03 Oct Member Update: US Club Soccer National Registration System transition
Oct. 3, 2017
The transition from KYCK Play to US Club Soccer’s National Registration System in SportsEngine is well underway.
As previously communicated, a primary focus is ensuring a responsible transition with minimal disruption for our members. Collectively, US Club Soccer and SportsEngine aim to do so by taking incremental steps, avoiding deployments during the busiest registration periods, and allowing ample time for engineering, testing and user training. The overall deployment schedule has been adjusted in alignment with these factors.
PROGRESS TO DATE:
We want to highlight several improvements that have been made so far, which are not only important for KYCK Play, but also incremental towards US Club Soccer’s National Registration System in SportsEngine.
- Stabilization of underlying infrastructure and architecture, and enhanced security.
- Syncing of user credentials between the SportsEngine and KYCK Play platforms under the SportsEngine single sign-on. That is, the same user credentials may be used for US Club Soccer’s current registration platform as well as any SportsEngine tool.
- Provisioning every US Club Soccer member organization with a profile and account within SportsEngine.
- Workflow improvements for those using SportsEngine Registration (player/parent-to-club) to more seamlessly integrate with US Club Soccer’s National Registration System.
Over the next nine months, please anticipate the following implementations and key features.
- Platform enhancements to comply with approaching FIFA and U.S. Soccer Federation registration requirements. (More information on this will be shared soon.)
- Each US Club Soccer member organization will claim and update their organizational account profile in SportsEngine, which will subsequently be used to access the new US Club Soccer National Registration System.
- Registration and financial reports available to members.
- Streamlined passcard approval process.
- User training and transition to new interfaces for club/team management, rostering and passcarding.
Additionally, US Club Soccer and SportsEngine remain dedicated to the following items on an ongoing basis.
- Reinforcement and support of KYCK Play throughout the transition.
- Architectural work and planning of additional workflow improvements, particularly those that streamline data collection and increase administrative efficiencies.
- Big-picture planning for subsequent enhancements and features to US Club Soccer’s National Registration System in SportsEngine.
Thank you for your support, and we will keep you informed as the transition progresses.
