Background Check

All Washington Youth Soccer Coaches and Volunteers must register online to complete a national background check clearance (Risk Management Application) prior to be involved with any youth programs.

Please read the information below before submitting background check application.

When applying for background check you will be required to complete three (3) Compliance Certificates, as required by Federal and State laws. There is NO financial cost to you for the Compliance Certifications.

Compliance Certifications are as follows:

  • Safe Sport (SS)
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)
  • Concussion Compliance (CC)

At the completion of each course you will be given a certificate.  Please save this certificate to your computer and upload to your account or during the background check process. If you need help uploading your certificates please contact Affinity Customer Support (1.888.213.3999).

Please, click on the link for instructions to complete each certificate:

How to do the Background Check and required certificates

Why do I need to complete all of the certificates?

  • These certificates are mandated by federal and state laws, along with US Soccer and USYS. Washington Youth Soccer goal is to be the top association and make soccer the preeminent sport in the USA. These extra safety precautions are a step in that direction.
  • If you do not have a current approved background check, you will not have any access to teams or administrative functions in Affinity.

If you are a parent of a minor that is going to referee (non-USSF certified) small sided games and are required to do a back ground check:

  • You must first call Affinity Customer Support at 1.888.213.3999.
  • Customer Support will assist you in creating an admin account for a minor 
  • The minor will need their own Affinity username and password to complete the process

Thank you for volunteering!!!
