Below are a number of tips to smooth the registration process and reduce the amout of photos that will get rejected
The photo must be recent (taken within the last 6 months)
The photo needs to be square – The system will compress the picture into the space provided, if your photo is not square you will either end up with a squashed or stretched face.
Please Crop the photo before you upload – Most Phones these days will take a good quality photo, so cropping the head and shoulders will not reduce the quality
A close-up of the player’s head only with the player facing forwards looking straight towards the camera – If it isn’t a close up then the picture will be too small on the ID cards/Team sheet.
If your orginal picture is too small in terms of quaulity then increasing the size will not work
The head needs to be at least 75% of the photo
Photo of the player on their own – A picture of the player with their dog, might look cute but it does not look very good on an ID card/Team sheet
Make sure the picture is portrait – If not rotate it before uploading, what you see on the screen is what will come out on the ID card/Team sheet
Taking a photo of another photo is never going to give you a high quality Photo, it will more than likel end up blurry and get rejected
If you are scanning a photo, make sure you use the maximum DPI avaliable
Mak sure your photo fills the entire frame, if it doesn you will end up with a white boarder

If your photo does get rejected you do not have to request parental / guardian consent again, if you do this, it actually removes the consent.
You will only be able to request player consent if you hae allocated the player to a team.
Please also double check the email addresses you are entering. There have been a large number of bounces, so you might want to email your parents on the address you have to look out for the consent emails and then if they are incorrect you will get the mail delivery failure emails yourself
