Apply for an ID Card

CYC ID card requests have increased due to the new requirement which requires all players, regardless of age, to have ID cards.

Reminder, all coaches must have a CYC ID card, also. Coaches (who are 18 years of age and over/out of high school) need your Coach’s ID number which can be found on your coach’s certificate. This is obtained once you have completed the CYC Coach’s Training program.

After your card order has been approved, you will receive an email stating that your card is “in process.”
When you placed your order, the email with your receipt also had a link to your temporary waiver. Please be sure to print out the waiver. This waiver acts as a substitute for the ID card and is good for three weeks from the date you placed your order.

Our staff is working as quickly and efficiently as possible to approve, print, and mail out the CYC cards.
If you have not received your card within 14-17 days of placing your order, please contact the CYC Office at (314) 792-7256.

All coaches and players should obtain their cards prior to the start of their season.

Cards are being processed. Please retain your receipt as this is used as your ID Card waiver for 3 weeks after applying for your card.
