PLAYER SAFETY INITIATIVES
U.S. YOUTH FUTSAL & U.S. SOCCER
U.S. Youth Futsal is committed to creating safe and respectful sporting environments free of abuse and harassment for our youth athletes. As a member of US Soccer, we have an obligation to ensure that every adult coach and manager that is in direct contact with children completes a background check and the required Safesport training. We are excited to announce that we have created a new tool in HTG to make this an efficient process for our league and program operations.
ALL COACHES AND MANAGERS WHO WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE COLUMBUS FUTSAL YOUTH LEAGUE MUST COMPLETE THE FOLLOW TWO-PART PROCESS:
BACKGROUND CHECK REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS
The USYF background check process has two parts:
1. Safe Sport - must be completed prior to background check registration
To enroll in the free course, please click here to begin your Safe Sport training. You will need to use the US Soccer private access code YC3E-6P5G-YYIL-CS2M.
You can take the 90-minute course all at once, or over a period of time as SafeSport will save your progress.
Once the SafeSport 3 modules are completed, you will have earned a master “SafeSport Trained” certificate. Please download this and save as USYF will require you to upload your certificate in your HTG background check registration.
If you have completed the Safe Sport course as part of another background check process, you may upload the certificate you received at that time. You can always log into your Safe Sport account and download your most recent certificate www.safesport.org.
