A complainant must have clear evidence the violation and submit a $200 protest bond. The complete protest procedure is outlined in the Alberta Summer Games Policy and Procedure Manual (See enclosed).
ENTRY AND ZONE PLAYOFF PROCEDURES:
Zone teams will be created by holding tryout camps in each zone. These camps must run for a minimum of 4 practices over one weekend to a maximum of 8 practices over two weekends (or the equivalent stretched over one weekend to the next weekend). The tryouts must take place from May 1 though May 31 of the competition year (unless specially requested otherwise). Payment of the $95.00 fee to Football Alberta must be received prior to the first tryout practice.
Final rosters are due along with the fee charged to the players making each zone team to the Football Alberta office by June 15th of the competition year or earlier if designated by the ASRPWF.
Zone teams will be allowed 30 hours of their choosing in which to operate their Training Camps to prepare for the ASG with a maximum of no more than two on-field practices per day. The selected hours and days must be approved by the Provincial Sport Advisor.
Zone Teams may not scrimmage against outside competition at any time throughout the selection process or training camp. That is the rational for the 35 person roster. Should injuries or withdrawels occur other players may not replace final roster players unless done so prior to the submission of the final roster. Final roster on June 15th means final.
