C5 Home Games

At the monthly USA Board meeting this week, one of the discussion items involved travel to the C5 areas.  After looking at all factors, including cost of travel, distance and listening to the majority of member’s input, the USA Board voted on the following:

For D2 and D3 teams in C5, they will be required to play all home games at a C3 complex. Some C3 clubs have already offered use of their fields; location to be confirmed at a later date.  Any D1 teams will travel and play a usual home and away schedule.

The USA Board feels this decision was made in the best interest of all members and thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

The Application for the 2014-2015 season is now open and ready for teams to apply. Click here for information on the Senior Season and here for information on the Junior Season. This year USA must receive payment in full by the application deadline, which is July 1 for the Senior Season, and August 1 for the Junior Season. Clubs who wish to pay in a single check to USA must mail it in time for USA administration to receive it before the deadline.

This is done at the club level, usually by the registrar or other club designated person. Instructions can be found here. USA guest players rules, now apply to club pass players.
