SENIOR LEAGUE PLAYER MINIMUM AGE

There seems to be some misinformation concerning minimum age or grade for Senior League Players.  The age ranges from 18 maximum, player cannot be currently playing college ball, to a minimum of incoming freshmen for next school year.  8th graders or below as of next year cannot play.  Age restriction is that it is a mixed age league from 14 to 18 and the league is concerned over safety.  Players that do not meet requirements will be removed from league.

CONFLICT POLICY

 

 

CONFLICT SCHEDULES WERE REQUESTED AT THE START OF THE SEASON. WHILE I UNDERSTAND A FEW SCHOOL EVENTS ARE SCHEDULED AFTER THAT DATE. Any reschedule REQUEST puts a hardship on the other team.  Policy will be any reschedule must be approved by team being requested to reschedule.  League will then reschedule to an open date.  If either team cannot play on that date the game will be a forfeit on the team requesting the reschedule. 

Please email approval of the initial request to , then acceptance of the reschedule when received to same email.

THIS WILL BE THE RESCHEDULE POLICY, IN ADDITION TO THE RULES THAT STATE AS LONG AS A TEAM AS 8 PLAYERS YOU WILL NEED TO PLAY.  ADDITIONALLY ACCEPTABLE REASONS FOR PLAYERS NOT BEING AVAILABLE WILL BE SCHOOL TRIPS & EVENTS, ILLNESS, DEATHS.

 

Bill Franklin

Program Director.
