Risk Management

Risk management consists of the actions taken by DC Stoddert Soccer to minimize risk associated with the playing and administration of the game of soccer. The Board of Directors of DC Stoddert Soccer studies the areas where risk may exist and proposes policy and education to mitigate risk. 

Our risk management policies address 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 young athletes from long-term health injuries.


As an affiliate of the United States Youth Soccer Association, DC Stoddert Soccer participates in the "KidSafe Program" to identify any adult (18 years or older) who, because of their conduct, should not be allowed to participate in the soccer program and have contact with children.

Under the KidSafe program, persons who hold a formal position, paid or volunteer, in DC Stoddert Soccer such as coach, assistant coach, team manager, referee, board member, etc., are required to respond to a questionnaire that asks whether they have ever been arrested or convicted of sexual abuse, physical abuse, exploitation of a minor, currently uses illegal drugs, is subject to a restraining order or civil action relating to child or domestic abuse or violence. DC Stoddert Soccer will make a case-by-case determination whether to prohibit a person who answers any other part of the questionnaire affirmatively from participating in the soccer program. It is important for parents to understand the limitations of the KidSafe program.

For more information on KidSafe, please see the VYSA (Virginia Youth Soccer Association) website here.
