Risk Management Adult Registration System

Overview

Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association has a Risk Management Policy to: communicate guidelines and related materials that are intended to foster safe experiences, and initiate risk management registration and background checks for adults participating in US Youth Soccer activity through its affiliated member organizations. Therefore adults (18 years and older) participating in ENYYSA sanctioned activities must have a background check.

Background Checks and Clearance to Participate in Soccer Activities

ENYYSA has developed a convenient, cost-effective way for you to fulfill the requirement of a background check if you are an adult participating in ENYYSA activities. This on-line method is available to any adult who can complete ALL of the required information and affirmatively check the agreement box. You must enter your name as it appears on your Social Security Card.  If you are unable to complete all of this information, you must refer to the Alternate Process for Background checks at enysoccer.com or by requesting a paper copy from the state office.
