Participation of Seniors on Junior Varsity Teams

  1. Seniors (12th graders or students who are playing their last season due to age) may compete on a member school’s junior varsity team(s).
  2. Seniors (12th graders or students who are playing their last season due to age) may participate on the high school’s sub-varsity teams only if their participation is required in order for the school to field a sub-varsity team.
  3. The purpose for playing a junior varsity (JV) schedule is to allow younger, inexperienced players the opportunity to participate and gain game condition experience. In some cases, unless one or more senior is allowed to play on the JV, the school might not have enough players to field a JV team, therefore depriving the younger players an opportunity to play.  Member schools should be very careful that seniors playing on the JV are not taking playing time from younger players nor should seniors be included on the JV in order to make the team stronger.
  4. It should be made clear to the opponent prior to the contest if seniors are participating on the sub-varsity team.
