New Jersey Youth Soccer

Program Information

New Jersey Youth Soccer member recreational clubs and leagues are focused on offering youth soccer settings to youth players of any age where the player is interested in the enjoyment and development of soccer in a less committed environment. The recreational level of play is an ideal entry point for the player who wants to be introduced to the game, play with friends, and participate on a team.

Recreation Player and Coach Registration


Recreation programs are not required to submit teams to NJYS. However, should a recreation program participate in an NJYS member recreation league, team submission may be required.


Submit Player Information to NJYS Platform

Every player, regardless of a new or returning status, must have a new application (i.e., registration) submitted for them each year. This can occur through the upload portal by completing the upload player template with updated information for the player, through the Sports Connect club platform, or by manual entry (only recommended for less than 15 players).


Register Coaches (Submit SafeSport, Concussion Certificates, & Background Check)

All adults applying as a recreation member (i.e. recreation coach) must submit the appropriate compliance documents to NJ Youth Soccer via the coach’s Sports Connect account for verification (if not previously verified). See the compliance requirements below: 

Concussion Education (No Expiration Date)
SafeSport Training (Annual Requirement - Completion Date after June 1st, 2021 or completion of Refresher 4)

All adults applying as a recreation member  (i.e. recreation coach)  must also clear a background check. Coaches can submit through NJYS for a background check. For organizations that conduct their own background checks, the organization must complete a "Certification of Criminal Background Screening Compliance for Recreational Youth Coaches."


As communicated last seasonal year, there is a $9.00 fee for recreation coaches.  This is regardless background check provider through NJYS.  All adult coaches must register themselves to ensure proper coverage. 

Make Payment for Registrations

Clubs are invoiced on the 1st of each month through the NJYS registration platform. This invoice will include any registration activity that occurred in the month prior. For instructions regarding payment remittance, click here
