Staff | Background Screening

As of June 1, 2023

Domestic background screening^

$26.85 (USOPC standard)

International background screening

$56 - $300 (varies)

The player registration fee increase is the first since the 2015-16 season.

Registration opens June 1, 2023 for the 2023-24 registration year, which spans July 1, 2023 to July 31, 2024.

^Background screening is valid for two registration years (the current and the subsequent).

^As indicated in last month’s Safeguarding & Compliance member update, US Club Soccer is upgrading its domestic background screening to the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) standard, effective with the 2023-24 registration year. Accordingly, US Club Soccer is reducing the competitive staff registration fee (-$10 over two registration years) to more than offset the increased pass-through cost of USOPC-standard background screening (+$8.85 over two registration years).
