ONLINE TEAM CHECK-IN INFORMATION

When online check-in is opened, managers and coaches will see on their team dashboard(s) a new set of survey questions to complete.  Here are some reminders as well as 10-question preview of questions to expect during check-in.

  • Online check-in is required of all teams.
  • Youth teams must be checked in by a rostered team member over the age of 25.
  • All rosters are considered final upon the roster lock date.
  • Team members who have NOT completed required surveys found on their team dashboard will NOT be on the official roster and will NOT be allowed to participate.
    • This includes managers and coaches.
  • Roster change requests subsequent to the roster lock date are considered only in extenuating circumstances and must be requested in writing to gina.koehler@sandsoccer.com no later than Thursday, June 9.
    • No changes are allowed upon commencement of the event.

The Checklist below will guide you in reviewing whether (1) your roster is complete, (2) all participants are eligible to participate within the division this team has entered, and (3) the team is prepared to check-in.  Overlooking details regarding eligibility and check-in may result in disqualification of the team from the tournament.

** BEFORE YOU CHECK YOUR TEAM IN **

Go to the "MANAGE TEAM" section of your team dashboard.

  • Any manager or coach with any of the following three combination of icons below has NOT completed registration materials and will not be included on the official roster and may cause entire team to go into a pending status. NASSC may remove the participant from the team and roster at NASSC discretion.

  • A player showing as Pending Approval and/or with any of the above combination of icons has NOT completed registration materials and will not be included on the official roster.

If a team member needs to complete materials, they too should log in to EventConnect, go to their team dashboard and complete materials before posted deadlines.

Participation with an unregistered coach, player, or manager results in forfeits and/or removal from the competition.

_____________________________________________________________

Once you have verified all of your team members have completed registration materials, consider each of the following:

    1. Is your team in the correct division? (age, gender, and competition level). If not, contact gina.koehler@sandsoccer.com immediately. After May 1st, changes are not guaranteed.
    2. Are all of your players listed on your team dashboard? From the team dashboard, find the Team players box, click Manage Team, and view the roster to see which managers, rosters, and players have been invited.  Remember, this is the UNOFFICIAL roster.
    3. Have you removed any players who will NOT be participating with this team in NASSC 2022? 
    4. Have you verified the birthdates for all team members to ensure they are eligible for participation in the division in which this team has registered, according to the age groups and competition levels described in Event Details?  Also note:
      • Youth Recreational teams are NOT allowed to have any player carded as a travel player.  NO EXCEPTIONS.
      • See Event Details for additional information.
    5. Have you completed all surveys shown in the Registration Requirements box on both the manager & coach team dashboards? (check-in questions are required of the primary team manager only)
    6. Have all players completed their registration by answering all of their Participant Questions? From the manager’s team dashboard, look for the notepad icon (not the bed icon) to the right of the player’s name.  If the notepad is blue, the player has completed his/her registration. A gray check, red "X", or "pending approval" for the player indicates registration has not been completed.
    7. Have all non-players (managers and coaches) completed their Management Questions? From the manager’s team dashboard, look for the notepad icon to the right of the player’s name.  If it is blue, the participant has completed his/her registration.
    8. Is your roster size within limits for the division?  REMINDER: any participant listed as a manager or coach who is also a player, must be added to the roster as a player and complete player registration materials even if he/she completed registration materials as a manager or coach.  See "Adding Team Members" for more details.
      • Roster size is limited to ten (10) players (U08-U10 and U.S. Open may have up to twelve players). NO EXCEPTIONS.
    9. YOUTH TEAMS ONLY (U08-U18/19 and High School Coed): Do you have at least one coach/manager registered with the team who is over the age of 25 and will be on the player sideline during all matches?
      • We recommend two "over 25" non-players for all youth teams so you always have a back-up and avoid a forfeit
      • No person may act as coach or manager for a team if they did not complete registration materials with team
    10. COED TEAMS ONLY: Do you have at least three (3) female players on the team roster?

If the answer to any of the above questions is "No"your team is not ready to check-in.
