Guest Player for Tournament

MSYSA Guest Player Loan Form
The Tournament Center

Processed by The Tournament Center, use the Guest Player Loan Form when a player residing in Michigan will be playing in a tournament as a guest player for a team they are not normally registered to. 

Players who are currently registered on a team and already have a valid Passcard with that team will only need to complete the Guest Player Loan Form. No payment or additional materials are required as they will not need a Guest Player Passcard - the player will use their Passcard from their original team.

There is a $20 fee for Guest Player Passcards. Please click here to pay.
To obtain a Guest Player Passcard the following should be sent to jpearson@michiganyouthsoccer.org
- Color headshot of player (similar to a passport photo)
- Proof of birth
- Completed copy of the Guest Player Loan form (from the
Tournament Center)
- Completed copy of Parent/Athlete Concussion form. Click here

  •  Player was born outside of the United States, including U.S. citizens born abroad.
