Q What does a player require when coming from another State or outside of Eastern New York to our league?
A They must turn in their pass to their old league and acquire a Permission to Play out of State form (different states have different forms), approved by their former league and approved by ENYYSA, (available on enysoccer.com under “forms”). This applies to any out of state guest player releases as well. If they are transferring during the soccer year, then a transfer form is also required.
Q What is the procedure when a player gets injured at a practice or a game?
A. If at any time a player is seriously injured, regardless of intended use of the secondary insurance, an Advance Notification of Injury Form (available online at www.wyslsoccer.org under “Forms”) should be filled out and sent to league office, who stamps and forwards to the State. The State then sends an Insurance Claims Form to the parents of the injured player to fill out and return.
Q Who is eligible for a tournament pass and what is required?
A Tournament player passes are for unregistered players who want to play with a registered team. They must provide a birth certificate, written registration form, picture, and $25. They do not register online since they are not to be on a roster.
If a player is already registered to a team and wants to play in a tournament with another registered team, they must fax to League office (914 235-5110) a guest player release/practice form, filled out completely and signed by both coaches (coach of record and borrowing coach.)
Q What’s the procedure for deleting a player?
A The League no longer requires a special form – just notify your club registrar and return the player pass. The club register will delete the player online and re-submit the team to the league electronically to ensure an updated roster.
Q What do I do if a player/coach in my club gets a red card?
A The team coach/manager or registrar calls the league office and inquires when the card will be released (dependent on how many games suspended) and makes arrangements to pick it up. Issuance of a red card results in a minimum of a one-game suspension (and sometimes more than one game, depending on offense.) In addition, coaches who are red carded must pay a $100 fine to receive their pass back.
Q Do we need to get a new pass for a player who changes teams?
A Yes. Any time a player changes teams, whether it’s inside or outside of his club, they need a new pass (and new picture). A player pass has the team name on it, so if the team name changes, a new pass must be created.
Q What are the rules regarding transfers, both inside and outside the club?
A During the season:
If a player wants to transfer to another within his club, it is still a transfer and the registrar must delete the player online and bring to the office a new picture, completed transfer form, and old pass. There will be no waiting time or fee levied.
If a player wants to transfer to another club within WYSL, then the old club registrar must delete that player and the registrar of the new club must supply to the league a completed transfer form, the old player pass, a new picture, and $50 (paid by receiving club.) That player must then wait 30 days before playing with the new team.
Out of season:
If a player is registered and transfers between seasons to another club or league, a $50 fee is imposed but the 30 day waiting period is waived.
Note: If a team plays in the fall and then folds over the winter, and a player from that team wants to play on another team, they are considered a transfer even though that original team is no more.
Q How many passes may a player or coach have?
A A player or coach is allowed only one pass. For example, whenever a player gets a new pass, their old pass must be turned in. If it is in the club’s retired player’s drawer, it must be found by club registrar and handed to League Registrar. If a coach receives a temporary pass, then takes the required courses, he must turn in his temporary pass (along with new pic/sig), before he receives his valid pass.
