I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this... but Adam Cooney is a registered Amateur. With that said, he could be rated 1050 and still play the NAAC as long as he has never accepted cash (which would automatically flip him to Pro status).
The 970 threshold is only for Pros who step back down to Am for one reason or another.
