NYSW Player Recruitment Best Practices

Over time, one of the issues that has been expressed to NYSWYSA from across our western NY footprint has been the question of ethical recruitment of players for soccer programs. 


NYSWYSA has researched various options for implementing recommended best practices for player recruitment. Options considered included a "required" NYSWYSA Policy, official calendar-based recruitment windows, or a "recommended" policy for NYSWYSA members to adopt. 


Having researched and considered these options, and the pros and cons of each, we concluded that providing our membership with a set of Recommended Player Recruitment Best Practices is the best approach. In the interests of keeping at the forefront each individual player's best interests and to promote ethical decorum amongst competing soccer programs, we hope that every NYSWYSA member will decide to adopt these recommended best practices.
