TCSL introduced the Club Pass to Minnesota competitions in 2017 in order for clubs to have more say and flexibility in how they operate both their Player Development philosophy and their team roster set up.
In order to uphold TCSL values we strongly believe the following situations justify the use of the Club Pass model.
- Play up or down depending on the player and team situation
- Club Focus. Freedom of player movement that encourages a club model over a team specific model
- Tournament Rosters. Easy movement of players to supplement rosters for events where players may be missing or to simply help carry the extra match load amongst more players
- Reward and Recognition. Allowing players opportunity to play at a higher level based on their efforts.
However, The Club Pass model should never be manipulated to:
- Win matches
- Allow players to simply “play extra matches”
- Replace whole teams due to schedule conflicts
In the Club involved league model we foster, we expect club leaders to uphold TCSL values regarding all decisions made that involve the Club Pass policy.
Player development and the player experience for all involved should be the main consideration when making decisions.
Any suspected abuse of the Club Pass Policy should be reported to TCSL league officials using the following form:
Both DOC’s will be made aware via this form and TCSL will loop in both clubs once the form is submitted (via email). TCSL expects good, honest, communication about the report.
