MYSA Adult Registration

Greetings, and thank you for volunteering for the Wakefield Soccer Association.

Safety Above ALL

All adults associated with WSA age 18 and older are required to register directly with the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) using the new Adult Registration system which will include a CORI and National Background Check, and State and National Sex Offender Registry Search.

Even if you were previously registered and have an up-to-date CORI status, registration into the new system is REQUIRED.

Coaches/volunteers under age 18 must also register with MYSA using the new system but they will not go through the CORI and background checks.   They will need to complete the concussion training but not the Abuse Prevention training in order to get their coaching credentials.

 

NOTE:  This process will take more time than the previous registration process.  Do not wait until the last minute to register!!!

If you were previously registered with WSA, you should have received the letter via email on June 28 from MYSA explaining the purpose of the enhanced requirements.
