Simsbury Soccer Club

Instructions for Volunteers

Every person who has contact with your players (Coach, Assistant Coach, Manager) must complete the following steps before they can be background checked and added to the Roster.

Please complete ALL as soon as possible. It takes a few days for the background check to be run. It is not automation so it is important that you email the Registrar to let them know when you are done.

1. Register

You first need to register as a volunteer with our organization.

  • Go to our Registration page. Scroll down to Travel Coach & Volunteer Registration and click "Register Now".
  • Log in to the system.
  • Use your FULL LEGAL NAME, complete the registration.

2. Upload Your Photo

Upload a headshot photo of you to your Simsbury Soccer profile.

3. CDC HEADS UP Certification

All volunteers must complete concussion training.

4. SafeSport Certification (Coming Summer 2019)

All volunteers must complete training for athlete safety.

  • Go to www.safesport.org and sign in or register
  • Select US Soccer as your NGB
  • Enter the following access code: YC3E-6P5G-YYIL-CS2M
  • Complete, at a minimum, the "Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education" certificate or do all the modules to gain the "SafeSports Trained" certificate. Save the .PDF and upload to your Simsbury Soccer profile to the icon of the person with the raised hands.

5. Confirm

Email registrar@simsburysoccer.org to let them know you have completed the above steps. Once you do, we will go into the system to confirm you. The background check cannot be run until we confirm you in the system. You cannot be added to the roster and cannot work with the players until all of this is done.
