Important Rules to Remember!!

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Memphis APA- this is a little reminder of a couple of very important rules in the Official Team Manual. Please look over these. We would hate for teams to lose points when these rules are violated. Thanks!! 

24​. TEAM SKILL LEVEL LIMIT (pg. 33 OTM)
All formats, with the exception of Masters, have a Team Skill Level Limit. Each format's Team Skill Level Limit is indicated in the bullet points below. A team playing less than a full match must show that it would not have exceeded the Team Skill Level Limit, if all the matches had been played. If the Team Skill Level Limit is broken, the offending team receives zero points for the entire match.


25. LIMITED NUMBER OF SENIOR SKILL LEVEL PLAYERS (9-BALL ONLY)​ (pg. 35 OTM)

 This rule applies to the 9-Ball Open Format only. Senior Skill Level players are those who have a skill level of 6 or higher. Teams may not field more than two Senior Skill Level players in a match. A violation of this rule officially occurs when the third senior skill level player strikes the first rack in
their match. The ineligible player forfeits the match and the teams go on to the next match. The skill levels of both players will count towards the Team Skill Level Limit for that match. If a third Senior Skill Level is used, the points earned by the third Senior Skill Level player will not count.NOTE: Once both teams have declared a player, the players cannot be changed unless the
Limited Senior Skill Level rule is in jeopardy.
