I forgot where I posted that you were supposed to play at the higher NTRP of where you expected to be at the end of a season. Anyway, I was helping a student self-rate, and the form stated:

"Players who are good athletes or intend to spend a great deal of time taking lessons and practicing should be aware that their improvement may be significant enough to surpass their original self-rating by the time they reach the end of the local league season or championship level. To avoid disqualification, these players should enter at a higher level of play at the beginning of the local league season."

Unfortunately, this paragraph is usually often skipped because there's so many words on the page.
