Regular-Season Rosters

North Puget Sound League Rosters

Crossfire Select is part of the North Puget Sound League. Before every home game in a season, Team Managers will need to fill out a North Puget Sound League roster. You'll need three copies to bring to each game: one for your team, one for the referee, and one for the opposing team. The referees will fill in the final score and return the rosters after the game.

Rules for Adding Guest Players:

You're able to add guest players to your roster during the regular season, but make sure to follow these rules:

  1. Note your team's maximum roster size before adding a guest player. (Note: If your regular goalkeeper is injured, you can use a player pass to add a substitute goalkeeper without increasing your roster total).
Age Level

Max Roster Size with Player Passes

U13+ (11 a side) 14
U11 & U12 (9 a side) 12
U10 (7 a side) 11
  1. Players from higher divisions cannot be added to your team. Player passes give guest players the opportunity to develop with your team. Added players are not intended to strengthen your team by bringing players with a higher skill level.
    • A person playing in the RCL qualifies as a lever higher than Gold & Silver Select teams.
    • A person playing up a year may not player pass back down to their age appropriate year.
  1. To obtain a player pass you must officially notify the league Director of Competition and get approval (NPSL Contact).

  2. Reach out to the opposing team's coach with a courtesy note, letting them know you are using a player pass according to the NPSL Rules Section 1.20
  3. The guest player's name and birthdate should be on the roster for the game. At check in, the player must have a valid USYS player card. Failure to have the player card may result in them not being able to participate.
