Each youth soccer organization in the state must compile and maintain a registration database. Most organizations appoint a Registrar to oversee all such registration functions. The database will contain identifying information for each individual involved in the organization.
COMPILING THE REGISTRATION DATABASE
Due to new requirements from US Soccer’s implementation of their National Data Center and the convergence to new US Soccer Connect system we must receive more information than needed in the past. Certain U.S. Soccer questions have been added, but are not required (Country of Birth, Country of Citizenship and Played Abroad). One parent email address is now required.
In order to upload player file, you will need administrator access privileges to access the Upload Module in US Soccer Connect. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you require assistance.
