Not to add fuel to the fire, more something to chew on...from the NCRHA LOM...I don't believe players in PIHA, AIHL, Narch and Torhs would be effected by this rule because the NCRHA does not considered these true "paid to play" league.

i. The NCRHA does not discriminate against gender and is an equal-opportunity organization that permits coed participation.

a) In the context of this rule, pay shall be defined as receiving compensation (monetary or otherwise) in excess of the sum total of the cost of uniform, equipment and travel/practice/game expenses.
b) In the event of a challenge upon eligibility under this rule, players who have participated in professional or semi-professional roller hockey leagues must submit documentation indicating that pay was not received by said player.
