Risk Management


Risk Management Forms

Risk Management disclosure form for coaches, managers, and team admins

Risk Management disclosure form for boards members, volunteers, and administrators & coaches who do not need a sideline pass


In order to protect and provide a safe and healthful environment to children participating in SDSSA’s sanctioned soccer clubs, leagues, programs, and tournaments, all SDSSA and Affiliate Board members and employees, coaches, assistant coaches, and any other volunteer who is expected to have regular contact with youth players must complete a volunteer disclosure statement. It must be filled out at the start of your involvement with players/teams and needs to be redone each fall as long as you are involved with players in any capacity.

Non-Disclosure of Social Security Procedure


For those who do not want to disclose their social security numbers via the SDSSA online disclosure site, may use this procedure. Please contact the State Administrator at the SDSSA office and they will mail you the fingerprint cards (605-371-2255). This is so we can conduct both state and national checks (The SDSSA background check vendor has secure access to our online sight to conduct random and batched checks)

Those not wanting to go this route may use the procedure above. We have to do both FBI and DCI because DCI only does background checks for South Dakota and does not include national information. The information is released directly to the SDSSA background vendor, who reviews and sends a report to RM for approval.
