It is important to note that the Cal South Coaches Education Program is not linked directly to the Cal South Risk Management Program.
For instance, in order for a coach of a competitive team to direct their team from the coach's box, that coach must possess a U.S. Soccer coaching license as well as complete the Cal South Risk Management Program. Furthermore, all competitive coaches must possess a coaching license - at minimum a U.S. Soccer "E" license (competitive) or Youth License (recreational).
As part of the Cal South Risk Management Program, all program administrators will no longer be required to possess and display their plastic risk management badges. All of the requisite coaching education and risk management information will be printed directly on their US Youth Soccer Member Passes.
Cal South's KIDSAFE Risk Management Program & Live Scan Fingerprinting
Cal South has once again made advancements in the KIDSAFE Risk Management program by transitioning to Live Scan fingerprint technology.
This switch solidifies Cal South's position as having one of the most progressive Risk Management programs in the country with the intent on keeping every one of Cal South's 204,000 members KIDSAFE! Live Scan digital submissions provide the quickest way to submit and process background checks through the Department of Justice (DOJ).
They also provide for seamless integration into the California DOJ subsequent arrest notification program, providing the following benefits:
• Administrators only have to be fingerprinted once for the lifetime of their involvement in Cal South Soccer as long as they are involved in concurrent years.
What does this mean for your League & Administrators?
• Quicker DOJ turnaround on all fingerprint submissions
