2019/20 Player Registration


 

Player Registration for Winter 2019/20

Opens August 9th


We are happy to announce our New Website and Logo

Live on August 8th.

We will be tweaking as we go so if you have suggestions or changes you would like to see your feedback is welcome.

*RGSA members please disregard and have players register on the RGSA

website*

Players may click on the Registration link and register using the key code provided at the end of this email. Also included in this email is your login and password for your ADMIN LOGIN access.

•The cost for registering a player is $50.00. Online credit card payment and e-transfer payment is available.  Please keep in mind that we have gone to a cashless office for safety reasons.

 ID Cards –The ID cards are to be downloaded from your team page onto your phone or tablet for viewing by the referee at the field. The download will include all paid player ID’s along with the coach ID’s. You will be able to download the ID cards once the schedule is complete and the player has paid the registration fee. If you don’t see the player on your roster and they say they have registered they probably haven’t paid yet or did not hit finished on their registration and will need to log back in and complete it by hitting finished and paying for the registration.

To download the ID cards, you will need to log in with your coach/manager login,

·            click on team pages,

·            go to the schedule on your team page and on the far right beside the Match Reports (MR) and Rosters you will see Cards.

·            Click on cards to download.

·            Click on Roster to download and print.  Roster will only be viewable 6 days before a game. Both ID Cards and Rosters have discipline info on them so will need to be current each week with the game day info on them.

The first card that will come up in the download will include the scheduled game details.  The cards will need to be downloaded for each game.  Should any of your players receive a Red Card the ID card will appear still but will have Red Card stamped across it until the game suspensions are completed.

Two printed copies of the MWSL Roster/Team lists are still required for the referee when requested prior to the match commencing along with the ID card download.

Players can play for 6 days after they register online with their email confirmation and picture ID.  If not paid by the 7th day your registration may be cancelled, and you and your team may face large fines if you choose to play.  Unpaid players are not insured.

ScheduleAll Teams must be prepared to play all scheduled games including make-up weekends as laid out in the integrated cup schedule. First weekend of play is Sept 6th, 2019.

Cup Schedule Tentative round robin dates for cup play are Nov 15-17, Jan 17-19 and Jan 24-26

Divisions – New teams to the league have been placed in the Divisions we had room in, and I am still working on some adjustments in some of the divisions so there may still be some changes. 

Managers,

I suggest you copy and paste the following instructions to send to your players:

Player Registration Player registration for Fall/Winter soccer is open. Use your Fall login and Password and click Player registration at www.mwsl.com. If you can't remember your password use the forgot password function on the player registration page. Once you have logged in, fill out the online form. You must first enter in the key code. (Please provide your players the key code included) If you are new to the league or do not have a photo uploaded on your profile then add an ID photo when the form prompts you.

The photo is for your ID card so head shots ONLY are required with no sunglasses or hats or group photos. If you played last year the uploaded photo will carry over to this year’s card. Change the photo if you are wearing a hat or sunglasses, or the photo is too small and not appropriate for an ID card. No group photos. Click finished when you have completed the form.

Looking forward to the beginning of a new season! Please be sure to check our website regularly for updates.


Thank you,

Jo-Dee Stanley

Soccer for the New Player

NEW :  Soccer for the New Player

 

Due to the overwhelming response to the recent Intro to Soccer Program and in an effort to interest and attract future players to the beautiful game the Metro Women’s Soccer League will introduce a new program for the 2019 - 20 Winter season.   

The program will run weekly, consist of a pre-game warm-up followed by a game where participants will learn about FIFA Laws of the Game (rules), positions, formations and terminology.   The intent is for participants to have fun, add a healthy activity to lifestyle and develop a greater understanding of the game.

The program will run from mid-September to mid-November (8 to 10 weeks).

Those already involved in soccer are also invited in order to get on the field more and get more touches on the ball. 

Please share or pass this along to anyone that might be interested.    More information to come soon regarding start date, field location, day and time. Once details confirmed registration will be open and you will all receive an email from the MWSL that registration is now open.

Anyone interested please email the MWSL at info@mwsl.com so that we can add you to the email list and provide further information on this program.
