Email Offer-48 Hour Rule

The clarification of this rule is below.
The Junior Girls Operating Code, Section 3.4,

Subsection 9 states: “d. Once a Club (through a player’s parent) offers a player a position on a team roster, the offer must remain open, without changes in conditions, for a minimum of 48 hours for Junior Girls and a minimum of 96 hours for Junior Boys from the date/time of the offer as time stamped on the e-mailed offer unless the offer is declined, in writing, prior to the expiration of the offer period. Once an offer is
accepted, in writing, it is binding to that club unless the player is released in accordance with provisions
of the relevant governing documents. Binding offers cannot be made to any player until 7 pm the Wednesday after Tryouts for the Junior Girls OR after the start of the tryout period for Junior Boys. All written correspondence must be submitted via email.

Subsection 10 states: 10. ALL OFFERS:
a. If a parent wants changes to the offer prior to acceptance, the offer must first be declined in
writing and then the negotiation process may begin. The changes may be negotiated with the club. If
terms are reached, a new offer may be extended by the club to the parent/player with a new 48-hour
acceptance window. However, a club may choose to decline to send a revised offer.
b. Any terms that are reached must be reflected in the new offer and accepted within 48 hours
in writing via the offer email and CC’d to offers@krva.org in order to be binding.
c. All offers must be in writing and e-mailed with a cc to offers@krva.org and must use the
corresponding offer template available on the KRVA Forms and Documents page.
d. Each offer must include the required information on the template
e. Clubs may add more details or any of the optional information if they wish or if it has been
negotiated in

Tryout Picture:

With the growing size of our club and the number of athletes who attend each tryout, the coaching staff has decided that it would make team selection easier if we have pictures and video to refer to. Head shot pictures will be taken upon arrival at tryouts to be used by the coaches during team selections. Pictures will be deleted after team selections are final. We will also have video of the tryouts that will also be deleted upon team selections are final.
