Compliance Uploads
In the 2019-2020 seasonal year, coaches are required to upload compliance documents for viewing and verification by NJ Youth Soccer. There are different thresholds of requirements based on the program type in which a coach participates. Additionally, adults who are in regular contact with youth (aside from coaches) have compliance requirements.
Where to Upload Documents

Coaches will upload documents to their member profile on their club's NJYS registration site during or after their 2019-2020 registration. Coaches may use the member log-in button in the top left-hand corner of their club's registration site.
