Affiliate Rule ( PCAHA Rule C 32)

 

Limitation (PeeWee and above, Atom to PeeWee, and all Female Teams) - A player of a team of a lower division or category may play as an Affiliate Player (as defined in Section C(28)) for a team or teams of higher divisions and categories at any time, to a maximum of ten (10) league and/or playoff games. An Affiliate Player who participates in more than ten (10) games will be deemed to be an ineligible
player. Any violation of this rule shall be reported to the PCAHA Managing Director. However, if the player's registered team completes its regular season and playoffs before the player's affiliated team or teams, the player may thereafter affiliate an unlimited number of times.

Note: Exhibition and/or tournament/jamboree games are excluded from the number of games referred to in Section C(32).

A team of a higher Division or category may not use an affiliated player prior to receiving consent of the team with which the affiliated player is registered.

In Summary

  • Affiliate players are limited to ten (10) games maximum over the course of a season. The purpose of this limitation is to prevent the use of “permanent affiliates”
  • Affiliate players may not play an eleventh game until the player's registered team has completed their season and playoffs.
  • An affiliate player who does participate in more than ten games will be deemed to be an ineligible player.
