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. For Junior players, the hold will be removed when the player has reached the age of 19 or for 2 seasons.
In order to place a member on Region Hold a Club will need to
1. Have a written contract/agreement with the player and a parent
a. The club will provide the region with a copy of the contract
2. Make an effort to collect the balance with the player in writing
3. Be willing to negotiate on a settlement with the player/parents
4. Report all “Membership Suspension” candidates to the Juniors Commissioner prior to September 1st each year
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.
