RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS – Players with four or five years of service are considered to be Restricted Free Agents.

If the player signs a contract offer with another team, the player’s prior team has four days from the date it receives the offer to determine whether it wishes to match. If the offer is matched, the player will remain with her team. If the offer is not matched within the four-day period, the player will be under contract with the offering team.
