Sports Safety

Background Checks

Arkansas State Soccer requires all coaches and team managers to submit a background check.  Do not allow parents/other adults to assist with practices or games unless they have completed a background check.  Only adults listed on the roster have a valid background check. Coaches and team managers are also required to take the Center for Disease Control Heads Up! Concussion Course in order to be added to a roster.
