  • Percentage of residents (not the number of residents on the original roster).  Example: 15 players on a roster and 15 are residents: the team has 100% residence, 18 players on a roster and 15 are residents; the team has 83.3% residency.
  • Returning team vs. New team.  (To be classified as a returning team, a roster must include names of at least 10 players from a former roster that participated in either the Spring, Summer or Winter Season of the year past).
  • New teams composed of new and returning players (regardless of previous team played for during Spring, Summer or Winter Season of the year past).
  • New teams composed of all new members.
