My child is injured. Who do I notify?
If your child has an injury please provide a doctors certificate to the secretary within 7 days of their return to play so that your child may still be eligible for finals. KMDBA eligibility criteria is 8 games played per season to qualify for finals games.
PLEASE NOTE: If the recovery time is expected to be less than 4 weeks please speak to your team manager. The TM will discuss with the remaining team whether they are happy to cover your child’s teampay amount for the duration. If the injury is severe enough that the recovery is between 5 weeks and the remaining games of the season, then the Team Manager should remove your child’s name from Team Pay. In the event of your child returning before the end of the season, you will need to re-join your team on Team Pay.
