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.

TEAM DECLARATION

Before your team can be eligible for the season’s league or tournament play, you must create your team’s roster and player cards. Your team’s roster and cards are created using the BPYSL On-Line player and coach registration system. Once all of your documentation is in order, you will need to drop your packet off at one of the Buckeye offices for approval.

Once your team is accepted into the league, you will receive an email with the club login and password to the online registration system. To declare your team in the registration system, go to www.buckeyepremier.com and click on the On-line Player and Coach Registration link.  Once there, choose the Team Declaration link. Choose the Total Futbol Academy from the pull down in the first box. Enter the club code and password that was given to you and click Continue. On the next page, click on Team Registration for the current season and on the next screen click Begin Team Registration. You will need to complete all sections that are marked with a red asterisk and submit the information you provided. It is highly recommended that you provide information for a team contact as well as the coach. Once the information is submitted, both the coach and the team contact will be emailed your team number and your team password. Do not lose this - you may need it again during the season.
