify officials at officials table

-“C” and “VC” clearly marked on both shoulders of captain and vice-captain, respectively

-In-water coaches must not wear head gear and be in the center portion between the sub boxes.

-‘Minnesota Rule’ and ‘Dilly-Dally Rule’ apply for reffing.  Sign up refs (2 per team) before your game starts (Put your team’s names on the line of the game you PLAY, not the game you ref)

-Glove-color rules will NOT be enforced, but unsportsmanlike conduct infringements may be called if glove color is being used to intentionally mislead/confuse other players or officials

-Only active team captain (vice-captain in captain’s absence) may speak to officials during a match

-‘Colorful metaphors’ and other inappropriate language/gestures will not be tolerated, keep it clean peeps.

– In the court set up to film (large court), the black team is responsible for providing an extra person to film in the next game.


-Black starts on the guard shack side of the pool, white walks.

-Warm up: There will be warm up lanes in between the bulk head and the underwater rugby court on the dive well end.  There will be periods of time when this is not available.


– We will be using an automated timing system.  Change-over time between games is maintained by the computer, and games WILL start on schedule.  Teams and refs are responsible for being ready when the games start (refs not ready will incur dilly-dally rule penalties).  The game clock doesn’t stop.  The game clock will not stop for penalty shots.
