International Tournament Tip of the Day – Tip 17

Replacing a player

Any player listed on the Eligibility Affidavit who is unable to participate because of injury, illness, vacation or other justifiable reason may be replaced by another eligible person.

If a player is replaced, that player may NOT be returned to the Tournament Affidavit.

Permanent replacements must be from the league’s regular season teams and shall be recorded and approved by the District Administrator or Tournament Director in the space provided on the Eligibility Affidavit.

A replacement player must be verified by the league president and district administrator, or Tournament Director for proper residence, age, and participation in half of the league’s regular season games.
