Call Up Procedures

In the event a team cannot be fielded with the required number of players (9), Managers will have access to a call up list. This list is comprised of players from the next lower division that have been pre-selected to fill any required vacancies. Only players on the approved call up list are eligible to play. Managers playing with a non- –call up list player will automatically forfeit the game. SYBSL will have a Rookie call up list for Minor games and a Minor call up list for Major games. The call up list is determined by a number of factors including manager and coach recommendation, Division Director approval, as well as age. Any player from the list may be utilized at the Manager’s discretion. There will be no active monitoring of the list to determine what players get used and when. All Managers will be given the call up list for their current division. All managers will be notified of which players on their team are on these lists for the next division. A manager cannot pull up a player if that player already has a game scheduled at the same time.
