Who Must Complete a Risk Management Application?

Every coach, volunteer, team manager, administrator, director, officers, tournament director volunteer, and employee of each member association and of NCYSA.   Referees are required to register with NCSRA.

Only risk management approved individuals may participate with a member association or the referee association. Only approved individuals may be present on the team’s side of the field.

Individuals under the age of 18 involved with youth soccer players must register with the risk management program.

*NOTE- only individuals 18 and older will be subject to a background check.

Who Must Complete SafeSport Training?

Everyone that completes a Risk Management application is also required to complete the Sexual Abuse Prevention Training as required by federal law.

Minors will complete the age appropriate training module instead of the full adult training.

When Do I Complete a Risk Management Application?

EVERY year you intend to participate with a NCYSA soccer program. This informs your organization and NCYSA of your desire to volunteer or serve.

PLEASE NOTE: Registering in the system DOES NOT grant immediate approval. A background check must be performed, and the resulting report reviewed (if there is a reviewable matter) before approval is granted. Background checks are performed every other seasonal year.

Your risk management liaison will know when it is time to conduct a background check once you have registered in the system.

Registration for the next seasonal year begins in April of each year for the following fall and spring seasons.

When Do I Complete SafeSport Training?

Every year.  The link to the US Center for SafeSport will be included within your Risk Management application, including the appropriate link for minor aged participants.  The initial course can take 60-90 minutes to complete.  Refresher courses will then be required each following year.  Refresher courses take 15-30 minutes to complete.

You will upload your SafeSport certificate of completion to your Risk Management application each year. 

What Information Do I Provide When Registering for Risk Management?

The following information is REQUIRED:

First and Last Name, Date of Birth, Social Security, Green Card, or Visa number, Gender, Address, City and County of Residence, State, Zip Code, Home phone number, and email address.

Previous addresses are required if you have lived less than 5 years at your current address.

You must answer all questions truthfully.  FAILURE TO PROVIDE TRUTHFUL, ACCURATE, ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS ON YOUR RISK MANAGEMENT APPLICATION AND ON ANY SUPPORTING INFORMATION PROVIDED ON YOUR RISK MANAGEMENT APPLICATION COULD RESULT IN THE IMMEDIATE DENIAL OF YOUR RISK MANAGEMENT APPLICATION.

YOU MUST ASSIGN YOURSELF TO THE MEMBER ASSOCIATION YOU WILL BE PARTICIPATING WITH EACH YEAR.

Other information:

Only the NCYSA Risk Management Coordinators and NCYSA Risk Management Administrators have access to SS, Green Card or Visa #’s. The local associations DO NOT have access to this information nor does the remainder of the NCYSA staff.

Minors (Under Age 18) Registering with Risk Management

Anyone under the age of 18 who wishes to volunteer or to assist with a team must register with the risk management program.

The registration form requires a parent or guardian to submit information.

A background check is not performed until an individual turns 18 years of age. It is the responsibility of the Association’s Risk Management Coordinator to submit individuals for a background check when their 18th birthday occurs.

Minors must complete Youth Athlete Abuse Prevention Training provided by the US Center for SafeSport that is appropriate for the age of the minor volunteer, not the age of the players the minor will be working with at that association.

What is Safe Sport?

NCYSA and all amateur sports organization are required by law to provide training to volunteers and minors regarding Sexual Abuse Training and Safe Sport provides that training.

What is Sport Gait?

NCYSA and all youth sports organizations are required by law to educate its membership regarding concussions, and to monitor potential TBI when participating on municipal and county properties.

Sport Gait will assist in helping you monitor your players and keep them and their families notified of potential injuries.
