Island Garden Super League Org. Rules For 2016-2017

1. CHOICE OF DIVISION
‐A coach can choose the division in which his team participates. The guidelines are:
Division I – AAU teams & highly competitive community teams
Division II – experienced and competitive community teams
Division III – newly formed or developing community teams
League administrators reserve the right to place a team in the proper
division. We will move a team if that team is creating a competitive imbalance in a respective division. For example, if a team in Division lll is consistently winning by large scores, we will move that team to Division ll in the best interests of the overall league.
2. Division I players cannot play at the Division III level at the same grade.
3. Players are permitted to be on the roster of more than one team, even if they are in same division.
4. GRADE/AGE REQUIREMENTS – Eligibility is primarily governed by the grade in which the player is
enrolled as of October 20, 2015. There is also a maximum age, which basically allows for a player to
continue participating with his classmates as long as he/she was retained (left back) only once. The cut‐off dates for this exception rule are as follows:
3rd Grade 9/1/06
4th Grade 9/1/05
5th Grade 9/1/04
6th Grade 9/1/03
7th Grade 9/1/02
8th Grade 9/1/01
9th Grade 9/1/00
10th Grade 9/1/99
11/12 Grade Must still be attending high school

Grade takes precedence over age. SUPER LEAGUE IS A GRADE BASED LEAGUE but a player
cannot exceed the age listed above.
‐Teams playing in Division I of each age group are governed by AAU grade/age eligibility, which
is different from the above guidelines. See Jim Fox for details.

5. Beginning in 2015-2016, there will be separate playoffs for AAU and community based teams in Divisions l, ll and lll.

6. SCHEDULING
· Team availability sheets are due by November 15. In order for us to avoid conflicts
with other leagues (CYO, PAL, etc.) schedules must be submitted to us as soon as
they are received and no later than Nov. 11th.
· Teams can eliminate two days in each week from their availability.

·The schedule will be distributed in two parts; from the start of the season to Jan
16 and Jan 17 to March 14.
7. FORFEITS – A forfeit will be declared if a team cancels a game within 72 hours of its scheduled start. NO EXCEPTIONS. If a team forfeits twice, they will be dropped from the league. No refund will be made. A team which forfeits a game must pay both referee fees to league officials before
they will be permitted play their next regularly scheduled game. Forfeit time is fifteen minutes after the scheduled starting time of the game.
8. In order to be eligible for playoffs, a player must have participated in 50% of regularly scheduled games. Exceptions for injury must be approved by the League Commissioner.
9. Protests—a coach submitting a protest must do so in writing within 24 hours after the game. He/she must advise the ref doing the game that a protest is being filed. There is a $100.00 fee that
must accompany the protest. If the protest is upheld, the fee will be returned.
10. WE ARE REQUIRING ALL ROSTERS TO BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST GAME. THE ROSTERS MUST BE SUBMITTED IN THE FORMAT WE PROVIDE. THOSE ROSTERS WILL BE UPLOADED TO OUR DATA BASE. THE COACH MUST SUBMIT PROOF OF BIRTH AND GRADE TO OUR ELIGIBILITY STAFF WHO WILL CERTIFY THAT DOCUMENTATION. ALSO, EACH PLAYER MUST HAVE A PICTURE ATTACHED TO THEIR ROSTER ENTRY. THIS CAN BE DONE BY THE COACH OR BY OUR STAFF. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
