By: icklepaddler On: 17-04-2018

DCPL and Royal Canal Kayak Club are delighted to announce the introduction of an outdoor summer league from June - August 2018 in their new facilities between Ashtown & Phibsborough.

The league will be managed by RCKC as a sub-committee of DCPL.

Entries for DCPL SUMMER 2018 are now open - First come, first served!

This is a stand-alone league, there is no continuity from league positions from the spring league

Team Scheduling:  Your team will not play every week, but should expect to play 2+ games on a scheduled night 
What about my holidays? We will make effort to honour requests for your team not to play on specific nights if notified with entries
How many Games? Teams should expect at least 6 games in the league
Players: Must be CI registered & validation of CI cards will be expected
Rules: Usual DCPL rules apply as documented on the website
Every team is expected to perform Duty/Referee as timetabled with each team providing 2 qualified referees 

Entry Cost : €120 (€100 per team + €20 NCPC levy)

Entries / Timeline: 
Enter your team through the DCPL website - you must login and press the red Register Now button on the right hand side. When entering your team, select what division you *think* you should be in. This summer league is new, so when all entries are in we will review, and if needed teams will be moved up/down to keep the competition enjoyable.

Entries should be in by May 10th.

Once entries are reviewed and if there is sufficient interest then we will confirm your entry.

Once your team is confirmed, payment should be made by May 30th. Teams who do not pay before this date will be removed from the league.

**about the entry cost**
The cost of this competition is kept the same as a typical weekend competition. You should expect about the same amount of games, so that seems fair. 
The money raised from this competition will be donated to PCC to help them purchase equipment and set up as a club. 
We see this as an opportunity to help a new club introduce more people to canoeing, and hopefully canoe polo, growing the sport locally.

Yours in Sport,
DCPL Committee
