SafeSport Certification Process


On Feb. 14, 2018, the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 was signed into law and became effective immediately.

The bill amends the Victims of Child Abuse Act of 1990 to extend the duty to report suspected child abuse, including sexual abuse, within 24 hours to all adults who are authorized to interact with minor or amateur athletes by a national governing body, a member of a national governing body, or an amateur sports organization that participates in interstate or international amateur athletic competition. These individuals are called “covered individuals” in the new legislation.

2. Finish the registration process, and take the online training, which consists of three modules: 1) Mandatory Reporting: Understanding Your Responsibilities; 2) Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education; and 3) Emotional and Physical Misconduct. Completion will take approximately 90 minutes, but it does not need to be done at once. You may save your progress and continue where you left off at a later time.

3. Once all three modules are completed, you will be able to download a master “SafeSport Trained” certificate from your dashboard. Save this certificate. 

Important distinction: While you will receive a certificate after each of the three modules, uploading one of those does not suffice. US Club Soccer requires uploading the master “SafeSport Trained” certificate, indicating that all three modules have been completed.

COVID-19 UPDATE

 
Hello NISL Members, 
 
During these uncertain and trying times, the NISL will continue to keep you updated as soon as developments are made. The NISL will only consider operating a league for its membership when the expert public health advice from reliable organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) make a decision that permits it safe for children to participate in NISL activities, whatever that length of time may be. Caution is our safety instruction to all.  Once the league has deemed it safe to resume activities based on the advice from these public health organizations we will update all of our members and we will provide sufficient notice prior to the start of any event or game. To be clear, all league events are suspended until further notice.
