Register Players & Coaches

New Jersey Youth Soccer provides an online registration option for every player and coach! Our goal is to provide modern solutions for club administrators, allowing us to get more than 100,000 and 10,000 coaches on the field together.

All member clubs utilize the state's Sports Connect State Platform for essential membership functions like player and coach registration, adult risk management, and certificates of insurance. Our exclusive technology provider, Sports Connect, aims to connect administrators, coaches, teams, and families with tools that help save time, reduce burnout, and increase participation. 

Separate from the state's Administrator Portal, Sports Connect also offers a robust integrated platform to assist clubs with player and coach registration, fee collection, and website management. Learn more by clicking here. 

Player & Coach Registration for the 2021-2022 Seasonal Year (e.g. Fall 2021 - Spring 2022) is available for configuration. Please see the Getting Started guide for assistance. 

Register Players

All players applying for membership must do so through an affiliated member club. Note: Travel players may only submit an application through one member club per seasonal-year (see Playing Policies, Forms, & Guidelines).

To access the new seasonal year in Sports Connect, clubs must complete the Annual Affiliation form

Member clubs have the option of submitting player registrations through one of the following methods:

(A) Sports Connect Club Platform

(B) Upload Player Information

(C) Manually Enter Player Information

Seasonal Year Fees: $15/Travel Player, $9/Recreation Player, $0/TOPSoccer Player

Register Coaches

All coaches (i.e., travel, recreation, and TOPSoccer) must submit NJYS approved compliance documents in their Sports Connect account for verification (if not previously verified), including Coaching Education *(Travel Only), Concussion Education, and annual SafeSport training. See the compliance requirements below:

All adults applying for a coach member pass must also submit and clear an annual background check with NJ Youth Soccer. 

**For Recreation organizations that conduct their own background checks, the organization must complete a "Certification of Criminal Background Screening Compliance for Recreational Youth Coaches."


Instructions for Registration

For coaches that previously registered through njyouthsoccer.com, please log in to your account through the “Log-In’ tab on njyouthsoccer.com. For an instructional video, click here. For the registration link, click hereNOTE: If your account is unable to be found, use the  registration process below. 

All other coaches, please create a new account through the ‘Register’ tab on the top right corner of njyouthsoccer.com. For an instructional video, click here. For the registration link, click here

TIP: When registering, be sure to use the exact variation of the first name, last name, and date of birth that you have previously used to avoid creating a duplicate account that requires new uploads for all compliance documents. 


Seasonal Year Fees: $15/Travel Coach, $9/Recreation Coach, $9/TOPSoccer Coach

Team Assignment

Once players and coaches are registered, a club administrator can assign them to a team.  Prior to team assignment, the team needs to be created in the new seasonal year through either of the two methods:

 (1) Migrate Existing Teams From a Previous Year*
 (2) Create New Teams

*Team migration does not migrate players and coaches with the team. Only the team name and code will be migrated to the next age group. 

For instructions on rostering players/admins through the state platform, click here.

Once all players and coaches are assigned, you may proceed to the team activation step. All players and coaches must be compliant (e.g, verified) prior to activation. For requests related to verification, please contact your assigned district commissioner. 

For team activation, pass printing, and roster printing instructions, click here

*Once teams are 'activated the ONLY way to move a player off the roster is through transfer or release. When forming teams, please take careful note of the Member Policies (e.g. Roster Sizes, Transfer Windows and Limits, Minimum Number of Players, Playing Up Age Limits).
