Any forfeits automatically disqualify you for playoffs. A lot of time is spent reserving fields and gyms time and time again. The permits are expensive because of demand and we also live in an area where we can play outside year round, which also makes field maintenance costs high.
We hear all sorts of excuses during the rainy months. So please don't forfeit and remind all your teammates that you all signed up to play in a league!

No forfeits get rescheduled! Permits for fields get paid for in advance and referees also get paid whether or not a game is played.
