Risk Management Presentation- Delivered at the 2013 MSYSA Admin Workshop
Every Coach, Assistant Coach, Manager, Trainer, (League) Board Member, Referee, Volunteer and any other individual who is expected to have regular contact with children must certify for Risk Management to participate in MSYSA.
- Apply for the first time ($10 fee)
- Reapply/Recertify an expired Clearance ($10 fee)
- Print your Approved Clearance through your GotSoccer profile (no charge)
Risk Management certification or "Background Checks" are maintained through GotSoccer. If you need a Gotsoccer account, please contact your member League or Club to have one established on your behalf. *If you are a REFEREE, please click here for more information on obtaining your Gotsoccer profile.
What to expect: Once you've established a Gotsoccer account, log in and on the grey toolbar at the top, select "background checks" (in white text). The grey "Submit New Report" button will begin the application page. Fill out the form with all LEGAL identification information. Upon submission of your application, you will have the ability to view the status as it is processed. It takes approximately 1-3 business days to complete. Once it reads Approved in green, you may print your RM card - the "Report Number" indicated is also your RM number. Please note that Risk Management runs a two-year duration, at which point requires recertification. The Report Number or "RM" number will change each time you recertify or reapply.
Social Security Number Required
The only applicants who can apply without supplying a Social Security number are those who were born and/or currently live in another country and do not have a Social Security number. Such applicants need to send in a completed paper application to the MSYSA State Office along with a $10 check or money order made payable to MSYSA. Please note that paper applications take longer to process than online submissions. All others are required to supply their SSN in order to become Risk Management certified.
No Refunds For Minors
The MSYSA Risk Management system will only certify adults who are 18+ years old. If you are not at least 18 years of age on the day you apply, your application will not be processed and the $10 application fee will not be refunded.
All your information contained in the risk management application, including your SSN, will only be used for the purposes of running a National Background Check and is required by our provider. Information is kept secure at all times utilizing a 128-bit encryption and double-password protected application; all data transfers are encrypted and all paper forms are destroyed within 60 days.
