match card.  Away team should also print a copy in case of last minute

before the match to complete the roster, including Player 's full name,
jersey number and Cal North ID

5. Guest players must be clearly identified to the opposing team and the
match officials by handwriting them on the match card; including the guest
player's jersey number, Cal North ID number and full legal name.  Guest
Players may also be added using the "Add a Guest Player" function of

a)      "Add a Guest Player" function of GotSoccer does not guarantee that
that added player is eligible to guest, not does it automatically access
all eligible guest players.  It will only look at the pool in your club for
example, not your Registration League.

b)      Guest players added with "Add a Guest Player" function of GotSoccer
will have their ID# highlighted in Green and a (G) for guest added.

6. Guest players are NEVER added to the team's roster in the GotSoccer
account.  Only players on the Team Golden Rod may be listed on the Roster.

7. Both teams should bring the match card to ensure the rosters are
accurate. Home (3 copies ) Away (1 copy) is advised.

8.  The HOME team should check with the visiting team on arrival to see if
they need to add guest player information to the match card and is
responsible for handing the three updated Game Cards to the Center Referee.

9.  Players who are lined out on the Game Card are suspended and not
eligible to play in the game.

10.   At the completion of the game, the HOME and AWAY team officials, and
the Center Referee sign the Game Cards.  Each team is responsible for
ensuring they have a properly signed game card referencing the correct
score, guest players and send offs at the end of the game.

11.  Both Teams are responsible for keeping a copy of the game card until a
week after the season ends in case of discrepancy.


In order to enter a score you will need:

1.       The event ID number.

2.       The event PIN.

3.       The game Number.

This information is all printed on the Game Card.  You do not need to log
into your team account to report a score.

There are three ways to enter a score in the GotSoccer system:

1.        Using a smart phone or computer - (This is the fastest way). Go to
 www.gotsport.com/m  and look for the SCORING link.

2.        Scanning the  QR Code at the top right of the game card.

3.        Calling in on a phone - Call the "Phone-In Scores" number listed
on the match card.

 If a player or coach is sent off in a match that MUST be reported by the
team when entering the score.


CCSL Spring League is a developmental season. Runaway or blowout scores are
outside the spirit of the game and are discouraged by CCSL. Teams will have
one (1) point deducted from their standings for a goal differential greater
that seven (7).


Detailed instructions may be found on the Send-Off
 link listed under CCSL at the CalNorth  <http://calnorth.org>website.  If
a player or staff is sent off in a match both teams should report the send
off when reporting the match score to ensure the send off and subsequent
suspension is review in a timely manner.


Guest players may be used per the CalNorth Guest Player Policy (PIM 21-2
with the exceptions stated below.  PIM12-2 includes these provisions:

1.  The Guest Player must be rostered on a team within the same
registration league as the team on which the player will be guesting.  That
means the first FOUR digits of the Team ID on the passes must match.

2. The soccer age of the guest player must be the same soccer age or
younger than the age group of the team on which the player will be

3.  The credentials for the guest player must be from the same season as
those being used by the team on which the player will be guesting.

4.  The coach of the borrowing team must have in his/her possession the
player's approved member pass and the current CalNorth Membership Form
(Form 1601) for the guest player with the medical release and the hold
harmless section signed in original ink by the parent or guardian or by the
guest player if the players has reached eighteen (18) years of age.


1. The maximum number of guest players allowed is seven (7) per match for
U11 and older teams.

2. The maximum number of guest players allowed is five (5) per match for
U10 and younger teams.

3. A player may be on a Match Report (including guest play) for a maximum
of two matches per day.

4. Players may guest play on any team in any Division at their soccer age
or older in spring only.

Teams are reminded that Spring League is developmental, and standings do
not factor into Fall placement. Spring guest player rules are liberal to
allow for development, and to allow a team to field a full roster. Abuse of
liberal guest player rules through 'stacking' of teams in the interest of
winning may cause future spring rules to be modified.

If you are not sure if a player is eligible to guest, please contact the
League Director at CoastDirector at CalNorth.org for verification.
