FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do I need to submit proof of age?2019-02-16T15:38:18+00:00

BC Soccer Association does not allow youth players to play in divisions below their age. Therefore SYSA needs proof of the player’s age the first time you register with our club. A photo copy of one of the following documents must be submitted with your registration.

  • Birth Certificate;
  • Baptismal Certificate;
  • Care Card;
  • Passport;
  • Citizenship card/papers;
  • Immigration papers;
  • Status Indian card; or
  • Sworn affidavit.

Please note, if you have previously submitted Proof of Age you do not need to resubmit.
