Application Review Process
After all information is received and reviewed by the Indiana Soccer staff, the club application is presented to the Executive Committee of the Indiana Soccer Board of Directors for discussion and approval. A club seeking affiliation is expected to begin the process of incorporating and filing for not-for-profit status within a reasonable length of time if it has not already been issued.
Once approved, the new club is given an official “Club Number” and may then begin the process of registering players and teams. No payment is due until the club begins to register players. At that time, the club will pay a per player registration fee.
