The information below pertains to the VSA (Vermont Soccer Association) registration process. For the VSL (Vermont Soccer League - SPRING) registration process click here.

VSA Registration Process
Each seasonal year (9/1-8/31) club coordinators are responsible for registering all club personnel (players, coaches and managers) with Vermont Soccer Association. VSA utilizes the online program GotSoccer to manage its registrations. Club coordinators must upload all players, coaches and managers to GotSoccer and send corresponding forms and fees to VSA each season in order to register (please note that this also includes recreational programs). Please look at the registration steps below for more information about the process. Detailed insturctions on how to upload players to GotSoccer can be found in the "GotSoccer Registration" section on this page. Please contact the VSA office if you have any further questions.

Please read our
Registration Manual for more information about the benefits of registering with VSA and the registration process (click here).

Registration Steps
(1)     Set all players, coaches, and managers from previous seasonal year to “inactive”
(2)     Upload all NEW players, coaches, and team managers to your club GotSoccer account. This can be done one
         of two ways:

a.       Create a new registration event in your club account and send a link to all of your players/families
          so that they can register themselves. Specific instructions on how to do this can be found here.
b.       Do a bulk upload using
the .csv template on the VSA website. Specific instructions on how to do
          this can be found here.
         
*if your team needs player passes, every player, coach and manager must have a picture
          uploaded to his/her GotSoccer account.

(3)     All coaches and team managers must complete a background check through GotSoccer.  They
         cannot be added to a roster until their background check is approved.  Full legal names, including the
         middle initial, AND photo help to speed up the process.
(4)     Assign all of your players, coaches and managers to a team.
(5)     Enter your teams in the “Vermont Soccer 2013-2014 Registration” event
(6)     Fill out the
Registration Submittal Form and send it along with a check to VSA for your total
         registration fee
($6/rec player, $25/travel player, $10/coach, $10/manager)
(7)     Send in Birth Certificates for new players, or any players in your account that are not
         “verified”
(all verified players show a yellow highlighted lock next to their name).
(8)     Send signed
Zero Tolerance Policy and Club Officers Form to VSA.
(9)     If your teams require player passes and rosters, VSA will notify you when your passes are ready to be
         picked up. Please allow 2-3 weeks for this process.
