Getting Started

This page provides information on getting associated with a team, obtaining login accounts for systems and applying for staff credentials.

Team Association

Coaches, Managers and team staff should file a New Team Staff request as soon as possible so that they can be granted access to the various websites used for team and player management.

Existing Staff can also use the form to request assignment to another team or removal from the systems if you are leaving the club.

Account Setup

Team staff will be using the multiple websites to register players, apply for entry to leagues and tournaments and to communicate within your team. With the exception of, these systems require that you use a unique personal account to login and access the team and players. The GotSoccer login is a shared account for the team and will be provided to you by the club staff.

For, you will receive a notice from the website to create your own account when you are assigned to a team.

For Redwood League and Team Snap, a club registrar will setup your account and appropriate access. You will receive a notification from the website when access is ready.

To be on the sideline with the team during a sanctioned match, adults must have valid credentials with the sanctioning organization. Coaches and Managers are required to be credentialed.

There must always be a credentialed adult on the sidelines during an event to supervise the team. If a coach is late for an event, or worse gets removed during the match, there must be another adult to stand in their place for the match to continue. It is recommended that a team consider getting credentials for additional team parents that can supervise during these situations.

Please complete the appropriate background check listed below and send a digital photo to
