2018 Move Up/Down List
We also recommend that you check for your status on the PDF file of players who have been affected by the 2018 Move Up/Move Down rule. If you do not see your name on the list, you may continue to enter the divisions you have in the past. If you are in the move up category, that signifies a requirement to move up a division for the full year 2018. If you are in the move down category, you are eligible to play in your current division or the one directly below it. If you are in the ineligible letter division category, that means you can only play in the Open division. If your name is not on the list, you must contine to play in your current division or higher.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding these rules.
