Roster updates/additions/substractions


  1. Team Packet Entry (1 per team)
  2. NCCS Waiver (1 per player/coach)
  3. UH Waiver (1 per player/coach)

If you need to add a player, you need to print the entry form, player verification form, code of conduct, NCCS waiver, and UH waiver and have only the additional players on these documents. The documents must be approved by the IMS professional on campus and the players MUST be verified by the registrar, seal and hours. This is the same process you did when you created your roster. YOUR ADDITIONAL PLAYERS WILL NOT BE ADDED ON SITE WITHOUT ALL OF THE VERIFICATION PAPERWORK.

If you need to remove players, you need to email Kristen LaFleur at and give her your school, team name, and players to be removed. We will take it from there.

We are creating your rosters on You do not have the ability to adjust your rosters.
