Coach Registration

Recreation Coach Registration

For coaches, please register on same site as player but use Coach/Volunteer registration. PSC Recreational coaches will have to do fingerprinting thru LiveScan.
LiveScan Form

To do fingerprinting, it is essential that coaches bring their driver’s license (or another form of government issued identification) to fingerprinting together with the attached form properly filled out. Where the form asks for the District, League and Club number you must use these numbers for your fingerprinting results to be routed properly:
District = 04 League = 14 Club = 06
Coaches go to one of these sites. You do not get charged and CapitalLive can track these transactions.

Player Health and Safety Initiatives: As part of its Players First philosophy and in order to promote a safe environment, US Club Soccer requires completion of the following Player Health and Safety initiativesby all staff members registering with US Club Soccer.

  1. Become “SafeSport Trained.”
    safesport.org – effective as of the 2018-19 registration year
    The U.S. Center for SafeSport online training covers the following subjects: sexual abuse, hazing, bullying, emotional misconduct, physical misconduct, harassment (non-sexual) as well as reporting obligations. There are three modules required to become “SafeSport Trained”: a) Mandatory Reporting: Understanding Your Responsibilities; b) Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education; and c) Emotional and Physical Misconduct.
  2. Complete Sideline Sports Doc (SSD) online course.
    usclubsoccer.sidelinesportsdoc.com
    This training program includes a six-chapter online course, as well as downloadable .pdf/e-book and .mp3 products, designed to improve on-field triage of key injury situations. The course incorporates U.S. Soccer’s “Concussions in Soccer” video and other Recognize to Recover content. The chapters are: 1) The SAFE Method – initial evaluation of an on-field injury, 2) Ankle and foot injuries, 3) Concussion, 4) Fractures, 5) Heat illness, and 6) Knee injuries.
  3. Complete background screening.
    US Club Soccer Background Screening Application
    Beyond a variety of national sources, our level of screening generally includes a direct county/state of residence criminal record search for all counties in which an individual has lived within the past seven years, regardless of whether any “hits” appear on the national database searches.

Registration: Registration is not complete until the staff passcard/rec registration request (#4 below) has been approved by US Club Soccer.

  1. Submit staff passcard or rec registration request. In most cases, this step is completed by the club/organization’s registrar on behalf of the individual coach or staff member. This step may be completed before the Player Health and Safety Initiatives listed above. Background screening results and an eligibility determination for “flagged” applicants will not be considered until a passcard/registration request is made for that person.
  2. NEW as of 2018: All Rec and Competitive Coaches will need to complete the “Heads Up Concussion” free online class and obtain their certificate at:
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
