It is strongly recommended that teams have additional IMPACT certified adults verified on their roster and present at all times. In the event the certified Coach(es) is not present (late, sick, is ejected or disqualified), the team must have another IMPACT certified adult verified on their roster and on the bench for play to begin or continue without forfeit. No additional time will be allowed to comply with the certified personnel requirement to continue play except for unused time-outs and/or time allowed between games.
Making Roster Changes
Once submitted, Rosters may be adjusted any time prior to the team
checking in on registration day. Changes involving a Player, Coach, Team Representative, Assistant Coach, or Chaperones (everyone) must be administered through the appropriate Member Organization (same as the team).
Any changes needed during team check-in will have to be in writing and verified by the appropriate Member Organization. EACH change will be assessed a fee of $25. These changes will have to be processed at check-in time at the Kansas City Convention Center.
If the paperwork is not complete, any and all proposed changed personnel will be deemed ineligible. All player roster additions at the Show Me National Qualifier must have written authorization by the designated regional authority. Written authorization includes facsimiles, email or other correspondence No roster additions will be allowed once competition has begun.
Frozen Player Terms and Conditions
- Under the Frozen Player Rule, a club may add player(s) to the roster of one of its qualified teams for the Show Me National Qualifier, provided the additional player(s) are members of the club and the team from which the players are switching has not yet qualified for the GJNC.
- A club may not switch players between two teams that are both qualified for the GJNC.
- If you are considering applying for an Open-At Large then ALL players added to a roster must be on the roster submitted for the at-large bid consideration. The roster is then frozen as of submission for bid consideration.
- Once a female junior player has participated in a GJNC qualifying event (Regional or National), she may not participate in another GJNC qualifying or championship event with a different club.
- For all Qualifiers and the JNVC, each player is required to wear the same jersey number as listed on the event roster throughout the entire event, with limited exceptions as required by emergency or blood rule applications.
Violations of the Frozen Player Rule will result in sanctions being imposed on the already qualified team, its club, and/or the individual(s) involved, including the player, the coach and the club director. The GJNC Ethics and Eligibility Committee will determine sanctions for violations of the Frozen Player Rule. For a first or subsequent offense, the sanctions may be a warning, probation, suspension or expulsion.
At the time the team earns a bid in a Qualifier, applies for a bid in an at-large process, or receives a bid through its regional process, the players on that team’s roster are frozen to that team. A frozen player cannot play for another team in a qualifying event or the GJNC. Obtaining a bid defines the team as “qualified” for the GJNC. (YJNVD, May 2006, Motion 17)
Note: In order to be eligible for the GJNC, a team must meet all posted entry deadlines.
All players listed on the roster of a team that is qualified for the GJNC may not be on the roster of or play on any other team attempting to qualify for the GJNC. This rule applies regardless of whether the qualifying attempt is in a Qualifier, at a regional event that determines which team(s) is awarded the region’s Club bid(s), or through an at-large process. Switching a player from the roster of a qualified team to the roster of a team attempting to qualify will result in sanctions being imposed on the already qualified team, its club, and/or the individual(s) involved. Likewise, no player may switch from one qualified team to another qualified team, even within the same club.
Meetings & Clinics
There will be no coaches meeting. All information will be distributed at check-in.
