**UYSA League Updates**
Digital Player Cards and Game Day Rosters
Digital Player Cards have been approved for state competition league play. This means that teams are allowed to pull up their player passes on their smart phone or tablet at the fields. Many of you are familiar with the technology if you've refereed in State Cup, Presidents Cup, Coyote Cup, or had teams that used the platform last fall season.
Teams can either use a traditional Game Day Roster for check in at a game or they can use Digital Player Cards. UYSA will accept either for check-in. The teams are responsible for providing their own device if they want to use the digital player cards for league play.
However, if you're familiar with the platform and are willing to use your smart phone or tablet you can log into the platform as a referee and pull up the player cards for the game on your phone. Red Cards, Concussion Restrictions, or Suspensions are shown on the digital cards. Jersey Numbers, if not already entered, can be entered.
If the teams are using their phones you just need to double check that the correct game # is pulled up and then check the pictures on the phone against the players who are checking in.
If using your own device you can also log the score, cards, or any other notes about the game as soon as the game concludes. You do not have to enter scores through the digital cards platform. You can log into Affinity through your computer and score the games and complete the match review as you have the past several seasons.
