Before you start you should know...
Club Registration links are sent out to every club two months prior to the start of the new seasonal year.
Clubs must be registered in the MSYSA online system before teams are able to register.
If your club is not available to register for you will need to contact your club representative.
Once a team’s club has registered, all adults rostered on the team must complete the Adult Registration step.
As a part of their club’s agreement to affiliate with the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association, all adults must complete this step annually to become eligible to become a listed adult on an MSYSA roster.
As well as registering in the MSYSA system as an Adult Registrant, all adults listed on a roster must have current background checks completed through their club. It is the club’s responsibility to input those results into the MSYSA system. Adults who do not have an approved background check will be unable to submit for approval to the registrar.
One last requirement of Adult Officials is that the Head Coach provide proof of a USSF E License (or equivalent) or higher. Teams who are unable to provide proof of an acceptable coaching license will be unable to submit for approval to the registrar. Check out our "Adult Registration" page for more information.
After all adults have completed the adult registration process, the team’s Primary Team Contact (PTC – whoever is responsible for making changes to the team’s roster in the online system) will need to complete the Team Registration step. *If using a Mac, please note that only Mozilla Firefox is compatible with the Youth leagues system.
Team PTCs will be unable to roster any adult who has not successfully completed their Adult Registration.
The Team Registration step asks for information such as: Team Name, Colors, and Rostered Adults – all of which can be edited. It also asks for the team’s Age Group and League – this information effects the team’s ID. If they are answered incorrectly it could result in the team having to redo their US Youth member cards. Check out our "Team Registration" page for more information.
When teams are ready to submit for approval and go to their registrar they will need to make sure the system matches what information their paperwork provides (i.e. player names and DOB must be EXACT to what is on birth certificate).
