Risk Management

Wyoming Soccer Association has developed a risk management program intended to identify and assess potential risks to our soccer community and to then monitor and minimize the probability and/or impact those risks could pose.

Managing risk includes simple things, like making sure players wear their shin guards to the sensitive duty of background checking coaches, volunteers and staff. The risk management program is based on the US Youth Soccer KidSafe Program that provides guidelines for creating the safest possible environment for WSA’s young participants, which include players and referees.

The objectives of the WSA KidSafe Program are:

  1. To review and recommend policies and procedures to ensure the safety of all participants

  2. To provide a background check program for volunteers, employees and others who are entrusted with the supervision and care of players and participants

  3. Assure all background check information is maintained in a secure and private manner, and within the law

  4. To provide secondary medical insurance for injuries suffered while participating in Wyoming Soccer Association activities

  5. To provide policy recommendations and education for Wyoming Soccer Association member associations to minimize liabilities and other manageable risks including financial risk

The program is established through the bylaws and Rules and Procedures of WSA.
