Restricted Player Rules:

“Restricted” players will have a small dot located on the helmet and will be notated on the official roster for easy identification.

“Restricted” players can only play for a Park if one of the following two conditions are met:

A) "Restricted" player lives within said park city limits, or

B) “Restricted” player has already been certified for said Park in the past.

If any player certified as a “Restricted Player” is found to have participated in a game at a position outside of the “tackle to tackle” designation or does not meet one of the above rules, this will be considered a violation that will result in a forfeiture of any and all games where the violation occurred. In addition to forfeiture of games there may also be a monetary penalty assessed to the Park whose team violates “Restricted Player Rules”.

NO Player can play up a grade level unless approved by the JSYFL Board of Directors.

In all divisions, no player will be eligible who is in 7th grade or higher classification for the current year.
