QUESTION:
What is the SCOR Travel Play-up Policy?

ANSWER:

The 'Play-up' policy reads:
SCOR needs a written request from parents of the player that wants to play up before tryouts in May.

Players who have been identified by a pro coach as able to compete for a starting position on the older 'Black' team by being physically, technically, tactically and mentally prepared to do so can try out for the older 'Black' team.  This option to move players from an age appropriate level to a more competitive level is intended to cater to players who will not benefit from playing at their age appropriate level.  This move is meant to be the best option for the younger players but also the best option for 2 teams involved in this transfer. If players are selected to play up on the Black team then that is where the players play.  

We do make exceptions and allow younger players to play up on the 'Orange' team when that team's participation in the league is threatened because there are not enough players rostered on the older 'Orange' team. However, that player or players being selected to play up must still be able to play at the older Orange team's level.    

We use our seasonal player Rankings data submitted by our pro team coaches every season to determine who gets invited up to the 'Orange' team if there is a need. Top ranked player(s) are invited to play up and we go down the rankings from 'best to to less' until a player(s) agree to move up.  If players are selected to play up on the 'Orange' team then they can still change their mind, decline and play for their age appropriate team.  Time will be of essence and dictate the timing of all involved procedural decisions.

Final decisions are made by the Director of Coaching after consultation with involved coaches, parents and SCOR Administration.
