All clubs should be setting up yearly Registration programs in their club accounts. If you do not know how to do this, please refer to the Got Soccer Club Extended Manual for new Got Soccer instructions on setting up your teams and placing players on your teams. You can also call Soccer Maine for assistance at 207-239-7834.
When registering your players, please make sure that all necessary information is in the player registration – legal name, birthdate, address, phone number, and email address. Missing information will hold up the issuance of rosters.
Additionally, all coaches, assistant coaches and team managers must be registered with full information and must complete a background check in order to be added to a roster. Background checks take 24-72 hours. This can also hold up the issuance of rosters.
All Player Registration and Risk Management links are now through the registration database.
INTERNATIONAL CLEARANCE – Players born outside the U.S.
FIFA requires all players over the age of 12, regardless of their citizenship or ability, to receive an international clearance (ITC) from their former country when they are registering to play soccer in a different country (i.e. the United States). U.S. Soccer is responsible for obtaining that ITC on behalf of all players in the U.S. participating in affiliated leagues.
