It’s a great opportunity for ERSDA coaches, through support from East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, who will cover the costs of the event to ensure that its free to access for all grassroots coaches, to see this programme locally.

Tuesday 29 January 2019 - 00:00:00 in General

Only THREE WEEKS left to register to play
Just a note to say that there are now only three weeks left to register with ERSDA for the start of the 2019 session on 2nd March given that fixtures will be issued at the player pathway meeting the week before and the fixtures themselves compiled the week before that. 

Please note the following if you intend to register with ERSDA:- 
1) ERSDA registration needs to be done by Sunday, 17th February 2019 for inclusion in the fixtures.
 2) SYFA registration needs to be complete by the same date. 
3) If PVG's are required then it is critical that you submit your registrations now as it is taking up to three weeks to process PVG's.   
4) Ideally, completed ERSDA forms to be sent to me by e-mail or by post to the address below. 

See blank ERSDA registration form and ERSDA registration criteria 2019 in 'documents' (one club page per club at an age group, one team page required for each team being entered (following the criteria) , additional coaches page completed as required. 

Any issues, let me know.

Registration guidelines for 2019
Friday 21 December 2018 - 00:00:00 in General

Registration guidelines for 2019
Good Afternoon,   Shown in the documents section and below are the registration guidelines for the 2019 season    (small-sided games). Please ensure to read these carefully and pass onto any other relevant officials at your club who may be involved in the registration process. Also attached are guides on amending system user permissions and booking onto the e-learning course.If your club/league is not involved with development football, you can ignore this email. 
• League registration for the 2019 season is now open. 
• Club registration for the 2019 season opens on 22nd December 2018.                                                                                          
• Team registration for the 2019 season open on 3rd January 2019. 
• Teams will not be able to register until their club has successfully completed their 2019 membership. • All registrations must be completed via the SFA Live system 
• Club membership is a simple process and is free of charge. 

Club secretaries should check their list of officials and admin contacts are up to date (removing anyone who is no longer with the club). They should then go to the Membership tab to read and acknowledge the rules of membership and finish their registration. 

• On the 31st December 2018, all team officials will be removed from their respective teams and placed onto a list of club officials. It will then be the responsibility of the club secretary to place team secretaries into their respective teams and ensure they have full access to their team so that they in turn can select the required team officials. 
• ‘Team Official’ is no longer an accepted role on the system and therefore anyone listed as such should be amended to an accepted role. 
• A guide on how to check and change System User permissions is attached. This should be consulted when altering officials’ permissions.
 It will not be possible to place any officials who do not have PVGs with the SYFA into teams. 
• It will not be possible to place any officials who have not completed the e-learning course ‘Children's Wellbeing in Scottish Football’ or PVG into teams. 
• Any individuals who have not completed the e-learning course and require help on how to do so should go to the Child Protection section of the SYFA website (www.scottishyouthfa.co.uk) and read the information under ‘SYFA Online Protection Training’. A guide is also attached to this email. 
• Any officials experiencing technical difficulties with the online course itself (i.e. password problems or issues on completion) should email Cwsfonlinesupport@scottishfa.co.uk with their name, date of birth and a brief description of the problem. 

Kind regards, Florence Witherow,National Secretary Scottish Youth FA.
