There are several parents that have been scanned because of work: SFUSD, UCSF, CYO Coach or other organizations. Doesn't matter. Organizations are not allowed to share your data between agencies. LiveScan is a one-time usage scan and it is common for coaches to have been scanned by multiple organizations. You must be scanned specifically for CalNorth (ORI Code AE689).

Coaches scanned and cleared for CalNorth last year do NOT need to be LiveScanned again for the current 2018/19 season. IMPORTANT: This process can be quick or it can take months to clear and then finally updated in the system. We urge all coaches/managers to get scanned as early as possible so there are no delays in activating teams or making passes.

  • Note - The number one factor in delay of clearance is failing to use one's legal name for both the LiveScan form and their Affinity Sports account.


  • 1st - Register in the SFYS Coach Pool in the StackSports US Soccer Connect system. LiveScan results are connected to this account. One must register here each year to authorize access to background clearance status.
  • 2nd - Make LiveScan appointment (some locations are first come first serve)

    • Photo ID = Valid Government-issued photo identification (Driver's License, Passport, Military or US Resident Card ...)
    • CalNorth LiveScan form (print from Bonzi registration system or from here)

  • After your appointment, send a copy of COMPLETED LiveScan form to SF Youth Soccer.
    The form can be returned via snail mail, fax, scan/email or drop off. The completed form will have an ATI # on it, which is critical data for matching the clearance with your record.

** You are free to choose (at your own expense) an alternate authorized vendor, but we recommend using a Capital Livescan vendor since CalNorth has a contract with Capital and there should be no cost to SF Youth Soccer coaches at a CLS location.
