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.

Risk Management

Risk Management is the collection of actions taken by Georgia Soccer and its affiliates to minimize risk associated with the playing and administration of the game of soccer.

Georgia Soccer's Risk Management Committee's role is to study the areas where risk may exist and to propose policy and education to mitigate that risk. 

Risk Management addresses a number of issues which include, but are not limited to, background checks for those involved with youth players, field and game safety and the protection of the state association and of each member organization and their assets.

Please use these resources to assist in mitigating risk for your organization.

 

 Safe Sport
Any affiliate of Georgia Soccer who allows players under the age of 18 to play in their league, falls under the Safe Sport Authorization Act passed by Congress in February. All adults with regular contact with minors within a sports-related environment are required by law to complete Safe Sport training.

To learn more about the Safe Sport Act and how it affects and relates to youth soccer, please visit www.safesoccer.com.
