OASA Intermediate / Masters Rules for 2007

November 19, 2006

Oshawa, ON


Ontario Canada

Some hi-lights from the 84th Annual OASA Convention held Nov 17-19 in Oshawa
Ontario. The following is my interpretation only of any new rules concerning
the Intermediate mens and masters divisions for 2007. Please don't consider
these official until confirmed by the OASA. Some of the items up for
discussion left several people quite confused.


Bylaw 2.5.1 page 67
Topic Masters Players Section 5:1b

ADD: After the first sentence in section B, All pitchers on an ISC Roster
in the current year are not eligible to pitch.

Bylaw 2.5.1 Page 67
Topic: Intermediate Mens Section : New Section

This one was a little confusing especially after an amendment to the motion.

I think the end result is the following .....

All Pitchers on a current ISC  roster are not eligible to play in the OASA
Intermediate Men's Classification unless they are 45 years of age or older
in the current year.

Bylaw 2.6.5 Page 69
Topic: Residency Rule

Non - Resident Canadian Citizens are eligible to play for teams classified
as Senior in OASA Elimination and Provincial events ....
Delete " classified as senior "
Rationale: Players in all Men's Classifications that are non Resident
Canadian Citizens should be able to play in OASA Elimination and Provincial
Tournaments. They will need to follow all the other limitations outlined in
Bylaw 2.6.5


A real strong possibility that the OASA will host a 2007 Canadian
Intermediate Men's Championship in conjunction with Softball Canada. This
tournament will be run as a pilot project with St. Thomas Ontario as the
likely host location. Any out of province teams looking to compete should
visit the OASA web site and contact one of the Executive Committee members :

The 2007 OASA Masters Provincial Championship host has not been officially
confirmed. It is looking like the tournament will be held in Grafton again
in 2007. No other communities have applied to host this tournament. The 2007
tournament will be run as one tournament with 2 separate divisions. Teams
will play 2 qualifying games which will self seed teams in either the A or B
division. The idea is to try to attract more teams who generally don't come
to the OASA Masters tournament because of the high caliber of play. Now the
top teams will play off in the A division with the remaining teams battling
it out in the B division.

Yours in Sport
