We understand that everyone wants to play as much as possible. We also understand that many of us have friends in other clubs. Again, although we do our very best to give players every opportunity possible to play, we also provide them with ample rest and recovery time. Many times when a player wants to guest play with another club or team it is at the expense of his rest.
The one stipulation that MFC has with guest playing for another Club is that no MFC player can guest play for another team that is playing an MFC team or playing when their team has a scheduled tournament.
Given that, MFC will allow players to guest play provided the following occurs at least one week prior to the event.
- Player and family ask appropriate coach or Director of Coaching (DoC) about playing. Prior to asking, player and family need to insure that their MFC team is not playing that weekend. DoCs will not allow you to guest play within our club or outside of it if your team has a game/tournament that weekend.
- The coach of the other team must contact the appropriate Coach or team manager to ask permission.
- Lastly, no MFC Parent Administrator will directly hand any player/family their player card if they have not completed the above two steps.
- Player card will be checked-out for 72 hours.
Guest playing with another team can be a great experience for the player and can help a team that is in a tough situation. But, given certain Illinois Youth Soccer rules concerning the number of games a player can play and our philosophy on player development, we do our best to provide the best ratio of trainings to games possible.
For any questions regarding the Guest Playing Policy, you may contact the Millennium FC Board or the Director of Coaching.
