A complete roster of your team must be available when your team checks in for the tournament.
All your players must be on your roster at the start of the tournament.
A player can only be on 1 roster for the tournament (e.g., can't play 14U and 16U).
Player additions after checking in for the tournament will not be allowed unless approved by the tournament director to enable you to finish competing in the tournament.
Proof of Age Eligibility
Please bring proof of age (birth certificates, etc.) for your rostered players.
Age-ineligible players are welcome to watch and cheer your team on from the bleachers but they should not play.
If there is question of eligibility, you will be required to present proof of age.
All your players must be insured and proof of insurance is required to be with you at tournament check-in.
ASA Team Registration
Your team must be registered with the ASA as either a JO team or as a tournament team (non-qualifying events only).
Teams must be prepared to show all their rostered players are eligible to compete in that age bracket. If your team chooses to play ineligible players, you will forfeit the games played and all your players' eligibility will be reviewed.
We love to win - everyone does - and we place a very high value on being competitive. But we don't subscribe to the "win at all cost" and don't know many teams that do. Please field only players that are age-eligible and keep in mind that winning is just one facet of having a great tournament experience.
A player can only be listed on 1 team's roster for the tournament. Across all age brackets. No exceptions. No excuses. Cross off a player on your roster that you are lending to another team.
What to Do, What to Do
If you think your opponent is fielding age-ineligible or multi-team players, make the request the home plate umpire. The umpire will know how to proceed with the issue.
The umpires are going to do their best to make the correct calls in all situations. Protests of judgement calls will not be entertained - incorrect calls are part of the game. However, if you'd like to protest the game based on a judgement call, we'll accept a $150 non-refundable cash-only fee to remind you that judgement calls cannot be protested.
Game protests will require a $150 cash-only fee to make a protest for rule or other issues that affect the outcome of a game. A game protest must be made at the time the issue is recognized. All game protests will be reviewed by the tournament site director(s) and the umpire-in-charge. Decisions made are final and cannot be disputed.
Either way, you don't get your $150 back.
