Welcome back to the 2017 season!!!

LYSC is gearing up for the 2017 season and requesting all Recreation coaches to let us know if they are returning for the upcoming season.   We are also seeking NEW coaches in all age divisions and want to ensure we include you in all club communication going forward regarding the 2017 season.

Cal North (our parent organization) has rolled out a new registration program (Bonzi) for this year.  It is important that ALL coaches sign up in the system to ensure we have your current data in the system.   

STEP 1

Please review the 2017 Age Matrix to confirm what age group you are interested in coaching this year as it may have changed since last year.    We will have U9,10,11,12,13,14,15, etc. this year versus the normal U10, U12, U14 and U16 categories.  We will continue to move teams to "Age Pure" meaning rosters will have players all in the same birth year.   There will be limits to players "playing up" an age division so teams will fare better against teams against other leagues that may be age pure.

STEP 2

All returning coaches (head or assistant) are requested to complete the following form to be added to our 2017 Coach Communication list.  Please click here and complete this today so we have an idea of our coaches in age division going into registration.   

Please feel free to pass this e-mail along to assistant coaches and parents who helped out last year that may want to sign up this year.

We may close registration early in any age division that has limited coaches.

 

Your coach coordinators for this year will be:

 

REC Coach Coordinator:        Jose Alarcon      reccoachcoordinator@lincolnsoccer.org

Under 6:                                  Misty Reinhardt  u6@lincolnsoccer.org

Under  7 & 8:                           Kurtis Aronsen   u8@lincolnsoccer.org

Under 9 & above:                    Eric Noftz           u10to19@lincolnsoccer.org

  

 


ALL COACHES

 

To ensure we have the correct information, please verify it in the new software program that Cal North has rolled out this year by signing in:

2017 Bonzi Coach Registration

Your login is the e-mail address used last year when registering your children. If you can not remember the e-mail, please follow the troubleshooting guides.  

 

NEW COACHES ONLY

You must get a Livescan before you can participate in practices or games. You still need to get a Livescan even though you may have gone through this procedure before with another organization.  You MUST have completed your profile in the Bonzi online system FIRST before getting the livescan done so Cal North may match the results when back from DOJ.   The Bonzi system will send you a confirmation e-mail when you have completed the online registration.  Attached is the livescan form you will need to take to the UPS store to get the scan done and there will be no charge to you.

To get the livescan form to print,

* Log back into your Bonzi account  to upload your color picture (“my member account”) (no hats or sunglasses please!)

* Hit the button for “background check” and the system will prompt you to print the form to take to capital live scan

If this doesn't work:

Please on this link:    Coach Livescan

* Please use your LEGAL name as it appears on your driver's license in order for the Department of Justice to match your scan.
