MEMBER UPDATE: Sideline Sports Doc-US Club Soccer online injury recognition course

Dear members,

The Sideline Sports Doc (SSD) online injury recognition course has been reflective of US Club Soccer’s commitment to player health and safety since 2016, when the course became a requirement of US Club Soccer staff registration.

Unfortunately, the course will no longer exist after the 2020-21 registration year (ending July 31, 2021). SSD has been severely impacted by COVID-19 and the course is not something they are able to support moving forward.

Rest assured, US Club Soccer will continue to prioritize player health and safety. To that end, we will evaluate other options to incorporate into the staff registration process for the 2022-23 registration year to supplement stringent background screening, SafeSport Training and the disqualification/suspension review process.

Please also note that Sideline Sports Doc prepaid codes will not be valid after June 30, 2021. Applicable member organizations are asked to manage their allocations or any potential future purchase accordingly. If you have questions regarding these prepaid purchases, please contact

US Club Soccer values its relationship with Sideline Sports Doc and will continue to recommend its Good to Go mobile app.
