eSign for Player Registration is Now Free
8/14/2013 4:17:06 PM
eSign, the process that makes an online "signature" legally valid, is now free for AYSO player registrations. Your AYSO National Board of Directors voted to eliminate the $.25 per player fee that was previously charged for any player registered by eSign, starting with any player registered on or after July 1, 2013.
Your National Board voted to make eSign registration free as part of the initiative to convert AYSO Regions from paper forms registration to electronic registration. Volunteer registration eSign became free last year.
eSign of players and volunteers provides many advantages to Regions. It eliminates the need to store paper forms for long periods of time, as the official eSignature will be maintained in eAYSO to meet legal requirements.
Further, it protects the privacy of our players and volunteers, by allowing Regions to shred paper print outs after the season is over, rather than having to store them for years and run the risk that forms containing player or volunteer information could be lost or stolen.
In the case of volunteers, it allows for faster background checks to speed up the approval process for AYSO volunteers. And, as AYSO moves to be more user friendly to today's internet savvy young families, it creates a simpler process for busy parents in registering their child.
