Along with US Youth Soccer, it is the intent of Wyoming Youth Soccer (WYS) and its affiliated clubs to protect to the fullest extent possible the participants of WYS programs and sanctioned events. Consequently, any adult volunteer or employee seeking to participant in such programs and events, who will be responsible for the supervision, care and guidance of a minor, must meet the requirements of a WYS adult participant.
This process begins at the club level. When an adult seeks to participate, a profile – such as a coach, assistant coach, referee or team official, is created by the club’s registrar. An email is then sent asking the adult volunteer or employee to complete a WYS Background Information Disclosure and authorize and consent to a criminal history background check. Instructions on how to do that are included in the email. It is very important that prospective members answer the questions honestly. WYS is most concerned with arrests, plea bargains and convictions resulting from crime(s) of violence, crime(s) against a person or child, felony convictions of any kind, along with drug offenses, DUI/DWI and/or a MIPs.
Wyoming Youth Soccer and its affiliated clubs appreciate all of our adult volunteers and staff and do not want this process to discourage you from participating. Please be understanding and help us help protect all participants. If you have concerns or questions about your rights during this process please contact the state office or check out some of the links on this page.
