REGISTRATION COMPLIANCE

For the Soccer Association for Youth, USA 

 

As an affiliate of SAY Soccer all membership must submit all required player and coach information digitally within thirty (30) days after the beginning of each season.

SAY Soccer has established three (3) perspective platforms for its membership to select from to makes the information submission process as easy and efficient as possible. These platforms are critical not only for the submission of information to SAY Soccer but are pathways for SAY Soccer members to obtain official SAY ID cards and rosters as well.

Below is a description and comparison of the three (3) available platforms.

Please feel free to contact the SAY National office with any questions. 




CHOOSE A REGISTRATION PLATFORM:

Option 1:

Option 2: 
SAY Soccer Registration Platform: 
powered by Affinity Sports

Affinity Sports has become the nation’s largest integrated data management and compliance software solutions provider to sports associations and their member clubs, leagues, tournaments and teams. Affinity Sports is a proud partner with DICK’s Sporting Goods. Together, with Blue Sombrero, they are creating a single-solution for youth sports organizations nationwide.

This platform is for SAY organizations that do not operate on the Blue Sombrero platform but still need to comply with SAY standards, print official SAY rosters and create ID cards. SAY organization's first step will be to reach out to the SAY National office to gain access and get instructions for the SAY National portal. Once an account is set up, club and team admins will be able to upload player and coach information to create rosters and ID cards.

this platform (just like option one) allows you to skip the hassles of creating a database and submitting it to SAY National. Since you are using the SAY National portal, all of the required player and coach information can automatically be submitted to SAY Soccer.

For these organizations, SAY Soccer offers this simple solution to meet the required information submission standards:

     The basic registration platform consists of four (4) steps

    1. Download the roster database templates.
         CLICK HERE for player database template

    2. Populate ALL mandatory fields with your organizations player and coaches information in their respective databases.

    3. Save the databases using the following file name description organization-season-type

         (i.e. SAY Fire-Fall 2018-Coach.exls)

    
 4. Email the databases as attachments to bbegley@saysoccer.org.
