How Do I check Players In?

Arlington API League (Competitive U11-U19), Academy (U7-U10) & Recreational (U09-U19) VIRTUAL PLAYER CHECK IN

Please be advised of the following as we start our Spring Season:

  • During the first two weeks of competitive league, teams might be finalizing their uniforms. All jerseys MUST have permanent numbers. Taped numbers are NOT accepted. Referees need to enforce this very important rule of competition.

  • DO NOT ADD or REQUEST A PLAYER TO BE WRITTEN ON ROSTER! NO EXCEPTIONS! Referees cannot handwrite a player onto the roster. Period the end.

  • Check-in will be handled electronically. All competitive (U11-U19), Academy (U7-U10) and Recreational (U9-U19) players must be CORRECTLY IDENTIFIED through the GOT SOCCER app on a smartphone or tablet device. Please place a checkmark on the game roster once you have verified their picture, jersey number and name.

  • If for some reason the GOT SOCCER app cannot be opened, please complete check-in by calling out jersey number and having the player identify themselves with their name. Then, please comment in the notes section which team was unable to be checked in virtually.

  • If player jersey # is different than what is on the game day roster please clearly place the correct # next to players name this is the ONLY change approved by API.

  • If a player arrives after the game has started, the player along with their team manager/coach needs to locate a board member on duty to approve the player/jersey number.
  • Once the board member has verified the player, the board member will return to the field and advise the referee crew with a paper pass approval if the player is eligible to participate.

  • If a player enters the field as a substitute and has not followed the proper check-in procedure, they will need to be removed from the field immediately until they are properly checked in and approved by a board member.
