NEW COACH (Volunteer) REGISTRATION PROCESS
Coaching registration is again now again part of your child's registration a step called "Register Volunteer".
You will be notified if/when your training is needed upon Volunteer registration. Since previous certifications were not imported, it's likely Iowa Soccer will ask for them to be re-uploaded.
BACKGROUND CHECK, AND REQUIRED TRAINING
All assigned coaches and assistant coaches to an Iowa Soccer registered team must complete the volunteer disclosure form and have a background check ran every two years. You will be notified if/when your training is needed.
Concussion Training Certification must be completed every two years.
SafeSport Training/Abuse Prevention
