GUEST PLAYER FAQ
Can a Guest Player ‘play down’ an age group?
No. A player can only guest play for a team which is age appropriate for the player. This means that a U13 player cannot play down on a U12 team. Note: A player that regularly plays up in an older age group can guest play for a team which is the same as their true age. For example a U12 player that is playing up on a U14 team during the regular season can guest play for a U12 team.
Can a Guest Player ‘Play Up’ an age group?
Yes. Guest Players can ‘Play Up’ one age group as is permitted for regular season rosters.
Can Competitive Player guest play for a Recreational Team?
No. A player who is rostered on a Competitive Team cannot play on a Recreational Team.
