Welcome to the MA Safe Soccer Platform
Mass Youth Soccer believes there is nothing is more important than the safety of our children. We greatly appreciate the roles that administrators, coaches, referees and volunteers play in offering youth athletes from all backgrounds the opportunity to play soccer. An integral part of these roles is taking steps to ensure the safety of the participants. Collectively, we are responsible for providing a playing environment that is healthy, non-threatening, and free from emotional, physical or sexual abuse.
This section of our website contains the information and resources to help adult participants and volunteers keep the kids participating in Mass Youth Soccer programs safe. This includes:
Parents also play an important role in the prevention of misconduct and abuse in sports.
