SYFA Registration and Community Club Registration

All officials and players must be registered on the SYFA Registration system.

A Club must register each age group playing ESSDA Football as a separate SYFA Club on the SYFA Registration system. It does not matter how many teams/players you have, each age group requires only one SYFA Club registration.
When playing eleven a side football, each team must have its own SYFA Club registration.

If at a single age group, a club plays in more than one association, that age group will require a second SYFA Club registration - one for each association.

Players cannot normally play for more than one SYFA Club, except when

            A Club has multiple SYFA Club registrations at the same age groups
AND   The teams play on different days in the different associations
AND    No player plays for more than one team in any week
AND    The player is registered using a Small Sided Second Team Registration Form to the second team.

Likewise, a coach or official cannot be registered to more than one SYFA Club. Each age group must have its own list of coaches, First Aiders and Child Protection Officer.
PVG Scheme membership and insurance cover does not extend to a second age group.

An exception to the restriction on coaches and officials is given to SYFA Community Clubs. To become an SYFA Community Club, a separate SYFA Community Club application and fee is required. Application is via the SYFA Registration system

If your club is part of a registered SYFA Community Club other members listed as officials of the SYFA Community Club application are free to act for or on behalf of the club. This helps the club function especially during an illness to officials, holiday periods or simply officials being unavailable.

SYFA Community Club membership links the SYFA Club age groups together under one umbrella. See SYFA Community Club newsletter for details.

SYFA Community Club is not the same as SFA Quality Mark Community Club status.

You can check your ESSDA / SYFA registration status using the ESSDA Registration page.
