US Youth Soccer and Abuse Prevention Systems are working together to reduce the risk of child sexual abuse in youth soccer.
How to Get Started
Scroll down to click ‘Sign Up’, then select the ‘APS Membership’ option, using the coupon code USYS2020. You will not be charged for an annual membership fee or Sexual Abuse Awareness Training links. Follow the instructions to designate a Safety System Administrator (SSA) and create ‘tags’ for ease of organizing, filtering and sorting.
Now you are ready to import trainees. You may enter trainees individually or have an APS staff member import trainees in batches. The initial batch import will allow you to apply tags and automatically send training links to your staff members, coaches and referees.
Log In and Add Users
Once the online Control Panel is set up and populated, you are able to train, track and renew Awareness Training for your staff members, coaches, and referees. To add trainees with the Control Panel in upcoming seasons, simply log in and click ‘Manage Users’ on the left hand menu. Click the green ‘Add User’ button and enter the appropriate information for each trainee.
*Contact the APS office to obtain an import document to complete batch imports.
Click ‘Online Training’, then ‘Send Training’ on the left hand menu. From this screen you are able to send training links by checking the box of those you wish to train, then selecting ‘Submit’. Choose ‘Sexual Abuse Awareness Training – Youth Sports’ and click ‘Send’.
Trainees will receive an email with a personalized link to view the training and complete a short quiz.
Contact an APS staff member to learn more about the features and functionality of this powerful new online resource.
