MANAGER MANUAL - League Registration

RISK MANAGEMENT:

Risk Management is an essential aspect of all soccer programs and is overseen by the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA), by US Club Soccer, and by US Soccer. All coaches, assistant coaches, and managers are required to have Risk Management cards before you create your roster for all our leagues except ECNL. Most tournaments will require a copy of these cards, and league referees may ask to see them. Please ensure that your team is in compliance. There is a $7.50 fee for Risk Management applications through MSYSA. The state no longer issues temporary risk management passes. All applications must be submitted well in advance of tournament or league play so check the expiration dates on your risk management cards.

Please visit the Risk Management section of MSYSA website directly. There are several articles and procedures to print, read, and keep in your notebook about Lightning, Net Safety, etc. To obtain or renew your Risk Management Card you must log in to your Coach/Manager Got Soccer account. If you are new Manager please contact Amy Richters at wolveshawks@aol.com to obtain your Got Soccer log in.

INTERNATIONAL CLEARANCE:

If any of your players are from Canada, or were born outside of the US, the USYSA requires a one time foreign clearance.  If the player has already received clearance in the past, he/she doesn’t have to apply again. Here are the instructions from the Michigan youth soccer website:

First Registration Form (US Citizens born outside the U.S. who have never been registered to play soccer in another Country.)
Entry Prior to 12 Form (Players who have entered the U.S. prior to age 12. Must supply official documentation.)
International Clearance for Minors (Players currently between ages 12 to 17 who are not eligible for one of the proceeding methods must prove that he/she meets one of these two exceptions: (1) The player has moved with his/her parents to the US for reasons other than playing soccer, OR (2) The player and prospective club are both located within 30 miles of an international border. Click here for more information.)

WSSL REGISTRATION:

WSSL Registration instructions were provided in the tryout section. If you have a WSSL question which cannot be answered from their website, please contact Amy (wolveshawks@aol.com). Amy is the WSSL representative for the club. Please do not contact the administrator from WSSL directly, or have any of your team families contact WSSL directly. If you have an issue that Amy can’t answer, Amy will contact WSSL. WSSL is one of the largest leagues in the state. If managers and parents are contacting her directly, you can imagine the overload and therefore the lack of efficiency.

All WSSL scheduling is now done in advance of an official scheduling meeting. Following final divisioning, team representatives will be notified of the division opponents along with contact information. Scheduling should be done by phone or email with the opposing coach. All home games must be confirmed with the club field scheduler, Terri Rentis.

All schedules and game locations are on the WSSL website. Notify your team when the final game schedules are posted. Most maps are available via links on the WSSL website. Final game schedules should be added to the Team Snap calendar.

All league rules and guidelines are posted on the league website. Please familiarize yourself with the club pass card player rules, small sided game formats, minimum and maximum roster sizes, etc. prior to the start of the season.

Teams that play in the Western Suburban Soccer League (WSSL) can access all forms, rules, etc. at www.wsslsoccer.org.
