Underage Player Policy

Purpose

This policy establishes the approach of the Abbotsford Female Hockey Association (AFHA) to requests made by parents or players to allow a player to try out for and play on teams in older birth years.

The remainder of the Policy does not apply to situations in which AFHA, of its own accord, makes a decision to move players up or down age divisions, which decisions involve different considerations (including, but not limited to, the balancing of teams and age divisions as well as the placement of coaches) and apply in different situations than set out in the remainder of the Policy. In such cases, the Board of Directors of AFHA (the “Board”) may, in its sole and absolute discretion, move players between teams and age divisions as it deems appropriate.
