What is safe soccer?
Ohio Soccer Association is focused on creating a safe playing environment for all youth soccer players in Ohio. One of our roles is to educate our member leagues and clubs on their compliance responsibilities, and to provide league/club staff, coaches, parents and athletes the means by which to fulfill their legal requirements.
To make this simple to understand, we have broken the requirements down into four ‘pillars’ that we term ‘Safe Soccer’ (formerly: risk or risk management). These pillars apply to all, regardless of recreational or competitive affiliation.
|Background Check||Coaches, trainers, league/club staff, board members|
|Lindsay’s Law||Players/parents, coaches|
|Concussions (Return to Play)||Players/parents, coaches|
|SafeSport||Coaches, trainers, league/club staff, board members|
In order to complete the Safe Soccer requirements, please reach out to your league or club for information. Coaches or other cited adults may visit this page for step-by-step instructions.
Ohio Soccer Association provides the ability for its member leagues or clubs to be fully compliant in all Safe Soccer requirements through our partner platforms; Demosphere (players) and Player’s Health (coaches).
