ACTING AS A HOST FAMILY FOR A PLAYER
- As a host family, you are agreeing to act as a chaperone for the solo traveler for the MFL event and as such it is your responsibility to make sure the solo traveler gets to and from the event along with coordination of lodging, meals etc. As a host family you will need to complete a “Host Family” form on the MFL website during registration or at least 14 days prior to the event. MFL will not be responsible for any transportation, meals, lodging etc. as it pertains to those solo travelers that are being chaperoned by a host family.
PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS AND EXCUSED ABSENCES
- All elite are REQUIRED to attend all regional and local practices as scheduled as part of the athlete’s package. The athlete will now RSVP thru the dashboard and we will track participation. Practice/Clinics, full day trainings and team camp are all expected. We do allow excused absences but will not tolerate habitual absences. Injuries are unavoidable, but we need everyone to complete the new online absence form and it must be completed thirty days out or expect a penalty of $100.00. We only allow a small number per team so filing early is imperative.
- Excused absences are injury, unexpected family emergency, illness, recruit based event on a college campus, death in family and school required academic functions. Playing in events for your HS team is not an excused absence such as fall leagues, local 7v7, 3v3 and tournaments. We are your number one priority. Family vacations, beach trips, and hanging out with friends is not an excused reason either.
- No player ever is promised any specific team placement and it is the athletes responsibility to be at their field at least an hour before the first game, be ready and dressed to play. We expect the player to earn their sport thru hard work, discipline, and dedication.
- No player will be double rostered with any other organized clubs at any events and Major Force will always be your primary club for which you will be rostered. We do allow multiple clubs, camps and clinic participation but we will be your only rostered spot at any events that may repeat within organizations.
