  • You must complete the background screening application yourself. Your registrar cannot do this for you. Any individual who completes an application on behalf of another individual is also subject to suspension or other discipline, and in addition may be subject to criminal or civil liability.
  • US Club Soccer’s background screening is conducted by the National Center for Safety Initiatives via SportsEngine’s platform. You may be contacted directly by the screening vendor if there are any questions or additional information is needed.
  • For international applicants or those who do not have a Social Security Number (SSN) or Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), please contact your respective US Club Soccer administrator for instructions.
  • Background screening results are usually available within 3-7 days, but the specific timeframe varies based upon the amount of time it takes counties and states to return results.
  • The application only needs to be completed once even if you are part of multiple clubs/organizations. You will be able to select multiple clubs as part of the background screening application.
