The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Reporting Misconduct

Mass Youth Soccer has partnered with Players Health for reporting violations of prohibited conduct and or prevention policies.

An Adult Participant who learns of information or reasonably suspects that an incident of Emotional or Physical Misconduct (including Bullying, Stalking, Hazing, and Harassment) or a violation of the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (MAAPP) or other proactive policies has occurred must report the violation to Mass Youth Soccer via the Players Health Portal and to their participating organization; reporting steps are noted below.

  • Sexual Misconduct and child abuse must be reported to the Center for SafeSport and Mass Youth Soccer; review the Reporting Abuse webpage for more information.

Mass Youth Soccer's prohibited conduct and prevention policies (MAAPP) are outlined in Appendix A & B of the Mass Youth Soccer’s Safe Sport Athlete & Participant Safety Policy.


1. File a report with Mass Youth Soccer via Players Health by clicking HERE.

  • Note: Players Health will work with you to make sure all applicable required reports and steps are completed.

2. Inform your participating organization’s President and/or Risk Manager.

IMPORTANT:  Making a report online to Players Health will alert the State Risk Manager and assist Mass Youth Soccer in taking any appropriate action (temporary measures).

As required by the SafeSport Act, Mass Youth Soccer does not tolerate retaliation of any kind. Any Adult Participant who makes a good faith report will not be subject to retaliation, including harassment, as a result of making a report. The SafeSport Act also includes qualified immunity for good faith reports. The obligation to report is not always satisfied by making an initial report and an Adult Participant is required to report supplemental information of which they become aware that may be relevant in a pending investigation.
