For the 2018 season playing out rights will be granted to the top placed U14 Team (both genders) based on the NSL U14 2017 standings.  

All Teams that were granted playing out rights to the MJ League for the 2017 season will be granted playing out rights for 2018 Season.

All teams U16 and above will be granted playing out rights to MJ League. NSL will offer these divisions locally if they have enough teams to be viable.

2017/2018 Winter (Indoor) Season

All club teams in the Niagara District will be granted playing out rights to OSA sanctioned indoor leagues at the Players Paradise facility in Stoney Creek, for the 2017/2018 Winter season.

Important Note:

It should be understood that the playing out rights concept will be reviewed annually and will be at the boards discretion. Clubs should not assume that the same concept will apply to future seasons beyond 2018.

It is the recommendation of this Board that any change to Playing Out rules be conveyed to the clubs by prior to the start of the 2018 season.
