Why do I have to register for EMSA Soccer Portal and Team Snap?

The EMSA Soccer Portal is used to register the player with EMSA Main and our governing body in order to build team rosters and apply for player insurance, this is also where parent's will sign applicable disclosure and waivers pertaining to playing with EMSA.

Team Snap is a platform the league will use to communicate to teams, parents and player as well as contact trace and provide health checks as required to participate in Mini Leagues. Registration here also removes the need for line ups at registration sessions as all confirming documentation and payment can be submitted through these forms electronically.
