Coaches, board members and others directly involved with our players ARE REQUIRED to register with BOTH NCLA and USA Lacrosse, and also to allow for a NCSI Security Background check via USA Lacrosse. All Coaches must also complete Athlete Abuse Prevention Training, provided through US Lacrosse. (Due to parental and legal consent issues, coaches under 18 are not required to get a background check.)
Please choose the appropriate link below to register on our website or go to the REGISTER HERE tab on the left side of the home page and select "Coach, Board Member Reg" from the dropdown menu. You will be directed to a login screen.
From the login screen you will be taken to your account. Please select your name by clicking on the green button next to your name that says “eligible” to register for this program.
You will be taken to your account info page where you will have the opportunity to correct, change and add info. Please note that after your phone numbers it will ask whether you want your number Public, on the Roster, or Private. Every coach and board member should have at least one phone number public at minimum.
DO NOT CHANGE the USA Lacrosse number; the system will check your USA Lacrosse status and let you know if renewal is necessary
Once you have updated all info, please hit submit.
You will be taken to a page of waivers. At the top of the page you will be asked what level your USA Lacrosse membership is for, please check “youth”. At bottom you will be asked to check off which rule book you want. Hit "submit" afterwards, and then a window should pop up so you can click on the "complete" button.
After you sign up on nclax.org, go to your USA Lacrosse account page for the QUICK LINKS list. It looks like this:
ALL PAID & VOLUNTEER COACHES AND BOARD MEMBERS over the age of 18 need to click on Background Check to start that process. It will require your social security number and agreement to the background check. This is required in order to comply with NCLA and USA Lacrosse.
FOR COACHES ONLY: Click on the SafeSport Training/Athlete Abuse Training link in your USA Lacrosse account and begin that process.
You will receive a confirmation email from the NCLA and USA Lacrosse separately. COACHES: That confirmation email has a link to get a W9 (if you need a new one, email Treasurer John Walsh) and a link to the CONNY Rules tests for all coaches, paid and volunteer.
Thank you for taking the time to do this. NCLA is covering the cost for all US Lacrosse memberships and Background Checks. Should you have any questions, please contact Patricia Mee: firstname.lastname@example.org.
