Risk Management

BSA considers the safety of youth soccer players and others involved in youth soccer to be of paramount importance. We have adopted a breadth of policies surrounding player safety such as:

  • Mandatory background checks, concussion training and SafeSport training for all adult coaches, managers and club administrators
  • Mandatory background checks for all referees
  • Concussion policy
  • Weather policy
  • Goal safety policy

BSA has standardized eligibility requirements for all adult participants. Adult coaches, trainers, volunteers and team managers who do not possess the eligibility requirements are ineligible to participate any a BSA activity.
