Official USBOXLA game play
'A' LEVEL - The high caliber of play at the USBOXLA Nationals must be protected by having equally aged participants. There are no over-aged players allowed in the 'A' level.
'B' | 'C' LEVEL - We understand that some players may be smaller in size, female (playing on a “male” team), or teams may need to simply fill a roster and take an older player(s). Teams may have a maximum of 2 players who are over-aged. PLEASE IDENTIFY ANY OVER-AGED PLAYERS ON YOUR ROSTER WITH THE WORD ‘AGE’ AFTER THEIR LAST NAME ON ROSTER SHEET. Not having this listed on your roster will result in an automatic disqualification. “Impact” players playing in a lower aged division (“Impact” player is determined by USBOXLA Rules Committee) will result in an automatic disqualification. Each team may only have a maximum of 2 overaged players on its roster.
Your team rosters cannot change after Thursday Aug 5th. If you have players playing in 2 age divisions, or skill levels to round out numbers that is fine as long as these players are listed on the team's official roster that you submit before the event. You cannot alter your rosters for medal games, recruit other team's players at the event or bring more players from one skill bracket to another for 'big games'. If there is any infraction of this rule it will result in an automatic disqualification. Before each game the scorekeepers will check to ensure accurate rosters.
Seeding from pool play is determined in this order:
There are on-site USBOXLA Game play coordinators at each facility. If you have questions or concerns they will help. Please note that there is no appeal process to protest a call or outcome, there is zero tolerance and abuse could result in team disqualification or additional penalties for your team or organization.
