|CHANGE IN POLICY FOR PLAYERS COMPETING IN TWO AGE GROUPS|
A SSUSA study of players competing on teams in two age groups has resulted in a change in requirements for the 2023 season. Players will be allowed to play in the same skill level in two age groups without it affecting their overall player experience rating.
For example, a 55-AAA player may now play on a 50-AAA team or a 60-Major player can play on a 55-Major team without being reclassified to a higher skill level. Under the old requirements, players would be listed at the higher skill level. For example, a player playing on a 50-AAA team was rated as 55-Major player. Now the player would be considered both 50-AAA and 55-AAA.
Research of teams and clubs with players playing on two teams, showed no adverse effect and created no disadvantage for competing teams. In fact, players competing on multiple teams showed just the opposite – it was a disadvantage to the teams sharing players.
