MEN’S RULES & POLICIES
The JOPC met in Indianapolis September 9 and 10. Based on decisions and clarifications made at this meeting, the Men’s Rules & Policies have been updated on our website. Please review this as we head into the competitive season, especially as it pertains to the new age groups and post-high school athlete participation.
NEW COLLEGIATE CHAMPIONSHIPS WEBSITE
We have a new website dedicated to the Men’s Collegiate Championships and the schools that participate. The website is: http://www.usagymcollegiatechamps.com/. The portal to this page can be found at the bottom of the Men’s Program website.
Although the Collegiate Championships is a dormant event, the intent on creating it was to:
- Highlight the colleges and clubs that participate
- Provide news as it becomes available
- Provide photos of the Championship event
- Announce the upcoming date and location of the event
- Provide additional information to parents who are researching collegiate possibilities for their son. Please ask your coaches to share this with their athletes and parents.
