Players may only be on TWO teams per regular season.

Playoff Rules: If a player is on two teams during playoffs, they must choose ONLY ONE team for the duration of the playoffs.

However, if a player is on a lower and upper level team during playoffs, they may play on both (players are not allowed to be on two teams in the same division during playoffs).

During playoffs, each lower level team is only allowed 3 players (8 man only) or 1 player (5 man only) who participated in the upper level of play during regular season on their roster.

For 5 man divisions only, each lower-level team is only allowed 1 player who participated in the upper level of play during the regular season on their roster.
