US CLUB SOCCER - HOW DO I REGISTER MY TEAM?
For EDP and EDP Futures league affiliation-Register under our league affiliation and pay only the cost of passes
- Club or team goes to http://usclubsoccer.org/join/
- Have 5 choices for registration – 2 of which are most applicable for a travel team using the passes in league play: CLUB (use this if you plan to register 3 or more teams with USCLUB) & LEAGUE TEAM (use this if you are an individual team looking to register & need a league affiliate). Registering as a LEAGUE TEAM (instead of a club) means you register under our league affiliation and as such only pay the cost of your passes. A club membership means you must register 3 or more teams (and players) with USCLUB and will be required to pay a $1000. deposit, to which pass costs are deducted from that account. So, for many teams, registering a league team is easier to swallow financially! You can register more than one team under that established account - as you are registering your club, but under the league affiliation. So, enter once, and your club is registered for future teams.
- When you chose league team – type MSSL/MAPS/EDP (CJYSA-NJ)
- Club/team completes the application and submits it to USCS - BE SURE Completed all fields
- Contact LEAGUE Administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org, advising you have submitted application for approval. US Club will review the application and Mike Gould of US Club will approve all new club/team applications (he checks whether there is an existing club or not. If there is, application will not be approved. Need to have club add team to existing account) If your club already has an existing account with US Club under the MSSL/MAPS affiliation, your application will be declined; but you will receive an email from the league administrator advising you who to contact within your club to register your team under the existing account.
- Once approved, the request goes to the league to approve. Once approved, notice is sent and you establish your account in USCLUB/KYCK.com. Your password, along with your email address (user name) will allow access to the member’s only website.
- League (EDP) monitors registrants and informs USCS of any improper registrants, but USCS takes no action unless informed by the league. If your club is already a member, you will be rejected, and advised to contact the club registrar to get your team registered.
- Teams are responsible for registering coaches and players online.
- After establishing your club account, go to www.usclubsoccer.com and click the KYCK.COM link and enter your email address and password. You will then enter your club site. You will enter information as follows:

- Enter TEAM information - under view teams
- Enter PLAYERS – under add/view players – you SHALL upload the players’ birth certificate directly to the. You will note the box that indicates “BROWSE” next to it to locate the file on your computer. You will also upload the players picture, which will then print directly onto the player's pass. This is also convenient should a pass be lost and needs to be reprinted.
- Enter STAFF – for each coach; assistant coach and team manager - under Staff. Be sure to enter the risk management confirmation number at the bottom. After coach is entered under staff, go back to the team record, and add the staff to the team. After adding the name, phone number and email, the information recorded under staff should appear and will carry that person to the team. You will need to complete all the fields however (i.e., state)
- Lastly, you must request the player cards – under Cards – request cards – if any information is missing, there will be a red “X” next to view (to the right of the player’s name). All information must be uploaded or validated before a player pass can be requested. Check the box to the left of each player’s name for passes you want to print. Click the REQUEST at the bottom, and the next screen will look for credit card information to place the order.

Starting with the 2016-17 registration year, US Club Soccer is implementing several Player Health and Safety initiatives for registered staff members as part of its Players First philosophy. As such, the steps necessary to register staff members with US Club Soccer are detailed below.
- Any staff member assigned to a team or working with or managing players age U-17 and below are required to be registered with US Club Soccer, regardless of whether they are volunteers or paid staff, or registered with another U.S. Soccer member organization. sidelinesportsdoc.com/usclubsoccer/Complete Sideline Sports Doc online course.
- Effective July 1, all coaches and staff members registering with US Club Soccer must complete this course each time a background check is required (approximately every two years). Users will receive a confirmation number when the course is complete, which must then be entered into the corresponding background screening application (see #2 below). This step must be completed by the person registering with US Club Soccer.
- Complete background screening. US Club Soccer Background Screening Application
- US Club Soccer substantially increased its background screening standard and transitioned the application and process to the Sport Ngin platform. This step must be completed by the person registering with US Club Soccer.
- Register, by either requesting a staff passcard in KYCK Play (for competitive staff), or submitting the Rec Registration Form #R003-R (for rec staff). [Open as of July 1]
- US Club Soccer registration is not complete, nor is insurance valid, until the staff passcard/rec registration have been approved and processed by US Club Soccer. In most cases, this step is completed by the club/organization’s registrar on behalf of the individual coach/staff member. This step may be completed before #1 and #2 above, but the registration will not be approved until all three steps are completed.
