Club Application Instructions

New Club Applications are processed via BARS. Please log in and in the Member Area, click “Add Club.”

When submitting a New Club Application, please make sure that the Coach is a Club Coach. This is a different classification than a Sports Performance Coach, as the Club Coach has completed and passed a background check.  Background checks can be processed through your membership profile by logging in and, on the Main Menu, clicking on Coaching Certifications, then Background Checks. 

Please note that only the Club Director may add or remove Club Administrators. Please note that all club administrators will receive notifications for Club Transfers. 

Club memberships should be renewed prior to the expiration date to maintain their affiliated athletes.
