Travel Outside PA West Soccer
Friendlies, Tournaments and Other Affiliated Games
The Youth Board has delegated authority to the State Office, State Registrar, or Youth Division President to approve all travel permits/notification for travel outside PA West Soccer's designated geographic boundaries for tournament, exhibitions (friendlies), and any other nationally sanctioned leagues.
The coach or manager is responsible for securing a travel permit/notification if required prior to leaving the boundaries of PA West Soccer.
Travel to tournaments hosted by PA West Soccer member clubs or other National State Associations (US Youth Soccer affiliated) require only the PA West Soccer Travel Notification be submitted (see link below), unless the event requires a travel permit.
Travel to friendlies or exhibition games in Region 1 (except New Jersey and Connecticut) require email notification.
Travel to participate in tournaments, leagues, friendlies, or exhibition games of other USSF members require permission from the State Office after tournament, league, friendly, or exhibition game rules have been received. In some cases, travel to these events will not be covered by the PA West Soccer medical or liability insurance. Teams have a responsibility to make their players and parents aware of non-coverage.
The fee schedule listed below applies to travel permits and notification; travel permits must be submitted for tournaments and friendlies with non-US Youth Soccer affiliated teams, events sanctioned by a US Youth Soccer affiliate that requires a travel permit, and all tournaments and friendlies sanctioned by New Jersey Youth Soccer and Connecticut Junior Youth Soccer. Please confirm with your destination event (if sanctioned by a State Association) whether there's a travel permit requirement.
