Staff Membership Purchase: Two Types

Each club will need to determine how to handle staff memberships.  Below are the two types from which a club can choose.

Direct Membership Purchase - Recommended
With a Direct Membership Purchase, the member purchases their membership themselves.

On Behalf Of (OBO) Membership Purchases
With an OBO Membership Purchase, a club purchases a membership for an individual from the Club's Member Directory. We recommend that members purchase their memberships - but this is a good solution for those who don't have access to a computer or need to make an offline payment.  

How To Purchase Memberships for Staff

With an On Behalf Of (OBO) Membership Purchase, a club purchases a membership for an individual from the Club's Member Directory. We recommend that members purchase their memberships - but this is a good solution for those who don't have access to a computer or need to make an offline payment. Regions may disable a Club's ability to make OBO Membership Purchases if they'd like. 

AUTOMATIC ASSIGNMENT TO CLUB:  When a club purchases a membership for an individual, the individual is automatically assigned to the club. No club assignment request needs to be sent after club purchases a person's membership.

How to Add Individual Staff Members To Club Directory -->

Before a club may purchase a coach or participant membership, the person MUST be in the club's SportsEngine HQ directory. A club may add a person individually or may add multiple people at one time.

How to Import Staff to Club Directory -->

When a club has many staff members to add to their club directory, this import feature may be a good solution. NOTE: Read directions carefully so that REQUIRED INFORMATION is completed on the import template.

 Download the Template -->

The following fields are mandatory: First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth (DOB), Gender. Email. , Physical Address, City, State, Country, Zip Code

NOTE: Please use the correct email address for either the staff member or the player's parent/guardian. Failure to do so will result in technical consequences that lead to member duplicates or merging complications.

Members will receive an email invite that they must accept in order to become an active member in the directory.

Create Staff Group

To purchase multiple staff memberships at one time, it is recommended to create a GROUP in your SportsEngine HQ  AFTER  staff are added to the club's directory.

Purchase Staff Membership

Whether purchasing a staff membership from the club's directory or from the Group and Rosters

  • check the box left of the name of the person(s) or group
  • click on  the three dots (right side of screen)
  • select Buy Membership
  • select  21-22 NCR Adult Coach of Juniors membership type

Only ONE membership type may be selected for purchase.  A $50 NCR-USAV membership allows a coach to register for additional memberships without any additional membership costs.

Participant Purchases Own Membership

This is a Direct Membership Purchase.  North Country Region utilizes SportsEngine quizzard function to easier navigate a person to what type of membership is needed. This is done through a series of questions (QUIZZARD) about the participants date of birth, role, and duration a membership is needed.

A coach, staff member, adult participant,  or parent of a minor participant can purchase a membership on his/her own.

  • North Country Region  Website "JOIN"  Tab - Click Here -->
  • participants can go through the Quizzard Process as described above
  • participants can select a specific membership type to purchase. RECOMMENDED that club participants (staff and players) are directed by the club on which membership option to purchase
  • clubs share the specific membership link to the club's participants RECOMMENDED that club also includes SportsEngine - USAV membership purchase directions

Background Screen (BGS)

If a club chooses to purchase the $14 annual USA Volleyball Background Screen for its adult staff members, it can be done through a discount code.  The discount code is generated through USA Volleyball/NCSI, shared with the requesting club after payment, and applied during the purchasing process.
