All returning players who register prior to the deadline, will return to their previous team unless they elect to be placed into the draft or the team is disbanded due to a lack of returning players.
All registrations received after this date will result in the player being assigned to the player pool to await assignment to a team. There will be no exceptions to this deadline.
Why are we doing this? In previous seasons, players who registered at the last minute created a great deal of difficulty with team assignments, fair and equitable placements, and controversy regarding the method of assignments. By creating a ‘line in the sand’, the Director of Player Personnel will have ample time to structure and implement a fair and reasonable method along with the ability for the league to better prepare schedules, field assignments, etc.
