Risk Management Overview


SAY Soccer intends to prevent the physical, emotional and sexual abuse of children by the coaches, referees, players, administrators, and parents. SAY seeks to create a welcoming and nurturing environment for those in attendance and has zero tolerance for those whose actions may jeopardize the safety, health or innocence of a minor. SAY Soccer is committed to maintaining an environment for our members that is free from all forms of discrimination, including harassment, on the basis of any legally protected status.



Times Two Policy

All SAY Areas will require no less than two adults (preferably unrelated), per team, to be present at all team functions such as games, practices, picnics, etc. No Exceptions! The adults assigned can be a combination of coaches, parents, board members or other persons over the age of 18. While the focus of this policy is the child it also provides protection for the volunteers.

Background Screening

Any individual that may have unsupervised access to children participating in a SAY sanctioned activity, for the purpose of assisting in that activity. (This does not include parents observing their children during such activities.) While coaches best fit this description, other volunteers (such as team parent, officials, board members, etc.) could be covered under this program as well. The minimum acceptable standard is for all coaches and assistant coaches to fill out a SAY Volunteer application annually.
