As we prepare to hopefully start our new season of CYSC, I have set out below the WYSL requirements for trainers and parent coaches. There are three steps you need to have completed (these courses are in addition to the 2 hour and 4/6 hour rules and practice courses that need to be done just once and don't expire - most of you should have those already as this isn't your first year - if you don't, please reach out to me and i can send you informatin about upcoming courses).
- Sideline Sports Doc Training Program – it can be found at http://usclubsoccer.sidelinesportsdoc.com/. Once you create an account, there’s a $5 fee and the various videos take about 45 minutes to watch.
After completion you will be mailed a certificate, which should be uploaded to the following link https://usclub.sportngin.com/register/form/084352915. You will have to create an account here as well if you don’t have one. After you complete the course, it states that the certificate will be automatically communicated to US Soccer, but to be safe, you should upload it as well.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an auto-reply email with the link, U.S. Soccer access code, and instructions to take the required SafeSport online training course. (When you register for an account, it will ask for a photo, but that is optional so you can ignore that). The videos take about 90 minutes, but can be done in different sessions. After 100% completion save the certificate to your computer and upload to this link: https://usclub.sportngin.com/register/form/147080226
- Go to https://usclub.sportngin.com/register/form/317485477 to register for a background check (there’s a $18 fee for this). When you are asked to input a club, you must choose “WYSL – Westchester Youth Soccer League” (at the bottom of the drop down list). You should receive a “Clear” email within a few days – you do not need to forward that to anyone, just keep for your records (this background check will count for the New Castle background requirement as well).
Once those three steps are complete, the system should update and we will be able to see that everything is set. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know.
Thanks for your work making CYSC such a success.
