Hello Coach (or Assistant Coach, or Manager),
If you have not filled out your coach/manager application for our competitive teams, please do so by clicking our Competitive Coaching/Manager link.
There are 3 steps that must be completed as part of ASA’s Risk Management Protocol this year:
- Your background check must be submitted through Gotsport (this is a yearly occurance). Please reference this article for guidance to complete this step.
- SafeSport must be completed yearly (if you completed last year, then you only have to do a refresher course), and it must be accessed through GotSport. You must use the same email you used last year if you are returning or you will register as a new coach when the link takes you directly to SafeSport. Once you complete the course, it will mark this requirement as complete in your profile. Please reference this article for guidance to complete this step.
- CoachSafely is required by the new law passed in 2019 in Alabama and you will need to watch your email for a link to come through. We will send your email address to the state parks and recreation board and they will send you the link to get started. After you complete the certification please email your certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be marked completed and you will be ready to coach.
For those wondering about the CDC Heads up, it is now covered by the information in CoachSafely and will no longer be required.
Thanks for your help and we can’t wait to see you on the pitch this season,
DC Inferno Staff
