New Coaching Education Courses Have Been Posted!
LA84 Foundation Connection Reaps Huge Benefits for Cal South Coaches
The LA84 Foundation has extended its partnership with Cal South for 2008, with over 40 new courses scheduled through the summer. While the courses are largely subsidized due to this partnership, because space is limited, a deposit of $25 is required to reserve your spot in each clinic. Please view our website at http://www.calsouth.com/la84classes for a full list of courses or to register. To view our the full
Cal South Coaching Education department course schedule for Spring/Summer, please click here.

Heading to a Tournament? Is It Sanctioned by Cal South?
If not, then you need travel papers!
Does the tournament you are looking to attend carry the seal of quality, the Cal South Sanctioned Tournament seal? Even though a tournament or event takes place within the Cal South boundaries, it may not necessarily be sanctioned by Cal South. To find out if the event you are planning to attend is a Cal South Sanctioned Tournament, please click here. If you don't see your event on our Sanctioned Tournament listings, then you will need to apply for travel
papers in order to prove that all players are covered by our insurance. Information and instructions on travel papers can be found by clicking here or you can contact our office at email@example.com for more information.
Traveling out of the country as a Cal South team or group?
Per the USSF, you need to apply for foreign travel papers at least 30 days prior to your departure
It's not as scary as it sounds. Just log in and apply for Cal South travel papers, then fill out the appropriate USSF forms and mail them to the office along with a $50 check made out to USSF. We will then approve your paperwork and forward it on to USSF for their approval. Information and instructions can be found by clicking here.

Risk Management Policy: A Reminder on Card Printing
All administrators MUST complete the Live Scan process; this includes coaches, managers, team parents, board members and tournament directors. A card can NOT be printed until the Corporate Office has received approval from the Department of Justice. The process can take up to 14 business days to complete. If you log into your CORIS account and see an R with a red
circle around it, please contact Lisa Wolfs, Risk Management Coordinator, at 714.451.1520 or email@example.com.Click here for more information on getting your LiveScan done or on hosting an upcoming session. Cal South will be hosting coaching classes and Risk
Management sessions throughout the summer. Check with Cal South in early May to sign up for both types of sessions so you may get them done at the same time.
Registrars: Migrate Your Teams For Gaming Circuit Play
CORIS Updating Vital to Providing Smooth Registration Process
If your registered teams are planning to play in a 2008 Cal South Sanctioned Gaming Circuit, please remember to migrate your teams to the Fall 2008-2009 season once your league of registration has been approved. This will simplify the CORIS-based team registration process for your head coaches and team managers wishing to register their teams for one of the following fall gaming circuits: Central Coast Soccer League, Bakersfield Gaming League (Bakersfield Girls
SL/Golden Empire SL), Presidio Soccer League and the Los Angeles Fútbol Circuit. These gaming circuits utilize the ADG CORIS online registration system. This does not impact Coast Soccer League teams, since CSL does not utilize CORIS.
Registrars: Do Your League Administrators Have Their Logon Information?
Providing Usernames and Passwords Helps Keep Everybody Current
Please be sure to provide your new board members, coaches and team managers with their Cal South Account Member Logon usernames and passwords. This will allow our new members and existing users to update their contact information and other benefits in CORIS. In addition, keeping the most current information in CORIS ensures that all Cal South members receive Cal South Soccer Magazine and other important member mailings or email correspondence.
