Team Eligibility Due to Secondary Players

  • Teams whose rosters consist of more than 50% but less than 70% secondary players may be considered if spots remain.

  • As the percentage of secondary players increases, the less likely it is that team will be considered for acceptance.

  • Teams whose rosters consist of 70% or more secondary players will not be eligible for the tournament.
