Picture & Player Passes Required For All U11 through U19 Teams
A player pass is basically a USYS legal form of ID to play in games showing the name, date of birth and a picture of the player. Player passes are the USYS and state approved way to show proof of age and the identity of the player on the official team roster. Player passes are created administratively through the club the player is registered through or their state association.
Every player in the U11 through U19 age group must have a picture uploaded into their GotSoccer Player Account at least 2 weeks prior to the first game of the season. This allows the club to print out a legal player pass and give to the coach of the team. If a player does not have a picture on the player pass, it is NOT a legal pass and the player will not be allowed to play.
