Do you need a sub?

At the 2014 Captains' Meeting, AASL adopted a rule clarifying substitute players. Teams can:
  1. Register individuals to their roster who play who play for one or more games (as in previous seasons);
  2. Request individuals from the AASL substitute/waiting list to play for one or more games (as in previous seasons);
  3. Request AASL to seek out a FEMALE player from another team to join for a game.
Teams who wish to request a substitute FEMALE player from another team must follow this procedure:
  1. Email matt@actonasl.org and rich@actonasl.org and request a FEMALE player to join you for a specific game.
  2. AASL will email waitlisted individuals and AASL females (excluding those who indicate they do not want to be contacted) and will attempt to find an individual to join your game.
  3. If AASL finds an individual, we will contact the captains of both teams to let each know who is playing.
  4. ONLY IF AASL BROKERS THIS SUBSTITUTION will the player be considered "eligible". Otherwise, INELIGIBLE PLAYER rules apply.
