Update on outdoor 2019 season registration data entry

Board approval was granted on June 9, 2018 to move to the SportsEngine Member Management System (MMRS) for Phase 2 of the three-phase implementation plan. Effective for the Outdoor 2019 season and for all seasons thereafter, SportsEngine’s MMRS will be the official record of registration for Ontario Soccer. 

In order to facilitate the smoothest transition possible to the new MMRS platform, two primary districts will commence the onboarding process and conduct live interaction with the new platform from November 2018 to January 2019. 

To ensure that there are no gaps in service while the two districts and their clubs work in the new MMRS system, the remaining 19 districts will maintain their registration and competitive rostering needs in AIMS temporarily for their initial Outdoor 2019 data.
