Starting in 2018, the MYSA begins using a “Club Pass” based on membership approval of a rule change (126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52) at the November 2017 Annual General Meeting.
The objective of a Club Pass is to provide more flexibility to move players among teams based on individual player development and team needs.
- The Club Pass offers clubs the opportunity to tailor a player's experience based on who they are, not just to which team they’ve been assigned.
- Player development can be improved by varying the challenges players encounter at any given time, as opposed to locking a player onto one team for an entire season or year with limited play up opportunities.
- Players are still registered to teams, but the rule allows for up to 5 players to be “club passed” in any game for which they are age-eligible.
