Starting with the 2016-17 registration year, US Club Soccer is implementing several Player Health and Safety initiatives for registered staff members as part of its Players First philosophy. As such, the steps necessary to register staff members with US Club Soccer are detailed below.

Any staff member assigned to a team or working with or managing players age U-17 and below are required to be registered with US Club Soccer, regardless of whether they are volunteers or paid staff, or registered with another U.S. Soccer member organization.

  1. Complete Sideline Sports Doc online course. []
    Effective July 1, all coaches and staff members registering with US Club Soccer must complete this course each time a background check is required (approximately every two years). Users will receive a confirmation number when the course is complete, which must then be entered into the corresponding background screening application (see #2 below). This step must be completed by the person registering with US Club Soccer.
  2. Complete background screening. [US Club Soccer Background Screening Application]
    US Club Soccer substantially increased its background screening standard and transitioned the application and process to the Sport Ngin platform. This step must be completed by the person registering with US Club Soccer.
  3. Register, by either requesting a staff passcard in KYCK Play (for competitive staff), or submitting the Rec Registration Form #R003-R (for rec staff). [Open as of July 1]
    US Club Soccer registration is not complete, nor is insurance valid, until the staff passcard/rec registration have been approved and processed by US Club Soccer. In most cases, this step is completed by the club/organization’s registrar on behalf of the individual coach/staff member. This step may be completed before #1 and #2 above, but the registration will not be approved until all three steps are completed.
