2. Eastern and Western Conference for SFL2013 Division 2 • SFA is looking into connecting teams into their constituency. Example Eastern Conference Team Skools Innebandy perhaps with Tampines constituency etc. • So teams will work to sell their club into their local constituency which will create local support from constituency club. • Support from the constituency could come in the form of free usage of their court venue or even sponsorship deals.
2. Eastern and Western Conference • SFA are looking to provide 2 venue for SFL2013 so that teams can play home and away games. The likely venues would be for Republic Polytechnic (Western Conference) and Yio Chu Kang (Eastern Conference) • This will be of more convenience to players as they would not need to travel far to the competition venues.

Teams that failed to adhere to the rules and regulations set by Republic Polytechnic • Punishments will be handed out • 1st time offender – Team will be fined $50 • 2nd time offender – Team will be fined $100 and deducted 3 points of table. • 3rd time offender – Team will be kicked out of league and banned from taking part in SFL2013 season.

An example of what we are hoping to implement onto our SFA website with this new data entry system.
