New Mexico Youth Soccer Association (NMYSA) is a member State Association for US Soccer and US Youth Soccer and subscribes to the US Soccer and US Youth Soccer Risk Management Programs. NMYSA collects specific information about youth players in order to conduct its youth soccer business of registering players; assigning them to teams; and authorizing participation in sanctioned tournaments, festivals, training activities ad programs. This information includes (but may not be limited to) legal name, address, phone, e-mail, birth date, gender, and parent/guardian contact information. 

The information collected by our registrars (entered into the secure server of the Sports Connect/Stack Sports player registration system), through direct web site registration (by parents/guardians or players through the Sports Connect system), or through the secure software portal (by players and/or parents/guardians) is only used to enable the youth players to be properly registered and authorized to participate in age-specific youth soccer activities and to facilitate coach and administrator contact with players within their assigned area of responsibility and for the purposes of membership with US Youth Soccer and US Soccer, the National Governing Bodies. 

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) about NMYSA registered players and their guardians is maintained on a secure server and is compartmentalized. Access by coaches and administrators to electronic forms of PII concerning players is by username- and password-protected accounts. These accounts only allow access to information within the authorized user’s area of responsibility. For example, the Registrar of a Club has access to data for all players/guardians registered within that Club, but not to players registered to different Clubs. Prior to being granted access to personal information, the individual must acknowledge the NMYSA Standards of Ethical Conduct policy concerning appropriate use and protection of personal information in its various forms, which includes penalties for inappropriate use, be backgrounded checked, SafeSport Trained and Safety Trained.

Selected PII is required in order to register players. All NMYSA youth soccer programs are age-specific and require legal name, birth date and gender information. Contact with players/guardians for team assignments, practice schedules, games and tournaments/festivals requires address, phone, and/or e-mail information. Parent/guardian contact information is necessary in case of emergencies. Failure to provide this information will prevent the player being registered. 

No PII concerning registered minor players is ever released directly or sold to marketers. However, applicable minor player/guardian information may be released to authorized individuals for registration, rostering, events and programs administered by or on behalf of NMYSA and for the services NMYSA provides which may include marketing and communications related to NMYSA activity, programs and sponsorships. Minor/guardian player data is provided to NMYSA's National Governing Bodies, US Soccer and US Youth Soccer for the purposes of member registration, communications and provided services. 

If you have any questions or concerns about NMYSA’s PII protection policies or usage or NMYSA’s privacy policy, please contact the NMYSA Risk Manager, Rennae Ross; the NMYSA Executive Director / Registrar, Gloria Faber; (505) 830-2245, or the NMYSA Webmaster, Bill Flor.
