Risk Management

RISK MANAGEMENT

Risk Management is the actions taken by Georgia Soccer and its affiliates to minimize risk associated with the playing and administration of the game of soccer. Georgia Soccer's Risk Management Committee's role is to study the areas where risk may exist and to propose policy and education to mitigate that risk. 

Risk Management addresses 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 the state association and of each member organization and their assets.

Georgia Soccer's Board of Directors made it policy that all person 18 years and older who coach or referee, take part in an administrative role where players 17 and younger play must have a background check.
