NJ Teams will need to get their NJYS player passes and roster validated by a NJYS district commissioner. CJYSA has DC’s for you to contact for validating your roster. The league commissioners are as follows:
Please remember, some district commissioners will not have their stamps until after 8/05 each year. Be sure to call your DC before bringing them your rosters for validation.
District Commissioner note:
Fran Harkes: Drop off packets to her by Tuesday night and they will be ready by Thursday night. Drop packets in the MAIL SLOT -SLIDE IN (just like the mail) so she sees them when she walks in the door. DO NOT DROP OFF IN THE BOX-that is OUTGOING ONLY. When packet completed, they will be put in the BOX for pick up at team/club’s convenience. Fran does travel out of town overnight for work, so do not leave validation until the last minute! She may not be around! Do NOT wait until a day or two before your game to drop off paperwork! Fran is NOT available for weekend validation UNLESS YOU CALL AHEAD TO SCHEDULE! Prepare your packet as follows: paperwork in three piles (birth certificate; medical release; membership form) all in alphabetical order with the pass clipped to the front of the player membership form. Any birth certificates in a language other than English, highlight the birthdate on the form. Be sure to include TWO (2) copies of your roster - one for DC to keep and one to return to you. Be sure to include a contact number and email address so the DC can let you know when your passes are ready.
TEAMS LOOKING FOR THE RETURN OF PLAYER PASSES DUE TO GAME MISCONDUCT MUST CALL 732-940-5599 (JOE MATRALE @ MSSL OFFICE), firstname.lastname@example.org OR JAN YAGER AT email@example.com - the commissioners will not have your player passes
Completed packets can be mailed, express mail or Fed Ex’d to the DC of your choice. If you choose this option, you must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope in your packet for its return (expect cost to be around 1.80). Be sure to include a phone number and email address where you can be reached in the event of a question or a problem. You should contact the district commissioner by phone or email with questions.
Fran Harkes: 30 Clinton Ave, Kearny, NJ 07032
