Additional Player Guidlines

  • Players are limited to six years of consecutive participation in NECVL/NCVF events. Year one begins the first year a player’s name appears on a NECVL/NCVF roster OR the first year their name was listed on a “varsity squad list” of any 2-year or 4-year college varsity team.
  • Exceptions may be granted in the case of six years of consecutive eligibility for the NECVL/NCVF events to players that meet certain criteria, AND submit a formal request in writing. Exceptions may be granted for “mandatory” military or religious service. Requests for exceptions should be mailed at least 7 days prior to the first day of NECVL competition.
  • Players must be enrolled for the minimum number of credit hours, at least 45 days prior to the start of the championship event.
  • A professional athlete is one who receives any kind of payment, directly or indirectly, for athletics participation or who has participated with a professional team. A professional athletics team is any organized team that provides any of its players more than actual and necessary expenses for participation on the team and/or declares itself to be professional.
