Players not selected to either division will remain on the alternate lists for both divisions, but will be obligated to play the division they first get into from the alternates list. They would then be removed from the alternates list in the other division. Once a player is selected for any one division, no changes can be made.
Alternates may only switch divisions if there is an OPENING in they draw they want to switch into.
