Please be sure you have a valid risk management pass from NYSWYSA or any US Youth Soccer state association (IE. ENY, EPA, PAW, etc).  No coach will be permitted into a NYSWYSA coaching course without a valid background check administered through a USYS state association's risk management process.  The NYSWYSA risk management process takes approximately two weeks to complete. You may begin that process by going here

Within two weeks of the course, NYSW Coach Education will look to enter the candidate in another upcoming course in NYSW.
