Safe Sport Training

What are the requirements for NGB's and NGB-Affiliated?

Prevention Training: Offer and provide consistent training to adult members who are in contact with amateur athletes who are minors. Currently there is no mandated training provider. NJ Youth Soccer is aware of several program options for awareness/prevention training of sexual abuse. Until there is a mandate or law change, you may use whatever program your organization deems will meet this training requirement. Some programs are currently available no cost to the adult or organization. Most programs will take between 75 to 90 minutes to complete.
