CSAN will only issue player passes once the Affinity ELA or CSAN waiver has been verified.

_______________________________________

If a team/individual is unable to register on-line:  PAPER REGISTRATION

Paper registration will take longer to process than on-line so please try to get your materials turned in at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the season.

1. Each player needs to sign the Player Registration Form and the CSAN Release of Liability Form.

2. Each player needs to submit an orginial photo or from a color printer (Xerox'd copies will not be accepted).  The photo must be a forward facing headshot (no sun glasses or hat). Photos should be sized approximately 2" x 2" and taped to the square on the top right corner of the Player Registration Form.

3. Please submit (either via email or bringing into the CSAN office ) as many completed forms as possible at least two to three weeks prior to the start of the season (the earlier the better).

4. Please send only one check (or one credit card payment over the phone) for all of your players (e.g. 15 player forms @ $31.50 each = one check for $472.50). Do not send individual checks for each player.

The Affinity online registration system is not currently set up to handle dual registrations, drops or transfers so these items have will have to be made via a paper form that can either be emailed, mailed or brought to the CSAN office with the appropriate fee.  All forms can be found under the Registration tab at the top of the page.

 

Dual Player: Players who play on both an OPEN and an Over 35 team

Players who play in both the Open and O-35 division need to complete and sign the CSAN Multiple Player Registration form at the beginning of each fall season or the season they start to play on multiple teams.

Each player must have a player pass with the name of each team they are registered on. The fee for the secondary registration is $8. So players pay $31.50 for the Primary Team and $8 for the Secondary Team pass. 

The Affinity online registration system is not currently set up to handle dual registrations, drops or transfers so these items have will have to be made via a paper form that can either be emailed, mailed or brought to the CSAN office with the appropriate fee.  All forms can be found under the Registration tab at the top of the page.


Dropping and Transfering Players

Players who are transferring to your team from a team they played on in the Fall must complete the Transfer Player Registration form, which costs $4. The team they are leaving must complete and submit a Player Release Form, along with the old player pass and $4.

If a team needs to release a player and add a new one in that roster spot in the same week in order to stay under the roster maximum of 27 players, the team manager may call or email the CSAN office to let them know which player is being released. Once CSAN confirms that the player has been released, the team can register the new player online, and then the team manager needs to turn in the Player Release Form and fee to the CSAN office at the end of the week to pick up the new player's pass. Player releases and transfers are $4 each.

The Affinity online registration system is not currently set up to handle dual registrations, drops or transfers so these items have will have to be made via a paper form that can either be emailed, mailed or brought to the CSAN office with the appropriate fee.  All forms can be found under the Registration tab at the top of the page.

Injured Reserve

If necessary, a player can be placed on injured reserve with CSAN. This is done when a player is injured, and you want her to stay registered with your team, and not released.  To do this, send CSAN an email requesting that the player be placed on injured reserve, along with a doctors note.  CSAN will place the player on injured reserve and the team will be able to add another player to the roster if needed.  The player must remain on injured reserve for 30 days before they can be placed back on active status. 

Note: Keep the CSAN fees in mind when considering dropping or adding players. Dropping a player is $4, registering a new player is $31.50.  Since GGWSL has raised the roster count to 27 players, hopefully you'll be able to manage your team without dropping and adding players, and paying any additional fees.

Spring Registration

In the Spring, the only people who need to register are those players that are new to the League or past players who did not play the previous fall.
