Amendment to Rules Effective 2015 Season

1.   Rule 2 of the Independent League Rules and Regulations effective 2014 are hereby amended for the 2015 playing season for the purpose of opening up “A” and “B” levels to all players, regardless of school attendance and residency (hereafter “open player”), in an effort to increase the number of players and to fill existing rosters at the “A” and “B” levels.   To be eligible, a player must be a 5th through 8th grader.  There will be no exceptions for open players younger than 5th grade.  All “A” and “B” level teams must provide completed rosters to the Dubuque Independent League on or before January 27th, 2015.  Rosters at the “A” and “B” level will be limited to 12 players, unless a team has more than twelve returning players from the previous year, in which case that team’s existing roster will be exempt from this 12 player limitation and will be limited to the number of returning existitng players. Upon timely submission of the completed rosters, teams will then be allowed to pick up open player(s) to fill their respective team’s roster. In filling a team’s roster with open players, rosters shall be age balanced, i.e. for an “A” level team, the roster shall consist of six 7th graders and six 8th graders.

Any request for an exception or variance of this Amendment must be made by request to the League president.  The Board of Directors of the Dubuque Independent League reserves the right to interpret and enforce the provisions of this Amendment.

To the extent that this Amendment does not alter or replace the existing Independent League Rules and Regulations, the Rules and Regulations shall remain in full force and effect.
