New play-up request policy

We are alerting families to a policy change within PWGFS. Any player who wishes to be considered playing up a division from the one she is currently age eligible, please see the procedures below. The Fall Procedure is in place this fall season and families can now reach out to their spring season coach and their division commissioner with the request. If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to  [email protected].

Play Up Request Policy (pwgfs.net)

Spring Procedures:
  • The player's parent needs to forward a request to the Player Agent\Registrar. The player must attend Spring Skills Assessment for the division she wants to be considered for. The coaches will evaluate her for their division and will meet immediately after and discuss the players skillset. 
  • The player will be informed after the assessment of the coaches and division commissioner's decision. If the coaches and the commissioner determine that the player's skill set is not ready for the higher division, she will also need to come to the Spring Skills Assessment for her current division.
  • The coaches and division commissioner's assessment of the player will determine which division will be drafted in.
Fall Procedures (NEW):
  • The player must be in the play-up player pool in the Spring season or be on a travel/Alliance team at the higher division in order to be considered for playing higher than their age division.
  • The player's parent will submit a request to her coach and division commissioner for her current age division.
  • The player's coach, current division commissioner and next-level division commissioner will discuss the request. After the discussion the commissioners will bring the request to the board for discussion.  
  • The board will vote on the request and the parent of the player will be notified by the Player Agent.
  • If the request is approved, the player will be responsible for any difference in registration fees. The player will need to make a payment before the player is assigned to a team using fall draft rules.
