The rule is in place to keep players from jumping from team to team at any time the feeling strikes them. During the 30 day waiting period the player in question is absolutely PERMITTED to play soccer but for the team they are leaving ONLY until the 30 days is up. The clock starts at the eariest March 1st at this time of year or when the ALL the proper paperwork has been completely filled out and submitted to LIJSL. The rule is NOT in place to hurt the child. The following is a copy of an email contains questions and answers on this topic between a registra & LIJSL:


1. Spring transfer paperwork will only be accepted as of March 1 or after, then a 30 day waiting period so paperwork clears. (can I submit a couple days earlier understanding it's stamp will still be March 1?) Not to early, but yes we will date it March 1st

2. Paperwork includes Transfer Player Request Form, signed by me (new club registrar), signed by parent and reason for leaving, an Add/Delete form, Parent Signature Form?,and a $50.00 transfer fee to LIJSL. Also need new player pass and the fee is now $100

Is it the players parent responsibility to get his old clubs to sign this form or do you mail it to them to sign? Also, if we bring this form to you on 3/1 unsigned by their old club, the date that the 30 day wait starts is when we submit, regardless when they get the paperwork back to you, correct? We mail the form to the club the player is leaving and yes the 30 day wait starts from the day you bring in all the paperwork complete

3. State Cup. Rosters freeze March 23, and this team should have a game March 30th, Round 1 Open Cup. Will this player be eligible to roster at the time the roster freezes? If so, can they play 3/30 or no? If the paperwork comes in on March 1st we will add the player to the new team roster so the player can be added to the state cup roster most likely the coach will have to amend his roster online at the ENY soccer website and he would get a new approved roster, when you bring in the paperwork mention that the player needs to go on the state cup roster. As far as releasing the pass for play on 3/30 thats up to the league registrar

I hope this helps answer some of your questions

Time between fall and spring season is more than 30 days, so no problem there. During the season you must wait 30 days to prevent players randomly jumping from team to team while league games / Waldbaums Cup games and State Cup games are going on.

Time between seasons is more the 30 days you are correct BUT if the parents registered with a team by signing the parent signature form and all the team paperwork was submitted then the Transfer situation is required

Just as a correction to the above post. State Cup Rosteres were frozen as of Firday, March 21st. Unless a U-19 team no noe can add another player now for State Cup.

This is a great example of a rule with good intent being employed improperly by LIJ.
Sure, it's meant to protect and stabilize the teams and rosters, but it can back-fire on the team a player is leaving if you play it strictly by the rules. A player is told that the 30 day no-play penalty begins on March First, no matter when you inform the team they are leaving. This does not provide any incentive for the player to notify their old team ASAP about the decision to leave...just plain dumb!
This can make it much rougher on the team being left because they could be facing a roster problem in March as opposed to January or February. A player being considerate, by disclosing plans to leave, can be open for negative backlash and cold shoulder treatment. They can just as easily say nothing until March, since the 30 day count doesn't start until then!
Wouldn't it be more effective to have the 30 days start upon completion of paperwork?
Does the current rule really do anything to stop players from going if that's what they want to do?

How about this rule stay with the tea myou sign up with for the WHOLE year. Changes should only be allowed due to special circumstances and only very few where it is decided by a review board. What goes out on Long Island and elsewhere is just nonsense.

There have been some true statements and some half-kinda-true statements in this thread on the Fall-to-Spring transfer and the 30-day sit-out period. Let's get some of the facts on the table.

If your son or daughter played for Team A in the Fall season and wants to now play for Team B in the Spring season, whether you are subjected to a sitout period is all about when you left Team A.

[1] November and December : If you wrote to the Team A coach and requested in writing a release from Team A in November or December prior to the Spring season sign-up (usually first week of January), you should have been dropped from Team A's roster. Coaches cannot retain players against their will. This would allow you to join Team B without penalty during the regular sign-up period.

[2] First Week of January : If the Team A coach presented a roster to LIJSL during the January Spring season sign-up which included your son or daughter, you are now committed on Team A. Period - there is nothing that Team B or an agreement between Team A and Team B can do to change this. The transfer window is closed and you are subject to a 30-day sitout and everything that follows. If your child was signed-up without your permission, remember that you as the parent MUST have signed the parent signature sheet authorizing your child to be on the team.

[3] Mid-January Until End-February : After the team sign-up, if you want to be dropped from Team A and join Team B, your transfer paperwork is "frozen" until March 1st. Basically, LIJSL is busy processing schedules and such between the January sign-up and end-February - thus, the "frozen" period. This "frozen" window does not need to exist, but it does to enforce the sign-up discipline.

[4] March : Once the processing window opens on March 1st, you can be added to Team B but will only receive your player pass after 30 days. Hence, if you efficiently process your paperwork on March 1st, March 30th is the first day on which you can obtain the player pass.

LIGHTEN UP COACH!!...it's not my fault you have problems with your squad.
Circumstances that drove my kid away from the team are none of your business so just except that they exist and your commentary about other peoples state of affairs has very limited vision or value!

BoardLord I hear you but when a situation arises, and you know your kid needs to get away from a dysfunctional environment, no matter what the intent may be, you make your move when you can. Would anyone have their kid quit a team without an exit plan just so they can say we finished the year before leaving? When the opportunity presents itself and you know it's in your kids best interest...you go. Trying to beg LIJ for review and approval becomes secondary even though your child has to suffer the sit-out period and still pay the transfer fees! What happens is the innocent get punished for doing what must be done...

No I will not lighten up. Except in rare instances where a coach is abusive or child is in a very bad situation; most kids run and go because of parents, and child looking for greener pastures. I am not refusing all cases but for the most part stay w/ your team and fulfill obligations for the year. Then if you; oh excuse me your child want to change teams; then be my guest and go. Most transfers are done I think for that reason and what are you teaching your kid ? When things don't go your way or turnout how you planned you leave. Yes, great life lessons thru sports.

The process was as described earlier. As for fairness, that is in the eye of the beholder, but that is how the transfer process is administered. This ruling sits between the Travel Registration commmittee chairperson and the Games committee.

Just to come back to your original posting, AllSoccer, if the transfer was requested after the January team sign-up window, the agreement between the two teams on the transfer is inconsequential. The clock on the 30-day sitout period starts when your new team filed the complete package of "add player" paperwork and cannot start before March 1st.

As an example, if you transferred from Team A to Team B today and got all of the drop paperwork from Team A and all of the add paperwork from Team B processed today, March 24th, the pass would be given back to the Team B coach on April 24th. Your son/daughter would be ineligible for league competition until April 24th.

No child should remain in a bad situation. That said, the bad situation that existed in January after the transfer window probably was just as bad in December. The only difference is when the parent decided to act. The fee and sitout period are strictly due to a late decision to move.

Your timeline is correct but bear in mind that finally giving up on a bad situation is one hurdle to go over. Then comes the next hurdle of having to find a good situation that your child likes and you are comfortable with. It's not like running to the store and picking out new cleats...this is not a decision or move to take lightly or that we ever thought we would be having to make.
And to the other comments from COACH...please give me a break with this 'middle of the year' crap. There is Fall Season and Spring Season...so what if it's rolled into a 'League' year for the sake of someones paperwork. Don't the 'All Mighty' alignments and standings change in mid-season? My kid knows how to complete a job and follow through on a commitment so worry about bringing up your own kid not mine!

Ok then let have it both ways if I as a coach don't want your kid after the FALL season; I can tell the kid get lost lets have it both ways then. What goes on in LONG ISLAND; and elsewhere is just nonsense. I am sorry disagree with your point lessons are taught at school, sports and home. As a coach or a good one it is that we teach life lesson thru sports, and be fair to all players on the team. Oh, I forgot yours is special and rules need not apply.

Don't you already have enough power on your coach trip? "Playing time will be be determined by MY opinion of every kids ability and potential as I see it."...sound like something you may have said? Are you really so good that you're able to know where every kids talents will peak or plateau by the time they start travel? Now I'm really impressed.
Coaches don't need any more control over the children they already have the privilege of coaching...and by the way, my kid is special just like yours and every other kid I ever coached! Tough concept for some egos to handle, isn't it!!!

The transfer rule is simple. It protects an existing team from falling apart right before the season starts. As a parent you should know if your child is happy or not on his/her team by November. You then don't re-signup for that team. You let the coach know you will not be back in the spring. Both sides have time to find another team or player. The LIJS season ends in mid November and you have till Jan 1st to make this decision without a penalty, that is definitely enough time. And remember as in everything "The grass isn't always greener on the other side""

You then don't re-signup for that team. You let the coach know you will not be back in the spring. Both sides have time to find another team or player. The LIJS season ends in mid November and you have till Jan 1st to make this decision without a penalty, that is definitely enough time. And remember as in everything "The grass isn't always greener on the other side""
While BOTN Industries went through the entire rule book on dates, this poster has done a terrific job summarizing why the rule exists, the November end of season to January 1st period, and your role as a parent. Thank you for the contribution.

Great summary & poster is correct 100%...as I saw & experienced this exact situation this past Season. Parents (oops, I mean players) went to "greener" pastures (time will tell), and we were able to have more ample time to find players to fill roster.

BoardLord I hear you but when a situation arises, and you know your kid needs to get away from a dysfunctional environment, no matter what the intent may be, you make your move when you can. Would anyone have their kid quit a team without an exit plan just so they can say we finished the year before leaving? When the opportunity presents itself and you know it's in your kids best interest...you go. Trying to beg LIJ for review and approval becomes secondary even though your child has to suffer the sit-out period and still pay the transfer fees! What happens is the innocent get punished for doing what must be done...
No child should remain in a bad situation. That said, the bad situation that existed in January after the transfer window probably was just as bad in December. The only difference is when the parent decided to act. The fee and sitout period are strictly due to a late decision to move.


Your timeline is correct but bear in mind that finally giving up on a bad situation is one hurdle to go over. Then comes the next hurdle of having to find a good situation that your child likes and you are comfortable with. It's not like running to the store and picking out new cleats...this is not a decision or move to take lightly or that we ever thought we would be having to make.
And to the other comments from COACH...please give me a break with this 'middle of the year' crap. There is Fall Season and Spring Season...so what if it's rolled into a 'League' year for the sake of someones paperwork. Don't the 'All Mighty' alignments and standings change in mid-season? My kid knows how to complete a job and follow through on a commitment so worry about bringing up your own kid not mine!



Ok then let have it both ways if I as a coach don't want your kid after the FALL season; I can tell the kid get lost lets have it both ways then. What goes on in LONG ISLAND; and elsewhere is just nonsense. I am sorry disagree with your point lessons are taught at school, sports and home. As a coach or a good one it is that we teach life lesson thru sports, and be fair to all players on the team. Oh, I forgot yours is special and rules need not apply.
Thats exactly what I told the parent pretending to be a coach who are a dime a dozen in this league.Your here to teach and train not to stroke your ego at a chilkds expense high on their power kick or to break a childs confidense which many have down to a science yet they never played soccer as children themselve and have very little to offer experience wise on the pitch.Oh they had older siblings played and will now attempt to biuld a teram around their child after reading the [****] soccer lesson book.The only ones recieving that special treatment is the coaches kid surrounded with better athletes. Its not the parents and their children ruining this game its the parent coaches who wouldn't know an objective thought if it hit them in the head..

Yes, generally speaking this is simple to understand...but to my original point it leaves open the possibility that an unhappy player leaving a team after they re-signed (for the simple reason that 'the bad you know' may seem like the only option) may choose not to disclose the decision until they have to, which would cost the old team a month or two in the search for new players. Am I the only one seeing the signifigance of this detail? It seems clear to me that it would benefit the old team to have as much notice as possible regardless of whether or not it was after re-signing? As it stands now, the player will lose the 30 days starting March 1st, either way, and the old team can be set back 2 months. That's the only point I was trying to make. Perhaps it's a sounds like a small detail but it can have unwanted side effects.
