Roster Approval Process for Nationals:

Beginning December 1, captains planning on attending nationals may submit their planned rosters to the head of their gender's ratings committee for approval.

Any players whose ratings change after a roster is approved will not affect the team's eligibility to play in Nationals at the approved level. 

This approval will only apply to nationals and not to other Yankee tournaments including regionals.  

Any subsequent replacements or additions the roster will require resubmission.

If a proposed roster includes players with unknown ratings or players who have not played in many tournaments the committee may choose to defer approval until the players have been observed more and their ratings verified.  If the roster includes players that the committee anticipates uprating prior to Nationals the roster will not be approved if the rating changes put the team over the mappings limit.
