Short Text Alert System: Text the word HEROES to #21321 for league info alerts
Download a team roster sheet here.
In order to have more competitive schedules, when possible - and at your request, we will sched- ule separate “divisions” in each age group with some crossover games during the regular sea- son. Teams which are made up of primarily the younger year in any age group will play teams their own age more often during the season. Playoffs seeds will be determined by regular season records.
1. Rainouts and league info is texted to anyone in the league automatically if you sign up for our ‘short text alert program’ Text the word HEROES to our # 21321 on any cell phone. All teams must report to the court unless the games are cancelled due to weather. Coaches and players could also log on to the website www.queensledger.com any time after 5PM to see schedules and if the games are still on. If the top listing in the sports section says All Heroes Basketball games are cancelled today, then do not report to the court. If nothing appears on the web site then the referee is in charge of cancelling the game at the court. If either coach feels it is not safe to play AND the referee agrees then the game will be cancelled. Whatever you usually pay for texts is how much will be charged. People who have an unlimited plan pay nothing for these texts. The bar code above is for android phones to automatically sign up.
2. Make sure the score keeper has all names written on the score sheet SPELLED CORRECTLY before the game starts. Scores will be reported in the following weekly newspapers: QUEENS LEDGER, GLENDALE REGISTER, FOREST HILLS TIMES, LONG ISLAND CITY JOURNAL, LEADER-OBSERVER of Woodhaven, QUEENS EXAMINER, GREENPOINT STAR, BROOKLYN DOWNTOWN STAR.
3. If there is any problem with the game, a coach should email the heroes hotline firstname.lastname@example.org or tell the referee at the court.
