Indoor Season Enabled in OSCAR for 2019-2020

OSCAR - 2019 - 2020 Indoor Governing Season has now been enabled.

Academies and Clubs may now begin submitting Indoor registration data into a new governing season titled “2019 - 2020 Indoor Season.”

What’s new for the Indoor Season?

For the Indoor season, Academies and Clubs will submit their registration data either by import or SE Sync into the new governing season “2019 - 2020 Indoor Season,” which is found on the Governing Seasons tab of OSCAR.

The division options have been revised to account for Indoor, including selection options for Futsal. Max roster size and required approvals for players and staff are enabled for each division.

Age warnings have been implemented into OSCAR, which will identify and flag active players within the roster that do not fit the defined age category. In the event that a player is rostered to a team in which the team’s division does not meet their birth date requirement, a warning will appear for the player indicating that the player does not meet the age requirement.

Senior age divisions that indicate an “over XX” division do not currently flag an age warning – these divisions will be addressed in the coming months.

Explaining the Profile Claiming Process (April 8, 2019)

Do your parents have questions on what profile claiming means?

Share this document to explain the process.

Additional Benefits for Profile Claiming

  • Access and awareness to personal information within SportsEngine
  • Ability to update address and phone number so that information is up to date
  • Ability for clubs and/or districts to message
  • There also is the potential for duplication of profiles and further SEOS ID #'s. If a profile is unclaimed and that player is registered with another club, if the email is different, the system could consider this a duplicate.
