REQUIREMENT DESCRIPTIONS
DOB

Date of Birth and gender -- this is used by CJSA to match to the background check

  • Volunteers must be sure their D.O.B. is in their WSA record by going to WSA site homepage > Edit My Account in the lower left corner > open account and entering D.O.B. 
  • This information must also match D.O.B. and gender in the CJSA background check process.
CJSA Background Check

Connecticut Junior Soccer Association requires all adults working with children to complete a background check -- be sure to use the same first name and last name as you are registered or CJSA will not approve you for the roster -- the registrar can change the name you are registered with in the WSA system. DO THIS EARLY SINCE IT IS ONLY UPDATED 3 TIMES A WEEK AND THUS CAN TAKE ALMOST A WEEK TO CLEAR FROM WHEN YOU DO IT.

  • GO TO:  WWW.CJSA.ORG
  • Click on the big red box in the middle of the homepage that says "Background Checks"  
  • Follow prompts to complete -- takes 2-3 minutes to complete
  • Select "Westport" when prompted to "Select Your Organization"
  • Be sure the EXACT name and DOB are the same on WSA and background check
  • Background clearance is good for 3 seasons. So if you did it in the spring, it is counted as being done the preceding fall. For example, if done March 2010, it is considered done September 2009 and thus needs to be redone for Fall 2012.
  • IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE BACKGROUND CHECK PROCESSING, CONTACT LEXIS HELP DESK 866-777-1979. Some browser settings may have to be changed.
