Cal South Updated Travel Requirements:  

Due to the current and fluid circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Cal South has updated its Travel requirements and administrative process to facilitate Cal South affiliate clubs and leagues. Cal South will continue to evaluate the situation and make further adjustments as warranted.

Travel will only be approved and authorized for events which are sanctioned by US Soccer and/or its affiliate members.  Travel will only be authorized for those clubs; affiliates; teams; players; administrators; etc., who are properly registered with Cal South for the current registration year and who have demonstrated compliance with all Cal South requirements.

Requests for all travel including any non-Cal South and non-US Youth Soccer sanctioned events, must be submitted via the StackSports online system five (5) business days prior to departure.
