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.

Player & Coach Registration for the 2021-2022 Seasonal Year (e.g. Fall 2021 - Spring 2022) is now available for configuration. Please see the steps below to get started:

(1)   Complete the Annual Affiliation Form (Formerly Club Questionnaire)

 This will allow you to gain access to the 2021-2022 seasonal year and indicate readiness for certificates of insurance when issued. 

(2) Migrate Existing Teams From 2020-2021 to 2021-2022

‘Migrate Teams’ will copy the existing team name and move it up one age group in the next seasonal year. This feature will not migrate players or coaches assigned to the teams.

(3) Create New Teams for 2021-2022

For any ‘new teams’ that did not exist last season (e.g., a new small-sided team or adding a new team to an age group), create them in the new seasonal year. 

(4) Register Players/Allocate and Assign Players to Teams

Sports Connect Club Platform: 

Player Upload Portal:

(5) Coach Registration

As a reminder, all coaches must present a SafeSport certificate dated after June 1, 2021 OR SafeSport Refresher 4. Previously verified concussion and coaching licenses remain verified.

(6) Activate Teams  

Once teams are 'final' (e.g. you are no longer deciding which players are moving and the ONLY way to move a player off the roster is through transfer or release), you may activate the teams. Teams must meet the minimum activation criteria displayed on the state platform. 

(7) Print Passes [Permitted August 1]

(8) Pay Monthly Invoice [Available August 15]

When forming teams, please take careful note of the Member Policies (e.g. Roster Sizes, Transfer Windows and Limits, Minimum Number of Players).

*NJ Youth Soccer will begin processing insurance certificates on or about August 1st, 2021 for member clubs after the prerequisites above have been completed. Certificates for the current seasonal year (i.e. 2020-2021) are valid through August 31st, 2021. All dates are subject to change.

Register Coaches

Travel Adult Member Passes (i.e. Travel Coaches)

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

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


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


How to Register

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 here.

NOTE: 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. 


Recreation Adult Member Passes (i.e. Recreation Coaches)

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. For organizations using the Sports Connect club platform, coaches will obtain a background check through NJYS. For organizations that are submitting a data file of coaches to NJYS, the organization must complete a "Certification of Criminal Background Screening Compliance for Recreational Youth Coaches."
