Kidsafe Mission Statement and Overview of the program from the Nebraska State Soccer website
The Kidsafe Program is a program to foster safe circumstances for every person, and especially every child, who participates in a Nebraska State Soccer Activity. Designed to inform all volunteers, contractors and staff concerning the risks associated with youth programs. To promote health, safety and protection of children in the game of soccer, Nebraska State Soccer has adopted the following objectives:
1. To identify all volunteers, contractors and staff;
2. To develop and communicate the Kidsafe Program to all coaches and Affiliate Members;
3. To monitor the implementation of the above objectives.
The programs intent is to exclude from participation in Nebraska State Soccer or US Youth Soccer activities, at a minimum, all persons who have been convicted of crimes of violence or crimes against persons.
All volunteers, contractors and staff will submit a Disclosure Form on-line at the State’s web site. When the form is submitted it will go into a Disclosure Form Database. No coach will be allowed to be added to a roster unless they have filled out the Disclosure Form. A list of volunteers, contractors and staff will be submitted for criminal history checks (background checks). The State
Association will also do criminal history checks (background) on all staff, including ODP and Coaching Staff. If there are risk management concerns on any checks the State Coordinator will work with the Affiliate Coordinator to clear up any concerns.
This needs to be completed once a year (every Fall)
Once completed and submitted, you will get a confirmation number. Please email the confirmation number or a copy of the confirmation page to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The state system will not let us print your official roster or player passes until this has been taken care of.
