Re: Roster inconsistencies in teams
The position of the NHFCS is that all athletes must be declared by full name, year of high school, and correct jersey number. If a team does not provide this info to the opponent's leadership in prompt response to a demand, then the NHFCS will likely turn the matter over to all teams who play against the football team, the organization's board, and the other oversight agencies in homeschool sports and those of the state where the team plays.
If a team does not make a full accounting for showing up at game time with undeclared players, or either omitting or misprinting player data, the NHFCS would find them to be out of compliance with the NHFCS requirements and declared ineligible in the 2014 season.
The NHFCS does not want to see one homeschool team ruin the reputation of the other teams who presently play public & private member schools. In short, it is unacceptable for any homeschool not to be accountable to the teams they play against.
To all teams who have a game against another homeschool team:
You have a right to expect your opponents to be accountable to you regarding incomplete or inconsistent data. If you have other clear evidence of an eligibility infraction, we will act on that as well. But because you have standing as an opposing team, your request for a full accounting will be upheld as a valid requirement that they must satisfy.
We hope there is a good reason for any roster inconsistency, but we are ready to act in whatever manner is required.
