General Club Pass Adopted for League Play Spring '19
As voted by a vast majority at the Leagues’ December Presidents’ meeting, LIJSL will adopt the use of General Club Pass for League Play beginning with this coming spring season.
Players from a different team may now be added to the game day roster, and play for another team, in the same club, if they are age-eligible (based upon current league age group limits, See Below).
Use of General Club Pass will now be available for all age groups, U9 through U19 for league games only (replaces ‘pool play’ for U9 – U12).
Please note that this should not be used as a tool to gain a competitive advantage
General Club Pass will not be adopted for 2019 LI Cup Play.
Please see specific LI Cup Rules regarding eligible players, team rosters.
With the initiation, use of General Club Pass for League Play this spring season, please note the following:
