Risk Management

Sam Snow

A stance from the State Associations Technical Directors on background checks for coaches:
 
Risk management No. 7
We believe all coaches involved in youth soccer should be subject to background checks and that coaching licenses be required as part of the risk management process.  We also believe that each coach should be issued a registration card, certifying that they have completed the risk management process and have attained the required coaching certification.
