Athlete Eligibility Policy
All Competitors must be under 19, 17, 15, or 13 years of age as of the final day of the Canadian Junior Open, as applicable for the category they have entered.

All competitors in the Canadian Junior Open must be members in good standing of their respective Provincial/Territorial Squash Association and Squash Canada, or the National Association of their residence.

Notwithstanding a competitor may be a member in good standing with their respective Provincial/Territorial Squash Association and Squash Canada, or the National Association of their residence, where a competitor is subject to a sanction imposed by the Host Club, Squash Canada shall respect that sanction, including any sanction which may preclude the person from entering the premises and thus participating in the Championships provided the sanction was imposed using fair procedures. Specifically, the sanctioned person must have been informed by the Host Club of the nature of the infraction and have been given the opportunity to provide information concerning the incident prior to the sanction being imposed.

Canadian Rankings Policy regarding Withdrawals and Defaults

DEFAULTS:  During the Event or once the draws are public
Any player who defaults from a match or fails to show up for a match once the tournament draws are made posted/public will lose points to their opponent.  The player who defaults from a match or fails to show for a match will automatically lose 12 points in the rankings.  Their opponent will gain 12 points for the default or no show (or the appropriate head to head points and only if a replacement match is not played.). 

NOTE: Once draws are posted/public, there is no appeal for the first defaulted match and the loss of points will be automatic and cannot be given back regardless of a doctor’s note. No further points will be lost for the rest of the defaults.

Once a player defaults a match the player may continue in the next round of the tournament based the following guidelines:

1.   A player is temporarily injured, cannot play a certain match so self-defaults, but is able to compete the next match/day.

2.   A player is temporarily sick, cannot play a certain match so self-defaults, but is able to compete the next match/day.

3.   A player is defaulted by the referee due to illness, cramp or other.

If a player is defaulted from a match by the referee because of behavior issues the player may not continue in the tournament.

WITHDRAWALS: Prior to the event and before the draws are made public
A player can withdraw from a tournament prior to the draw being made public without the loss of ranking points and there is no need for a doctor’s note.

For the Canadian Junior Open, Squash Canada reserves the right to refuse future entries in cases where a pattern of defaults and/or withdrawals are evidenced.
