U11 thru U12 New Jersey TEAMS PLAYING 8v8 Format – LEAGUE FACTS
Read all information below before clicking the registration links – registration process and prices have changed for 2014-2015!
MAPS LEAGUE U11-U12 8v8 SPRING 2015
LEAGUE REGISTRATION FEE: Teams incur a single season league registration fee that is charged when a team registers. The cost is $200 for the Fall 2014 and $200 for the Spring 2015 season. A team may register to play Spring 2015 when Spring registration opens December 1st, and is again charged $200 for the spring season, OR register now and pay the $200 now. This way you do not have to worry about whether you registered or now. Of course, if you aren't sure you will play in the spring, the old method of season by season is still available.
FORFEIT BOND: Forfeit bond is applicable to ALL teams as a One-time fee of $300. The fee carries over season to season. Fee will be returned to team upon departure from the league or when you age out, whichever comes first. You will be charged the one time forfeit bond as part of the electronic registration. You are required to check off that you have read the League Forfeit Bond Policy on your application. Read the League Forfeit Bond policy here. New teams must purchase a $300 one time bond; as well as returning teams that did not pay.
NJYS PLAYER TEAM ROSTER FEES: APPLICABLE TO NJ TEAMS ONLY
U11-12 ONLY – $175.00 14 player ROSTER AFFILIATION - 18 passes will be sent to team managers as listed on the application-be sure to include mailing address & correct email. Teams register for NJYS rostering only ONCE during a seasonal year (9/1-8/31)
To simplify our registration, 8v8 format teams will register for one league event and have one league schedule. While the schedule will include both CJYSA and USCL games, CJYSA games will be designated by the league for all inflight games. All crossover matches or supplemental listed games are USCL games.
Full Payment by credit card or e-check must be made for your application to be complete. We accept VISA and MasterCard only. All credit card transactions will be charged a 4% processing fee.
PAYMENT: PLEASE ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS on the application as accurately as possible. You are charged based upon the answer to the questions.
Returning teams will be charged any outstanding forfeit fines or referee fees that may be due. YOUR REGISTRATION FEE WILL NOT BE PROCESSED AND SENT TO YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY UNTIL THIS IS DONE. You are approved when the payment is verified with the bank or credit card company. FEES will be pended to each team when registering online.
LEAGUE AFFILIATION: Our organization recognizes two governing bodies for league play-CJYSA league, affiliated with NJYS and USCL league affiliated with US CLUB Soccer. This means, teams participating under CJYSA must use USYSA (NJYS) affiliated passes, and those participating under USCL must use US CLUB passes. Teams are required to present NJYS passes at each CJYSA league match, and US Club passes at each USCL match, as verification of governing affiliation of the match. CJYSA league is affiliated with NJYS and ALL NJ players playing 11v11 are REQUIRED to obtain NJYS Player PASSES for participation in our league.
All U11 & U12 teams playing 8v8 will register USYS AND US Club. U11 and U12 teams will be eligible to participate in the NJYS State Cup also available in 8v8 format. Even if you are not planning to register for the NJYS state cup, you will still have CJYSA as well as USCL games. Because a team cannot register under two rosters (8v8 & 11v11, and NJYS rules that an 8v8 team at no time may become 11v11) you cannot register under 11v11 as well. Your only option is to create another team with an 11v11 roster and have players secondary card (up to 4 permitted by our league).
NJYS ROSTERING AFFILIATION FEES: The NJYS Rostering fee is the NJYS charge for affiliating your roster with NJYS. You must register the NJYS Got Soccer event corresponding with your primary league (do not register with another league). The league collects this fee for all NJ teams who are registering with our league as their primary league. Even though CJYSA will charge the rostering fee, all teams registering with MAPS are still required to register for the NJYS Roster Registration event in Got Soccer. NJYS Official Roster registration will open the first week in August 2014. If you have registered and paid the league fees, the league will approve your NJYS roster via Got Soccer. U11 and U12 teams can choose a small roster, with a maximum of 14 players rostered, to play 8v8 format, under NJYS and NEW THIS YEAR. IMPORTANT: If you are a New Jersey team, and we are your primary or only league, you must purchase your NJYS pass packet through our league. Your club registrars should not attempt to purchase through another league. You are purchasing the ROSTERING AFFILIATION, NOT PASSES. If you are playing in another league and they are your primary league, you should purchase your packet through that league and indicate same when completing our application.
US CLUB SOCCER PASSES: Instructions for obtaining US CLUB passes may be found here.
If you are a NJ team that has all of your players carded to other NJYS teams so that you cannot form a NJYS team, you can register as USCL only and play with US Club passes only. You must 1) provide copies of all players 2013/2014 NJYS passes to finalize any schedule in our league. If your team already plays in a NJYS league in addition to our league, you may register for USCL only.
U11-U12 New Jersey teams interested in playing under US CLUB governance (and obtaining US CLUB passes) may do so, but cannot play USCL only (this does not apply to those teams playing in another NJYS league)
U11 and older Teams are required to hold US Club passes in addition to their USYSA passes.
