Each Governing Division has rules that, if broken, are considered either a warning or a violation. Warnings are a heads-up that does not affect the roster status, while violations will change a roster status. Learn more about Roster Status here.
Types of Rules:
A Warning is not as severe as a violation, and it doesn't affect the Roster Status. It displays a warning status on the roster and the person's name.
A Violation causes the roster status to be labeled "Denied." These occur if a player does not match the age or gender criteria or has exceeded the allowed number of teams. Club Admins may reach out to a Region to request the player or staff be given an exception; if the Region determines the person can be approved, the Region Admin manually approves the person, and the roster status will now read Approved / Exception.
Types of Approvals:
Auto-Approval - If all rules are met, the player/staff is automatically approved without any action needed from the Region Admin.
Manual - The Region Admin needs to approve or deny a team's players/staff manually.
