Practice Times

There are LIMITED practice time slots available for teams participating in the NPL Finals. Teams that are interesting in reserving a practice time need to contact US Club Soccer Event Manager Justin Peterman at @jpeterman@usclubsoccer.org.


TEAM CHECK IN & EVENT REQUIREMENTS

As a reminder, even though event registration took place in GotSport, you will still need to manage your roster and player/staff cards on Sports Engine since that is where player registration took place for the 20/21 season.

We have made changes to how we do team check in and what is required.  Outlined below is a list of what you will need. These changes will make the check in process much quicker.

  • Please bring 6 copies of your official US Club Soccer roster to team check in
    • Players must have Jersey numbers listed on the roster
    • Roster must include coaching staff
    • Roster must show all players as carded
    • Roster cannot have any write ins
    • No guest players are allowed
    • Reminder, rosters can have up to 26 players, but game day roster is limited to 18 players
  • US Club Soccer officials will review your roster and keep a copy as the official event roster.  At this time, the roster is frozen for the event.
  • We will stamp the other copies of your roster as official event rosters and give those back to you to use at games.  We WILL NOT need player/staff cards at team check in.
  • Prior to each game, you will provide an official stamped roster to the referee along with the player & staff cards.  Referees will check the rosters to the cards (if a player is on the roster but does not have a card or a player has a card but is not on the roster, they are not eligible to play).
  • Please also make sure to have player medical forms available on-site (we will not check them, but in case of emergency you will need to produce those either in hard copy or digitally).

You will check in at least one hour prior to your first game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.  Administrative Staff will be at Headquarters located in VIP E lot (next to lot C).  Teams will need to bring their rosters there on the first day of competition prior to playing and we will get you checked in.
