Coaching Requirements

Updated:  March 22,  2017

Volunteer registration and compliance is a multi-step process, involving disconnected systems, required by Mass Youth Soccer.  Thank you in advance for your patience with the process.

AdminSports Registration

All volunteers (head coaches, assistant coaches and managers) must register in their family account in AdminSports in order to be assigned to a roster and affiliated with ASC.  This typically happens during the player registration process – if a parent volunteers at a later date s/he will need to log back in to this system to register as a volunteer.  Photo upload in AdminSports is not required, and is not transferable to the MYS CORI registration system (where a photo is required) outlined below.

CORI / MYS Registration

All volunteers (head coaches, assistant coaches and managers) must register with Massachusetts Youth Soccer (MYS) every year before the start of the fall season, and complete a CORI background check every three years.

Returning CORI-cleared coaches must register annually with MYS.

NEW coaches must register and complete the CORI background check before the start of the season; note that this is a two-step process.

Complete the registration/CORI check here.  Please forward your completed registration and CORI certificate to our CORI Submitter.

You must upload a current photo to the MYS registration site.  This photo will be used for lanyards (credentials) in Spring 2017 for ALL coaches PreK through Grade 12.  Lanyards will be distributed at the Coaches Meeting.

If you have any trouble with the MYS Affinity site please review the Help Videos located here or call the Affinity Help line:  855-703-2558.  The site, *.sportsaffinity.com, has a security certificate issued by DigiCert SHA2 High Assurance Server CA with 256 bit encryption, valid through February 22, 2018..

Note to IE users:  compatibility mode should be disabled in order for the site to function properly.

If you do not have a social security number please contact our CORI Submitter and provide a copy of your visa and passport.

New coaches should bring their completed CORI form to the coaches meeting at the start of the season and have their identify verified with ASC’s CORI Submitter or Registrar.

Note: As indicated above, MYS registration is different from the ASC volunteer registration which takes place in the player registration software (AdminSports).  Essentially, there are two registrations:  1.) registering to volunteer with ASC in AdminSports; 2.) registering with MYS for ASC.  

Concussion Training

This is a mandatory training that must be completed every three years.  Please complete the training session here.

Please forward your certificate of completion to our CORI Submitter, who handles all elements of coach compliance.
