Player Registration
How much does it cost to Register as a Player in the VMSL?
 Player Registration costs $50 per player. This can be paid either at the time of Registration with your credit card, or paid by the Team from the Team Page after your registration is complete.
Can I be registered for more than 1 team?
 Unfortunately, this is disallowed by FIFA, CSA, BC Soccer and would result in a multiyear suspension if you were caught registered on two teams in sanctioned leagues. You are free to play on other teams in unsanctioned leagues however. A list of Sanctioned leagues, that you can only play in one of, can be found here: https://www.bcsoccer.net/directory-membership.
What if I have more than 1 login ID for VMSL?
 You MUST only use one login ID. The VMSL will soon be fining any player who creates multiple Logins. If you've ever had a VMSL Login ID, then you STILL have one, and that is the one that must be used. If you are not sure which to use... ask admin@vmslsoccer.com.
What is a Head Shot and why do we need one?
 A head shot (or photo of your head) is used for your VMSL digital Player ID Card. It's very important that this is clear, in color, and cropped tightly to your head. Referees have the ability to deny players from playing a match if that players head shot is not a clear representation of himself. Head shots MUST be in JPG format only (JPEG, GIP, PNG, etc... are all unacceptable)
Why does the player have an exclamation mark (!) beside his name?
 If an exclamation mark is beside a player's name on your team roster, that player has not yet completed the registration requirements. Once that player has submitted his SIGNED, player registration form, his Photo ID with Signature, uploaded an adequately cropped head shot to his VMSL profile, and Paid the registration fee... the registration will be flipped to "accepted" and the exclamation mark will go away. Players with incomplete registrations (i.e. with an exclamation mark) will NOT show up on game specific rosters nor on the digital Player ID cards and are not eligible to play.
Can I play in another league if I am a registered player in the VMSL?
 No. You may only play in a single, sanctioned league at one time as per FIFA, CSA, and BCSA. Players caught registered for more than a single sanctioned league in the same year will be subject to multi-year suspensions. A list of sanctioned leagues can be found at this link; https://www.bcsoccer.net/directory-membership
Can I register underaged players in the Master's Divisions?
 Yes, within the guidelines. For the 2018-2019 season, players born in 1983 and earlier will be allowed to play in the Over 35 Divisions. For the 2018-2019 season, players born in 1973 and older will be allowed to play in the Over 45 Divisions. For 2018-19, each team in the Over 35 Divisions will be allowed to register 3 underage players. These players must be born in 1984, 1985 or 1986. These players will be allowed to participate in regular League play as well as Cup play. However, they will not be allowed to participate in the Over 35 Provincial Cup competition. For 2018-19, each team in the Over 45 Divisions will be allowed to register up to 3 underage players born in 1974, 1975 or 1976. These players will be allowed to participate in regular League play as well as Cup play. However, they would not be allowed to participate in a potential new Over 45 Provincial Cup competition.
When is the deadline for Player Registration?
 Registration Deadline is March 31st.
I am a new player looking for a VMSL team to play on. How can I contact prospective teams?
 There is a VMSL "Notice Board" on the web site (vmslsoccer.com) where you can post questions and contact information, and view posts from others. Messages can be sent directly to specific team staff as well, by drilling down from the "Team" menu option, and selecting the Division/Team you 'd like to contact. Clicking on the small envelop icon by a Team Staff's name will open an email to that person directly.
