Playing Policies, Forms, Guides

This page hosts the NJYS Playing Policies, guidelines, and forms that are applicable to player, coach, and team participation with NJYS and NJYS member leagues. 

Secondary Permissions

Players in NJ Youth Soccer may only have one Travel Member Pass (i.e. primary card). NJ Youth Soccer also permits secondary permissions for 9U through 19U players. Note that this is not permitted for 6U through 8U. Policies for secondary permissions are determined at the League level. See your local NJ Youth Soccer Member League for details.

Note: NJ Youth Soccer began allowing club passing with the 2017-2018 seasonal year. Club passes are used to play on another team within the same club as long as proper age restrictions are met. In such cases, secondary player permissions are not needed or applicable. Contact your League for specific policies and rules of its competition.

Reminders:

  • "Dual" or "Double" carding, where a player has a primary NJYS membership with more than one team or club, is not permitted. Any player found to have multiple primary NJYS memberships will expose themselves and their teams to disciplinary action by NJ Youth Soccer and/or their affiliated League, which may include fines and/or suspensions.
  • As it pertains to NJYS State Cups (NJYS National Championships Series, Presidents Cup and Commissioners Cup), players with secondary permissions are not eligible even though the team's NJYS League may permit secondary permissions. If a player with a secondary permission appears on a State Cup roster, that team will be disqualified from the competition. This rule does not prevent a player from club passing (which is different from a secondary permission) to play with another team in that club for non-State Cup competitions.

A Note on Scrimmages & Friendlies

NJ Youth Soccer defines a friendly or scrimmage as any soccer-related event taking place in New Jersey in which all participants (players and coaches) are in possession of valid/current US Youth Soccer/NJ Youth Soccer passes, and the event is not a scheduled US Youth Soccer/NJ Youth Soccer league or competition (e.g. sanctioned tournament) match.

Referee coverage may be utilized for these events, but any referees used must be currently US Soccer registered, and must be procured via a certified NJSRC registered assignor.
