IYSA Requirements

Initial Requirement for Every Coach

Thank you for volunteering to be a coach for a Shorewood Soccer team!  We appreciate your time and effort - and we're sure the parents and players do too!

There are requirements set forth by US Soccer and IYSA (the governing bodies of Shorewood Soccer) that all coaches must complete. 

Note:  If you have valid credentials from another soccer club with similar requirements, those can be used to obtain your badge for Shorewood Soccer.

  1. Coaches will log into a special IYSA Membership group in SportsEngine and follow the requirements shown in their dashboard - use 'New Coach' or 'Already Have Account' buttons on the right side of page.

  1. Coaches are to request a discount code  which makes their background check free for them.

    Email your request to, with wording similar to the example below:



    I am requesting a Background Check code for Spring 2024 season.  

    Here is my info:

    First  Last    Position       Division - Team - Color
    Bob    Roberts Asst. Coach    U7-1 Burgundy


    A code will be provided within 24hrs (it is provided by a human - so be patient).  Do not delay completing these requirements. Begin the process as soon as you are able.  Some portions may take a few hours.  You will NOT get your badge or coaches bag unless you have completed all of the requirements.

  2. New coaches registering into this system will receive an email with a link to their membership.  Once all requirements are completed, coaches can download proof of compliance to their Android or Apple phone and/or print a PDF as proof of compliance

  3. Coaches need to follow these steps regardless if you are background checked through your job

  4. Coaches shall be prepared to provide proof when coaches badges are passed out

  5. Coaches that do not provide proof will not be allowed to coach
