Number Clash Policy
Where a team is formed and existing players have a number clash. Parents need to arrange for a singlet swap to an alternative number for one of the affected players by either;
• a mutual exchange (your child may have a sibling or may know someone else in the club who is willing to swap for the season)
• if the player has recently purchased a new singlet which hasn’t been worn then the parent can arrange a swap with Fiddes for a new number
Where none of the above can be facilitated, the player who has been with the club for the least amount of seasons will need to purchase a new singlet with a non-conflicting number.
Where there is a dispute as to who retains the duplicate number – a simple countback will occur. The player who has played the most seasons with Banyule Hawks will have the right to retain the number.
