Emergency List

Players on the emergency list are not required to register at this stage. Should spots become available in teams due to positions not being taken or player movement, then players on the Emergency list may be offered an opportunity. Note: the order of the Emergency list does not determine priority, positions that arise and team balance are the deciding factors.
