SINGLE GAME VOUCHERS

 From the first game, we will be compiling a list of unregistered players and charging clubs $15 for a single game voucher (SGV) for each unregistered senior player and $10 for each unregistered junior player. This will occur each week until players are registered or the 3 SGV maximum is reached, after which any remaining unregistered players will result in their team forfeiting any games that they participate in. The RDNA strictly upholds this procedure. Please be aware that games played as Single Game Voucher are not qualifying games toward finals and any money paid in SGV’s is not refundable if a player registers later. Also, be aware that:  1. Each team is limited to the use of 5 single game vouchers per season.  2. An individual fill-in player is limited to the use of 3 single game vouchers per season.

DRAWING-UP PLAYERS FROM LOWER GRADES

As per RDNA By-Laws Section Five Conduct of Matches Paragraph (xii); “A club which enters two or more teams in the Association, may transfer players from their lower grade to play in teams no more than two grades higher, until the said players have played three times in the higher grade, hence they automatically become members of that grade; with the exception that clubs cannot bring up players from the Saturday Junior Competition to play in the Monday night competition”.
