I, the parent/guardian of the below minor child, hereby request my child to play soccer in an age group older than that recommended and dictated by the Florida Youth Soccer Assocation (FYSA) and Bay United Soccer Club. I am aware that my child will be playing against older, more physically developed players with potentially higher level of soccer skills, and therefore recognize the added risks to my child's health and safety, as well as my child's emotional well being. In completing this form, I accept these risks as my own, and accept all and every liability and responsibility stemming from such risks as my own, and absolve Bay United Soccer Club and FYSA from any responsibility for same. I also acknowledge that I am making this decision on my own initiative, and have not been requested to do so by any Bay United Soccer coach or member. This is a request for evaluation to play up and that a panel of coaches appointed by the DOC will evaluate players including but not limited to technical skills, tactical skills, game awareness, physical competency, and maturity; and that the DOC will have the ultimate and exclusive decision-making authority and all decisions are final until the following year at which time the parent may submit another Request for Evaluation to Play Up.
FYSA RECOMMENDS THAT PLAYERS NOT REGISTER TO A TEAM WHOSE AGE GROUP EXCEEDS THE PLAYERS NORMAL AGE. It is FYSA's policy that all players compete at a level they are capable of both physically and developmentally. For a player to move up more than one normal age grouping may require approval from the affiliate's director of coaching or agent of record, and the FYSA Director of Coaching.
I, the parent/guardian of the registrant, agree that we will abide by the rules of Bay United Soccer Club, the state association (FYSA) and all its affiliated organizations. My/our child wishes to participate in soccer during the annual year of this registration. I/we realize risks are involved in my/our child's participation. I/we understand that the risks to my/our child includes full range of injuries from minor to severe, and the result could be death, paralysis, or other serious, permanent disability. I/we accept this risk as a condition of my/our child's participation.
