NORTH TEXAS REQUIRES THAT A RISK MANAGEMENT DISCLOSURE FORM BE FILLED OUT ONCE A YEAR
(All Background Checks Expire on June 1.)
Required for Coaches and Managers to be listed on roster
North Texas uses GotSoccer as their exclusive Risk Management Software.
Once you are registered in Got Soccer:
You will be sent an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a user name and link to access the login page. You will have to login and click on "Can't remember password", a password will be sent to you immediately. It is mandatory that everyone completes the background check. The system will not allow me to add any adult to the roster until the background check has been completed and approved.
North Texas Soccer Clubs :
Protection of the children is a priority for all of us at North Texas Soccer and we know it is for you.
In previous emails to our member associations, we have highly recommended that each association distribute information to adults listed on youth rosters, board members, and employees so that they can follow these directions to complete their SafeSport Course Certification.
As of July 1, 2019 SafeSport Course Certification will be mandatory for all Coaches, Managers, Administrators (Member Association and Clubs), Volunteers, Employees, and Referees.
For this first season of mandatory course certification, Fall 2019, coaches and managers may be rostered without completed certification in emergency cases. Reminders should be sent to coaches and managers to have full compliance no later than December 31, 2019. Beginning January 1, 2020 coaches and managers must have completed certification before being rostered to a youth team or to remain on the roster of a youth team.
SafeSport Course Certification is valid for two (2) years after completion. Currently we are working with GotSoccer on a way to have these expire on May 31 (in a two (2) year increment) in conjunction with background checks and will let you know more once we finalize this. We would like to encourage everyone to access this course through his or her GotSoccer profile to insure course certification reflects as completed in his or her profile. If you have previously taken the course and your profile does not reflect completion for this course please send in a copy of your certificates to Brittany Campbell, email@example.com and she will have your account updated.
We have an instruction sheet you can place on your website and/or send out to your members concerning Background Check, SafeSport Course Certification and CDC Heads-up Concussion Course. Click here for the link
