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 or Academy Player guest play for a Recreational Team?
No. A player who is rostered on an Academy or Competitive Team cannot play on a Recreational Team. If an Academy player is also currently rostered on a recreational team, then, yes, they may guest play for a recreational team. A copy of their recreational team roster must be uploaded for Online Check-in before the deadline as proof.
