Competitive Registration & Fees
To be part of our 2022-23 program and for information on team formation & tryouts please visit our Tryouts page.
Registration for the 2022/23 Season
All Highlanders players must register online by clicking the Register Now button below within 48 hours of being offered a spot on a Highlander Team. When you register, be sure to select the correct Highlanders link for your age group/birth year.
You will be able to upload a proof of birth or passport and a headshot photo of your player for the player pass during registration (see photo requirements in required documentation). You will be able to crop the photo during the registration process, but your child’s face should fill most of the frame after cropping.
If your child played in the NorCal league on a PSC Highlander team last year, you do not need to resubmit a birth certificate. Players who were previously registered with PSC (Recreation/CYSA) but did not play in the NorCal League must resubmit documentation as NorCal and CYSA are not affiliated and age must be verified in the new league. Players who played on a NorCal team, with another club will also need to resubmit proof of age and parents need to ask for a release from their previous club. A player can only play for 1 club per season.
For more information, please see the Refund Policy (Competitive) on the Registration FAQs.
Documentation Needed for NorCal Players:
Player US Club Soccer Registration and Medical Treatment Authorization form.
A completed copy of this form can be downloaded from SportsEngine after you register, in your player’s registration record. Parents should print and sign two copies of the form, have their child sign the forms and return to the team registration manager, who will then deliver to the club’s registrar. This must be a hard copy, not electronic.
Medical Release Form
Copies of registration and medical release from all players on the team are required regardless of whether they played on the team last year.
Youth Player Registration Form
Proof of Age
A copy of the player’s birth certificate or the photo page of a current passport are acceptable as proof of age. This must be submitted as either a pdf or jpeg file. Each player’s birth verification must be sent in a separate file. The file name should be the player’s name and the initials BC at the end. Ex: JohnDoeBC.pdf.
Files for all players should be collected by the Team Manager and hand delivered or mailed to the Registrar. If you send it by single email, email@example.com, include the coach’s name in the subject line of the email. Each file must be small (less than 500 kb) or they will not upload to the registration website.
Players who played in the NorCal on a PSC team last year do not need to resubmit birth verification. Players who were previously registered with PSC but not in NorCal do need to resubmit documentation, as NorCal and CYSA are not affiliated and age must be verified in the new league. Players who played in the NorCal league with a different club also need to submit proof of age as the verification from one club does not transfer to another and parents need to ask for release from previous club.
Photo should be a color head shot. No hats, baseball caps or sunglasses should be worn in the photo. Photo must clearly show the player’s face and cannot be a full body shot. If you submit a hard copy photo, it should be approx. 1” x 1” and follow the same rules as the electronic photos (color, no hats or sunglasss, etc.) Keep in mind that the photo will go on a card the size of a driver’s license.
SportsEngine includes the ability to upload a photo during the registration process. If a parent is not able to upload a photo during SportsEngine registration, they should send an electronic copy of player photo for player pass in a jpeg file to their Team Manager. The file name should be the player’s name. Ex: JohnDoe.jpg. The photo area on the US Club player passes is very small, so a closely cropped head shot works best. Photo files not uploaded to SportsEngine should be collected by the team registration manager and sent to the registrar all at once (Be sure to include the coach’s name in the email). If a photo is submitted through SportsEngine, you do not need to submit a second photo to the team manager.
