CORI Requirements and MYSA 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 Adult registration process with MYSA and completion of a CORI form, both of which will be valid for 3 years.


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 full 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 a MYSA Adult Registration, you will then go on to complete your CORI Submission/Resubmit Request immediately. CORIs are organization specific, so even if you have a valid CORI form for other activities, it does NOT count for this MYSA/WYS CORI clearance.

  • 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 you have NEVER submitted a CORI with WYS before, is to provide validation of identification. Two documents are needed. This step is NOT required for a CORI RESUBMIT.

First, print out a copy of the two page CORI Acknowledgement Form and SIGN the form on the first page where it has a line for signature of CORI subjectAlong 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)


Or Snail Mail

WYS CORI Submitter

38 Far Reach Road

Westwood, MA 02090 

Signed receipt form and copy of Driver's license required.

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

To find your CORI Acknowledgement form to send in, if you didn't print it out originally, click on the Print Documents link under your picture in the My Accounts section. It is found in the CORI Submission Request line - Receipts & Forms 


Once you login to the MYSA system and get into your My Accounts section, you will see a tab labeled Applications. Click there to find the line for your CORI Submission Request and confirm that your Risk Status is Approved or not and it also shows your CORI Expire date, which must be beyond July 31 of the current soccer year.
