On February 14, 2018 the President signed the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017, which is aimed at protecting amateur athletes from sexual abuse. Every person age eighteen (18) and above who at any time could be expected in the performance of their duties be around any registered youth player, must complete the Safe Sport Certification. This is mandatory to be placed on a youth roster as a coach, assistant coach, manager, or trainer. If a player on a youth team is to turn 18 within the seasonal year (August 1 - July 31) they will be required to complete the Safe Sport before they can be added to any team roster, failure to do so will result in the player not allowed to play. Also, any board member of an Adult Member Club/Association is required to have Safe Sport Certification, Approved Background check & CDC/Concussion Course.
