How to Become a Club

 HOW TO BECOME A NEW CLUB
 
1)      Complete a SC Youth Soccer Affiliation Form (all three pages).
2)      Complete a set of Generic Club Bylaws.
3)      Send the completed Affiliation Form and Bylaws to SC Youth Soccer.
4)      Certify a club registrar (Registrar Workshops are posted HERE)
 
Club bylaws and affiliation forms will be reviewed by the Rules & Compliance Committee and approved or denied by the SC Youth Soccer Board of Directors.

NEW CLUB INFORMATION

 

1) The club president must attend the President’s Workshop. This is a mandatory meeting with fines associated for noncompliance. This meeting is always held the first Saturday in August. Further information can be found on this website HERE

2) All U7 and older age group coaches must have a coaching certificate or license. There is a one seasonal year grace period to become licensed if a coach has never coached for SC Youth Soccer before.

3) All club coaches/managers/board members/volunteers must have a background check completed.

4) Fees for registration vary and can be found on the website HERE

560/40 Rule: New associations containing competitive teams (challenge and/or classic/academy), applying for membership into SCYSA must have a "60/40" split between recreation players and competitive players upon making application. Sixty percent (60%) of the players must be recreation, while no more than forty percent (40%) may be competitive. This applies to all Clubs applying for affiliation after the 2011-12 seasonal year. Any current member Club (2011-12) that either fails to maintain "good standing" or interrupts its membership by failing to re-affiliate in the future will be treated as a "new" club or organization and the 60/40 rule will apply.
