Mission Statement and Overview of the Program

The Kidsafe Program is a program to foster safe circumstances for every person, and especially every child, who participates in a Nebraska State Soccer Activity. Designed to inform all volunteers, contractors and staff concerning the risks associated with youth programs. To promote health, safety and protection of children in the game of soccer, Nebraska State Soccer has adopted the following objectives:

    1. To identify all volunteers, contractors and staff;
    2. To develop and communicate the Kidsafe Program to all coaches and Affiliate Members;
    3. To monitor the implementation of the above objectives.

The programs intent is to exclude from participation in Nebraska State Soccer or US Youth Soccer activities, at a minimum, all persons who have been convicted of crimes of violence or crimes against persons.

 
Overview:
All volunteers, contractors and staff will submit a background check on-line at the State's web site. No coach will be allowed to be added to a roster unless they have filled out the background check. Nebraska State Soccer will require all registered coaches to complete a background check.

The Nebraska State Soccer Board will determine the costs and billing each yearly registration cycle no later than the AGM.
