Every two years adults who interact with the youth members of Soccer Rhode Island must undergo a National Background check. Soccer Rhode Island uses First Advantage to process our National Background checks. All records that require review are run weekly on Fridays. Any coach that enters yes to any of the 3 qualifying questions automatically enters the review process.
Soccer-RI's Risk Management Policy
Before each and every practice, scrimmage or game an adult from each team at the field must check both goals to be sure that the GOALs are securely anchored.
