Regrading within Junior ranks (specifically hurling)

Can anyone advise or confirm what the position is regards regrading from the following:

Players plays in Junior B in 2016

He is not regraded.

Can he now play Junior E in 2017 ??

I know you have to be regraded from Senior to Inter - Inter to Junior but does the rule still apply within Junior as a whole ?


Yeh he has to be regraded if he wants to play championship at a lower level than the previous year. i.e junior b to junior e

Regrades need to be done very early in the year, January if memory serves me.

Player needs to regrade if he played at a higher level before, not just the previous year.

Example if he played Junior B 5 years ago and comes back now to play Junior E he still has to regrade.
