NSS Partners with Player's Health

Nebraska State Soccer is excited to announce a new partnership with Players Health, a leading risk management services firm specializing in youth sports organizations. NSS will be utilizing the PH Protect application for abuse reporting and prevention training, as well as an application for managing background screenings and concussion training. These applications, when combined, create a real-time dashboard for sports administrators to have a simple look at their organization’s safety status.


PH Protect is a dashboard for organizations to manage real-time incident reports and ensure their abuse reporting, incident protocols and policies are being followed. Athletes, coaches, guardians, and volunteers can use PH Protect as a secure and private way to report abuse, allowing the organization to track everything in a centralized and reliable place. In addition, Player’s Health also manages all documents and records on behalf of Nebraska State Soccer, ensuring all incidents and abuse reports are handled properly and timely, followed by investigations where necessary.


Player’s Health offers an additional application built for managing background checks, protecting athletes and organizations by thoroughly investigating all screening subjects through a variety of databases and search parameters. By integrating with other Player’s Health applications, this dashboard shows sports administrators in which coaches and staff members have completed the proper screenings in order to be compliant with policies from the US Center for Safesport.


“We are excited to partner with Player’s Health to prioritize and streamline the health and safety programs required for our members. Programs like SafeSport, Concussion training and fulfilling background checks on volunteers are important to us, and our members, to protect our players both on and off the pitch. We fully believe this partnership will be pivotal in helping our club administrators ensure all of our coaches, team managers and volunteers are fully trained before working with our youth athletes.”


Along with these applications, Nebraska State Soccer will be able to utilize the SafeSport training through their partnership with Player’s Health. Appropriate for any adult, this training is used to inform coaches, staff, and volunteers at NSS how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse and other misconduct.
