Central Ohio APA League has written Local By-Laws for its players.  These Local By-Laws are unique to the Central Ohio APA League and supercede the Official Team Manual rules.  These By-Laws must always remain with the Official Team Manual and captains should always have them available during match play to avoid any conflicts during nightly play.
