Adult Athletes

Effective for the 2021/22 seasonal year, there are new “Adult Athlete” Safe Soccer (risk) national requirements that all members of U.S. Soccer must implement by January 1, 2022.  We understand the impact this has on our members and how challenging these requirements are. 

“Adult Athletes” (defined as “Adult Participants”) are athletes who are 18 years of age or older who have regular contact participating on teams with “Minor Athletes” (this includes, but is not limited to training, scrimmages, games, etc.).  “Adult Athletes” must complete annual SafeSport training. There is no substitute for this requirement. SafeSport training will be the only accepted training module to fulfill this requirement for our 18-year-old players on youth teams.

If an Adult Athlete is found to NOT have completed the required training through the process outlined below, his/her player pass will be suspended indefinitely (current and all future seasonal years) and only reinstated upon completion of SafeSport.


Players Turning 18-Years-Old During the Seasonal Year
Players can NOT take the training PRIOR to their 18th birthday. Once a player turns 18-years-old during the seasonal year, he/she has 30 days to complete the Adult Athlete Requirements.


Mandatory Reporters

“Adult Athletes” now have certain requirements to complete by law, including being mandatory reporters.

If you have questions about Adult Athlete requirements or need assistance completing the requirements, please contact Molly Vaughan - [email protected].


Required Training

DO NOT COMPLETE THIS PROCESS UNTIL ATHLETES ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE



Adult Athletes: Start by requesting an Adult Athlete Risk Mgt account above. Use an email address specific/unique to you. It’s important you DO NOT use an email address that has been used by another family member or someone who has used the same email address to take their SafeSport training. 

Within 24 hours, you will receive an email from Player’s Health with a link to login and complete your risk. Once in your account you will be required to complete the SafeSport Core Training.



**If your team is going to regionals or nationals and has players 18 years or older they must complete this in order to participate.
