Gals 16U Rules & Guidelines

GALS LEAGUE
16U RULE MODIFICATION
2017

Teams playing in the 16U age division of the GALS spring/summer league may choose to roster two (and only two) players that are eligible for 18U ASA/USA status for play in GALS LEAGUE PLAY ONLY. These players can play any position EXCEPT pitcher. Each of these ‘above age’ players must be designated on the league roster and each game line-up card. Each player must carry and provide upon request a photo ID to any ASA/USA official or GALS League Board Member. If such a player is found to be in the pitcher’s position during any league game, that player is disqualified from ANY further league play during the 2017 league season. The game will be declared a forfeit to the non-offending team.

ALL ‘above age’ players must still be in high school as of May/June 2017. ALL ‘above age’ players must be registered with ASA/USA for the 2017 season. ALL ‘above age’ players must be on the teams GALS league roster (signed by a parent/guardian) prior to their first games with the GALS league. ALL ‘above age’ players must complete the required GALS paperwork and pay the GALS league player fees same as any other player on the roster.

Any 14U teams (Club/Tournament) who were previously required to play up in the 16U age division for league play will be given the choice to remain at the 14U age division for league or play in the 16U age division. The 14U teams choosing to play up in the 16U age division for league can also choose to add two ‘above age’ players to their GALS LEAGUE roster, using 16U players or the above designated 18U players. Added 16U players may play any defensive position including pitcher. Any 16U players must also provide photo ID when requested (as above). ALL 16U players must be registered with ASA/USA for the 2017 season. ALL 16U players must be on the teams GALS league roster prior to their first games with the GALS league. All 16U players must complete the required GALS paperwork and pay the GALS league player fees same as any other player on the roster. Any 14U team playing in the 16U age division choosing to add 18U players as their ‘above age’ players are under the same restrictions for 18U as stated above. NO player can be listed on more than one GALS league roster.

This rule will supplement the GALS rules of play for the 2017 playing season and will be reviewed for renewal after the season.
