Players playing UP

Playing Up
(From V.I.M.L.C. Policies)

F-10 (a) Players are allowed, with the permission of their coach or manager and association, to play up one division or tier for a maximum of four (4) games which includes league play, tournaments and playoff games. 
(b) As per BCLA operating policy 4.07
(c) any player who has played up a total of 5 or more league, playoff, sanctioned tournament or combination thereof in any division or caliber higher than the one in which registered, must for the reminder of the year play for the division or caliber higher in which they played their 5th game. The home association will determine which team in that division that the player will play on if there is more than one team in the higher division or if the player has played across multiple levels in a tiered division.  

F-11 A player registered to an “A” team shall be allowed to play on a “B” or “C” level team of the division higher. (Example a pee wee A player may play on a bantam B team) Teams will not be allowed more than two of these call up players. Teams who continue to play A players on a C team will be noted by the commissioners, this case should be used in extreme circumstances only.  

F-12 A player registered to a “B” team will be allowed to play on a C team in the division higher. (Example a bantam B player may play up on a midget C team) Teams will not be allowed more than two of these call up players.  

F-13 No player may play more than two (2) games in any one day during regular league play. 

F-14 In all V.I.M.L.C. play-offs, the current BCLA operating policy will be applicable to any individual player as well as the whole team.   F-15 For V.I.M.L.C. play-offs players are allowed, with the permission of their coach or manager, to play up one division, or from Tier C to Tier B to Tier A in the same division, without having to establish eligibility by playing a set number of games prior to the play-offs. However, Rules F-11 and F-12 still apply.  
A reminder that in the event a player is called up, please use the one game permit form in the binder. You must contact the head coach of the team you are calling from, have his/her approval and the signature of the head coach. Please do not approach the player; first contact is made with the head coach. Keep a copy for your file and attach the original copy to the game sheet.  This information goes to the commissioner and he/she keeps track of the all games that player has played. It is very important for you to also keep a record as discrepancies may arise and if picked up for Provincials will have to provide scoresheets proving the player has played those games. If you have any questions regarding this please contact the Head Coach or President.
