Each year, all member clubs are required to submit a SafeSport Compliance form in order to verify that the club is in good standing and completed all required risk management. The SafeSport Compliance form attests to all club admins/coaches have a valid background check and SafeSport training.
SafeSport Compliance Form is due to VYSA by September 10, 2023.
If a club is in the process of getting all their coaches and admins completed, there is a place to mark that status on the form. The form must be signed by a club chief representative or Executive Director and sent in to Kristen@vysa.com.
VYSA members are required to comply with Federal Law S.534 Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017, that was signed into law in February of 2018. Completion of Safe Sport Training by every coach and administrator in your club (both recreational and travel) is required by the law and your affirmation of compliance is required by VYSA Safe Sport Policy. Your cooperation in this matter will help to protect your minor athletes from abuse and your club from legal liability
VYSA SafeSport Policy
The VYSA Board of Directors unanimously passed an updated SafeSport policy in August 2019 to include requirements from US Soccer.
All clubs and leagues are required to become familiar and adhere to all aspects of the new policy.
