  • If a probationary club exceeds the allowable number of ejections and minor offenses for a second consecutive season, the club will be required to pay a $1,500 bond to League. Failure to pay such bond will result in the club not being allowed to register teams for the upcoming season.
  • If a probationary club exceeds the allowable number of ejections and minor offenses for a third consecutive season, the club will be removed as a member of the League for the following season, and the League will keep the bond.
