All HYAA Coaches and volunteers must be Registered in the HYAA Coach Database. By registering, volunteers will sign our Coach Code of Conduct and be on record as an HYAA Coach so they are covered under our insurance policy.
Coach registration and CORI checks are good for 2 years.
We have created a new Coach Database that is linked to our new secure Coach CORI system with the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) So even if you have registered as a coach before you must register again in the 2019 HYAA Coach Database.
Registration may be completed by clicking REGISTER NOW from our Home page or by following this link. Select the 2019 HYAA Coach Database, you will be directed to fill out your CORI form first (you will need a photo of your Driver's License to upload), then you will be directed to complete the HYAA registration. Please be sure to complete both the CORI submission and the HYAA Registration. You will receive an email confirmation from HYAA as well as one from NCSI Background Screening if everything has been submitted correctly.
This CORI applies to coaches who volunteer with all HYAA programs including Football, Flag Football, Cheerleading, Wrestling, Basketball, Soccer, Baseball and Softball. HYAA Soccer Coaches must also Register and Submit a CORI through MA Youth Soccer as the insurance for our Soccer program is carried by MYS. Please see the Soccer Coaches section of this page for complete details.
Also, please note that even if you have submitted a CORI with another organization/club/school or employer you must submit with HYAA as there is no central database for CORI records.
If you would like to check your CORI status simply log into your HYAA Account and click the PERSONAL tab. Your background status will be listed along with the expiration date.
