These will be used not only for league play, but tournaments often require having these on hand to play. Please double check your roster and ensure you have everyone's medical form. Once collected, they should be filed for emergency use (in Team Binder).Often this is just done once a year in the beginning of the season, but be sure to continue to check to make sure your file is up to date with any new player additions to the team roster.US Youth Soccer Medical Form Appoint Team CoordinatorsWhile you act as the liaison between the coach and the team parents, you don't need to do it all by yourself!
