A tournament team is a team that is registered by Maryland State Youth Soccer Association for the sole purpose of participating in a tournament. Tournament teams are required to register with MSYSA to participate in US Youth Soccer in or outside of Maryland.
A tournament team may be comprised of:
All or some registered travel players.
If a player is registered in the current MSYSA online system, their current primary pass is the one you will take to the tournament.
If a player on the roster is registered in another state with a US Youth Soccer pass, a copy of the front and back of the pass must be included with the tournament team registration package.
All or some MSYSA registered recreational players that have completed either the MSYSA Non-Rostered guest player steps and payment or MSYSA MD Player playing on out-of-state travel team and payment.
MD-Resident recreational players participating on a tournament team that are not on an approved travel roster need to register and pay directly with MSYSA as either
PLEASE NOTE*** - All recreational teams that have submitted their recreational database should NOT proceed to the NRGP Registration. Please contact MSYSA for additional information or if you have any questions.
Note: The links above are for out of state players and non-rostered guest players to register. Once payment is made, and recorded, the MSYSA registrar can issue the pass and registrant may be added to a tournament team.
