Proposed By-Law Change:
Section 3.07 - Use of Secondary Players: Teams in the U12 to U19 age groups will be allowed a maximum of two (2) secondary players who may play down no more than two divisions from the level of their primary team. Players playing up or down in age group may still only play down a maximum of two (2) divisions. These players count against the total number of secondary players allowed (3 at U12-U14 and 5 at U15-U19) by PAGS. Players may be rostered on only one team as a secondary player.
Examples: a U13-1 player may play secondary at U13-2, U13-3, U14-1, U14-2, U14-3, U12-1*, U12-2*, U12-3* (*if age appropriate); a U14-2 player may play U14-3, U14-4, U15-1, U15-2, U15-3, U13-2*, U13-3*, or U13-4* (*if age appropriate).
