Discussion: CHANGE IN POLICY FOR PLAYERS COMPETING IN TWO AGE GROUPS - CLARIFICATION "A SSUSA study of players competing on teams in two age groups has resulted in a change in requirements for the 2023 season. Players will be allowed to play in the same skill level in two age groups without it affecting their overall player experience rating." What this is allowing is if a 60 player plays 50, 55, and 60, he plays at the highest team classification, correct. Example, 60-year old player plays 50 Major, so he is 55 major, and 60 major rated, correct? This also means he counts as a 'chip' player if he plays AAA, meaning 60-major rated player can play 60AAA or 55AAA but he counts towards their 3 chip players, correct? To expand on the rule, this rule DOES NOT APPLY at a team level and the rating index applies, correct? Meaning a 55 major plus team can drop and play as a 50-major team, and a 50 major team that allow 4 55 major plus players on their roster will now have to play 50 major plus? Thanks in advance!

I posted this on the wrong thread.
