Administration Responses 

Question:
A field/venue requires proof of insurance before they will let our club practice or play there. What do we need to do?
Response: Submit a completed Liability Insurance Certificate Request, available online at Quick Links>
Forms/Rules/Policies > Forms Directory > Administrative.
You will receive a certificate in a couple of business days.

Question:
How can we start a new club?
Response: Applications for new recreational club affiliation may be submitted at any time and are processed by MYSA State Office. All applications will be reviewed on a regular basis. Applications for competitive club affiliation must be received in the MYSA state office on Oct. 1 of each year for participation in the upcoming spring/summer season and by April 1 for the upcoming fall season.
Requirements for club affiliation, both competitive and recreational, are found in section 1.0 of the MYSA Policies and Rules Manual (Quick Links > Forms/Rules/Policies > Rules Manual). For further information and access to application materials, contact Minnesota Youth Soccer at 952-933-2384 (800-366-6972) or mysa@mnyouthsoccer.org.


Question:
How do I get my address changed on the website and for mailings such as Soccer Times?
Response: Player, coach and manager information is updated by your club Registrar and resubmitted to MYSA. Club board member changes are updated online via the MYSA website by your club President or Registrar. No changes via telephone will be accepted.

Question:
How do I register a complaint about my child's club or coach?
Response: Concerns of this kind are the responsibility of the member club. The complaint or concern should be directed towards the following officials in this order: 1) the team coach or team manager; 2) Coaching Director or Club Administrator; 3) Club President. MYSA would be the last resort if it is impossible to get satisfaction through contact with the club made in the appropriate manner or if MYSA Policies or Rules are violated.

Question:
How many players are registered with MYSA?
Response: There are approximately 75,000 competitive and recreational players registered with MYSA.

Question:
I can't open a pdf? How can I get this information?
Response: MYSA forms, minutes and other files are in a Portable Document Format (pdf) so that they cannot be altered and are quick to update. To view and print these files, your computer must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. Reader software is free to download from Adobe's website at: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

Question:
My Competitive Representative is not returning my emails or phone calls. What can I do?
Response: Players, parents or fans should first speak with an official team or club representative (i.e. coach or team manager) who will then contact the MYSA Director of League Operations at 952-252-0225 (800-366-6972) or email: ranaeorr@mnyouthsoccer.org

Question:
My son/daughter was injured at an MYSA event. What can I do?
Response: An Insurance Claim Kit can be found online at Quick Links > Forms/Rules/Policies > Insurance or you can contact MYSA to have the kit mailed to you. Once you return the completed forms to MYSA, Pullen Insurance will contact you. You do not need to have all your bills before submitting. Claims should be submitted within 30 days following injury.

Question:
What district is my club in?
Response: Minnesota is divided up into four metro-area districts (North, South, East, West) and two greater Minnesota districts (Northwest, Southwest) based on geographical location. You can find out what district your club is in by going to Quick Links > Clubs. While each club is placed in only one district, individual teams may be moved to another district to round out a league.
