SafeSport Mandatory Training

SafeSport Act Mandatory Training  (Effective January 1, 2022)

The 2017 SafeSport Act has expanded Mandated Reporters to include adults authorized to interact with children. Due to this expansion, that includes AYSO and it requires training on child abuse and mandated reporting.

Effective, January 1, 2022, U.S. Soccer will no longer allow equivalent training* and has mandated SafeSport training.

What does this mean for AYSO? 

AYSO will comply with the federal SafeSport training requirement and we will integrate with the U.S. Soccer Education and Learning Center as well as their Player Health and Safety Courses.

The training is the full course in the first year, which is 90 minutes, and repeated every three years, followed by annual updates in the in-between years, which are 30 minutes.

How will it work?

  1. Login to your Sports Connect account on
  2. Click 'Volunteer' on the left-hand side of the screen.
  3. Click on the small square next to 'SafeSport', this will check it off.
