The player can prove he or she was not present in the city.
The player can prove that he or she was injured at the tryout time.

Team Selection Criteria

The Club Pro uses the following criteria:
Previous results in Intercounty and club tournaments, if applicable
Attendance at pre-season try-outs
Discretion of Club Pro
Team Composition
Each of the Davisville Mixed Intercounty Teams will consist of 12 men and 6 women (AGM Motion 2010)

Meetings
There will be one meeting held prior to Intercounty Tryouts. This meeting will include the Club Pro(s), the Teams and Tournaments Director, and anyone else that both the Club Pro and Teams and Tournament Director agree on inviting.
There will be a meeting held after each Intercounty Tryout round. These meetings will include the Club Pro, the Teams and Tournaments Director, the Teams and Tournament Chair (if available), and anyone else that both the Club Pro and Teams and Tournament Director agree on inviting.
There will be a meeting held after the final Intercounty Tryout round in each division of play. This meeting is held to determine the players that will be selected for a particular Intercounty Team. The meeting will include the Club Pro, the Teams and Tournaments Director, the Teams and Tournament Chair (if available), and anyone else that both the Club Pro and Teams and Tournament Director agree on inviting.
Informing Players
If the Club Pro(s) chooses to have certain players called back on “if necessary” or other unspecified days, the Teams and Tournaments Director, or any individual assigned by the Teams and Tournaments Director, will inform these individuals by phone. These individuals will be informed at least 12 hours prior to the new tryout date. If a called back player is unable to attend the new tryout date set by the Club Pro(s), the call backed player’s record over the prior tryouts that season will be used. It is highly recommended that a called back player attend a tryout session that the Club Pro(s) arrange.

Those who choose to run for the position will be reported to the League Team he/she chooses to run for.
The League Team decides whom to elect as their captain. (Elected based on which player has the most votes. If more than one person has the same amount of votes there will be either a re-election, if more than 2 people, or a double team captaincy.) AGM Motion 2006
