The following information regarding borrowing players has been taken from the MWNA By-Laws, a full copy of which can be found on the MWNA website – or click here.
“Within the Juniors, an A grade player playing up one (1) age group, may only play in A or B grades. An A grade player playing up one (1) or more age group may only play A, B or C grades. A B grade player playing up two (2) or more age groups may only play in A, B, C or D grades.
All other grades follow the same pattern.”
A junior player may only play in a senior team one (1) grade lower than her own.
The following rules, also taken from the By-Laws, apply to games during the rounds:
“NO player shall play in a lower grade to that in which the player is registered. A player from a lower grade may play in a higher grade, provided the player only plays in one (1) game at any one (1) time slot and provided that, having played three (3) matches in any higher grade, player automatically becomes a registered member of the lowest higher team in which he/she has played.”
Please note that this rule changes within the Finals of the winter competition to the following:
“Once a player has participated in a semifinal, in any one team, he/she may not paly with any other team in the semi finals, final or grand final except for MWNA Rep team members playing as a Rep team.”
