E-TRAVEL PROCEDURES
 
An individual associated with the team as a coach or manager with access to the team account can access the E-Travel link on the team page using their login and password. If for some reason, your team is not set up, or, the coach or manager does not have a login your local Club or Association Registrar can set up the team and/or assign a login and password.
 
Teams traveling to tournaments and events outside of South Texas must submit a travel notification via the GotSoccer e-Travel process prior to the date of travel.
 
E-Travel requests processed via GotSoccer require that the payment information be processed / updated by the State Office staff and the travel document “generated” BEFORE the E-Travel document can be accessed or printed. E-Travel processing is no longer immediate as in the past so you need to plan ahead and allow 1-2 business days for processing.
Travel rosters are also no longer generated. Guest player names and ID numbers must be listed on the E-Travel application at that time the E-Travel application is submitted.  Changes to the Guest Players listed are not allowed and additional Guest Players cannot be added once the E-Travel application submitted.   
In the event they are necessary, it is recommended that teams traveling have the following documents with them and available for inspection at check-in:
 
  • E-Travel generated Travel Document
  • Player Cards / Coach Cards  
  • Approved USYS Inter-State Permission form for Guest Players from outside South Texas Youth Soccer
  • Medical Release Forms as required by the host event
  • Any other documents or forms required by the host event
As in the past, the State Office Staff will not verify the information submitted prior to the travel occurring and it is the responsibility of the team, coach, and manager to comply with the rules and guidelines of South Texas Youth Soccer, US Youth Soccer, the US Soccer Federation, or those of the State Association or tournament to which you are traveling. Failure to comply with the published rules and guidelines may result in sanctions, fines or both being assessed to the team, players and/or team officials.
 


Important Notes:

STYSA provided liability and player accident insurance is not in effect for teams, players, or coaches traveling to or participating in non-USYS sanctioned tournaments, games, or events (i.e.US Club, AYSO, SAY, etc.) It is the responsibility of the Coach or Manager to advise the players and their parents that STYSA insurance is not in effect for these types of tournaments, games, or events.

The e-Travel Notification process is not applicable for travel outside of the United States (including to Canada and Mexico).

Travel to events, tournaments, or games outside of the United States requires that the standard Application for Foreign Travel be submitted to the State Office at least 6 weeks prior to the date of departure to allow sufficient time for processing and receiving approval by the US Soccer Federation.

Note: The US Soccer Federation does NOT notify the State Office when, or if, a request for foreign travel is approved or denied and it is the responsibility of the Coach or Manager to follow-up and make sure that they have all the proper approvals in hand prior to leaving the country.
