Player Eligibility Rules – PLEASE READ
- Squash NZ have recently tightened up the rules. They have aligned the eligibility rules with Cousins Shield/Mitchell Cup. There is a rule that states the District or Squash NZ may apply dispensation to a player. This will mean that if your club can’t make a team without asking players from other clubs to join you can apply a dispensation.
- Squash Canterbury would like to see a greater participation of teams at the District SuperChamps and are aware for a majority of the smaller clubs this is simply not possible with the number of players they may have at a particular grade. Smaller clubs will have the ability to utilise players from their neighbouring club to allow the composition of graded teams. This model is not to allow clubs to 'stack' teams, but to provide an opportunity for clubs and players to work together so they can participate at these teams’ events.
Rules that will still apply under the club composite model;
- Clubs must prove to Squash Canterbury that they don't have the player numbers in a particular grade to enable a team from their original grading list, if a club has 7 or more eligible players on their grading list, they may be deemed to have enough and therefore denied composite status. This may include players at a lower grade.
- Players will only be allowed to transfer if there is no possibility that their own club is not entering a team.
- Any player wishing to transfer to another club for the purpose of SuperChamps must seek permission from their current club.
- Rangiora might have only 4 players able to play and Oxford and Amberley do not have enough players to put in a team. Then they can apply for dispensation for the 2 Oxford players and the 1 Amberely player to play for Rangiora.
- However, if Rangiora has 7 players that are willing, but they just want stronger people from the other clubs this would not be allowed. So, clubs must undertake the due diligence to make sure a club isn't leaving anyone out that normally represents their club.
