Registration Help

How To Register:

Registration System Help:

Please reach out to the SportsConnect Help Desk using the info below to troubleshoot any registration issues within the program.

SportsConnect Support Help Line: 866-258-3303

Parent Support Help Ticket Submission Link: https://stacksportsportal.force.com/helpcenter/s/contactsupport?b=0011T00002R7RGIQA3

Paperwork Requirements/Out-of-Town Waiver Process:

All players in U6 & U8 must have a birth date verification and current headshot photo on file.

Please make sure to upload a birth certificate or passport for their birth date verification and a front facing headshot of your player with a solid colored background for their photo.

ECY regulations require us to check for additional documentation on all players in G4 - G12. All players must supply a copy of their most recent report card or progress report to verify their current grade level (which in turn will verify the grade level they entered this past September 2020).

If the player lives in Methuen but attends school in another city or district the player will also need a proof of residency which can be a utility bill with the guardians name and address within Methuen listed.

The Town League can only accept players that either live in Methuen or attend a school in Methuen. However, waivers can be granted for players that do not qualify under either criteria on a case-by-case basis by their home city.

To request a waiver, please reach out to your local town's soccer program for permission. Upon obtaining permission, please request for a waiver to be emailed to our Methuen Soccer Registrar, Ann Shapiro at registrar@methuensoccer.org, from your town soccer program's President or Town Travel Director.

Practice and Game Day Equipment
For Practices and Game Day, all Soccer Players are required to have:

Shin Guards

Shin Guards are required. Although, we recommend families do not purchase the shin guards with socks attached as team soccer socks are included with your uniform kit.

Cleats

These MUST be soccer cleats without metal! Football, Baseball or any other sport cleats are not allowed on our fields). Players can also wear Sneakers with flat bottoms and no rough edges, however your child may not get a good grip on the fields and we therefore highly recommend the use of soccer cleats.

Uniform Shirt, Team Socks and Uniform Shorts

Town League - Team colors are chosen by the Director.

Ball
