New age groups:
We will be offering U8 divisions, 6v6 with game day max roster size of 14
We will be offering U12 11 v 11 divisions, game day max roster size of 18
Dual rostered players:
Players can only dual roster or guest play up to 2 divisions within
an age group. E.G. A U10 D4 primary rostered player, can only guest
play or be secondary rostered to a U10 D2 team and no higher.
Players can guest play or be secondary rostered up to the next age
group without limitations. Max of 3 guest players per game.
Guest players can only guest play on one team in a division per season.
All players shall be listed on the loan agreement that must be handed
into the referee before the game. Any guest players without the loan
agreement will not be eligible to play.
Club pass rules for U13 and older teams will mirror the dual
roster/guest player rules.
There will be no club pass rosters accepted by the league for U12 and below.
The teams (U13 and above) using the club pass system must submit all
rosters with the players being used on multiple teams, clearly marked
as to which is their primary and secondary team. For all club pass
teams, the team must carry a laminated, league approved roster to
coincide with their player pass cards to each game clearly indicating
the name of each player designated to that team for HSA league play.
The reason for these changes is to ensure equality in the divisions. We had
received various comments and concerns regarding players of a high level
playing in various lower divisions within an age group. We hope these rule
changes will provide a lot more parity.
Unable to field a team:
Teams that cannot field a team for a scheduled game and need to forfeit,
MUST notify the other team and the office. Failure to notify both will result
in a $50 no-show fine.
