Playing players up an age group and players filling in for teams
Occasionally teams may not have a full complement of players due to injury, school camps, etc. Given enough notice the Club or Team can often arrange players from lower age groups to play up in higher age groups to avoid walkovers (such as U14 girls playing up in U16's). When contacting families of children in lower age groups to source players, there's a few things need to be taken into consideration.
The Association has strict rules regarding players playing up an age group and players filling in for teams, these need to be adhered to at all times to ensure the bylaws aren't breached. Breaches will result in a loss of premiership points:
If you are able to organise your own fill in players, that's ok with the Club however the above dot points must be considered so that you don't breach any bylaws. If you do organise your own fill in players approval must be sought from the relevant registrars or the Club Admin before they play to ensure the Club are aware for insurance purposes and also to ensure the KBAJ bylaws aren't breached.
If in doubt, please phone Kylee on 040 77 51 338 before playing the fill in player to ensure you are not stripped of premiership points.
You only need four players to start and play a game.
If you are unable to field a team of four players for a game for any reason (including school camps, confirmations, communions, family holidays or player illness or injury) please notify the Aberfeldie Jets Admin Officer on 040 77 51 338 or at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP so the Club can notify the KBA in a timely manner.
Breaches to the KBAJ bylaws – playing ineligible players
Breaches to the KBAJ bylaws are taken seriously by the KBA. You can find the bylaw and its trial amendment here on our website under the heading of Keilor Junior Domestic competition bylaws http://www.aberfeldiejets.com.au/information-and-policies.html.
Please familiarise yourself with them to ensure that you do not breach them. If you have any questions about them please contact the Club.
