A Player’s Right to Choose

The policy of the Ohio South Youth Soccer Association is that players have a right to choose which soccer club they play for each seasonal year. The “Player’s Right to Choose” document basically let’s players know that they should feel free to┬ácheck out their options during the tryout period each May.

These two sections are relevant for players that may want to consider switching clubs after the fall season:

18.4 Players have the right to transfer during the seasonal year (subject to league and OSYSA transfers Bylaws and OSYSA State Cup roster requirements). Clubs, teams or association of teams may not initiate contact with a player concerning a transfer. A player, if he/she has an interest, may elect to contact another team. Once contact has been made by a player, the team may have contact with that player.
18.5 If a player submits an OSYSA Voluntary Quit form or if a player transfers prior to the first game of the seasonal year for that team, the team is strongly encouraged to make a fair and appropriate pro-rata return of any fees paid based on expenses already incurred or paid by the team for the benefit of the team.
