These Rules do not replace AYSO National and Section One Rules and Regulations, but are intended to cover those situations not addressed in the AYSO National and Section One Rules and Regulations and shall prevail in case of rules conflict. (Changes from the previous year’s rules, except for headings, are shown in underline.)

1. PARTICIPATION

Each region participating in the Area 1-P League and Allstar Playoffs may submit one (1) team as the region representative in Divisions U-14(3) though U-10(5), unless a provision has been made for Wild Card teams. These playoffs will be to determine Area 1-P Champions.

2. ELIGIBILITY

Each Regional Commissioner (RC) is responsible for ensuring the eligibility of the players from his/her respective region. (Nat. III.E.)

The Area Director (AD) or Designee will be responsible to see that each player is properly registered. (Sec. II.G.)

The Regional Commissioner (RC) or Designee will be responsible to see that each player has played in at least three-quarters (3/4) of the total number of games for which that player’s team was regularly scheduled (including any "non-standings" games), absent any special circumstances (such as in Sec.II.G).

Any player found not to be properly registered or who has not played at least three quarter’s of the season’s games will be ineligible to play. If a player has played in a game and is later found to be ineligible the team shall forfeit that game.

In accordance with Section 1 and Area 1-P Rules and Regulations, any player or coach who received a red card for fighting during the regular regional season, regional playoffs or area playoffs will be ineligible to participate in the Area and Section playoffs. (Sec. II.G.1)

There shall be no more than 15 nor less than 12 players registered per team in Divisions U-14(3) and U-12(4)., (Nat. II.C.) and no more than 13 nor less than 9 players registered per team in Division U-10(5) (unless the regional commissioners agree otherwise).

It is requested by the AD that each player produce Birth Certificate or Proof of Age and that proof shall be attached to the roster prior to the first playoff game. (Nat. III.E.)

ALLSTARS: In the case of Allstars, and only during Area Playoffs, a replacement player may be added only if a team member permanently drops, and only with the approval of the Regional Commissioner. Once a player has been replaced or dropped from the roster that team member may not return.

Any outrageous violation of the above rule may result in the ineligibility of the team.

AllStar Players must compete in the Division in which they participated during the regular season. (Sec. V.C.)
