Grade 4 and Younger Play Up Policy
BAYS endorses MYSA policy 2.10 on grade 4 or younger players playing up into results oriented competitions (BAYS Grade 5 and up is results oriented). The policy allows three exemptions (one does not apply any more) for placing grade 4 and younger players on teams playing in results oriented competitions:
1. the club does not have enough players to field a team in the older age group without the participation of the player;
2. the player’s skills justify the placement.
The policy requires the club to notify the parent league. This requirement is met by notifying the BAYS Registrar and the appropriate division director for the team where the player is placed. Notification consists of the player's name, birthdate and which exemption the club believes applies.
