Playing Up Permit:
All requests are to be made in writing to the Club Secretary.
No playing up permits will be considered until the week prior to Round 1 and the teams are finalized.
The Executive reserves the right not to grant a playing up permit, acting in the best interest of both the player and the appropriate age group.
In the best interest of the player, if strapping is required, it needs to be done by a qualified practitioner (Physic) or a parent/guardian.
