Travel Request

[Updated: 9/08/2016]

Domestic Travel Instructions

A “Travel Request” must be submitted in advance of your team traveling outside the state of Minnesota (exception: traveling extraterritorial/Wisconsin affiliate members and Midwest Regional League). The Travel Request forms are accessed from a team’s MYSA Affinity Account (located on the left hand menu in the Affinity Sports system for MYSA members). Please provide a separate request for each trip or tournament you will participate in outside the MYSA. A $25 payment is required at the time of each request. Requests are approved by the MYSA.

Official Rosters and Guest Players

Once a Travel Request is approved by MYSA, official travel rosters can be printed by the team. Printing of travel rosters should be done in accordance to the tournament or event timelines and prior to travel. This travel roster will show all eligible team members and coaches. Guest players can be used if the event or tournament allows. Please follow those event and tournament instructions when guesting players into your team. MYSA reviews and approves guest player forms if eligible and presented at least 72 hours prior to travel or the tournament event.

Questions may be directed to Cam Stoltz, MYSA League Commissioner, at 952-252-0225 (800-366-6972) or camstoltz@mnyouthsoccer.org.
