Passes & Rosters
Rosters, player passes & coach passes will be required for league play. VSA will provide player and coach passes to teams, OR you may choose to use the GOTSoccer App and Virtual Player Passes.
Passes will be printed by VSA and returned to the club’s registrar with approved rosters. Player pass photos should be a current head shot (front facing, neck up. Action shots will be refused) No hats or sunglasses PLEASE.
Please allow 7-10 days for this process.
VSA will use the VSL-Fall as a pilot program for the use of virtual player passes using the GOTSoccer app. You will need a smart phone or tablet and internet service on site to utilize the virtual passes.
The GOTSoccer app allows a coach to view the team’s player/coach passes on their smart phone or tablet. It provides uaccurate player pass/roster information.
If you do not have a smart phone, or prefer to use the standard player passes and roster, please notify the VSA office so that we may process your passes.
