Division II registered teams that are not adding any players need only to obtain player passes from the MSA office and use their existing roster.
Any player registered on a Division 1 Roster and was transferred back to a D3 Recreation Roster prior to Feburary 28 of the current Seasonal Year, may participate in State Games.
Any Division 1 player that transfers back to Division 3 after February 27 of the current Seasonal Year is NOT eligible for State Games All-Star recreational division but may participate with a team in the Elite division.
Dual registered teams (teams comprised of players from D3 recreational teams) must pay a secondary registration fee and obtain player passes from MSA. You may create your State Games roster using the Division II E-pass system. The roster will be reviewed and released after the applicable fees are paid. Division II teams that are not adding any players may use their existing roster and player passes. Dual or secondary teams will participate in the All-Star Recreational Division unless otherwise requested.
Primary registered teams (D1 or D2 primary) are eligible to participate in the State Games of Mississippi. All players participating on a primary team are required to have a player pass. D1 or D2 primary teams that are not adding any players may use their existing roster and player passes. These teams will compete in the Elite Division.
U7 and U8 teams are not required to obtain player passes.
Contact the MSA office directly for roster or player pass issues.

As a registered and rostered team that was in effect as of the closing date of the MSA State Recreational Championship Tournament.
b. A Division II All-Star Team (excluding previously rostered Division I Players).
3. State Game Tournaments – All State Games Tournaments shall comply with all requirements for MSA Sanctioned tournament application and post-tournament reporting.
