CLUB PASS PLAYER ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Updated February 2014
421.
Club Pass System
421.1
During regular season play, a player may club pass to another team, under the
rule as defined in 421.3, within the same member affiliate.
421.2
Club-pass play is permitted for U-14 and older Recreational players; Athena,
Classic, and Academy U-12 players. Club pass between Athena, Classic and
Recreational Programs is not allowed.
421.3
Academy U12 and Select U13 and older players may club pass (1) to a team at
the same age but a higher competitive level, and/or (2) to a team at an older age
group at the same or higher competitive level. Academy U12 players may club
pass to an affiliate’s first and/or second division team(s) only. Recreational
players may club pass to an older age team. The determining age is the age at
which the player is rostered rather than the player’s true age.
421.4
A player may play with the team on which he is registered and one other team on
a given day. A player may not play in more than two games in any one day. A
team may use a maximum of three club-pass players in any one game.
421.5
Any player found to be playing for a team on which that player is not eligible to
participate will be deemed an ineligible player and a forfeit will be charged
against the team with which the player participated. The D&P Committee has the
right to add additional sanctions against either or both the player and the coach
after a hearing to determine intent.
To assign a CLUB PASS player to another team’s specific game day lineup sheet in the
Georgia Soccer/ADG system, please read the above from the Georgia Soccer Youth Rules
and Regulations to make sure your player is eligible, then follow the steps below.
NOTE: The coach / assistant coach / team manager of the player’s current team
must initiate the process and assign the player to the team with which the player
will be club passing.
This means that the team wishing to use a club pass player must contact the
manager or coach of the team to which the player is rostered in a timely fashion.
1. To assign a club pass player, you must be rostered to the team as a head coach,
assistant coach, or team manager, and you must have a user name and password.
2. Log into the ADG site by entering your user name and password in the boxes at the
upper left at either your affiliate’s specific URL or the Georgia Soccer site:
gs.affinitysoccer.com (no www. needed)
You will be on your My Account page. (If you see a Welcome message, click on the My
Account button at the upper right to reach your My Account page.) You will see all the
teams with which you are associated, and you will have links to all the teams to which you
are properly rostered.
3. In the TEAMS section, click on the “Tournament” hyperlink next to the name of the team
that will be lending the club pass player.
4. On the Tournament page, click on the “Edit” hyperlink at the far right in the “Tournaments
Registered To” section.
5. The next page has several tabs across the top. Click the “Player Roster” tab.
You will see a list of all players on your team’s official roster.
6. Scroll to the right of the screen and look for the “Active?” column. If a player will be
playing two games in one day, as allowed by Rule 421.4, leave the box checked.
Otherwise, uncheck the box for the player who is club passing, and click the “Set Active
Players” button at the bottom. Next, click on the “Assign” link for that player.
7. From the dropdown menus, assign the player to a game. Select the team with which the
player will be club passing, then select the game number of the game to which the player
will be assigned. Click the “Save” button.
Note: On this page, the system will keep track of all assignments for particular players. It will also keep
track of any players that were assigned to your team during the season.
8. The club pass player, labeled (DEV), will appear on the game day lineup sheet for that
specific game. A player who is also playing a game that day with the team to which they
are officially rostered will also appear on that team’s game day lineup sheet.
Note: The jersey number of the club pass player does not appear on the accepting team’s game day
lineup sheet. It must be handwritten on the sheet. (Jersey numbers, whether for club pass players or
rostered players, are the ONLY items that can be handwritten in the players’ section of the game day lineup
sheet by anyone other than a referee.)
9. Should the addition of a club pass player to your game day roster put it over 18 active
players (the maximum number allowed by Georgia Soccer rules), you will need to
deactivate players. Under the Player Roster tab, in the “Active?” column, uncheck as many
boxes as needed to bring to 18 the number of players on your game day roster, then click
the “Set Active Players” button at the bottom.
10. The club pass player, labeled (DEV), will appear in the Goals/Cautions/Ejections
dropdown when the game is scored so that any goals or disciplinary items can be recorded.
11. You must reactivate any deactivated players, including club pass players, in order for
them to appear on game day lineup sheets for subsequent games. Check the appropriate
box in the “Active?” column, then click the “Set Active Players” button.
NOTE: Please be aware of the following rules!
732.1 Any player sent off during a game shall be automatically suspended from the next game scheduled of the
team in which he/she is rostered and played under US Youth Soccer affiliation and competition. Player is also
ineligible for participation in the Georgia Soccer Youth Club Pass System until the suspension is served.
732.8 Any player receiving 3 cautions in a playing season will sit out the next scheduled and played game for the
team that he/she is rostered to under US Youth Soccer affiliation and competition. Player is ineligible for participation
in the Georgia Soccer Youth Club Pass System until the suspension is served. Failure to serve the mandatory
suspension will result in a forfeiture of any and all games played while the player was ineligible. Additional sanctions
to the player or the coach may be assessed by the D&P Committee if deemed appropriate after a hearing.
732.8a In addition, the player shall sit out the next scheduled and played game when 2 more cautions are
received. The player will then sit out the next scheduled and played game each time an additional caution is
received. Player is ineligible for participation in the Georgia Soccer Youth Club Pass System until the
suspension is served.
A recent change to Rule 421.4 allows a player to play two games in one day: one game
with the team to which she is rostered, and one club-pass game. If the player club-passes
for the first game and receives a card, as above, the player can serve the suspension by
sitting out the second game, which is with the team to which she is rostered. However, if
the player plays the first game with the team to which she is rostered and receives a card,
as above, she is immediately ineligible to club pass. She must sit out the next scheduled
and played game of the team to which she is rostered before being eligible to club pass.
