Travel Sanctioning

For questions and/or concerns regarding Travel Sanctioning, please contact Christine Donovan nwpsoccer@gmail.com

 

Anytime a team travels outside of Alberta to compete in a tournament or attend a training camp, they must complete a travel permit application.

 

Travel permits serve three main purposes:

  • They provide protection to the traveling team. Travel permits are only approved if the tournament is sanctioned by the associated Provincial, State or National Soccer Association. Restricting travel to tournaments not affiliated with a parent body reduces the risk to teams, as they know they are travelling to a real tournament with universal standards.
  • They provide protection to the tournament. By requiring a travel permit, tournament organizers know who will attend their event. Travel permits reduce the risk to tournament organizers ensuring the team and players are properly registered and in good standing with their league.
  • They provide protection to the players.  All players and team officials attending a sanctioned event in Alberta are covered under Alberta Soccer’s (ASA) insurance policy. Travel permits extend this coverage beyond Alberta’s borders for the duration of the tournament

 

Types of Travel Permits:

  • Canada

  • United States

  • International

  • Guest Player Request

Permits to Tournaments within Canada

       

Travel Permit Approval Process:

It is recommended that all travel permit applications be submitted at least (14) fourteen days prior to departure. Last minute applications can occasionally be accommodated, but are not always possible.  Tournaments will not permit a team compete without a signed travel permit application.

 

All travel permit applications should follow the approval process below:

  • All Required Forms (as above) and fees are submitted by the team or club to the District Association ( NWPSA)
  • The District will approve the Travel Permit and Roster and then send it to Alberta Soccer
  • Alberta Soccer will approve the permit and send it back to the District
  • If necessary the ASA will obtain permission from the Canadian Soccer Association before returning the approved permit to the District.
  • The ASA will forward all necessary documents to the insurance company for coverage
  • Once processed, the insurance company will send an insurance certificate. These certificates are not necessary for travel, but available upon request from the ASA.
  • The District will send the approved travel documents back to the team or club.
