Challenge Team Managers

Everything Team Managers need to know before, during and after the season!

I. Risk Management (Required)

All head coaches, assistant coaches, team managers and any other adult with a role on a Challenge team, must be "risk managed", which means complete and pass North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA)'s Risk Management system. This must be done before practices start and you MUST notify your area administrator so they can begin the process of Risk Management and perform a background check.

II. Abuse Prevention Training (Required)

In response to the new federal law enacted on February 14, 2018, all team officials are required to complete the Abuse Prevention Training video and quiz prior to being added to a challenge team roster and to be validated with their team official card. Team officials are required to complete the child abuse training program and a background check before they can volunteer/coach/represent NCFC Youth.
