New for MTOC 2016 Rosters
- No need for MTOC only rosters - Rosters of up to 22 for U-16, U-18 and U-19 may be used at MTOC - only 18 game eligible
- U-16, U-18 & U-19 rosters freeze on April 29, 2016
The Leagues committee has a new agreement in place that affects MTOC rosters. See MYSA web site
There are three new provisions which clubs may not be aware.
A. Hard copy inter-League waiver forms. In the past the hard copy Inter-League Waivers were to be attached to the League roster. No one did that. New requirement is that the form needs to be in the possession of the League Registrar at MTOC. No change for our regular season. If a team has inter-League waivers, I need to get the hard copy before MTOC. Will review with playoff teams when we hit that point in the season.
B. U-12 & U-14 Roster make-up. New rules require that a U-14 or U-12 team going to MTOC must have a minimum of 75% of the roster from one club. Exceptions to this must be approved by the Leagues Committee. Contact the BAYS President if you think you need an exception. Note that BAYS has no restriction on this (yet) so regular season play is unaffected.
C. HS AGE Roster make-up. Similar to the U-12/U-14 except 75% must be from our League. So if 2 BAYS towns combine to form a HS age team, we meet this requirement. A team that has more than 25% of its rostered players having inter-league waivers and/or out of state waivers must get an exception granted by the Leagues Committee. Again see the BAYS President if you think you need an exception. Also note this only applies to the MTOC (18 player max) roster – not your league roster. he request for exception should be made as soon as you are aware of the need. Waiting until you qualify for MTOC and then applying is frowned upon and the Leagues Committee is not obligated to approve requests.
Passcards – Note all MTOC eligible sections require player passcards (also note only coaches’ passcards require the validation sticker). In addition – All U-18, U-18/19 and U-19 sections – even the non-MTOC division 2 and 3 require player passcards.
All MTOC Eligible Team Rosters:
Teams in MTOC eligible divisions (U-12, U-14, U-16 division 1 and 2 and U-18, U18/19 and U-19 Div 1) must have their rosters validated prior to sending to the division director. Rosters may be validated by e-mailing a properly named pdf file to the BAYS registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will validate it, stamp in and return it to you and the division director. Rosters without validation stamps in MTOC eligible sections are not valid. As with other rosters, the roster must be in the hands of the division director prior to be used for a match. The BAYS Registrar will stamp rosters through the roster freeze date.
Due to the restricted numbers of players on an MTOC roster, once a player is removed from an MTOC roster, the player may not be added back to the team during the season. Several clubs have (tried) to use that technique to effectively roster more than the allowable number of players. Temporary additions to rosters are not in the spirit of MTOC teams..
For U-12 and U-14 MTOC Eligible Teams (All D1 and D2):
Your league roster is your MTOC roster. All players on your roster must be age eligible and reside in your town or have residency waivers. Your last opportunity to file an amended roster is Wednesday May 25, 2016. U-12 teams are limited to 15 players and U-14 teams are limited to 18 players.
For U-16 and U-18 MTOC Eligible Teams (U-16 D1 & D2, U-18, U18/19, U19 D1 only):
Your league roster is your MTOC roster. All players on your roster must be age eligible and reside in your town or have residency waivers. Your last opportunity to file an amended roster is Friday April 29, 2016. The roster is limited to 22 players. More than 22 players needs a waiver from the competition committee for each player over the limit of 22 players. Receiving the waiver involves giving up the team's MTOC eligibility. If your roster has more than 18 players, it may be used at MTOC. Prior to each game, the 18 game eligible players need to be selected. It does not have to be the same 18 for each match.
