Adult Registration Process

All participating adults (persons age 18 and older - excluding Adult Athletes) must complete an Annual Mass Youth Soccer Adult Registration and possess an Adult Credential

Prior to completing your adult registration, confirm that the organization you would like to participate with is in need of your services for this registration year.

Every adult member of all organizations affiliated with Massachusetts Youth Soccer must complete the following Registration Requirements.  Please use the same legal first and last name and email address for all soccer related registrations.  This will ensure auto verification of your required trainings when applicable.

  1.  Complete an Annual Mass Youth Soccer Adult Registration online via U.S. Soccer Connect (USSC).​
  2.  Be CORI Approved.
  3.  National Background Check (NBGC) Approved (NBGC includes the State and National Sex Offender Registry Searches).
    1. An International Background Check may be processed on certain adult participants; if required, Mass Youth Soccer will notify the adult and the organization(s) they selected in U.S. Soccer Connect.
      • ​Completing the Mass Youth Soccer Adult Registration is inclusive of adding the information needed and submission of both the CORI and National background checks.
      • Adults will have one Risk Status and Risk Expire Date visible in their registration account; this is the combination of the review of all required background check reports.
  4.  Completed SafeSport Abuse Prevention training annually and be checked as verified/approved in USSC.  Policy information and how to complete this training are found in the "SafeSport Abuse Prevention Training Help Guide".

  6. If you have not previously done so (CORI Verification is a one-time event unless you change your name), you are required to print your CORI Acknowledgement form and contact your local organizations Risk Manager, as they are required to CORI Verify you.  This is done by either sending a notarized CORI Acknowledgement form, or meeting with your organizations Risk Manager to verify the information on the form in person, against a government issued photo ID.  Then, the Risk Manager will mark you as CORI Verified in the registration system. This is a Commonwealth of Mass Law.

  • If your organization has already marked you as CORI Verified no action is needed unless as noted above, you have changed your name.
