Starting in the 2021 season the BSL will have a new check-in procedure.
Please complete this check-in for all games, don't just start the season and then get lazy as it goes on.
All teams will have supplied new photos for all players, so you will no longer have the issue of a graduation photo appearing on the passcard of a 35-year-old player.
1. The team manager will hand out a sheet with all the player pass cards before the check-in process.
2. A BSL game report MUST be supplied with all the player's names and numbers
3. Start from the top of the list and read each player's name. Check that they are included on the player ID sheet and that both names match and it looks like the player.
Indicate on the BSL game report that the player has been checked in.
If there are any discrepancies, notify the BSL Rep (if present), or make a note and inform the other team's manager/representative.
4. Once you have completed the check-in process for a team hand the BSL ID roster sheet back to the team's manager/representative.
Rather than the center doing everything, it is probably best that you get an assistant to read out the names and then the center and the other assistant confirm the ids match.
For late arrivals, the player should approach the assistant referee on their side of the field at a time that is appropriate, (i.e. during a substitution). Check the card's match and make a note of the player's name, so they can be checked off the BSL game report.
