It's about that time when the rookies get involved. Teams are close to signing their minimum quota, and once that is sorted, we move on to the rookie signings.
This will take place with a basic draft system.
The draft order:
This order is determined by the combined finish of clubs over the past two seasons.
I don't think I need to explain how a draft system works, but I will anyway.
1. The first club has first option on the rookie player pool. The club may discuss terms with the player and post a contract offer in the official thread. The player must then confirm the signing in the official thread. Players have the right to reject contract offers with any club, ensuring that he remains available to be signed by another team later in the draft.
2. The second club has first option on the remaining players.
Note that all rookies are free signings, so they do not factor into salary cap considerations.
Clubs may start talking to rookies, but no contract offers may be made until the CWBCC commences the draft. The draft will commence soon after the 15-player quotas are met.
