SPECIAL REQUESTS

Special requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Players may be permitted to move up or down an age group, but this is strongly discouraged.  Any player/parent requesting to play up/down an age division will complete a special request form with sufficient reasons given for the request.  Requests will be reviewed by the Player Development Committee, approved by the Board and signed by the respective parties listed on the form.  The Player Development committee will consider the needs of the teams and/or age divisions involved, as well as the biological age (i.e. physical and psychological maturity), skill level of the player and any special circumstances provided on the request.    The player development committee may request an evaluation of the player from his/her previous coach to assist in the decision.

Parents of players playing down will be informed by the registrar or by the player’s coach that the player is not eligible to play in any sanctioned tournaments in that age group. 

Any player/parent requesting a specific team or coach will complete a special request form with sufficient reasons given for the request.  Requests will be reviewed and approved by the Player Development Committee and the Board and signed by the respective parties listed on the form.  Consideration will be given to the player’s specific circumstances.

Any player who participated in the High School soccer program will be permitted to play in the U16 or U19 age groups without obtaining approval from the Board and Player Development committee, provided they meet the specific guidelines for moving up.  Player selection for each team (JV or Varsity level) will be the responsibility of the coach.  All registered players must be placed on a team.

Players are prohibited from moving up more than three (3) age groups. 

Player removal guidelines will be followed in accordance with the SDYSA policies and procedures manual.
