For USCL or KATS league affiliation-Register under our league affiliation and pay only the cost of passes
1. Club or team goes to www.usclubsoccer.org ; Move your mouse over Resources in the black bar on top, and then in the drop down, click BECOMING A MEMBER.
2. Have 5 choices for registration – 2 of which are most applicable for a travel team using the passes in league play: CLUB (use this if you plan to register 3 or more teams with USCLUB) & LEAGUE TEAM (use this if you are an individual team looking to register & need a league affiliate). Registering as a LEAGUE TEAM (instead of a club) means you register under our league affiliation and as such only pay the cost of your passes. A club membership means you must register 3 or more teams (and players) with USCLUB and will be required to pay a $1000. deposit, which pass costs are deducted from that account. So, for many teams, registering a league team is easier to swallow financially! You can register more than one team under that established account - as you are registering your club, but under the league affiliation. So, enter once, and your club is registered for future teams.

Who Must Submit a Background Check Application: All staff who are required to be registered and are coaching players U20 and below must complete the application. This includes all coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers assigned to a competitive team. If your team is registered as a recreational team or super rec team under US Club Soccer rules (i.e. teams that do not travel, or do not play in competitions outside the club, in-house league, or other similar programs in their area), minimally the head coach is required to be registered and complete a background check. (See Player Rule 105 and Policy 11.01). These staff may not participate with a team until they have completed the background check process and obtained a staff card.
When Must the Application be Submitted: The risk application must be submitted every two years, after July 1st of each year, in the year the staff passcard expires. Staff passcards will not be issued until the individual’s application is reviewed and approved. Rec coaches must only complete an application in the first year they are registered via the rec roster.
How is the Application Submitted: The background check application is accessed and submitted online. If you are a staff member who needs to complete a risk form, click here to access the online form on the Web site Registration tab.
