Step 2: League Registration - SQWAD

Due Thursday, Nov 30th for Spring season. All Recreational players are required to also register with the league in addition to registering with the club.

On Nov 30th, the roster minimum of players must be registered in Sqwad so the league allows the team to form. Do not wait until the last day to register in case you run into technical questions/issues and risk your team formation! Girls Unite may need up to 2 business days to reply to questions during the rush of registration. Please plan accordingly!

Process: After you complete Step 1, within 2-3 business days, Girls Unite will manually invite your player to the team in Sqwad. Once you receive the invitation to your email, log into SQWAD, select “Proceed” on the invitation, or reject (if it is not the correct team).

Spring season typical fees are $0 if the player is returning to the same team from the fall, or $30 if the player is new to the team and paid directly to the league.

Fall season typical fees are $100 ($150 for Varsity level). SFYS League Fees are additional & paid directly to SFYS by the families as required by the league.

(New Players to Sqwad/SFYS only) League Registration Process (Sqwad):

If your player is new to Sqwad/SFYS, you can log into Sqwad, create a parent account, and a player profile now (please use the same primary email you entered into Step 1 registration). After Girls Unite manually invites your player to the team in Sqwad, you will need to log back in, process payment (if fall season or new to SFYS), accept the team invitation and complete the league registration.


Download the “SQWAD” App to your phone or go to website above.

Enter a username email and password and select Login.

Use the same email entered as “parent 1” in the Step 1/Teamsnap registration. Do NOT use a different email for club registration and league registration.

If you need to create an account select “Create Account” and follow the steps.

Remember to create a separate player profile. The team invitation can only be sent to your player profile (not a parent profile).

  • If you can’t find the teamsnap receipt, AND can’t remember which email you used to register your player in step 1 through Teamsnap, email Please include your players name and SQWAD username/email.

Girls Unite Admin will now manually invite your player’s profile to the team in Sqwad.

  • This can take a couple of business days as it is not unfortunately an automated process.

Once you receive the invitation to your email, log into SQWAD, select “Proceed” on the invitation, or reject (if it is not the correct team).

You will then upload a birth document, player head photo, and pay the league fee.

  • For the player head photo – Not allowed: hat, hood, sunglasses, face paint (nothing that obscures the face), not far away, not full body, no profile.

For Spring season, follow prompts so your player is now registered with the league!

For Fall season, submit payment for league registration and your player is now registered with the league!

  • Reminder: you must pay two times in the Fall (or if new to SFYS/Sqwad) – once for the club registration and once for the league registration
