NSSA requires, and BSC supports, background checks for all BSC personnel that interact with our soccer players – coaches, trainers, referees, volunteers, and BSC staff. These background checks are done annually so that you can be secure in the knowledge that no “suspect” individual will interact with your child within the confines of BSC’s soccer programs.
BSC supports the U.S. Center for SafeSport which is an independent nonprofit committed to building a sports community where participants can work and learn together free of emotional, physical and sexual abuse and misconduct. BSC requires all coaches and trainers complete SafeSport training on an annual basis. SafeSport training focuses on three areas to recognize the red flags of emotional, physical and sexual misconduct, and then what to do if abuse does occur:
1. Mandatory Reporting
2. Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
3. Emotional and Physical Misconduct
