Risk Management

YDSC 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

YDSC 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 YDSC activity.

  • Approved and current Massachusetts Youth Soccer background check
  • The Massachusetts Youth Soccer Athlete and Participant Safety Policy sets the standards for all Organization Members
  • Valid concussion training certificate
  • Valid SafeSport training certificate
