Player Release and Transfer

After a player commits to a team and completes registration with North Metro Soccer, the player is considered registered to the Club. Each player is bound to the Club for the entire seasonal year for competitive teams and full year registrations, which runs from August 1 of one year through July 31 of the following year. Each family is obligated to the full financial commitment.

North Metro will not approve transfer requests from players looking to leave the top team at each age group (both boys and girls) unless the player will be playing on a team at a higher ability level or is moving out of the area reasonably served North Metro. The Competitive Committee shall retain the right to recommend approval of a release should there be extenuating circumstances.


For all other players not placed on top teams of each age group (boys and girls) NMSA will not consider a request for a release from the program during the soccer year until that player has paid his/her entire financial obligations to the Club and team for the soccer year. If approved, all fees for the entire seasonal year must be paid in full before the release can be authorized. This will include a reasonable estimate for coach travel expenses, any other fees that might be due after the player has transferred from the team as well as a $50 club-processing fee. Players receiving financial assistance will not be released during the seasonal year unless they pay the full expenses associated with the year, including any portion of granted assistance.
