IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE MSYSA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
All of us are working through the Coronavirus crisis and are trying to figure out how to restart our soccer world once we get back out on the fields and begin play. The time that we start back up may be towards the time when teams and Clubs will begin tryouts for the next seasonal year.
To prepare everyone, we thought that it best to remind all Clubs that MSYSA does have an enforceable policy regarding the recruitment of players, coaches and teams.
The policy was enacted at the beginning of the 2019/2020 seasonal year and its goal is to ensure a level field of competition between all MSYSA affiliates when recruiting players, coaches and teams. It is NOT intended to restrict the development of players.
All clubs invest large amounts of time and money into their teams. Losing players in the middle of the seasonal year has the possibility of destabilizing teams which may cost clubs time, money and resources.
There is a financial penalty for clubs who violate the policy. We hope to avoid this by encouraging all MSYSA members to work together and to actively promote players to the level of play that is appropriate based upon their technical capabilities and social needs.
Please familiarize yourselves with the MSYSA Player, Coach and Team Movement Policy and share this information with your teams.
RECRUITMENT POLICY HERE
MSYSA deems this policy a crucial step in the enforcement of illegal recruitment within our state association.
