In order to ensure the best possible eligibility requirements and ensure the integrity of Select Events, we have devised a set of standards that will ensure fair play and competitive balance, while not penalizing players that were born during summer months by allowing players to play with their peers.
In an effort to control the integrity in Amateur Basketball we will be requiring teams to bring birth certificates and a roster for every eligible player. Below is how we will be handling the challenges on Age ineligible players.
Players who are found to be illegal will be ejected immediately, their team will also be assessed a technical foul.
On a challenge of a player’s age on an opposing team that is not correct your team will lose a time out and are assessed a technical foul. Only head coaches are allowed to challenge the legitimacy or eligibility of an opposing player. Fans, parents, and assistant coaches are not allowed to make an official challenge. All challenges need to be done before game play. Teams are only allowed to challenge their opponents roster if they have proper documentation with birth certificates.
For those who are caught offending:
To make a protest, there is $100 cash fee. The fee is refunded if the protest is upheld and forfeited if it is not. Teams challenging must have all of their proper documentation. If the challenged team does not then the participant will be deemed ineligible.
