APPLICATION

Once it’s been established that your team will participate in the Buckeye Premier League, you must go to www.buckeyepremier.com.  Select the Application to League link and submit before the league’s application deadline.

Application to and participation in the BPYSL program is by invitation only to US Youth Soccer registered clubs/teams.  All US Youth Soccer member teams make application to the Buckeye Premier league with the understanding that final acceptance and placement within the divisions lies exclusively with the Buckeye Premier Board of Directors. Teams from outside of the boundaries of OSYSA require approval from the team’s National State Association and OSYSA.

  • Invitation for participation is open to any properly registered US Youth Soccer competitive club, organization or team in good standing with a member National State Association
  • All applications for participation in Buckeye Premier must be received by the deadline dates established each season.
  • A complete application package MUST include:
    • Buckeye Premier “Application for Acceptance” completed in its entirety.
    • A check in the amount of the established league entry fee made payable to Buckeye Premier.

** The club will pay the Buckeye league fee for all TFA teams.  Teams do not need to submit payment.  Please forward your application email confirmation to the Club Administrator.

The league reserves the right to refuse admittance to any team, with or without cause that submits an application based on the rules and procedures of Buckeye Premier and the evaluations made by the Board of Directors. In addition, acceptance may be denied to any team based upon the team's prior performance in the league, i.e. repeated failure to play matches as scheduled, failure to comply with league rules, failure to pay referees, failure to pay fines assessed by the league, excessive discipline issues, etc.

SCHEDULING MEETING

Once your team’s been accepted in the BPYSL, a representative from your team will be required to attend a league scheduling meeting. Notice, with times and dates for each age group as well as its location, will be provided via email to each team’s coach/administrator. Failure for a representative to attend this meeting will result in your team having no games scheduled for the season.

This is a self-scheduling meeting, meaning that each of the teams in a division will work together to create a schedule of games for the upcoming season. It is advisable that before entering the scheduling meeting, you make note of any known conflicts that will occur during the season so as not to schedule games on these dates. Examples of such conflicts are:  tournament dates, coach’s non-availability and player conflicts, such as dances, field trips and SAT/ACT tests.

At the conclusion of the scheduling meeting, a tentative schedule will be created and posted for each coach’s review. This is an opportunity for each coach to address scheduling errors and request changes to their scheduled games. At the end of the review period, final schedules will be posted, of which, it is the expectation that each coach adhere to.

 

PLAYER/COACH REGISTRATION

With the use of Stack Sports starting with the Fall 2018 season, team carding with the league is much more simplified as all leagues within Ohio South are also using Stack Sports.  Families now upload birth certificates and photos for each payer into their Stack Sports accounts.  Similarly, coaches must upload their photos and Concussion Certificates into their Stack Sports accounts.  Background checks (fka KidsSafe/Risk Management) are all electronically done now in Stack Sports.  The leagues all have access to these documents via Stack Sports.

Steps to get your team carded/rostered with BPYSL:

Step 1 Instruct families to upload photos and birth certificates into Stack Sports
Step 2 Instruct coaches to upload photos and Concussion Certificates into Stack Sports
Step 3 Collect the Out-of-State Permission to Play forms, if applicable
Step 4 Let the Club Administrator know when Steps 1-3 are completed and you believe your team is ready for carding
Step 5 Schedule a meeting with a Buckeye office to process your cards and roster once the Club Admin notifies you to do so

The Club Administrator will be monitoring your team for the above items and will reach out to you if anything is missing in Stack Sports for players or coaches.  The Club Administrator will notify you once all players and coaches have been verified by BPYSL in Stack Sports.  At that time, you should make an appointment with one of the Buckeye offices to get your cards and roster.  You should bring with you all of the Out-of-State Permission to Play forms.

Note that you should make the appointment at least 2 weeks prior to your first game.  Or, you can mail everything to the Worthington office.
