ITC Process

International Clearance Process

 

Any player who was born or resides in Canada must secure an International Clearance to enable them to register for play in the United States. The process can take up to 30 days once the paperwork is submitted to FIFA. Kenmore Soccer will coordinate the process and monitor the clearances, so all paperwork will go directly to Kenmore Soccer Operations Manager Ken Voght.


To register, the minor player (and parents) must provide the following items in a digital format via e-mail to [email protected]:

    1. Completed ITC 5-11 request form.
      Note: the "Last Foreign Club Participated" section relates to the player's last Canadian soccer club, while "Club Wishing To Participate With"  is Kenmore Soccer Club, and "League" is BWNYJSL.

    2. A copy of the Player’s Birth Certificate/Card.

    3. Proof of Filiation – this can be met if a long-form birth certificate was provided. If a birth card is provided for Item ii, then FIFA will require an official document that shows the parent/child relationship, such as a Baptismal Certificate or a school document.

    4. A copy of the Player’s Passport or Nexus Card, or a statement signed by the parents that the player does not possess either document.

    5. Copies of the Parents’ Passports or Nexus Cards.

    6. Proof of residence location – a copy of a utility bill no more than 4 months old, which lists the parent(s) name and address.


Note: a player can only be registered in one country. Once the International Clearance is granted, it will remain valid unless the player registers back in Canada.
