My my My my

Thank you so much for your interest in coaching in the WWPSA Recreation League. Your coaching will help the children in our community learn soccer and have fun while doing it. To ensure the safety of our children, there are three federally required steps that need to be completed as outlined below:

  • Background Check
  • Concussion Training
  • SafeSport Abuse Prevention Certificate

Note: You will need to furnish your driver’s license number and social security number during this process. Please feel free to email   with any questions.

  1. Create your account and trigger the background check by following the instructions in the short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRGTTrqnYko&feature=youtu.be. Here are a couple additional notes as you watch the video:
    1. At ~40 secs in the video, choose Recreational
    2. At ~1:10 in the video, it says to ensure your ID number matches what has been provided.  Choose the option for West Windsor/Plainsboro (with an associated ID number) 
  2. Complete both SafeSport and Concussion training. Here are the instructions to complete both certs. Make sure you save them to your computer as you will need to upload them in the next step. You do not have to complete either course in one sitting; you should be able to log in at a later time and pick up where you left off.
    1. SAFESPORT (2 hours): All NJYS coaches must complete an annual SafeSport training. This must be dated January 1st, 2020 or later. There is a refresher after initial training that must be completed annually and uploaded to the site below. To access the initial training (SafeSport account) or take the refresher course, click the link below.

  3. Log into the website with the account you created to: https://njysa.sportsaffinity.com/. Click on Certificates and upload both your SafeSport and Concussion certificate in the appropriate areas. Although not required for rec coaches, upload your coaching certificate if you have it.

Congratulations! You have successfully completed all your training and background check.
