Unless otherwise notified at email@example.com, a player entered in two divisions will be placed in the older age division should the player qualify for both divisions. If a player is entered in two age divisions and is selected into the older division, that player shall not be eligible for selection into the younger division and will be removed from the alternates list. If a player is not selected for the older division, that player is eligible for selection in the younger division and is eligible to be an alternate in the younger division but not the older division. If the player does not qualify for either division, the player will be placed on the alternates list of the younger age division and removed from the alternates list of the older age division as players can only be on the alternates list for one division.
