PLAYER REGISTRATION FORMS:

-        All NEW players for the spring season must fill out a Player Registration Form which can be found under the Rules and Forms tab of MSPSP website. All information on the form must be completed.  This includes the player’s name, address, date of birth, phone number, and signatures of the player, parent/guardian, coach, and affiliating league. 

-        Players who participated in the Fall season do NOT need to submit a new player contract.

-        Once the Player Registration Form is completed (after the MSYSA tryout deadline) the player is officially committed to the team for the entire seasonal year (fall and spring).

-        The box must be checked indicating the player has paid their individual registration fees and the box indicating the player has not signed with another MSYSA team (exception for dual registration).

-        MSPSP is no longer requiring proof of birth; it is the responsibility of the affiliating league to verify birth documents and to collect the required player/parent concussion form.


TEAM ROSTER: (see GotSoccer Instruction to print rosters)

-        No player can play up more than two age divisions except in the U19 division, where MSPSP designates Classic 1 & 2 as age-diverse divisions to accommodate ‘High School Open’ style-play (see below).

-        All MSPSP teams must have a minimum of 15 players and a maximum of 22 players. This does not apply for the U15 Supplemental Division.

-        The Player Registration Forms must be placed in the same order as listed on the Team Roster in the registration envelope (collected from the MSPSP office). The information on the Team Roster must be the same as the information included on the Player Registration Form (DOB, name, address, etc).

-       Each team can have a maximum of four team coaches, plus a team manager. Additional coaches will require a $25 fee. This has been increased to allow more flexibility and availability for reschedules.

-       U19 HIGH SCHOOL OPEN’: MSPSP will offer high school open style play for players U15-U19 in the lowest division of U19 (typically Classic 2). No player can play down in age groups. Teams should request ‘lowest division’ and make note that the team is made up of high-school age diverse players. Teams will not be placed in the ‘High School Open’ division UNLESS they state they are seeking ‘High School Open’ and request the lowest division.


COACHES:

All head coaches of teams playing in NLC Qualifying, Premier 1, Premier 2, and Premier 3 shall be required to have a minimum “D” license (state or national), NSCAA National Diploma, or equivalent international licenses from UEFA or other bodies of coaching education (if international license, to be reviewed by MSYSA Coaching Education).
