The skip emeritus is a voluntary status (approved by the event chair/committee) taken up by experienced curlers (5 years or greater) with the goal of stepping aside to allow for developing curlers to adopt a leadership role within the league. Skip emeriti no longer act as team captains  for the purpose of the draft and will continue fulfilling a teaching role in a non-skip position. 

Skip emeriti are not to be rated. The status is not permanent and if an emeritus chooses to rescind their status for the following session they will rejoin the league as an unrated player would. Like any other club member, skip emeriti would have to be selected and approved by the chair/committee to once again become a team captain for the draft .
