Out of State teams need to have player passes with an USYSA or US CLUB affiliation. With our league, teams domiciled outside of NJ may choose to affiliate with their in-state USYSA (i.e., CT-CYSA, E.PA-EPYSA, E.NY-ENYYSA, DE-DYSA) or US CLUB (national passes) or both.
Out of state team wishing to use USYSA passes, MUST affiliate their USYSA state roster with NJYS to play in our league (as required under USYSA rules regarding out of state travel etc). This includes teams who wish to use our CJYSA league as a qualifying league for their National Cup Series State Cup. NJYS charges a fee of $100 per team to affiliate with the NJYS state association.
By this affiliation, you are subject to NJYS rostering rules and must abide by those rostering rules in order to receive a validated NJYS out of state roster.
NJYS rostering rules:
a. Teams interested in 8v8 Cup qualifying: U11-U12 teams may choose to play 8v8 and roster a maximum of 14 active players; with no more than 18 total players rostered during a seasonal year (Fall & Spring). Your USYSA state roster must match identical to the NJYS roster. This means your USYSA state cup and state roster must be identical. You are not permitted secondary carded players on your roster.
b. Teams interested in 11v11 Cup qualifying: U11-U12 teams play 11 v. 11, and roster a maximum of 18 active players; with no more than 24 total players rostered during a seasonal year (Fall & Spring). Your state roster must match identical to the NJYS roster - meaning your state cup roster must match your out of state roster (NJYS does not recognize two rosters-your league roster is your state cup roster). You cannot roster 20 on your state roster; you can roster no more than 18 at any given time. You are not permitted secondary carded players on your roster.
c. U13 through U19 teams play 11 v. 11 and may roster a maximum of 22 active players; but may only bring 18 dressed players for a match. NJYS limits the total roster slots to 28 during a seasonal year.
CJYSA does not offer Cup qualifying for teams younger than U11.
When registering with CJYSA, Do NOT purchase a NJYS pass packet. You will purchase the out of state affiliation directly from NJYS. This roster must be completed, and validated by NJYS - PRIOR to the start of our league season or your first league game. Failure to do so will result in your team being disqualified for your state cup and all CJYSA games will be declared forfeit wins for your opponents. Please note: EDP teams, through an agreement with CJYSA, play a CJYSA schedule in compliance with USYSA state cup rules. The listed league for permission to play in an out of state league is CJYSA.
NJYS Non-NJ roster compliance process for non-NJ teams wishing to use USYSA passes for NJ league play and/or State Cup qualifying:
What NJYS needs from an out of state team to process and validate an out of state roster:
a. A completed NJYS out of state club registration form to issue a NEW Got Soccer club account affiliated with NJYS; link here
b. Valid USYSA state roster from your own state
c. Completed permission to play in out of state form
d. $100 check payable to NJYS
While a team is finalizing their own home state USYSA roster, they should complete the NJYS out of state club registration form and send that in with the $100 check to NJYS office. NJYS will wait for the roster and permission form as well as the out of state roster that is completed (below) for the process to be completed and validated.
569 Abbington Dr, Suite 5
East Windsor, NJ 08520
Remember to have your state association complete the permission to play in an out of state league form and give to you when they give you your validated roster.
Submit the NJYS form for out of state clubs with updated club information. NJYS will approve your club and activate and send you the Got Soccer user ID and pin they assign (for returning clubs, it is usually the same as you had for this last year-but it just needs to be activated).
Send (or email) the information to NJYS-address below. In addition, you must send in a copy of your US Youth Soccer roster and the validated permission to play in an out of state league form and a $100 check for your team’s out of state affiliation (this is a per team charge, not per club).
Upon receipt of the NJYS out of state club registration form, NJYS will contact the team/club contact listed on the registration with the new user ID & pin for the NEW Got Soccer club account. Please note this is may be a second Got Soccer Club account-especially if your state association is using Got Soccer for your own state rostering. This is often the most confusing part of the process. You do NOT use the existing account; you MUST use the new account that NJYS establishes under the NJYS access.
Log into the NJYS club account and attach the team to the NJYS Got Soccer Club account by “importing the team” to the account (for returning teams, it may already be there, so once activated, you can check that first) using the import function under Got Soccer, or create a new team account if one does not already exist. Under the Club account, the team’s roster ID and coach’s ID numbers must be entered (this cannot be done under the team account).
Club account must affiliate with our Central Jersey Youth Soccer under the club account (from the home tab, click on Events in the blue bar; then click on Search Events in the gray bar; fill in the event as follows: "NJYS - Central Jersey Youth Soccer 2014/2015" and click go. When the event appears, click on it, and apply now; apply without a team, and it is done). AFTER AUGUST 1st – NJYS will open the roster registration event. You will log into the club account, click on EVENTS and then SEARCH EVENTS. Type in the name of the NJYS rostering event for 2014-2015: NJYS – CENTRAL JERSEY YOUTH SOCCER 2014-2015 (it may be slightly different-so type in NJYS and look for CENTRAL JERSEY YOUTH SOCCER in the listing as well as 2014-2015)
You will then make sure all of your players are listed on the roster and all of the player USYSA ID numbers are listed as well under the team or club account. Also be sure all the coaches ID numbers are listed and the team’s roster ID is also included (these can only be added/edited from the club account).
The league must print your roster (please send an email requesting it to be printed). Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org when the steps above are completed-including all the player and coach IDs and roster ID. We send the roster back to you in the email as well as Lindsey in the NJYS office. You verify that it is identical to your USYSA roster and Lindsey also reviews. If all is in order, Lindsey validates the out of state roster and sends back to you and the league by email.
Keep in mind that NJYS does not open the rostering event until after August 1, so you cannot affiliate your roster until after that date. However, you can register your club with NJYS and send in all required fees in advance.
Once you receive the validated roster, if you see a copy was not sent to the league, please send on to:
fax: 888-520-5663 (2nd preferred)
The league must have your validated roster prior to the state of league games.
While we have the roster under Got Soccer, we do not have the validated roster and why it must be sent to us.
You should be completing the out of state roster if you are using USYSA passes for league play. Even if you are not using our league games for state cup qualifying, NJYS rules have always required out of state teams to have NJ out of state rosters.
Any questions about the Got Soccer process should be directed to NJYS @ (609) 490-0725
