REGISTRATION ISSUES:
 
AYSA would like to remind all Clubs and families of the following important information regarding insurance coverage:
 
1. If you are a Club who has picked-up players during tryouts, and those players have not been registered with AYSA during the current season, you need to register them if they are currently playing or practicing/training with your team so they are insured.  Any new administrators should also be registered immediately so they both have medical and liability coverage.
 
2. Parents - If your child has not completed club registration for the seasonal year, he/she is NOT insured through AYSA insurance.  It is possible that your club has insured your player through US Club Soccer.  It is up to you to verify this information and contact them for any insurance issues.

http://www.ussoccer.com/about/federation-services/intl-clearance


PROOF OF AGE:
Club Registrars are required to verify each player's age and a copy of the player's proof of age must be available to the State Registrar upon request. The following is a list of acceptable "Proof of Age" documents:
  • Board of Health Records 
  • Passport (current or expired) 
  • Birth certificate (must be a certified copy) 
  • Driver's License (not valid for State Championship play) 
  • Alien Registration Card (issued by the U.S. Government) 
  • Birth Registration issued by an appropriate governmental agency 
  • Certificate issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service attesting to age 
  • Certificate of an American Citizen born abroad issued by the governing agency 

Note: Hospital, Baptismal or Religious Certificates are not acceptable as Proof of Age.  Documents in foreign languages must have an English translation attached to the original document (the translation is required for tournament play).

INITIAL REGISTRATION:
Passes must have a current photo and must be laminated. Player passes do not need to be signed.  A player is considered rostered: when placed on a team and that team is registered with the appropriate league. Once a player has been registered and rostered, any movement between clubs is considered a transfer.  Players coming from another State Association during the seasonal year must complete the Interstate Clearance Form prior to registering to a team within AYSA.  

PLAYER PASSES: 
Players and coaches must present their passes to game or tournament officials prior to the start of each game. All passes, both for players and Coaches/Team Officials, must include a current picture and the pass must be laminated. Up to three (3) Assistant Coach passes are provided free to each team. Warning: Unregisted Players, If an unregistered player is allowed to participate in any AYSA sanctioned event; the offending parties will be referred to the appropriate committee. This is a serious offense and could lead to suspension from AYSA activities. Any coach who is found to have played a player who is over-age and/or illegally registered shall, at a minimum, be suspended for the remainder of the seasonal year in which the player is found to have played and the following seasonal year. In addition, the team shall forfeit any game(s) in which that player has taken part (AYSA Bylaw 803- False Registration).

Players who transfer from one club to another club after November 1st will be ineligible for participation in both Arizona Presidents Cup including Regionals and Nationals & the National Championship series (known as Arizona State Cup, Far West Regionals and US Youth Soccer Nationals) for that seasonal year.  A transfer is defined as the process by which a player changes club affiliation, moving from one club and re-registering to a team within a different club within the same seasonal year.

PLAYER RELEASE:

The player has moved beyond a reasonable travel distance; the determination of 'reasonable travel distance' is subject to definition by the AYSA. The player is injured in such a manner that the player will not be able to participate for the remainder of the season. Please remember, a parent always has the right to request his/her child be released from a team.

PLAYER LOANS: 
The Member Loan Form (available on the "AYSA Forms" section of the MEMBER ADMIN tab) must be completed in its entirety with each of the appropriate designated team official signatures. State official signatures are not required.  Loan Forms must be held as proof of adherence to the AYSA 5171 Policy.
