Policy 601-4 — Amateur Reinstatement

Section 1. A professional player may be reinstated as an amateur player as provided by this policy. 

Section 2. A professional player who is currently registered as a professional player with any club can
apply to the Federation to be reinstated as an amateur only with the permission of that club and
the Adult State Association or Professional League with which that club is affiliated.

Section 3. An application for reinstatement as an amateur must be made on the Federation reinstatement
form and both the completed form and the applicable fee must be filed with the Secretary
General of this Federation. 



Players must be eligible to play in the division they enter.
It is the team’s responsibility to obtain International Clearances and Amateur Status if so required.

Both processes are done through US Soccer, neither USASA, nor Region III are involved in this process.

Paperwork for International Clearances must be filed prior to the Regional Tournament.
Paperwork for Amateur Status must be filed and approved prior to the State tournament.
This process is not always a fast one. Please begin work on both International Clearances and Amateur Reinstatements.

Players may participate in the State and Region III tournament so long as they have applied for International Clearances.

Players must receive confirmed Amateur Status prior to participating in the State or Region III Tournament.
