THANK YOU for volunteering your time with SMSA to support the youth soccer players in our community!

Clearances / Background Checks (Required)

There are a few things we need to get you ready to be a travel coach this season!

1.  Clearances - SMSA MUST have a complete set of clearances on file to work with youth.

2. State Registration - All of our Board Members, Travel Coaches and Team Managers are required by our state governing body, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA), to register as an SMSA club volunteer in their registration system (GotSport). In addition to submitting the required clearances, coaches & team managers must take two online web courses on Concussions and Abuse Prevention (annual requirements) as well as complete an annual Risk Management form.

3. US Soccer Education - ALL coaches are asked to complete the appropriate courses based on the level of coaching for the upcoming season.



                    All coach requirements MUST be completed before practices begin!

Concussion Training (Required)

Concussion training - Safety is a top priority and it’s important that all of our coaches have the tools to recognize any potential safety concerns, especially when it comes to dealing with concussions in youth sports.

SMSA uses the CDC’s Head’s Up for Coaches training on Concussion in Youth Sports that may be accessed at the following link - https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/pdfs/youthsports/Create_an_Account_CDC-TRAIN_HEADSUP.pdf

If you have already completed a CDC concussion training for another sport or activity, and have a certificate of completion that is current within one year, you may submit that in lieu of taking (or re-taking) the training.

Coordinators

Thank you again for your commitment to SMSA and for volunteering! All coaching requirements should be completed and submitted as soon as possible to your age group coordinator.
