State Associations must conduct background screenings as well as SafeSport training for players 18 years and older, as per US Soccer Policy 212-3, ONLY when there is a younger player on the team. Requirements need to be met within 45 days of the players 18th birthday. Please refer to US Soccer, Policy 212-3—US Soccer Athlete and Participant Safety Policy – Standards for Organization Members

Note: *”Heads Up” is a Concussion training component implemented by ENYYSA that is only required for Coaches.
- Risk Management Changes
How to complete Risk Management/Background Checks:
There is no risk management “link” as in the past. You can no longer click a link and create an account for yourself. All volunteers must be submitted through their club through the GotSport system. Contact your local club for instructions on creating/logging into an account.
How to Upload Coaches/Managers into GotSport:
Once coaches/managers are in the GotSport system, they can access their profile, which will allow them to complete their risk management requirements. When they click on the DASHBOARD in their profile, the 3 risk management requirements will be listed:
Background Check – once every two years (changing to a yearly renewal due to US Youth Soccer requirements)
Heads Up Concussion Awareness – once every two years
Safe Sport – yearly renewal with a refresher course
Over to the right of each it will say MORE INFO and when they click on that, it will take them to that test to be completed. (For questions, contact Diana at ENYYSA State office - 516-766-0849).

RE: Risk Management
Please remind all volunteers associated with your organization that they must complete their background check, Heads Up Concussion Awareness and SafeSport.
Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association’s risk management initiative is much more than background checks for coaches and volunteers. The principal aim is to provide a reasonable level of safety and security for our players while they are participating in soccer activities.
Background checks on all volunteers have been a major focus for ENYYSA. All volunteers and staff are required to follow these procedures, by federal law, and as stated in ENYYSA Risk Management Policy (attached), in order to interact with youth players.
Risk Management Policy A.1.b states:
The goal of initiating risk management registration and background checks including but not limited to coaches, assistant coaches, managers, program administrators (including but not limited to individuals who decide policy; or have control or authority over currency), officers, board members, certified referees, trainers (whether volunteer or paid), and volunteers/persons who have regular control and authority over players.
In addition, Certified Coaches, Volunteers and Players Over 18 are required to complete a Background Check.
State Associations must conduct background screenings as well as SafeSport training for players 18 years and older, as per US Soccer Policy 212-3, ONLY when there is a younger player on the team. Requirements need to be met within 45 days of the players 18th birthday. Please refer to US Soccer, Policy 212-3—US Soccer Athlete and Participant Safety Policy – Standards for Organization Members.
