No Minimum Number of Women Players

With regard to the minimum number of women needed in order to play, there was a claim that a team must have 2 women in the lineup or forfeit the game. This is not the case. There is NO established minimum. However, I would remind everyone that when short of women, you can ask someone from another team, playing at the other time slot, to play for you. In the game in question, one team had 3 women and the other had 1. Both teams were playing with 10 defenders.  In keeping with the spirit of the league, we should try to have a full complement of women whenever possible. Perhaps this can be reviewed by the next rules committee.
