NTSSA Adult Criminal Background Checks
(All background checks expire at midnight on May 31)
NTSSA Rule 3.6.1, sets the following deadline regarding adult volunteers:
- Every person over the age of seventeen (17), who at any time could be expected in the performance of their duties to be alone with any registered youth player, must in the manner prescribed by current NTSSA procedures, annually provide the necessary information required by NTSSA so that a Criminal Background Check may be obtained. By their participation, Adult Volunteers agree and consent to having Criminal Background Checks performed as deemed necessary by NTSSA.
- For purposes of this procedure, at a minimum, all coaches, assistant coaches, managers, trainers, referees, volunteer administrators, board members, and staff/employees are included. Others may be included if they may be alone with registered youth players.
NTSSA SafeSport Certification
(All Safe Sport certifications expire at midnight on May 31)
On February 14, 2018 the President signed the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017, which is aimed at protecting amateur athletes from sexual abuse.
Every person age eighteen (18) and above who at any time could be expected in the performance of their duties be around any registered youth player, must complete the SafeSport Certification. This is mandatory to be placed on a youth roster as a coach, assistant coach, manager, or trainer. If a player on a youth team turns 18 during the current soccer year, they do not have to complete Safe Sport during that current soccer year. Also, any board member of an Adult Member Association is required to have SafeSport Certification.
