(2) the statement be (A) retained by the club or league with which the player is registered, or (B) filed with the State Association.

(c) The failure of a player to obtain the clearance or statement provided for by this rule does not affect the player’s eligibility in regard to any USYSA program or activity, or any program or activity of a member of USYSA.
