Certifying teams, coaches and players is a time-consuming and complex task. In order to make this process as efficient as possible, each team's credentials must be presented in a manner that is organized and systematic. No team's credentials will be examined unless they are organized according to the following guidelines:
I. All materials must be in a three-ring binder.
II. It is suggested that each item be placed inside a sheet protector. Optional - if sheet protectors are used all documents must be able to be viewed without removing -- maximum of two 1-sided documents placed back to back, or one 2-sided document per sheet protector.
III. Each section of the notebook shall be identified by a divider tab with the title of the section displayed.
IV. Information will be presented in the following order:
A. Team Information (in order of presentation)
B. Coach Information (in order of presentation for each rostered individual)
C. Manager Information (in order of presentation for each rostered individual)
D. Player Information (in order of presentation for each rostered individual)
E. Sanctioned game sheets
