Regulations For Mid-Atlantic 2020 Junior Tournaments
In anticipation of the changes coming to Junior Tournaments in 2021, we have updated our regulations to set our junior players up for success. ADVERTISEMENT Click here to view the updated Mid-Atlantic 2020 Junior Tournament Regulations.
The Mid-Atlantic is implementing an “excessive overrule” policy. This means if a player has been overruled twice in a match, the official may warn them that the next overrule will be subject to points under the point penalty system as unsportsmanlike conduct. What does this mean for players? An occasional overrule is going to happen, but if a concerning pattern emerges during a match the official onsite has the authority to code a player under the point penalty system.
The formal language of the regulation change is available here: Sportsmanship Expectations.
