Appeals Procedure for Exceptions to Eligibility Rules
It is the intent of the League that all teams willingly participate in the League according to the Eligibility Rules and the Code of Conduct. Exceptions to the above eligibility rules will be reviewed by the following appeals procedure:
The Program Director submits an appeal to the Appeals Chair.
The Appeals Committee will review each case, requesting additional information as required. A simple majority is required to grant the appeal.
The Appeals Committee Chairman will communicate the result of the review to the Board and appropriate Commissioner and Program Director. Exceptions to Eligibility Rules are granted only for the current season.
When an appeal is granted, the TCBL Board retains the right to reconsider a decision when warranted by significant and material events that occur during the course of the season.
Player and team eligibility appeals must be filed by October 24, 2018.
Appeals are granted for the current season only and not grandfathered.
Minimum roster: Teams must have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 players on its roster. Note: Teams are allowed to file an appeal if they believe they can commit to the TCBL schedule with a roster less than the league minimum. Teams submitting rosters with less than the required league minimum that have not filed an appeal will not be accepted.
