Frequently Asked Questions
1. I am a new club registrar. How do I go about registering my club/team?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Read our REGISTRATION PAGE. Read through the database instructions carefully. Ultimately you need to send us the fee submission sheet, your roster and your registration fees. If, after reading the registration page, you still have questions, you may contact Rachel Woo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Where can I get a Massachusetts Youth Soccer registration packet?
The registration packet is not published on paper. All the current registration procedures are on the Mass Youth Soccer Website.
3. How can I obtain more blank Player Pass Cards and Membership Forms?
The Massachusetts Youth Soccer office will send you these materials free of charge. Simply fill out the online form found on the registration page. You may also use the link here.
4. We live near the border of the state, and a team outside of Massachusetts is more convenient for me and my child. What do I need to do to roster my child on that team?
In recognizing that youth soccer players today are often presented with opportunities to play with teams that are based outside of the state, Massachusetts Youth Soccer has eased its policy concerning out of state registration. If a player who resides in Massachusetts wants to play on a team that is based outside Massachusetts, he or she no longer needs to obtain a Release to Play Out of State from Massachusetts Youth Soccer. This is a change in policy effective immediately. A player who chooses to play outside Massachusetts must still, however, register with the state youth soccer association of the state in which they choose to play.
If a player who is NOT a Massachusetts resident wishes to play on a team that is based in Massachusetts or that plays in a Massachusetts-based league, he or she will need to obtain permission to play in Massachusetts from his or her home state youth soccer association before registering with the team based in Massachusetts. The player must also properly register with Massachusetts Youth Soccer through their Massachusetts-based team or club.
5. My young child is interested in playing town/club soccer. How do I find a team and then roster him/her on that team?
Your first step is to go to our Leagues page to find your town of residence. It will be evident whether that team has its own web page or not. If it does, use that web page to find contact information for that team. If it does not, feel free to contact the League president, whose telephone number and email address are listed just below the league's name. You may also want to look at the League's web page. Generally town/club soccer begins at the U6 age group.
6. How do I find out what my child's proper “age group” is?
For a current Age Group listing, CLICK HERE. Please note that town and club soccer age groups run from August 1st of every year. The Olympic Development Program is the only program in Massachusetts that classifies age groups by calendar years.
7. The owner of the fields where my team practices tells me he needs proof that my team is insured. How do I get that proof?
You will need to fill out a Certificate of Insurance Request Form, found in the “Forms” section of our website. Please note that we will only be able to issue a Certificate of Insurance if your club/team is currently registered with Massachusetts Youth Soccer.
8. Can you tell me if my child is registered with Massachusetts Youth Soccer?
Yes we can! If you have any doubt, please contact Rachel Woo at the Massachusetts Youth Soccer office. Rachel's email address is email@example.com. If your child is playing youth soccer on a town or club team in the state of Massachusetts he/she needs to be registered with Massachusetts Youth Soccer. If a player is not registered, that player is not insured!
