Cal North Injury Claim Reporting Procedures California Youth Soccer Association (Cal North) in conjunction with Pullen Insurance has launched an online claims system to handle injury claims. Please note that only accidents on or after September 1, 2012 can be processed using the online claims system. If the accident date occurred before this date, please do not proceed with the online claim submission; instead, you will need to contact Debbie Alvarez at for the appropriate case report/claim form. To access the online claims program, please use the link below: E-Travel System In an effort to streamline the team travel and guest player travel request process, Cal North is excited to announce the implementation of Active/League One's E-Travel and Guest Player approval system. The new system eliminates the need to submit hard copy forms into the Cal North Office. Instead, teams wishing to travel to US Soccer Federation sanctioned tournaments will be able to fill out an online form. The system will then check the submitted data against Cal North's data in Active/LeagueOne, and output a confirmation page that grants the team permission to travel provided all the information input into the online e-travel system is validated. Additionally, if the travelling team is using guest players a similar form online is available to handle guesting players travel approval. Please use the attached updated links: Team Travel Form Guest Player Travel Form
