It is ESSENTIAL for all MMDL Team Captains to understand and comply with the league roster change policies. These policies were designed to ensure equitable and fair competition for all divisions. MMDL understands that the unpredictability of life often results in players dropping out mid-season, or other reasons for additions or replacements, but we must also be protective of the integrity of league competition, prevent attempts to manipulate these rules and have created these policies to create a fair process for all.
DON’T LOSE POINTS – Every season, many captains lose valuable match points because they do not follow the proper procedure when making a roster change. Every point counts in a team’s quest for the playoffs, so if you must make a change to your team roster, it is in your best interest to adhere to the following:
Use of an unregistered/unapproved player will result in match penalty points.
- All roster changes must be approved< by your area director before the new player can play in a match. Make sure that you have received an email or verbal permission from your AD before using a new player.
- Teams are allowed to make up to three (3) roster changes before week 8 of the regular season. Absolutely no roster changes will be allowed after this deadline. You must submit your roster change request to your AD at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled match.
- Your official roster can be checked at any time on the MMDL Stats Website. If a player’s name does not appear on this site as a member of your team, then they are not approved to play.
PROACTIVE COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR AREA DIRECTOR IS KEY!
