Madeira FC players must be registered with a US Soccer governing body to compete in league and tournament games, in our case Ohio Soccer Association, which uses a system called Demosphere. The instructions for registering are below.
Login to your family account, or if you’re new to club soccer in Ohio, create a new family account.
Select the player.
If the player wasn’t registered ever before, you’ll need to upload a digital copy of the player’s birth certificate or passport. Make sure they are legible.
Upload a player photo. A school photo is a good option. It must be a color, forward-facing photo of the player. The player cannot be wearing a hat or sunglasses, or a Halloween mask, or a bucket over their head. It should be close up, not a photo that’s intended to show how small the player is in comparison to the Washington Monument. The system has a zoom and crop tool that will allow you to ensure it only includes the player (no siblings or friends). If your photo doesn’t meet the league standard, they will reject it, and that delays our carding process.
Click through, digitally sign a bunch of forms, submit your order for $0, and make sure you get to the confirmation screen.
