7 Residency Waiver for Select Player Eligibility • MAYLA's Position on Residency Waivers:• Players who reside within high school districts having a Select Lacrosse Team are to play for that Select Program. Players who do not have a Select Program in their HS district are allowed to play for any Select Team and MAYLA requires an informal waiver to document those cases so that the league is made aware, prior to the start of the season, that a particular team has an out of district player(s).• MAYLA will also entertain waiver requests from parents of Players who reside within high school districts with a Select Lacrosse team but want to play for another Select Program. These waivers are carefully reviewed by MAYLA's respective Boys or Girls Rules & Competition Committee and the process is overseen by the MAYLA Executive Director. After the waiver request has been received by MAYLA, the head coach of each affected program will be consulted and if there is consent from each head coach, then the approval of the waiver would be looked upon favorably. If the coaches of both programs do not consent, then the leadership of the dissenting program would be consulted to ensure that the disagreement is just. If there is not agreement between the two programs regarding a particular out of district player, the waiver would not likely be approved. Of course there are always extenuating circumstances but these would be considered rare and unique and would be reviewed on a case by case basis.
