We encourage anyone interested in coaching to volunteer. All of our coaches volunteer and they are our club’s most important asset.

If you did not volunteer to coach soccer (aka “Team Admin”) when you registered your child to play, then you need to REGISTER HERE.

As a part of our volunteer process, you must successfully complete a background check. In order to make this process quick and easy, Brookside Soccer Club requires that you complete the following request. By providing this information electronically it can be safely and securely transmitted to our background check vendor instantly. This enhanced process can remove days of waiting from the overall process. Please remember to do the following:

  1. Complete all fields
  2. Use your legal name and information and add any maiden or previous names to the additional names section
  3. Review your answers for accuracy and spelling
  4. If you have any questions or special circumstances you should call 913-787-1536 before submitting this request

*FOR COACHES THAT COMPLETED THE BACKGROUND CHECK SPRING 2014, YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLETE AGAIN FOR THE FALL SEASON.
