US Youth Soccer has strict guidelines to govern teams that travel out of state to attend tournaments and to address when a team wants to play in a tournament that has not been sanctioned by US Youth Soccer. LSA and all of our affiliated clubs must adhere to these guidelines.
IN-STATE US YOUTH SOCCER SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT
If the tournament to which your team wants to travel is in Louisiana and is an LSA-sanctioned tournament, your team is free to attend the tournament and use its LSA roster and player passes.
OUT OF STATE US YOUTH SOCCER SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT
If the tournament to which your team wants to travel is outside Louisiana, but is a US Youth Soccer sanctioned tournament, the only requirement is to complete the Region III Interregional Travel Notice in GotSport.

Your team is free to use your LSA roster and player passes at any US Youth Soccer sanctioned tournament.
TOURNAMENTS NOT SANCTIONED BY US YOUTH SOCCER
Teams traveling out of state to a tournament that is not sanctioned by US Youth Soccer shall not seek travel approval from LSA for such events and shall not play with the same LSA and US Youth Soccer benefits as if the tournament were sanctioned by US Youth Soccer. US Youth Soccer Travel Policy prohibits teams participating in a non-US Youth Soccer sanctioned event from using either their US Youth Soccer roster or player passes. Teams traveling to such a tournament therefore must create an alternate team roster and alternate player passes.
