Coaches Information

Live Scan

Per California Assembly Bill 506, effective January 1, 2022, anyone involved in a youth sports organization who spends 32 hours or more per year with children must go through this process.  This is a one-time, NOT annual, requirement for each volunteer, and is regardless of whether they have been Live Scanned previously for any other organization or employer.  

The process we are using requires online advance registration and making a reservation at this website  Each volunteer should choose to register to "Get Fingerprinted at an AYSO Sponsored Event" and then select an event.  The online registration process takes about 10 minutes.  It involves providing relevant personal information and watching a brief video about the process.  At the field, the fingerprinting process will take only 2 minutes.  One brief note - volunteers shouldn't try to enter a "direction" where asked unless their street address actually does include a "North," "East," etc.)

Most importantly, this process is FREE to the volunteer.  If done on this date, the cost will be directly billed to us (Area 1D).  If not done at an AYSO Event like this, volunteers may have to individually pay to go through the Live Scan process, and then seek to be reimbursed by the Region (if applicable).
