NEW 14 YEAR OLD RULE
Please make sure you are in compliance with the new rule governing the play of 14 year old athletes in junior high. An athletes DOB needs to be after 5/31/2008 for him to be eligible to play on JH. It will be difficult to get an exception to this rule from the Steering Committee unless the athlete is needed to field a JH team.
** IMPORTANT ** You must submit your DOB for all players in both Varsity and JH. If 14 year old players participated in the past on JH teams without the program having filed a “Play Down” request that was approved by the Steering Committee, then these athletes will lose a year of varsity eligibility. The only exceptions are for athletes who are entering their Junior or Senior seasons as they will be grandfathered under the old rule.
INFORMATION ON TARGETING
In the last few weeks several TAIAO players have been ejected from the game on a call related to “TARGETING”. Remember that TAIAO rules state that a player ejected from a game ALSO misses the next game. With this in mind we wanted to share the following resources about targeting:
For the safety of the players, officials are calling this more than ever, and we as coaches need to coach our players to avoid anything that might be construed as illegal “Targeting”.
