Cincy SC coaches must be registered with either US Youth Soccer or US Club Soccer to compete in league and tournament games. Most of our coaches and teams are registered with US Youth Soccer. Our youngest teams (U8, U9, and some U10) may be registered with US Club soccer.


In 2018, US Youth Soccer and it’s local subsidiary Ohio South Youth Soccer Association (OSYSA) implemented US Soccer Connect, aka Stack, a new system for registering players and coaches with US Youth Soccer and its member leagues. Coaches will create a member account, which is permanent, and then will just need to be registered as a coach each year with Cincy SC. The coach member account includes the risk assessment (background check) and Lindsay’s Law (sudden cardiac arrest) verification. Coaches need to upload a photo and their completed concussion certificate (valid for 3 years) into their account. Stack connects to the DCC to pull coaching licenses as long as the email address is the same on both accounts.


All coaches need to complete the step to register with Cincy SC in Stack each year.
