Players are allowed to "play up" to the next higher age group but any player who is considering this should read the FAQ page for details on our policy. In particular, players who wish to play up should register for the higher age group. For most players the club recommends against playing up. 

The 9U age group is run slightly differently from the others since it is the first year of Travel soccer.  Please see the 9U page for more information. 

Registration is currently a two-step process:

  1. Read the FAQ page of our website
  2. Register online

Returning players may be wondering about the physical registration forms that we typically collect at the same time as online registration. New Jersey Youth Soccer is moving to an online system for uploading these forms and we do not yet have the full details for how the procedure will work.  We will post additional information when we know more.  

Online Registration: 

  1. On the Home Page click on the "Register Online" or "Register Now" buttons. 
  2. Click on the "Begin Registration" button under the appropriate program (e.g. "2017/2018 11U Girls Travel").
  3. If you are new to Chatham United and do not already have an account on the website, you will be asked to create an account and enter parent information. If you already have an account you will be asked to log in. 
  4. Fill in the details for the participating player. In particular, please check that the player record contains an email address. Although the system links parent records with player records, it is helpful for the club if every player record has a contact email address. 
  5. Answer the registration questions and acknowledge the waivers. 
  6. Pay the registration fee of $320.  This includes the $290 season Club Fee and the $30 nonrefundable Tryout Fee. As noted on the FAQ page, additional Team Fees to be paid later in the season also apply.

We are using paypal to collect the registration fees.  Please note that if paypal recognizes your email or credit card number as being linked to a paypal account then (depending on your paypal account security settings) you might be asked to login to paypal to complete the payment.

One of the registration questions asks if you would be willing to donate $15 towards the cost of new goals. Please see the FAQ page for more information on why we are making this request.

Please note that the registrations for the 14U and 15U age groups are combined. 

This year the deadline for requesting refunds is April 28, 2017 for the 9U age group and May 19, 2017 for 10U-15U. Please see the FAQ page for our full refund policy.  In particular, please note that these deadlines are for player-initiated withdrawal from the program. Any player that tries out but is not placed on a team will receive a refund of the registration fee (minus the $30 Tryout Fee), even though team announcements are after the refund deadline. 

Physical Forms Required for Travel Players (9U to 15U): 

Registration for Travel soccer also includes the submission of the following forms.

1)  NJYS Membership Form
2)  Medical Release Form 
3)  SAGE (Sportsmanship Pledge)    
4)  Copy of Birth Certificate
5)  1" x 1" GLOSSY COLOR photo of player (MUST BE ON PHOTO PAPER). Please be sure to write your child's name and age group (e.g. 10U) on the back of the photo. 

For 2017/18 New Jersey Youth Soccer is moving to an online system for uploading these forms and we do not yet have the full details for how the procedure will work.  We will post additional information on how to submit these forms when we know more. Update (April 4). Please note that we will *not* be asking for the physical forms prior to the April 6 registration deadline.  The April 6 deadline is for online registration and payment only.
