  2. You must choose “WYSL – Westchester Youth Soccer League” as your “Club”  (at bottom of the Club pulldown menu).  DO NOT TYPE IN ANYTHING.  DO NOT choose your actual club!! (If you do, you will not be credited.)
  3. Watch your e-mails in case the background provider needs to contact you regarding any questions they might have.
  4. You will receive a confirmation when the screening has been completed.  No need to forward.
  5. You need to do it this way and in this order. 
  6. Any questions, ask your club registrar.  They can tell you if you have been marked “eligible” or not.  This process can take up to ten days.  You do not need to contact the League.  This background check will be good for any affiliated US Club league/club for up to 2 years.
