A: Once the coach of a team has sent the player an invited from NSID, the player will receive an email and allow for them to “join the team”. They will then begin uploading the needed information for their age verification process to begin. There is a $11.79 cost to be age verified.

Q: My athlete is playing in more than one tournament. Do I need to pay for age verification each time?
A: No. You will only need to pay for the age verification process once and your athlete is eligible to participate in any NFL FLAG tournament this year. When you register for another tournament, be sure to log into NSID with the same log in email to make sure you are using the correct ID number for your athlete. If you have any questions regarding payment, please reach out to NSID directly at email@example.com
Q: My athlete is not showing as age verified. What do I do?
A: There are a few reasons why your athlete may not be shown as eligible, or age verified on their team roster.
1) Your player(s) NSID may be in the pending review status and in this case, it will be orange when you log in. Please allow up to 24 hours for the review to take place.
2) Your player(s) NSID may have been rejected and is awaiting a change or more information. If so, the NSID will be red, and you can view the reason on your Dashboard or on the player’s NSID.
In either case, we encourage you to check your athlete’s status with NSID by reaching out to customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org
