Adding a player or players
I would like to know from SSUSA standpoint the ruling on this situation. I have a couple of players who have called me and their team got bumped from 50 MAJ to MAJ+ and they are being let go because they are expendable at the 50 MAJ+ level. They would like to play for us and we just got moved down to AAA for our performance in the 55 MAJ Worlds. They are also turning 55 and would like to play at the 55 age group. The other team is a 50 MAJ+ team now. They haven't played a game with them as MAJ+ and I would like to add him or them to my team as 55 AAA players. Can I get a ruling here on this?

Can drop one rating index per season.Weather or not they have played 50 plus their old team rating follow them (the player) for two years.

50 major plus has a ratings index of 9. 55AAA rating index of 6
In this scenario they could only drop to play 50 major 55 maj plus-both which have ratings index of 8.

SO, Titan what you are saying is he can't play this year at all then. He is released by his team and I can't pick him up so he can't play at all this year? There are no other teams in our area to play for except 55 AAA.

Paul that would be a question for the SSUSA office.There may be a special circumstance ruling that could be made. Again that is an SSUSA issue to rule .I don't see how you get around the fact that the players are rated Major Plus.That won't change.
