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.

Beginning with the 2020-2021 seasonal year, all member clubs will utilize the state's Sports Connect Administrator Portal for essential membership functions like player and coach registration, 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. 


Club Presidents or Registrars that have not yet gained access to the Sports Connect State Platform should contact [email protected]
