As NVC’s time-honored eligibility Golden Rule could prevent players from being successful in the AVP America Grand Prix competition, the following exception is an option for all players. After winning two tournaments in a given division in the same summer, he/she may opt to remain in that division for the remainder of the summer in an attempt to compete for Grand Prix prize money. If a player chooses this option, he/she will then not be allowed to play in that same division or a lower division for the next 3 NVC tournaments he/she competes in beginning the following summer.
