CORI Requirements and Annual Adult Registration

The state of Massachusetts, Mass Youth Soccer (MYSA), and WYS follow Adult Registration and CORI security background check procedures for all adults working with children. This now requires a mandatory ANNUAL Adult registration process with MYSA. You must be registered first to request the link to complete the required CORI background check. CORIs must be valid through the soccer season. 

ANNUAL ADULT REGISTRATION:

Please click the link below and use the green returning user LOGIN button if you already have an account or the blue Create New Account button on that page (confusingly located in the Returning Users log in box) to access the ADULT registration form.

Some tips about completing these items: 

  • You need to have a color head shot photo on the device you are using that can be uploaded. Editing tools are available within the system for cropping and resizing. 
  • The selected photo must be a CLEAR, HEAD Only picture of you with NO others in the picture, no sunglasses, no hats, and sufficiently well lit to clearly see your face. 
  • Our organization name is: Westwood Youth Soccer
  • Be sure to use your LEGAL first and LEGAL last name
  • Your role will most likely be Coach or Assistant Coach; multiple roles may be checked off

Once you have completed the MYSA Adult Registration process, you will receive a link via email to complete your CORI Submission Request. This email will be sent from noreply@sportsaffinity.com. For some people, the email has been ending up in spam folders, so please look for it there if you don't see it in your inbox. 

This email will detail your CORI status and expiration date and includes instructions on filing a new CORI form if needed. We recommend that CORIs be valid through at least July 2017 to avoid you having to go through this process within a soccer year.

CORI BACKGROUND CHECK

Use the link in email to access the CORI form which should be pre-populated with your account information. THIS is critical to complete. If you do not get the MYSA email from noreply@sportsaffinity.com, you should call the help desk listed below!

  • You need to use the same logon and password that you used to set up the registration form to login to complete your CORI
  • Within the CORI, input only the last 6 digits of your SSN as requested not your whole SSN

WYS is NOT able to see ANY of this information. It is kept CONFIDENTIAL. All that we receive back will be your name and your clearance status.

WYS must receive this clearance from MYSA that an individual has been CORIed before you will be allowed to be on the field to help with the kids. We cannot submit your name on a roster until we have received the CORI clearance. CORIs are then good for 3 years!

The very final step in the CORI process, if a new form was required, is to provide validation of identification. Two documents are needed.

First, print out a copy of the 2 page CORI Acknowledgement Form/Subject Information form and SIGN the form on the first pageAlong with a copy of the front of your Driver's License as ID, either SNAIL MAIL it to the address below or get those two documents into electronic form (scan or just take a legible picture) and email it to the email listed below:

EMAIL (preferred):

registrar@westwoodsoccer.org

Or Snail Mail

WYS CORI Submitter
38 Far Reach Road
Westwood, MA 02090
 

Save your printout or a copy of the document onto your computer.  


CHECKING TO SEE IF YOUR CORI IS VALID

Once you login to the MYSA system and get into your My Accounts section, you will see a tab labeled Applications. If you click into that, you will be able to see that your season is the current soccer year, your Organization is Westwood Youth Soccer, your Risk Status is Approved or not, and your CORI Expire date which must be beyond July 31 of the current soccer year.
