STEP 1. Copy Existing Players

STEP 1. Adding Players


STEP 2. Registering Coaches

Coaches will be registering themselves through Bonzi's online registration process. This ensures a smooth background check process. Each club will have their Coaches Registration Page Activated. You will communicate to your coaches to go online to your club's front end registration page.

With this process NISL will be invoicing your club for each background check run. The fees remain the same. If you would like to have your coaches pay for their own background checks please give us a call at Bonzi. We will need to set up a merchant account for your website in order to accept the registrations.

Once coaches submit their registration their background check will automatically run and the results will update in your Bonzi club software.

NOTE: DO NOT add coaches administratively as they will not have the background check run automatically and will not be eligible to coach until they register on the site.

Only Cleared coaches will be ready to assign to rosters


STEP 3. Uploading Player & Coach Photos and Birth Certificates

Once you have registered your players you will be able to upload player or coaches photos and birth certificates.
Follow the Steps outlined below.
Instructions on how to update images and birth certificates are also included below.


STEP 4. Create and Assign Teams

STEP 5. Submit Teams to the League (If you haven’t already registered your team to N.I.S.L)

Bonus: Adding Game Locations

Northern Illinois Soccer League is adhering to the Governor's Office guidance specifying no interclub competition.  

As an essential convenience for clubs in recognition of pandemic-related restrictions and enrollment/team formation/tuition collection uncertainty, NISL has designed 2020-21 registration so clubs have player insurance and, when needed, official rosters, for practices, camps, intraclub scrimmages, etc. at an advantageously lower cost than full team registration.  Beneficially, Spring 2020 team registration credits may be used to offset these 2020-21 player registration fees.
