House/All Star Policy regarding Precedence
TORL Constitution (Article 2.10) states: Purpose: To encourage both recreational House League and All-Star competition.
TORL policy (Article 9.01) states:
Local Association participation is to take precedence over All-Star teams for players playing on both Association and All-Star teams. TORL and the All-Star teams will make every attempt to provide scheduling of games, practices and tournaments in order avoid conflict with league games and practices. The All-Star program will be permitted to apply to the League for exempt dates when preparing teams for Playdowns or Tournaments.
The following “Flow Chart” will be used as a guide to Precedence:

SCHEDULED LEAGUE GAME
This still leaves the possibility for conflict with both the House and All-Star tem scheduled for the same level of event, e.g. practices. The only solution to this situation is to identify the conflict with as much advance notice as possible and then reach a compromise through dialogue.
It is understood that the commitment level with the All-Star program may be much more intense than that of the House League. Recognition of this fact should be considered when conflicts do arise.
