|Parents and the Cal South Player Release and Transfer Process|
As the parent of a soccer player, you should be aware of our release and transfer process. What is a release and transfer? Within the Cal South Rules and Regulations, a player rostered to a team is bound to that team for the entire seasonal year unless the player requests a transfer or is released. The bulk of release and transfer requests generally occur before the roster freeze periods for State Cup and National Cup, though many also occur prior to the annual August 1st freeze period preceding the upcoming fall season. There is a $25 fee for completing the release and transfer process which must be paid directly to the incoming league or club.
It is the parent's responsibility to not only initiate the release and transfer process online, but also to make sure they contact the coaches of both the releasing and incoming teams. Why is this important? The parent will need to get the following documentation from their current team's administrator (head coach, team manager, etc.) to hand over to their league or club registrar:
1) Cal South Player Pass
It will then be the responsibility of that registrar to indicate during the online release and transfer process whether or not the Player Pass was collected.
Once the parent has initiated the release and transfer process online, a set of emails and alert notifications will be sent to the registrar and District Commissioner. Upon final approval by the District Commissioner, the parent and the registrar will receive an email notification. Once the parent has received the approval notification, they should then contact the registrar of their new club or league to ensure that a new Cal South Player Pass is generated with their updated status.
