Coach & Volunteer Registration

Starting in the 2019-2020 Season all team coaches, managers, and volunteers MUST be registered with this system and have clearances, concussion training certificates, and SafeSport certificate on file with CYSA. This means all adults that interact with kids other than their own on CYSA or league fields MUST be registered.

This is all covered in the registration process and from your profile page of this site.

 
Volunteer Registration Process

1.) Follow the appropriate registration link below. You will need a headshot to upload during the process. This photo should be a head-and-shoulders portrait against a blank or blurred background.

2.) Once registered, use the Member Login link in the upper-right of the site to access your Member Profile. Your Member Profile should look something like this:

3.) Press the "Learn More >" button to complete your Concussion Training class. This online course takes about 30-minutes, upon completion you will be presented with a completion certificate, save this as a PDF in a safe place. Concussion certificates are good for one year. If you need to register as a coach again for a second season in the same 12-month period you can send your saved certificate PDF to the director of coaching and they will upload it for you.

4.) Press the "Begin Training >" button to complete your SafeSport Training class. This online course takes about 90-minutes fir your first time and 25-minutes for renewals, upon completion you will be presented with a completion certificate, save this as a PDF in a safe place. SafeSport certificates are good for one year. If you need to register as a coach again for a second season in the same 12-month period you can send your saved certificate PDF to the director of coaching and they will upload it for you.

5.) Complete your clearances. Follow the flowchart here to determine what clearances you need. All the links that you need are available on that website. Every volunteer needs a PA Child Abuse Check and PA State Check. If you've lived in PA for the last 10 consecutive years you need to fill-out the Affidavit of Compliance. If you have NOT lived in PA for the last 10 consecutive years tyou need an FBI Background Check.

Clearances may take a few days to be reviewd and approved. Once you receive the documents save them as PDFs.

If you are a teacher or have clearances from working with another organization you do not need to get them again, as long as they were completed in the last five years and you have or can generate PDF versions of the documents.

6.) Combine your clearances into a single PDF. You can follow these instructions if you have a Mac. Or you can use these instructions for a Windows. Alternatively you can find online PDF-combiner webpages with a Google search but use these at your own risk because you are uploading semi-private information to an unknown website.

7.) Save your combined clearances somewhere safe. Your clearances are good for 5-years, but they will need to be re-uploaded every season that you register to coach.

8.) Press the "Upload" button to upload your combined PDF file. Uploading multiple times will replace the previous upload so please combine your three clearances documents into one PDF before uploading, as described in step 6.
