The following policy was instituted for the 2022-2023 competition season in order to ensure fair and equitable access to events for teams on event waitlists.
- During Standard Registration: if the event is full, only teams that have registered for two or fewer events are eligible to be swapped from that organization.
- REC Foundation staff will have the ability to manually override this policy if a certain situation warrants an exception, but it would not be the expectation that teams would be allowed to swap if they are ineligible. Therefore, these exceptions would be rare.
- Team swapping is not allowed or possible for Event Region Championships and the World Championship.
- New for the 2023-2024 Season:
- Team swapping is not allowed within 2 weeks of an event.
