NERVA Region Hold Procedures
The Junior community, in an effort to help protect Region Clubs, has determined that if a player has an outstanding balance due a club from a prior season, the player will not be eligible to compete in the current season (with any club) until the prior balance is cleared. A Membership Suspension will be placed on the members account to allow time for the Club to take action in court.
A Membership Suspension of a members account will take place when that member has a failure to complete financial arrangements with a NERVA sanctioned club or tournament. This hold will result in suspension of membership until a settlement is reached. In order to place a member on Region Hold, a Club will need to…
- Have a written contract/agreement with the player and a parent. The club will provide the region with a copy of the contract.
- Make an effort to collect the balance with the player in writing.
- Be willing to negotiate on a settlement with the player/parents.
- Report all “Membership Suspension” candidates to the Juniors Commissioner prior to September 1st each year.
For Junior players, the hold will be removed when the player has reached the age of 19 or for 2 seasons.
A Membership Suspension of a club directors’ account will take place when that directors’ club has a failure to complete financial obligations with NERVA. A Membership Suspension of a Club Director will not be removed until a settlement is reached.
