How it changed:
No team, club, coach or player or any other person may approach a registered player their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) to induce or attempt to induce the player to leave his or her current club. Refer to Arbitration Rules, Section VII for governing this offense
The additional language added above is to make clear that a youth player may be represented by their parents or legal guardian for the purposes of registration, and therefore equally responsible for a player if or when approached to leave their current club.
To be consistent with US Youth Soccer Policy on Players and Playing Rules, Rule 201, Section 3 which states:
A youth player is registered for a seasonal year from the moment the player or the player’s representative executes the registration form and pays the appropriate fees.
