Risk Management

Background Checks: Club Admins, Coaches, Managers

In order to protect and provide a safe and healthful environment to children participating in SDYSA’s sanctioned soccer clubs, leagues, programs, and tournaments, all SDYSA employees, coaches, assistant coaches, team managers or any other volunteer who is expected to have regular contact with youth players must complete a Risk Management Disclosure (EVERY YEAR). This costs $10 per individual, every year. This cost can be covered by the club. It must be filled out at the start of your involvement with players/teams and needs to be redone every year as long as you are involved with players in any capacity. Background checks that are done in the 2019-2020 soccer calendar year will expire 8/1/2021.

Glossary

  • Risk Management Disclosure: Completed once a year (August 1st - July 31st), every year, by all SDYSA employees, coaches, assistant coaches, team managers or any other volunteer expected to have regular contact with youth players.
  • Background Check: Background checks are completed on all NEW coaches. Background checks are completed on all returning coaches who are due for a background check.

2019/2020 Process

  • Step I: You must click on the Risk Management Disclosure Link  - It's on the right side of this page in black/gold font. Everyone MUST complete this before stepping on the field with their players!
  • Step II: SAFESPORT TRAINING - Once an individual completes the disclosure form they will prompted to take the USYS SafeSport Training Video. This is VERY beneficial video as it relates to sexual harassment, bullying, grooming and other instances. SDYSA highly encourages all of our coaches to take this training.
  • Step III: For our NEW coaches and returning coaches that are due for a background check. You will receive a direct email from SportEngine. Please follow those directions to complete your background check information.
