E-Travel System

An E-Travel application must be completed by all teams attending an out of state event or a non-USYS sanctioned event.
Continue an application:

You will need to complete a Notification to Travel form anytime your team intends to play outside the state of North Carolina in a USYS sanctioned event. This includes tournaments, scrimmages, friendlies, or league play in another state.

This form is NOT to be used if the tournament  is NOT a USYS sanctioned tournament.  It is the responsibilty of the person completing NTT to confirm whether the tournament is USYS sanctioned!  If the incorrect form is completed, a new NTT must be completed and there is NO refund for incorrect notification.

The fee for a NTT Request is $10, but if the request is received the week of travel, the fee is $50. Please note that fees are calculated based upon when payment is made online or check is received at the NCYSA state Office.

Once the form is submitted and payment has been received, you will receive an email with instructions to print your form to present at your event.

If you are taking Guest Players outside of your association to your event, you may also complete the Guest Player roster here. As in the past, the Guest Player Roster must be signed by both coaches, red stamped by the releasing registrar, and submitted to the State office. It will not be returned. Your association registrar can help you with this process.

Please be sure to have your Host's information available before filling out the Notification to Travel form. The Permission to Host form can be found by viewing the following:

  1. The hosting state's website under Sanctioned Tournaments
  2. The tournament website under Documents/Team Check-in.

  • If you have chosen to pay by mailing a check, you will not be given access to your form for printing until after your payment is received and marked paid in the office. Allow extra time. 
  • If you are filling out ONLY a Guest Player Roster, no payment is needed and your form will be available for printing.
  • If you chose payment by check in error, please do not create a new application.  Use the link in the email you received when applying and make payment by credit card.
Guidelines for Attending NON-SANCTIONED US Youth Soccer (USYS) Competitions

Several years ago the majority of in-state and out-of-state tournaments were sanctioned by USYS. As a member of NCYSA you are also a member of USYS and USSF (United States Soccer Federation).

There are other soccer organizations that are members of the United States Soccer Federation, but are not members of US Youth Soccer.These organizations, AYSO, SAY, USSSA, and US Club, may offer competitions (tournaments or friendly games) that are sanctioned through their organization but not through US Youth Soccer.

If a team is attending a NON-USYS sanctioned tournament, within NC OR outside of NC, you MUST complete NTT to receive the Team Information Page. The Team Information Page is used in lieu of NCYSA passes, rosters and med waivers as NCYSA does not allow its passes, rosters, or med waivers to be used in a Non-USYS sanctioned tournament.  

BEFORE completing this, please confirm with coach that no additional players will be registered to your team. If you complete NTT and then add a player, you will be required to complete the process again with no refund for the first application.


Since there are many more tournament choices; your team should be aware of the following information:

  1. The use of NC Youth Soccer player passes, rosters and medical waivers is prohibited at non-NCYSA/USYS Sanctioned events.
  2. NCYSA Insurance and Liability Coverage applies to NCYSA/USYS sanctioned competitions only.
  3. If attending a non-sanctioned USYS Competition, (in-state or out-of-state) please make sure all players and parents are aware that the NCYSA insurance will not be in effect for this competition.
  4. Contact the hosting organization regarding insurance coverage for their event.
  5. If the non-sanctioned event is out-of-state, then NCYSA cannot approve a USYS Notification to Travel form, nor does the non-sanctioned event have the authority to require this approval since the event is not sanctioned by USYS.
  6. Always know who is hosting the competition. Approved or 'sanctioned' competitions should provide a form signed by an official of the hosting organization. This document is usually called an 'Application to Host a Toumament' and will list the name of the hosting organization.

The NCYSA website contains a list of the NCYSA/USYS sanctioned tournaments(s). When traveling to another state, please visit the state's website and click on tournaments to see if the state association has sanctioned the event.

If you have further questions regarding non-sanctioned competitions please contact Lyn Halstead, lyn@ncsoccer.org, at the NCYSA State Office.


There is a $15.00 administrative fee when requesting this information.
