THe BAYS Registrar announced the BAYS MTOC ROSTER FREEZE Date is Sunday May 13, 2018. No changes may be accepted to MTOC rosters after that date.
Starting for MTOC 2017 Rosters
- Rosters of up to 22 for Grade 8, 10, 12 & PG may be used at MTOC - only 18 game eligible for each game (can be different 18 for each game)
- Rosters of up to 16 for Grade 6
- Statewide Roster Freeze May 15, 2017 for all MTOC Teams. BAYS freezes on May 11 to allow processing time before state freeze
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. Grade 6 & Grade 8 Roster make-up. New rules require that a Grade 6 or Grade 8 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 Grade 6 & 8 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. The 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 Grade 12 & PG sections – even the non-MTOC division 2 and 3 require player passcards.
All MTOC Eligible Team Rosters:
Teams in MTOC eligible divisions (Grade 6, 8 & 10 division 1 and 2 and Grade 12 & PG 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 ([email protected]) 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..
Questions may be posed to the BAYS Registrar
