Player Exemption – Special Cases
If you have a situation with special circumstances (i.e. an over-aged player) you need to bring it to the attention of the whips Feb 7, 2023 for Sr Cager. We will then discuss your specific request with the Cager organizing committee. The whip, will contact you with the committee’s decision before the registration deadline.

Billeting Requests 
If your school requires billeting, please fill out the attached billeting request form and attach that to your registration form. Every year we try accommodating all requests from community schools that wish to stay in the venue where the event is being hosted. There is, however, a limited amount of rooms available.  Hopefully, we will be able to meet your requests although there are no guarantees.

For Sr Cager, there will be a non-refundable $50 fee for each room used as well as a $300/room damage deposit. Please be aware that two separate cheques are required (one for the fee and one for the damage deposit).  We will not deposit the damage deposit unless necessary.
