All players must attend all 3 nights night of players evaluation.

  1. Parents will be notified withing 24 hours of the draft which team they are on.
    1. Those players who "turn down" a D1 offer will be placed into a supplemental draft managed by the Football Advisory Board.
  2. D2 players and those supplemental drafted players will be notified prior to Sunday July 21st of their team.
  3. Players not attending will be placed into the “Supplemental Draft”

 

    1. Supplemental Draft – The draft managed by the football advisory board that will place players to team to ensure parity and equal competition. Players placed in the Supplemental Draft will be those who:

                                                              i.      Do not attend player evaluations, and are not a “Protected Player

                                                             ii.      Those players who turn down D1, even if that player is a “Protected Player”.

For example: Player X’s father was designated to coach on the Sr. Black Knights. Player X was offered a D1 position and refused the opportunity. Player X will be placed into the Supplemental Draft, and his father will have the option to coach on the team Player X is selected to play on.

“Protected Players”

  1. Senior Division Coaches may still designate players as “Protected"
    1. Limited to 2 Coaches children or near relative.
    2. A team may declare 1 non-coaches’ child as "Protected".
    3. If a "Protected " player is offered a D1 position, the expectation is that the player accepts that position. Any "protected player" that has not turned down a D1 offer must be declared to the advisory board by 11:00PM Wednesday July 17th.

                                                         i.      If the player turns the D1 offer down, that player will be placed into the supplemental draft regardless of their status – “Protected” or not.

                                                       ii.      The Advisory Board will place that player and Coach on a team to ensure parity and equality and avoid "team stacking".

 

1.       Team stacking is defined as coaches of teams who create an unfair competitive advantage by placing seasoned players onto a single team with the sole intent and purpose of creating an unfair advantage to win.

 

a.       Coaches should not tell players “Don’t come to evals and I’ll draft you”

b.       Coaches should not tell players “Don’t try your best at evals – so that we can draft you”

If GCKA Youth Football is deemed as stacking a D2 team, we will be removed from the Mini OCC.
