Coaching Requirements — Background Check
All Coaches and Assistant Coaches must submit to an online background check before your first practice
To All DYSA Coaches and Assistant Coaches,
The DYSA Board of Directors has mandated that all Coaches and Assistant Coaches must be registered and insured through US Club Soccer. In order for this to happen, all Coaches and Assistant Coaches must submit to an online background check before your first practice.
This year, US Club Soccer, requires that all Coaches and Assistant Coaches must first take an online safety course with Sideline Sports Doc. Once the course is completed, you will receive a confirmation number that will allow you to submit the background check.
Click the red box that says “Take The Course Today”
Have a look at the Intro video and course description to get an idea of what you’ll be learning, then click on “Signup!”
Enter the info requested by US Club Soccer and when done, click “Create Account”
On the next page, enter this code and that will bypass the payment portal taking the cost to zero
Enter the code and then click the red box that says “Apply Code”
Once you have completed the course you will receive a confirmation e-mail from Sideline Sports Doc with a Certificate Number. This Certificate Number will allow you to start the background check.
In the lower right of the page, you can “Continue as a Guest”
You will be asked to submit your Sideline Sports Doc-US Club Soccer online course certificate number
Under Club Information, select “CA” as the state
Under Select Club, click on “Dixie Youth Soccer Association”
Under Role, check Coach
Continue filling out the remaining information
You cannot proceed without the Sideline Sports Doc-US Club Soccer online course certificate number. The background check is being paid for by the DYSA. If you are asked to pay on the last page, do not pay. Contact the DYSA Registrar, Aaron, at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, any Coach that has not been fingerprinted through the Dixie Youth Soccer Association must be fingerprinted at one of the coaches meetings. Coaches are required to attend one of these meetings. If you can not make it, you will need to be fingerprinted at the vendor's office. Your GLM can help facilitate this if needed.
These requirements are for the safety and protection of all players in the DYSA organization. Please take the time and make the effort to complete these tasks. All coaches this season must complete the process above. Coaches who had background checks through US Club Soccer in 2016 must submit a new background check.
If you have any questions or issues, please contact our Registrar email@example.com.
We do appreciate your time and cooperation.
