Cal South Finalizes the Approval Process

The Release and Transfer process is completed online via the Cal South Registration System.

What is a "Release and Transfer?" The formal request to move from one team to another within the same seasonal year.

Before you begin

You will need to have the following:

  • Cal South Username and Password
  • If you are transferring the player, you will also need the team’s District, League, Club, Play Type, Age Group, and Team ID Number

Important information to know:

If your release and transfer will occur during the Fall Roster Freeze period between August 1 and the first Monday after Thanksgiving, the following will apply:

  • The Fall Season roster freeze period is from August 1st through the 1st Monday after Thanksgiving
  • A Release and Transfer is only allowed during this time period when initiated online by the parent and uncontested by both the releasing and incoming club o There is a maximum of 7 days for the releasing registrar to contest the transfer request online, otherwise the request is deemed approved
  • If contested, the parent may appeal. The parent must initiate the appeal process within 3 days and pay the $100 appeal fee (refundable if transfer is granted on appeal). Otherwise, the transfer is denied.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your local competitive leagues (CSL, Presidio, SCDSL, Central Coast, Bakersfield) may have more restrictive player transfer policies. These policies will take precedence during their respective season.
