28 Jun Now available: Sideline Sports Doc-US Club Soccer online course, new background screening application
June 28, 2016
The Sideline Sports Doc-US Club Soccer online course, as well as the new background screening application are now available for coaches and staff members registering with US Club Soccer for the 2016-17 registration season.
These are the two Player Health and Safety initiatives for registered staff members announced by US Club Soccer CEO Kevin Payne earlier this month as part of the Players First platform.
- Sideline Sports Doc-US Club Soccer online course: All coaches and staff members registering with US Club Soccer must complete the course each time a background screening is required (approximately every other year). The confirmation number you receive upon course completion must be entered into the background screening application in order to proceed.
- Background screening: US Club Soccer has substantially increased its background screening standard and transitioned the application and process to the Sport Ngin platform.

- Application: https://usclubsoccer.sportngin.com/register/form/989296367
Please remember that completing these two initiatives does not mean you are registered with US Club Soccer. Registration is not complete, nor is insurance valid, until a staff passcard or rec registration request is received, paid for, and subsequently approved by US Club Soccer. One may not participate with youth players until these steps are completed.
For further guidance regarding the upcoming 2016-17 registration year, please review the Member Update | June 20, 2016 – Registrar information for 2016-17 registration year and the Registration section of usclubsoccer.org.
Please contact your respective US Club Soccer regional administrator with questions.
