Borrowing players?
I thought that last year because of COVID-19, SSUSA implemented a rule that a team could pick up to 2 players for a tournament if their team was not playing in the tournament and that the players were not forced to use their transfer exemption. Am I just having a wishful idea or did this exist and if so, is the rule still in place for this season. I have a team that would like to play in the March tournament in Mesquite but can only get 10 of my players to go and would feel better having a couple more players in an early in the season tournament. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Dave. I probably missed it but I saw the rule was enacted in May of 2020. Does it carry over this 2021 season?

I believe so ... Can't recall seeing anything that ended it so long as the Pandemic is affecting tourney travel and the related roster composition ... If you have specific guy(s) in mind for an event, feel free to call Sacramento at (916) 326.5303 during weekday mornings Pacific time ... Good luck!

Hey Dave, some clarification please, my original team (A) had been reluctant to play due to C-19 and travel outside of Cali, so I hooked up with a team (B) same age and division which was my first tourney of the year. Now my original team (A) decides it is willing to travel to Yuma in Feb and I would like to go back to my original team (A) to finish the season.

I won the Bullhead tourney with team (B) but I do not plan on playing with team (B) for the remainder of the season, just played with them to get in some playing time. Can I just show up with my original team (A) and play in Yuma without doing anything?

I found the new temporary rule in Volume 6 Edition 8 of the newsletter it says...

Under the temporary move, managers would be able to pick
up players in the same age and skill level for a single
tournament without the player having to obtain a release
from his original team.

Because this is my first tourney of the year, team (B) I'm assuming is now my original team to start the season but team (A) is really my original team. Kinda confusing but I think you get the jest

My only question is do I need to reach out to SSUSA in any way in regards to the situation above? or can I just show up in Yuima and play? thanks for any feedback on this.

lowprofile ... Sounds to me like you may qualify for the "one time exception", so long as there's not a "second event" involved ... Please call the Sacramento Home Office weekday mornings Pacific time at (916) 326.5303 and ask for either Anthony or Tiffany and they'll walk you through your options ... Good luck!
