NJP Policies and Procedures
Play up Policy
The NJP play up policy is used to define the procedure for players "playing up". The policy is as follows:
Any player that has requested to "play up" will be evaluated by the Tryout Committee under the supervision of the Hockey Director and the BOD during the tryout sessions. If a player is deemed qualified to compete for a spot on the older/higher level team, they will be invited by the Organization to participate in the subsequent tryout sessions for the older/higher level team. From that point, players will be rostered on the team that the Organization deems best for the individual player's development. Any player "playing up" will only be evaluated for the highest level team within any age division.
Nashville Geographical Area
The NJP policy to define the geographical area for the program is as follows.
In order to be eligible to participate as part of the NJP, a player must reside within the Middle Tennessee area (defined by a 100 mile radius around Nashville). Residence is defined by a family having proof of the child being enrolled in a school in the defined area and a utility bill for their residence.
The Nashville Jr. Predators participation policy requires all players on NJP rosters to only participate in NJP team activities during the season in question (August- April 1 for non- National bound teams and mid April for National bound teams). This policy prohibits players on NJP rosters from participating in other travel organizations team activities during the season.
Team Tryout Policy
With respect to all Nashville Jr. Predators team tryouts, all interested players are required to attend all posted tryout sessions. Decisions regarding players that are unable to attend posted tryout sessions will be made on a case by case basis, with a preference held for players attending in person.
