Coaching Requirements

To coach in the CYC Program the following CYC mandated requirements must be completed before the roster turn-in date. 

Coaching Concepts ID Card

Requirements: All Soccer Managers 1st Grade and above, and all other Managers 3rd Grade and above.

All managers and coaches are required to complete the program. The program is mandated by the Archdiocese. Managers who do not have an ID number cannot be placed on the CYC roster and will be unable to coach. There is no grace period. The ID card must be presented to the official (umpire/referee) before the start of all CYC sanctioned games. More information is available HERE.

For those of you that do not have access to a computer, you can still obtain your card by attending a scheduled ID card session. These sessions will no longer be held at the parishes, but will be scheduled at the CYC office location. For available sessions, click HERE.

Please do not arrive before the published starting times. Registration will not start early. Please schedule your plans to arrive during the last hour to avoid waiting in line. Facilities are in use until the published starting times. Please remain in your car if you arrive early to a session. Additional (duplicate) CYC Photo ID cards may be purchased at the time of registration.

Because this is a photo ID, the applicant must be present to have his or her picture taken. All the ID sessions are open to anyone. You will also need to bring one of the following for each applicant, for verification of birth date (the item must have the applicant's correct name and birth date on it):

  • Birth Certificate (can be a copy)
  • Baptismal Certificate (can be a copy)
  • Current or Expired CYC Photo ID Card (cannot be a copy)
  • Passport (cannot be a copy)
