Soccer Coach CORI Process & Required Training

Fall 2021/Spring 2022

August 2021

Hanover Youth Soccer coaches and all adult volunteers need to submit for CORI clearance and also take new trainings this season. There is a whole new system this year and there are new courses each adult needs to complete. Hanover Youth Soccer is governed by Mass Youth Soccer who also holds liability insurance for all our coaches. Mass Youth Soccer in adherence to new federal guidelines has partnered with US Soccer Connect for our Adult registration systems. If you participate with Hanover Youth Soccer and are 18 years or older you need to complete this program. Completion and CORI clearance will enable us to produce your coaching credential – your annual Coach Lanyard. Coaches and Adults are not allowed to work with HYAA teams and kids without full completion of this program – and Coaches are expected to have and wear their Coach Lanyard at all practices and games.

FAQ- Yes you need to submit a CORI with MA Youth Soccer, even if you are CORI'd with HYAA, Hanover Lax, the school system, your work, Hanover Hockey, are a police officer, etc. There are no central databases and all organizations maintain their own CORI listing. Your MA Youth Soccer CORI through Stack Sports is good for 3 years. A reminder will be sent when your are going to expire. Keeping your CORI current helps you stay registered with HYAA Soccer and can expedite our preseason prep for coaches.
