Hi Everyone, we are a couple of experienced keeper league veterans who are starting a new league. We will begin with 14-30 franchises (with an ultimate long term sustained goal of 30 franchises). It will be a salary cap league, with a maximum cap investment of $100 (Canadian funds). Teams will consist of 14 active players, (9 forwards, 4 defensemen, 1 goalie), as well as up to 6 reserve slots. Teams will face each other on a weekly basis and the playoffs will occur in the last four weeks of the regular season, where we will award the Cascadia Cup. The first prospect draft will occur in the week after the actual NHL Entry Draft in 2014. In the last week of September new franchises will have two time commitments, a 14 round initial franchise draft of players 31 and under who have played at least one NHL game (salaries will be determined by avg ppg), followed by a Free Agent auction of all players 32 and older, whose bidding price will determine the players salary. FAs will sign 1-4 year contracts. Please email Charles at charlespace123@gmail.com or Matt at mnashlenas@gmail.com for more information. I will post our final league constitution when it is finished in the next couple of days, but if you want a better idea of what the details are, you can check out the fantastic Kootenay Hockey League (KHL), (http://www.mykhl.com...es/default.html) where we both own franchises, and whose constitution will be the inspiration for our own. Cheers.

Here is a copy of the finished constitution. Please email if you are interested or if you would like a Word or PDF copy of this document.

CASCADIA ELITE LEAGUE

League Objective:
  • To build a Cascadia Elite League franchise, whose roster of NHL players will compete on a weekly basis during the NHL regular season, the last four weeks of which will be the playoffs, where the championship team will be awarded the Cascadia Cup.
  • Regular owner participation is expected. Owners agree to participate in online drafts, respond in a timely fashion to trade offers, and look after the general week-to-week necessities of their team in order to maintain membership in the league.
  • Commissioners will endeavor to keep the league competitive and fun, and will do their best to let the league govern itself through the active participation of franchise owners. We will also enforce all rules in this document on a fair and consistent basis, and will ensure that all rosters and teams are kept updated, and all payouts are made promptly.
Inaugural Draft:
  • Owners will participate in a real-time, 14 round, draft of NHL players to build an initial roster.
  • The order of selection will be determined randomly prior to the commencement of the draft.
  • The draft will be a "modified snake-draft", where the last team selecting in the 1st round will have the first selection of the 2nd round. The third round will have the same order as the 2nd round, then will continue in a standard snake format. (1-30, 30-1, 30-1, 1-30, 30-1, 1-30, etc.)
  • Players eligible for the draft must be 31 years of age or younger, and must have played in at least 1 NHL game.
  • Players 31 years of age or less will automatically sign a 1 to 4 year contract at the value of $0.20 per point, multiplied against a points per game (ppg) average over an 82 game season.
  • If a player plays in less than 41 games in the previous NHL season a three-year ppg average will be used to calculate a player's salary instead. (Ex. A player who had a ppg to put them at 50 points in 82 games would sign a contract at 50*0.20 making their salary $10.00).
  • Players under 28 years of age will only sign a contract that takes them to age 28. (Ex. If the player is 25, he will automatically sign a three year contract.)
  • Players signing their last Standard Player Contract (age 28 or older in this inaugural draft) will use a point multiplier for determining their salary at $0.22 per point.
  • Players who are 29, 30 or 31 years of age will sign a 3-year, 2-year or 1-year contract respectively, as at the age of 32, all players will become Unrestricted Free Agents, and will enter that year's Free Agent Auction.
  • Players drafted with under 30 games of NHL experience at the start of the 2013-14 season will sign a 2-year contract at $5.00
  • Players drafted in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft are not eligible for the Inaugural CEL Draft, and may not be added as "Waiver Wire" additions during the inaugural season. These players will be available (along with 2014 draftees) in the first CEL Prospect Draft to be held in the week following the actual NHL Entry Draft in 2014.
Inaugural Free Agent Auction:
  • Owners will participate in an auction of players 32 years of age and older as of September 1st, 2013.
  • Owners are free to bid on any free agent, but may not exceed the fantasy salary cap of $200 for their franchise, and may not have more than 20 active players.
  • Owners must be able to dress an active lineup ( 9 forwards, 4 defensemen, and 1 goaltender) at the end of the auction.
  • Owners may have between 0 and 6 reserve or "bench" players. These players may be of any position.
  • Free agent contracts can be traded during the season, but may not be dropped from a roster without "buying out" the remaining salary of the contract.
  • After an owner has successfully "won" a player in the bidding process with the highest bid, he or she may choose to sign that player to a 1-4 year contract. (i.e. A player with a winning bid of $40 may sign for 1 year at $40 a season, 2 years at $20 per season, 3 years at $13.33 per season or 4 years at $10 per season.)
  • The minimum amount that a player may sign for is $4.00. (Therefore $8 is the minimum bid for a 2 year contract, $12 for a 3 year contract, and $16 for a 4 year contract.)
Teams & Rosters:
  • The league will consist of a maximum of 30 franchises divided into two conferences. If there are less than 30 active teams, the league may expand during the offseason using the Expansion Draft Rules listed below.
  • Teams will initially be randomly put into conferences based on the order of registration into the league. League conferences and divisions will be subject to change based on league expansion or other realignment necessity.
  • Teams must maintain an active and legal lineup on a weekly basis. The point totals of the 14 players in an owner's active lineup will determine his or her score on a weekly basis. Failure to dress an active lineup by the start of the first NHL game every Monday during the season will result in those games being forfeited by the offending owner.
  • Active Lineup:
  • 9 Forwards (F)
  • 4 Defensemen (D)
  • 1 Goaltender (G)
  • Reserve Players:
  • Franchises may have up to 6 inactive reserve players on their roster. These players may be any position.
  • Reserve players' salaries count toward the salary cap.
  • Reserve players' point totals do not count toward a team's weekly point total.
  • Prospects who have not yet been activated may not be placed in the Active Lineup or in the Reserves.
  • Skaters:
  • Goals: 1 point
  • Assists: 1 point
  • Goalies:
  • Wins: 3 points
  • Overtime Losses: 1 point
  • Shootout Losses: 1 point
  • Shutouts: 1 point
  • Goalie Goal/Assist: 1 point
Salary Cap:
  • A team's total fantasy payroll is not to exceed $200 at any time during the season. This includes all player and prospect salaries as well as any buyout payments made because of Free Agent contracts that have been released.
  • Teams’ salaries are calculated 3 times during the season: October 1st, January 1st, and April 1st. The average of these three amounts will be multiplied by 0.5. This will be the amount that an owner owes to the league as the Total Payroll in League Fees.
  • If a transaction occurs that puts a team over the $200 fantasy cap that transaction will not be allowed. It is permissible to exceed the cap prior to the season commencing.
Schedule (Regular Season and Playoffs):
  • Teams will play 3 different opponents each week of the NHL regular season, save the last four weeks of the NHL regular season, which will be reserved for the CEL Playoffs.
  • Regular Season:
  • Teams will play 3 different opponents each week of the NHL regular season, for a total of 66 regular season games over 22 weeks in 2013-14.
  • The 2014 Olympics in Sochi will create a gap in the NHL schedule from Feb 9-25, creating one period in our schedule (Week 20) that will range from Feb. 9th to March 2nd, with NHL games only from Feb26th -Mar 2nd.
  • Games will include all regular season NHL games played in a particular week (Monday through Sunday).
  • Teams will play as even a schedule as is possible, where the goal is for each team to play an equal number of times.
  • A win by a team is worth 2 points in the standings, a tie is worth 1 point, and a loss is worth 0 points.
  • Teams are ranked in the standings in order of point totals.
  • If at the end of the season two teams are tied in the standings, the following tiebreakers apply: 1) Most Wins, 2) Head-to-head game results during the regular season, 3) Most fantasy points.
  • Playoffs:
  • Playoffs will take place during the final four weeks of the NHL season.
  • Each round of the playoffs is a one-week sudden death playoff.
  • In the first round, the top 8 teams in each conference will make the playoffs, where the 1st place team each conference is matched up against the 8th place team, the 2nd place team plays the 7th place team, 3rd place versus 6th place and 4th faces 5th.
  • If less than 16 teams take part in the season, league members will vote on the structure of that year's playoffs.
  • In round two, the four remaining teams in each conference are re-seeded 1 through 4. The 1st ranked team plays the 4th ranked, and the 2nd ranked faces the 3rd ranked team.
  • In round three, the Conference finals, the two remaining teams in each conference play each other, with the winners advancing to the CEL Championship game.
  • The league championship may consist of more than a full week of games, depending on the NHL schedule.
  • Home Ice Advantage:  The "home team" will be the team in the playoff matchup with the higher standing during the regular season. If the playoff match ends in a tie, the team considered to be the home team will win the tie break.
  • The winner of the League Championship wins the Cascadia Cup!
Trades and Weekly "Waiver Wire" Additions:
  • Trades:
  • Trades may include any combination of active players, prospects, and draft picks.
  • No trade will be allowed for draft picks more than 13 months away, or any deals that require a player to be given back at the end of the season.
  • Conditional picks based on performance or injuries ARE allowed, but must include specific targets.
  • Traded players’ new team accepts the terms of all current contracts.
  • The Trading Deadline is SUNDAY of the 20th week at 9pm PST.
  • The league commissioners reserve the right to review/veto any proposed trade agreements.
  • If a trade is deemed to create an unreasonable advantage for one franchise, or go against the spirit of the league, commissioners reserve the right to veto a deal.
  • Waiver Wire Additions:
  • "Waiver Wire" player additions begin after the second week of the CEL season, on the third Sunday of the NHL season.
  • Players not owned by teams in the CEL may be added during the season. Players added must have at least 1 NHL point in that season to be eligible for pickup or 1 appearance for goalies. (As of the end of games on Saturday of that week).
  • Players drafted in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft are not eligible for the Inaugural CEL Draft, and may not be added as "Waiver Wire" additions during the inaugural season. These players will be available (along with 2014 draftees) in the first CEL Prospect Draft to be held in the week following the actual NHL Entry Draft in 2014.
  • Player addition requests will be processed every Sunday night after 6pm PST starting with the team ranked lowest in the current CEL standings. Players claimed by two or more teams will go to the team lower in the standings.
  • After the initial Waiver Wire additions on Sunday, players may still be added on a "first come, first served" basis up until the beginning of the first NHL game on Monday or 4pm Monday, whichever comes first.
  • If any owner adding a player already has a full roster of players, he or she must drop a player to the free agent pool if necessary to maintain a legal roster.
  • There is a roster freeze during the CEL playoffs when no players will be added by any teams. The freeze takes effect the Monday of the final regular season week.
  • Added players salaries are $4.00 for the balance of the season.
  • After the season, added players under 32 years of age will sign a Standard Player Contract based on their age, games played and point production. Players 32 years of age and older will be eligible for the Free Agent Auction.
  • "Waiver Wire" pickups are Free Protection (they do not count against a team's Protection List -- see below) for the first season following their acquisition provided they have played less than 41 NHL games at the end of the season.
Standard Player Contracts & Prospect Activation:
  • Standard Player Contracts:
  • All players must be under contract to be eligible for the starting lineup.
  • No player will sign a standard contract after the age of 31 years old, unless it is an Entry Level Contract. Players 32 years of age and older with expiring contracts will enter the Free Agent Auction (see below).
  • An Entry Level Contract is the first contract signed by a prospect when he is activated. Salaries for prospects are determined by their draft position when drafted into the Cascadia Elite League.
  • It is a 2 or 3 year deal, as decided upon by the player's owner at the time of activation. (Use Activation Thread in league Forum)
  • Prospect Activation salary costs go by this chart:

1st overall pick: $15.00

2nd-3rd overall picks: $12.00

4th-5th overall picks: $11.00
6th-7th overall picks: $10.00

8th-10th overall picks: 9.00
11th-20th overall: 7.50

21st-30th overall: $6.00
2nd Round: $5.00

3rd Round: $4.00

  • Any Entry Level Contract signed by a player 30 years of age and older will result in that player entering Free Agency upon the expiry of that contract.
  • Each year after a prospect is drafted; the player loses $0.50 off of his yearly Activation Cost Table salary. [Example: Prospect is drafted 1st overall in 2000 and is not signed until 2004, the players market value is $15.00 minus $2.00 ($.50 X 4 years) for an Entry Level Contract salary of $13.00]
  • Prospect market value decline will not fall below $6.00 for 1st round picks and $4.00 for 2nd and 3rd round picks.
  • Standard free agents will automatically sign a one to four year contract at the value of $0.20 per point, multiplied against a points per game (ppg) average over an 82 game season. If a player plays in less than 41 games in the previous NHL season a three-year ppg average will be used instead. (Ex. A player who had a ppg to put them at 50 points in 82 games would sign a contract at 50*0.20 making their salary $10.00).
  • Players under 28 years of age will only sign a contract that takes them to age 28. (Ex. If the player is 25, he will automatically sign a three year contract.)
  • Players entering their last contract (age 28), their point multiplier for determining market value is $0.22 per point.
  • Salaries:
  • Minimum salary for active players is $4.00.
  • All salaries are rounded up to the nearest $.05.
  • Players added from the "Waiver Wire" during the season sign a 1-year contract at a salary of $4.00.
  • The salary for all prospects is $1.00 per season until activated.
  • Team payrolls are calculated 3 times a season. October 1st, January 1st and April 1st. All players on the teams' payroll on the above dates will be used for calculation purposes.
  • Players on a team payroll include, all active players (14), Press Box Players (max 6), and all prospects (no maximum).
  • Any team releasing a guaranteed free agent contract (FA)must buy out all outstanding years of salary owed on that player 's contract immediately. This buyout is counted against the salary cap for each remaining Team Payroll calculation in the season. A buyout may not occur if it takes the owner over the $200 fantasy salary cap. (See Waivers & Buyouts below)
Unrestricted Free Agents & the Free Agent Auction:
  • Unrestricted Free Agents:
  • A player becomes an unrestricted free agent if their contract has expired and they are 32 years of age or older (on September 1st of that year).
  • Unrestricted Free Agents may be signed during the Free Agent Auction held in mid-September each year.
  • Commissioners will create a randomized list of top Unrestricted Free Agents. Any owner may nominate additional players during the auction.
  • The auction will take place in real time, in the chatroom of the CBS site, on the day designated by the commissioners. This will be as close to September 15th as is possible.
  • Commissioners will attempt to find an evening that works for the majority of owners.
  • If an owner cannot attend the auction, another owner may be given permission to bid for the absent owner. The absent team must consent to this prior to the auction (please email Matt or Charles), and will be bound by any signings made on his or her behalf.
  • There is no maximum bid that an owner can make for a player. Owners may sign any number of players, but may not exceed the 20 active player limit. (See Prospect Section below: prospects that have been activated but moved back to the prospect list do not count against this limit, though owners are still responsible for their salaries against the cap.)
  • After an owner has successfully "won" a player in the bidding process with the highest bid, he or she may choose to sign that player to a 1-4 year contract. (i.e. A player with a winning bid of $40 may sign for 1 year at $40 a season, 2 years at $20 per season, 3 years at $13.33 per season or 4 years at $10 per season.)
  • The minimum amount that a player may sign for is $4.00. (Therefore $8 is the minimum bid for a 2 year contract, $12 for a 3 year contract, and $16 for a 4 year contract.)
  • The salary of a Free Agent contract is 100% guaranteed. If a Free Agent contract is dropped by an owner before the end of the contract term, all remaining money owed on the contract must immediately be counted against the salary cap for the rest of the season. An owner may not buy out a contract if it puts them over the $200 fantasy cap.
  • Standard Buyouts can only occur between October 1st and April 1st.
  • If a player 32 years of age or older is not signed in the Free Agent Auction, he will enter the NHL draft.
  • A player 32 years of age or older selected in the NHL Draft who does not have a contract will sign a two year deal at $5 per season.
  • After the Cascadia Elite League NHL Draft is complete, any signed Free Agent (FA) contracts that were not protected by CEL teams and were not selected in the NHL draft, will return to the team that owned the contract last. There will be a 24 hour Free Agent Buyout Window for unwanted FA contracts after the NHL draft is complete. (See Waivers & Buyouts below)
Protected Lists & the Cascadia Elite League NHL Draft:
  • Protected Lists:
  • Teams must announce their Protected List for the Cascadia Elite League NHL Draft no later than three days before the start of the draft.
  • Teams who made the playoffs the previous season may protect 9 active players
  • Non-Playoff teams may protect 10 active players.
  • A player is Free Protection and is exempt from the Protected List if he has played in less than 120 NHL games before the start of the new season.
  • "Waiver Wire" pickups are Free Protection (they do not count against a team's Protection List) for the first season following their acquisition provided they have played less than 41 NHL games at the end of the season.
  • All players who have played at least one NHL game and are not on a CEL roster after Protection Lists are in are eligible for the NHL Draft.
  • NHL Draft Phase I:
  • The NHL Draft will occur in the last week of September.
  • NHL Draft Phase I consists of two rounds.
  • These two draft picks are transferrable, and may be traded.
  • Order of selection: Reverse order of finish the previous season. (Non-Playoff teams draft first)
  • Any player who is not on a current CEL roster (after Protection Lists are in) and has played at least one NHL game is eligible to be selected.
  • Players 31 years of age and under chosen in the NHL Draft will sign a Standard Player Contract.
  • Free Agent contracts selected in the NHL Draft are guaranteed, and transfer to their new club at the salary at which they were originally signed.
  • NHL Draft Phase II:
  • Phase II of the NHL Draft immediately follows Phase I, and also consists of two rounds.
  • Picks in Phase II are non-transferable and cannot be traded.
  • The draft order is the same as in NHL Draft Phase I, proceeding in the reverse order of finish the previous season (with non-playoff teams drafting first).
  • Teams will be required to fill their 14 active roster spots (9 F, 4 D, 1 G) and optionally their 6 Reserve positions if they already have a legal active roster.
  • After the Cascadia Elite League NHL Draft is complete, any signed Free Agent (FA) contracts that were not protected by CEL teams and were not selected in the NHL draft, will return to the team that owned the contract last. There will be a 24 hour Free Agent Buyout Window for unwanted FA contracts after the NHL draft is complete. (See Waivers & Buyouts below)
Putting a Free Agent on Waivers & the Buyout:
  • Waivers:
  • Free Agent contracts can be placed on waivers during the season for the purpose of releasing the player without paying a buyout. This is called Waivers Phase I.
  • When there are multiple waiver claims, the player is awarded to the team with the lower ranking in the current standings.
  • A team that claims a player from Waivers Phase I is responsible for 100% of the salary of the player claimed and the full term of the original contract.
  • The waiver period lasts four days. If a player is not claimed during Waivers Phase I, teams may list the player at any time on Waivers Phase II.
  • If a team claims a player during Waiver Phase II, that player carries a new salary that is half of the original salary of the previous FA contract. (The minimum salary for a player is still $4.00.)
  • The player's former team takes a cap hit of half the salary prorated over the original term of the contract. (ex. A player with a $20.00 salary on a 2 year FA contract would carry a new salary of $10.00 over a 2 year term for his new team, and the former team would have a cap hit amount of $10.00 counted against their Fantasy Salary Cap for two seasons.)
  • Teams may relist players on either Waiver Phase I or Waivers Phase II at any time. A player must have cleared Waivers Phase I before being placed on Waivers Phase II.
  • Teams must list players put on waivers on the league forum. Te 4 day window begins at the time of the posting.
  • Standard Buyouts:
  • Standard buyouts can only occur between October 1st and April 1st.
  • If a Free Agent contract is dropped by an owner before the end of the contract term, all remaining money owed on the contract must be immediately paid in full and will count against the salary cap for the rest of the season.
  • Special Free Agent Contract Buyout Window:
  • During a special window (the 24 hour period after the NHL Draft Phase II), owners may elect to buyout any unwanted FA contracts at %60 of the full contract value.
  • This buyout amount will count against that club's Fantasy Salary Cap for the season, just like a standard buyout.
  • Once the season starts (after the Special Free Agent Contract Buyout Window), teams will only have the option of paying the buyout in full and having the full amount count against the cap in that season.
The Prospect Draft & the Draft Lottery:
  • Prospect Draft:
  • The draft consists of four rounds.
  • Any player is eligible for the prospect draft if they are at least 20 years old and have played less than 75 NHL games (40 for goalies), or if under 20, any player drafted by an NHL team.
  • Players on your active roster may be drafted as prospects if they are under 75 NHL games played (40 for goalies) at the time of the CEL Prospect Draft. This includes players on their Entry Level Contracts who an owner wants to move back to a $1.00 unactivated status, as well as players on standard CEL contracts.
  • Non-Playoff teams draft first. All non-playoff teams will be entered into the Cascadia Elite League Draft Lottery.
  • Draft Lottery:
    • The CEL draft lottery takes place the same day as the NHL entry draft.
    • Only non-playoff teams are eligible for the lottery.
    • All teams participating in the lottery have an equal shot at winning the lottery.
    • The order of selection of ALL non-playoff teams will determined by the lottery.
    • The commissioners will decide on a fair, impartial website that will randomly create the order of how non-playoff teams draft in the first round of the Prospect Draft.
  • Teams eliminated in the 1st round of the playoffs will select next. These 8 teams will be ordered by regular season standings.
  • Next to select will be the 4 teams eliminated in the quarter finals of the playoffs. These 4 teams will also be ordered by regular season standings.
  • This is followed by the eliminated Semifinalists (also by regular season standings), then the CEL runner up, and finally the Cascadia Cup Winner.
  • Prospects:
  • Prospects that have played in 75 NHL regular season games (40 games for goaltenders) in their career must be signed to an entry level contract immediately (see Standard Player Contracts & Prospect Activation above), and are not-eligible for the prospect list from that point forward.
  • Prospects that are on their Entry Level Contract but are under the 75 games played limit may be returned to the prospect list, though their salary will still count against the Salary Cap.
  • A player is Free Protection and does not count against the 9 (playoff teams) or 10(non-playoff teams) player limits of the Protected Lists until they have played 120 NHL regular season games.
  • Any prospect who plays his 75th NHL game after the CEL trade deadline will not be forced to sign an Entry Level Contract until the offseason.
  • Teams are not limited to a maximum number of prospects, but must pay a salary of 1.00 for each unactivated player on the prospect list.
Expansion Rules:
  • Cascadia Elite League expansion will depend on the number of new franchises entering the league as well as the current number of teams participating in the league.
  • The league will have a maximum size of 30 franchises.
  • Expansion teams will participate in their first Prospect Draft with the status of a Non-playoff team, and so will have a chance at the #1 overall prospect pick.
  • Expansion teams will pick first at the beginning of each round of the Cascadia Elite League NHL Draft. If there is more than one expansion team, the order expansion teams will select at the beginning of each round will be randomized.
  • In a year where there is going to be an Expansion Draft, owners will be asked to create an Expansion Draft Protection List prior to the Expansion Draft. This is NOT the same thing as the standard Protection List (discussed above).
  • The Expansion Draft Protection List would be due by August 15th (date subject to change).
  • Depending on the number of franchises joining the league, current teams will have fewer protection slots available for his or her Expansion Draft Protection List.
  • 1-2 new teams: 1 less protection slot (i.e. 8 for playoff teams, 9 for non-playoff teams)
  • 3-6 new teams: 2 less protection slots (i.e. 7 for playoff teams, 8 for non-playoff teams)
  • 7-10 new teams: 3 less protection slots (i.e. 6 for playoff teams, 7 for non-playoff teams)
  • The Expansion Draft will occur around the 1st week of September, pending new owner availability.
  • New owners will select in a randomly determined order (this order will be used in reverse to determine how expansion teams draft at the start of each round of the CEL NHL Draft to promote parity and fairness.)
  • Each new owner will draft up to 14 players not currently on a CEL roster. Players must have played in at least 1 NHL regular season game in order to be eligible for selection.
  • If a player 32 years of age or older is selected who does have a currently sign Free Agent (FA) contract, that player will sign for two years at $5.00 per season.
Prize Money Distribution:
  • Total amount of prize money is dependent upon the total income of the CEL though player salaries, minus league expenses.
  • Prize money that results in less than a $75 balance (see League Fees below)will be applied as credit to the following season, unless the owner does not wish to continue in the league.
  • Regular Season Prize Money (%38 of total prize amount):
    (2)Conference Winners 5%

(2) 2nd Place Teams: 4%

(2) 3rd Place Teams: 3%

(2) 4th Place Teams: 2%

(2) 5th Place Teams: %1.5

(2) 6th Place Teams: %1.5

(2) 7th Place Teams: %1

(2) 8th Place Teams: %1

  • Playoff Prize Money (%62 of total prize amount):
    (1) Cascadia Cup Champion: 14%
    (2) Playoff Win Round 3: 8%
    (4) Playoff Win Round 2: 4%
    (8) Playoff Win Round 1: 2%
League Fees:
  • Owners are required to pay the Total Payroll amount as described in the Salary Cap section above.
  • Reminder: (Teams’ salaries are calculated 3 times during the season: October 1st, January 1st, and April 1st. This includes all player and prospect salaries as well as any buyout payments made because of Free Agent contracts that have been released. The average of these three amounts will be multiplied by 0.5).
  • Owners will be required to pay any outstanding salary owed on the season by April 15th. (This will be calculated April 1st, since this is the last of the three salary calculation dates needed to produce a team's Total Payroll amount). This is so that prize payouts can be made as promptly as possible.
  • Owners must have a balance of $75 toward the next season by May 31st in order to guarantee their teams for the following season. If this payment is missed, the owner will have until September 1st to pay the $75, along with a $25 fine. Until an owner is in good standing, they will be ineligible to make trades in the league.
  • Prize payouts will be made the week following May 1st
  • If any team is not in good standing as of June 1st, the Cascadia Elite League may endeavor to find a new owner for the franchise.
  • A PayPal account will be created in order to facilitate all league payments. If you wish not to use PayPal, please arrange a payment method with the commissioners.
