Due to changes in the US Center for SafeSport and US Soccer Federation policy, athletes 18 or over who may interact with Minor Athletes, have more responsibilities to Milton Soccer/Mass Youth Soccer, under state and federal law than they had as a minor.
What does this mean?
- Athletes that are 18 or will turn 18 during a current playing season and play on a team with minor athletes are required to take the SafeSport Core Abuse Prevention training in order to participate. Players who are currently 17 years old may get a head start on this requirement and take the training with parental consent prior to their 18th birthday.
- To Follow US Soccer policy, these athletes must be crosschecked against the Commonwealth of Mass SORI database, the US Soccer, and SafeSport Disqualification list once they turn 18th. Mass Youth Soccer will conduct this activity.
