Protest Procedure

 

THE USFTL ASKS THAT YOU BRING ALL OF YOUR PLAYERS BIRTH CERTIFICATES TO THE FIELDS IN CASE OF A PROTEST. THANK YOU.



Please note: It's $50 per team

1. During a game (not before, and not after), if you believe a player is the wrong age, you must stop the game, present the Head Referee $50 in cash, and ask for him to get the Tournament Director.

2. The Tournament Director will ask the coach being protested to provide the players birth certificate.

3. If the Coach cannot provide the birth certificate, the player will be deemed ineligible and the team will forfeit for using an ineligible player, and the $50 will be returned.

4. If the Coach provides the birth certificate and the player is too old for that division, the player will be deemed ineligible and the team will forfeit for using an ineligible player, and the $50 will be returned.

5. If the Coach provides the birth certificate and the player is the correct age for that division, the player will be deemed eligible, the team will continue to play, the player will continue to play, and the $50 will be kept the Tournament Director.

The reason that the NFL charges a fee for protests is to avoid unnecessary and time consuming protests.
