Safe HavenĀ® Child & Volunteer Protection Program

Since our program is all-volunteer, all of our members are screened before becoming involved in our program and required to take Safe Haven® training. Safe Haven is an AYSO program designed to address a growing need for child and volunteer protection.

There are four elements in the Safe Haven intervention cycle. These are intended to stop child abuse and its agents before they get into the program:
  • Create Policies
  • Screen Volunteers
  • Train Volunteers
  • Promote Education and Awareness

Volunteer Protection Act of 1997

This law grants immunity from certain types of prosecution for volunteers who meet its requirements. In order to receive full protection under the law, AYSO volunteers need three things:

  • They must be properly trained and certified.
  • They must be performing duties as laid out in a position description.
  • They must act within the scope of AYSO’s Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines.

AYSO Certification

AYSO’s goal is to provide certification training for all its volunteers. Certification offers the hope that every AYSO child will be treated with understanding, compassion, and respect.
