JCP BOUNDARIES

PURPOSE and EXPLANATION

JCP has determined it is necessary to establish boundaries for each area in the league.  The purpose is that the establishment of boundaries will add a level of fairness for each area within the league and allows areas to sustain a program of at least two (2) divisions. 

The document that represents JCP’s final decision on boundaries is to be incorporated into the JCP by-laws as an attachment.

The following will constitute the “Home” areas for JCP teams.  A Home area is a specific geographic region defined by JCP.  JCP may define an area by a specific description or use the description of an area as defined as the community.  The term “resides”, or “residence” shall mean first, that place where the child spends the night the majority of the year; second (if the first definition is not applicable), the terms shall mean the residence of the parent with primary physical custody of the child.

Children attending a school on an “out-of-district” pass, will play for the area in which they reside (as clarified above) until they reach 7th grade.  Once they reach 7th grade, they will play for the school in which they attend. 

Any new areas coming into the league must be located within a thirty-five (35) mile radius of the Cumberland City Hall.  Areas already in the league as of the 2007 season are exempt from this rule.
