GUEST PLAYER ALLOWANCE
The Iowa Soccer Rec Challenge Cup is targeted to and intended for regular-season rosters. If you need to add a Guest Player(s) in order for your team to enter, that is what the allowance is designed for. We understand that not all players or parents can commit to a full weekend of soccer. And we know that some regular-season rosters barely have enough players to field a team and need subs in order to play in a tournament.
Requested players must be currently registered with Iowa Soccer as RECREATIONAL players. SELECT level players are NOT allowed to participate in the Rec Challenge Cup.
You may use the Guest Player Allowance only AFTER
>>> You've asked all players on your team if they are available to play in the Rec Challenge Cup and some are not, or
>>> You have a small regular-season roster and would like to have extra players for substitution reasons.
Every attempt must be made to find guest players who are of like skill -- don't seek out 'ringers' -- that is not in the spirit of the allowance.
REGULAR-SEASON MAXIMUM ROSTER SIZES STILL APPLY -- YOU MAY NOT ADD GUEST PLAYERS SUCH THAT IT TAKES YOUR ROSTER OVER THE ALLOWABLE MAXIMUM.
Maximum roster sizes:
07U-08U = 6
09U-10U = 12
11U-12U = 16
13U-16U = 22 (18 game active)
Iowa Soccer officials will make final determinations on the eligibility of all requested Guest Players. Decisions are final.
Requests due by 11:59pm on Wednesday, June 2, 2021. Late requests not accepted.
