Rules Variations

For the Fall 2022 season, we are continuing to use preplays to manage absences. Preplays can be played with any other person, and does not have to be another league member.

Dues / Prizes / Expenses / Whatnot

The MOM’s league collects dues of $40 per player for each 10 week league season. We also collect “kitty” money, which comes from any free credits on machines (due to replay, match, etc) during league play. The dues and kitty together form the league’s treasury.

This league pays CASH MONEY prizes to players who make the playoffs, plus a lovely trophy to the winner. The whole-league cash purse is approximately $28/player (for an in-depth breakdown of the league expenses, click here).  This purse is divided across however many divisions we wind up having in the season, with A Division getting a percentage of the total and the other divisions getting 90% of the division above it. In each division, if there are 4 finalists, we pay 40%/30%/20%/10% of the division’s share of the purse to 1st/2nd/3rd/4th place finishers at the end of the playoffs. If there are 3 finalists, we pay 50%/30%/20% of the division’s share of the purse to 1st/2nd/3rd place finishers at the end of the playoffs. We may slightly deviate from these percentages to round payments to the nearest dollar.

It is important to the FSPA that we are transparent about how we handle players’ money. If you have any questions, please ask your league treasurer.

Inclement Weather Policy

League play will be canceled if inclement weather causes the University of Maryland, College Park to be closed. If UMCP does not close during inclement weather, the league SLO may still declare “Liberal Leave” which provides for post-play of games by players who do not attend league. If Liberal Leave is declared, it will be announced here on the FSPA web site and on the FSPA mailing list.

Location Policy

We will be following MOM’s store rules for mask wearing and whatnot. If they say masks are required, we’re wearing masks for league, so come prepared!
