Team Eligibility Change

For the 2011-2012 season, we will be SLIGHTLY adjusting team eligibility rules for Class AA *ONLY* with the creation of PUPs - Pick-Up Players.

The intent of this program is to provide a way for players at schools that can not field a full 5 players the opportunity to play college paintball. It is definitely not intended to allow teams to recruit specific players from other schools for their team.

There is NO CHANGE in player eligibility rules.

The program allows two things:

Fill-in Player for Teams with 4 players
1) If your team finds yourself short ONE player, you can email us at ncpa@college-paintball.com and request that, if available, the NCPA provide you with a pick-up player.

Rules:

- You *MUST* have 4 players from your school to sign up as a team and request a pick-up player.
- The NCPA assigns you the player from the pick-up list; you do not get to pick who it is.
- If you request a pick-up player, we may assign your team up to four pick-up players for 8 players total.
- All pick-up players must be given equal play time. That means pick-up players play the same number of games as non-pickup players.
- All players are responsible for an equal share of paint costs on a team basis.
- If we are able to assign you a player, we will refund the portion of your entry fee for the number of pick-up players you receive. For example, if we assign you two players, we would refund 1/3 of your entry fee.
- Your entry fee will be refunded in full if we are unable to provide your team with a pick-up player.


Pick-Up Players

2) If you are a full-time student and would like to play an NCPA event, you can sign up as a pick-up player. Sign-ups are done through APPA; you simply select the pick-up division instead of a team name when registering.

Rules:

- You must be a current full-time student. Eligibility waivers DO NOT APPLY to pick-up players. You must present student identification AND government identification at event check-in.
- You must pay 1/5th of the team entry fee to be placed on a team.
- There is a $5 late fee for payments
- Your share of the entry fee MUST be paid before the event registration deadline for you to be considered for a pick-up team.
- NCPA will pick what team you play for.
- You are responsible for an even share of the paint costs for whichever team you play on, and are expected to pay for your paint prior to play.
- If more than 5 players end up on a team, we will refund a portion of your entry fee, for example, if your team ends up with 6 players, one sixth of your entry fee would be refunded.
- Your entry fee will be refunded in full if we are unable to place you on a team. Players will be placed on a first-paid, first-placed priority.


Pick-Up teams will be made the day prior to the event so you know if you need to travel or not.


Ranking Points:

Teams will earn points based on the number of players from the same school on a team:

4 players: 80% of regular points
3 players: 60% of regular points
2 players: 40% of regular points
1 player: 20% of regular points

For event attendance minimums, pick-up teams WILL count towards the 4-school, 6-team minimum. So if you have 2 regular school teams from two different schools, and 4 pick-up teams, that event will get full points.


National Championships Exception: Teams may NOT use pick-up players at the National Championships.


I think that covers it. LMK if there are any questions.

So I, as a single player from a school with no other players interested, can play an NCPA? Sweet. I'm a little confused on the payments. I understand that as 1/5th of a team I would be expected to pay my share, but would I pay 1/5th of the entry fee on top of the team paying the full price?

Regarding eligibility: Can I simply add myself to the pickup roster without any involvement from my school? Will I be expected to bring some sort of enrollment verification to events?

If we place you on a team that had already paid their entry fee, we would refund them the portion that you paid. If we get a whole team of pickup players, everyone just paid in their share.

You can add yourself to the pickup roster without school involvement, but yes, you need to bring a valid student ID card, valid government issued photo ID, and a current transcript (can be an unofficial transcript).

It's event specific, and there will be a pick-up team listed on APPA. Log in with your player ID and you can run through the process.

so if im reading this correctly, if your school doesnt have a full 5 man team of students from your school, then you will not be able to get full points?

College Paintball is not the same now.

I don't think points should be given at all if you have a pickup player.

Of course it isn't, but we don't feel there will be a significant change, other than giving more students a bridge to getting teams going.

A 20% penalty is a pretty significant penalty for borrowing one player. If you're in the hunt for the top of the rankings, it's going to make the score not count at all.

I think a limit should be set on the number of times you can use the "pick-up player" option throughout the year. I feel this policy will cause clubs to not take recruitment as seriously as they would if this policy weren't in place.
