Academy Teams - U7 & U8 do not need player passes but must provide an official issued roster. Academy players may play in 2 squads for the same team if the team plays with a non-fixed roster and the players are registered as AYSA Academy players.  For example, Team Red has 15 players and splits into Team Red 1 and Team Red 2, (both teams must register in the tournament). A player may play for both Red 1 & Red 2, but their playtime must not exceed 80 minutes of soccer per day. U9 & U10 have frozen rosters and must only play on the team they are rostered for. No player may be rostered on more than one team.
