SASC Coach / Manager Registration

All adults working with SASC players in either the Recreational program or the Competitive program must complete the registration requirements shown below. This includes Coaches, Assistant Coaches, parent helpers, Age Group Coordinators, team managers (for competitive teams), and anyone who could be "in charge" of the players at any time. For simplicity, the rest of this page will just use the term "Coach".

Note that Competitive Coaches may have additional requirements.

Please make sure to use your full legal name on all documents and forms.

Registration Process Summary

The Adult registration process is managed via the GotSport website.

GotSport Account/Login

  • All returning coaches log in using this link

  • All coaches new to SASC will need to create an account using this link.
    • Please add a photo to your account, it should be a head and shoulders, passport style photo with no hats or sunglasses. This will be used for your coach pass if required

    • Note that coaches who were previously registered/cleared as SASC coaches, but logging into GotSport for the first time, will likely already have an account created. From the GotSport Login page, select the 'forgot password' function. You must use the same email address you have used in the past. You need to add your birthdate to your account to enable the transfer of your previously completed LiveScan. Please do that first.

GotSport Dashboard

Once you are logged in to GotSport, select the 'Dashboard' tab on the left side of the top menu bar to see the status of your required elements. Note that the requirements shown will differ depending if you are are registering as a Recreational coach, Competitive coach, or both.
  • Each requirement will be shown as either 'Fulfilled' or 'Required'.

  • In order to complete any unfulfilled requirement, click on the corresponding 'More Info' link and follow the instructions. You will need to follow a link to an external website to complete the certification. Make sure you use the same email address for these sites, as this is how your completed certification is tied back to your GotSport Dashboard

This document has step-by-step explanations for completing the various requirements.

Detailed Registration Requirements

All Coaches must complete the following four requirements:
  1. LiveScan Fingerprinting
    • LiveScan requires you to go to a fingerprinting facility with this pre-filled out form form.
    • The following location will perform this at no charge to SASC coaches:
        UPS Store (shopping center w/Bed, Bath & Beyond on Stevens Creek @ Lawrence Expressway)
        5255 Stevens Creek Boulevard
        Santa Clara, CA 95051
        (408) 243-1855

    • Coaches/Managers usually need to perform this step for SASC only once.
      The only reason this step is needed is if:
      • It has NEVER been completed for SASC before, or
      • There has been a 2-year interruption in coach/manager registration.
    • Note that if you were previously registered as an adult with SASC, your LiveScan status will be updated from the old system.

  2. Background Check
    • This is an online background check.

  3. SafeSport Certification
    • This is a Federal requirement for all youth coaches.
    • For first-time coaches, the initial SafeSport certification takes approx. 60-90 minutes to complete.
    • For returning coaches, the SafeSport "refresher" certification takes approx. 30 minutes to complete.

  4. Introduction to Safety
    • This is a legal requirement from the State of California
    • This includes concussion and sudden cardiac arrest training.
Requirements 2,3,4 above must be completed annually (generally in the Fall).
