To ensure a smooth integration with your state association, you will want to follow the steps below for setting up your new program. Setting up your program to sync with your state association is important so that vital information about participants and team personnel can be easily sent.
To get started, navigate to Registration>>New Program.
***If you are creating a Program and see that a new season is not available, please reach out to your governing body for assistance. The new season will have to be enabled before your program can be created.***
In Step 1, you will enter your Activity Type as Soccer and choose US Youth Soccer as your National Affiliation. Everything available in the drop-down menus is coming directly from your state association.
Once this information has been selected, click Next to be taken through the remaining steps.
Step 2 will pull questions, electronic legal agreements, and uploads directly from your state association.
In addition, all soccer clubs will be required to ask:
- Country of Birth
- Country of Citizenship
- Has this player played outside of the US?
These questions are a requirement through US Soccer Federation.
All state requirements will be shown at the top of Step 2 in a section titled Program Questions Required by your Governing Body. Any Allowed items are displayed here as well. You will have the ability to choose whether or not the Allowed items are required. All additional program questions can be added below as usual. Please refer to the following guide for additional information regarding program questions: Step 2: Program Questions.
Step 4: When configuring Team Personnel for your program, you may also see additional requirements set for each role. These requirements are set by your state association and cannot be changed. A list of examples is below:
- Team Personnel Photo Upload
- Social Security Number
- Driver’s License
- Birth Certificate
- Additional Certifications
- Drop-down/Radio/Text NGB custom questions
- Electronic Legal Agreements
Similar to Program Questions, any Allowed items will be displayed here as well. You can choose whether or not these are required.
Step 6 is configured for you based on the information selected at Step 1. All of your divisions and age requirements are determined by your state association. You are able to edit the names of the divisions, as well as remove ones you do not need. Please note, you will have limited control over the age ranges.
The Age Ranges are set by the state association. The maximum age can never be edited. The minimum age can only be edited if your association allows participants to play up.
You are able to configure registration and season dates, division price, and Step 6: Advanced Settings.
