Age Groups:
No player shall play in an age group more than one age group above their age group (in SASHOC Age-group Policy), eg. u14 player may not play in u/16 side if there is an u/15 side.  If there is only an u/16 side, it is allowed.  Small schools with only ONE mixed team may have players of u/14 to u/18 in their teams.

Home schoolers:
SASHOC indicated that we allow home schoolers in our teams, with consent from the parents.  Our constitution states that players must be enrolled in the school.  Schools that wish to use a home schooler must apply in writing and the executive will approve.  Headmasters & parents agree on who is responsible.

Primary school players:
A player must be enrolled in a school to play for that school.  Where schools are combined (Secondary and Primary in one school), u/14 players may play for the u/14 team or the Primary First team but not both!
