Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Guidelines for Attending NON-SANCTIONED US Youth Soccer (USYS) Competitions
Several years ago the majority of in-state and out-of-state tournaments were sanctioned by USYS. As a member of NCYSA you are also a member of USYS and USSF (United States Soccer Federation).
Decision of the NCYSA Executive Board 8/4/2020: If travel has been requested to an out-of-state tournament, NCYSA Notification to Travel rules will apply. For the team to receive approval, an email from their association president (or his/her designee) to Joette Kivett firstname.lastname@example.org is required, stating he/she reviewed safety plans and approves the travel. Upon receipt of the email, NCYSA will approve the requested Notification to Travel .
There are other soccer organizations that are members of the United States Soccer Federation, but are not members of US Youth Soccer. These organizations may offer competitions (tournaments or friendly games) that are sanctioned through their organization but not through US Youth Soccer.
Since there are many more tournament choices; your team should be aware of the following information:
The NCYSA website contains a list of the NCYSA/USYS sanctioned tournaments.
If you have further questions regarding non-sanctioned competitions please contact Lyn Halstead at the NCYSA State Office.
There is a $15.00 administrative fee when requesting this information.
